Kardashians clapback at claims they didn't donate to Australian bushfires

Kim and Khloe Kardashian have responded to claims they "didn't donate a penny" after sounding off on social media about the Australian bushfire crisis.

Last week, Kim retweeted several news articles and political tweets about the fires, before adding "climate change is real" with a broken heart emoji.

The backlash for Kim and the other Kardashians who mentioned the crisis was swift, with many online commentators pointing out their frequent use of private jets as hypocrisy.

One since-deleted tweet alleged that the "Kardashian/Jenners talk about climate change/wildfires and do not donate even a penny".

In response, Kim replied: "Nothing gets me more heated than to see people think they know what we donated to and to think we have to publicize everything".

Twitter users were quick to point out that the Kardashians famously "publicise everything else, though".

"The amount of time you guys showcase your luxury things you could showcase some of your good deeds," one tweet read.

Soon after, Khloe chimed in, tweeting "good deeds should be done with intention and not for attention".

"We are all blessed to be able to bless others even if it is in the slightest way. But we do not need to be boastful about that. Be boastful in regards to teaching others how they may be able to help as well," she added.

"We often bring attention to causes and ways you can donate," Khloe continued.

"It's our job to bring awareness to situations so we all can help as a human race. We frequently post/speak about organizations/websites where we can all help save our planet."

Earlier in the week, the youngest of the famous family, Kylie Jenner, was called out for being "disconnected from reality" after she followed a post about Australian wildlife dying with a snap of her Louis Vuitton mink fur slippers.
