Kim Kardashian SLAMMED for promoting pricey SKIMS line as fans suffer under coronavirus pandemic – The Sun
KIM Kardashian is being slammed for promoting her SKIMS line after most of her followers lost their jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the country.
Fans even criticized her for only donating $1M to families who have been affected because of COVID-19.
Kim K took to social media to promote her SKIMS line – as she has done since launching it, but fans weren't having it this time around and slammed her for even posting the picture.
Along with a picture of her in the skin-colored shapewear, she wrote: "What you’ve been waiting for: the SKIMS pieces that revolutionized the shapewear industry are back and now available to shop in sizes XXS – 5X and in 9 tonal shades.
"With this restock, SKIMS will be able to help bring relief to those affected by COVID-19 by committing to donate $1M to families in need."
And although some fans can afford to purchase her shapewear during the pandemic, others can't and let her know that they didn't have jobs.
One person wrote: "Kim, we don't have jobs."
While another one wrote: "People aren't working … I can't imagine they're buying anything but essentials right now … just saying."
Others criticized her for claiming that they were waiting for the restock.
One fan wrote: "Actually we're waiting for a cure for COVID-19. The last thing we want is shapewear. Kim, there's people dying."
And another demanded she donates more money.
Other fans simply teased her with a famous line from Keeping Up With The Kardashians when Kim was crying over a lost diamond earring and her sister, Kourtney, yelled at her that people were dying in the world.
One specific fan even asked her where would they wear the shapewear when everyone was quarantined.
She asked: "Where are we going to wear this? Around the house?"
The 39-year-old announced a $1 million donation by her shapewear brand to families affected by COVID-19, on Friday.
She said that when the brand restocks on Monday, she will donate the generous sum to those affected by the global pandemic.
Kim said in the statement: “To support Mothers and Children in need during this time, SKIMS is committed to donating $1M to families affected by COVID-19."
She continued: "On Monday, we’re restocking the collection we first launched with, and in doing so, are able to help bring relief to those affected by this pandemic."
The mother of four continued: "I am so grateful to all of you who have supported SKIMS since we first started 6 months ago. It’s been a dream of mine for so long, and has only been possible because of your love for what we do."
And Kim isn't the only Kardashian-Jenner who is donating money for coronavirus relief efforts.
Her sister, Kylie Jenner, donated $1 million to help doctors get face masks, face shields and protective gear.
And their mom, Kris Jenner – along with Kylie – is in talks of making hand sanitizer for hospitals in California.
The 22-year-old makeup mogul has also been pivotal is spread the message to self-isolate to her 167million followers.
