With 139 million followers, Kylie Jenner’s Instagram account is among the most popular on the social media platform, but it looks as if the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star is facing some serious backlash over a recent post.
Earlier in the week, the 21-year-old makeup mogul showed off her new $450,000 Rolls-Royce Phantom on Instagram Stories, writing, “My baby is home safe.”
She followed that up on Friday by posting a photo of herself posing in front of a shiny black sports car, while several other cars can be seen parked in the driveway behind her.
Jenner’s conspicuous flaunting of her wealth did not go over well with everyone, and numerous comments to her post slammed her.
“This world is crazy,” wrote one commenter. “Some people buy 863,367 cars and some people can hardly buy food let alone pay tuition fees for university. It’s a shame to show off but I guess rich people don’t care.”
Another comment read, “2.8 billion people, nearly half of the world’s population, live on less than $2 a day… more than one billion people do not have access to safe water. But you have access to Beautiful cars, [it’s] cool.”
Other similar comments included, “Use your money elsewhere spend it on charity not cars,” and “All those cars and can’t even help the environment out smh.”
Jenner has been on the receiving end of quite a bit of backlash in recent weeks, taken to task for throwing a birthday bash themed to “The Handmaid’s Tale”, allegedly using animal byproducts in her vegan skincare products and for the way she washed her face posting a makeup tutorial video.
