Furious: fans went to Twitter to close Kylie’s decision and accuse her of ‘hypocrisy’
MailOnline has contacted representatives of Kylie Jenner for comments.
Kylie has not yet commented on the social media response, but older sister Kim Kardashian, 39, hit a follower on Monday because she claimed the family had not donated to the disaster.
They wrote: ‘nothing makes me more excited than to see the Kardashians / Jenners talk about climate change / forest fires and not even donate a cent. @KimKardashian @khloekardashian @KylieJenner @KendallJenner m @ kourtneykardash
Kim replied, “Nothing excites me more than seeing people think they know what we have given and thinking we should publish everything.”
In November, Kim was labeled as “show deaf” for teasing some “exciting news” for Australian fans on Twitter amid the furious forest fires.
‘Hello Australia! I have some exciting news soon, just in time for the vacation. Can you guess what it is? Keep looking for the big announcement … “Kim Tweeted.
She added in a video: “I am sending you something very special and it is coming very quickly … Stay informed and follow very quickly.”
Many of Kim’s Australian fans were furious with the mail, which seemed to promote the launch of her new scent.
At the time of Kim’s Tweet, there were more than 50 fires in New South Wales and Queensland and a state of emergency had been declared.
She later gave a sincere message to the victims of forest fires during an interview with the Australian breakfast show Sunrise.

After talking extensively about her new scent on the Channel Seven program, Kim concluded her interview with the following: “I just hope everyone is safe and well after all the fires in Australia. We are praying for you here. ”
So far, Australian forest fires have killed 26 people, destroyed more than 2,000 homes and destroyed more than four million hectares of land.
It is estimated that half a billion animals have been swept away in the flames that have been burning through much of Australia’s east coast since October.
Forest fires are common during the summer in the southern hemisphere, and Australians generally take them pragmatically.

But this year’s fires arrived unusually early, fueled by drought and the hottest and driest year in the country on record.
Experts have recently described how two colossal heroes in Victoria and New South Wales could meet to form a ‘mega fire’.
On Kangaroo Island, a retreat off the coast of South Australia for some of the country’s most endangered creatures, teams had arrived to help kill cattle and wildlife injured in the fire.
