The Bag Lady of Hidden Hills: Trolls call Kim Kardashian's 130K giveaway a 'SCAM'
Kim Kardashian has been criticized by Instagram users for flaunting her wealth in a recent giveaway post
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star Kim Kardashian has received some backlash for sharing an image on Instagram. Kim announced a giveaway on her Instagram page on Monday, August 22, in which one chosen individual would get $130,000.
In the picture, the 41-year-old media personality posed in front of a large collection of designer bags. "Who wants to shop like me with $130,000.00 USD?" she captioned the post. "YES you guys, just like before, one of YOU can win a $130,000 pre loaded credit card to spend however you like! Buy a new car, travel, shop?... It's up to you! This is my BIGGEST giveaway with @curatedbusinesses EVER, so ENTER NOW."
She further listed down the steps to enter the giveaway. "1. Go to @curatedbusinesses > You must FOLLOW everyone they are following right now (it only takes 90 seconds to enter).
2. Come back here & tell me the first thing you'll buy if you win?"
Several Instagram users have criticized the celebrity in the comments. A person said, "Are u serious Kim? What kind of tasteless trash is this? It’s not cute." A second commented, "Kim baby people are dying." Another penned, "People are starving." Another one commented, "Kim you just spent all the money I ever made in one photograph."
A few users believed her account was hacked and that the giveaway was a "scam." "It’s astounding a billionaire needs to participate in scams still," one said. Another commented, "You hacked bruh." Many users who wished to win the prize money claimed they would put the funds towards a down payment on a property rather than use them for fancy items. The giveaway winners will be announced on the www.curatedbusinesses.com website by August 31, 2022, according to Kim.
Kim and her family have frequently come under fire for flaunting their money to the general populace. Kim possesses a shed filled with miniature automobiles for her children, all of various brands and types. Kim also displayed a picture once of her three-year-old son Psalm sporting a $200K emerald necklace that aroused some controversy among netizens. In an interview with Variety, Kim explained how nobody wanted to work anymore and received a backlash for her comments about hard work. She proudly displayed a $2,000 Burberry overcoat on Instagram right after the interview when she was criticized for being "out of touch."
Not only has Kim offended many with her wealth, but so have the other KUWTK stars. Even more so now that she has been bestowed the moniker of a billionaire, Kylie Jenner has a history of flaunting her fortune. The extravagant costumes she has worn have cost more than $1 million in clothing. It costs thousands of dollars just to buy the pram she uses to carry her infant. Prior to boarding a luxury flight, Kylie flaunted her two more expensive Birkins, worth $100,000 and $210,000, respectively.
