The Kylie Cosmetics mogul, Kylie Jenner is in limelight again. After Forbes claimed to expose her “web of lies” and removed her from the billionaire list, she’s making headlines again.
Kylie posted a picture of her daughter Stormi Webster with a miniature designer purse. The purse costs 1180 and is a Louis Vuitton speedy bag.
What’s Special About That Bag?
The bag is described as a “perfect miniature version of Louis Vuitton’s iconic Speedy bags.” She captioned the picture as : “Coolest baby to ever do it.” The description of the bag reads as ” Extremely lightweight and large enough for a smartphone, cards and keys, it is a stylish way to carry essentials.”
The picture caused an immediate backlash.
Her social media was stormed with comments criticizing her redundancy. The 22 year old, Kylie Jenner faced criticism due to her lack of empathy during the present world scenario. The world is in a state of crisis and she would not stop bragging her extravaganza.
One person tweeted, “Kylie Jenners’ kid photographed with a bag that cost nearly two thousand pounds. It stings. It’s like having your poverty rubbed in your face.” “Who does that? doesn’t she know the world has families struggling now? Is she that detached from reality?” Another pointed out that “The cost of her handbag could feed the hungry children in LA. Just saying!”
Obsession With Brands
She received many such comments that criticised the ‘ Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star : ” I don’t know how people could just live that life in this day and age.” “Kylie Jenner buying her daughter a Louis Vuitton purse, only for Stormi to likely fill it with crumbs and boogers…..much to think about.” “The bag could have been a month of meals for someone out there.” “Enough @KylieJenner. So many people are suffering right now in this world no one wants to see your baby holding a designer bag….come down to earth please and help people who needs it instead of flaunting your incredibly non deserving bank roll.” This is not the only designer bag that Stormi has. Earlier Kim Kardashian got them the black version of the same bag from Japan. She also posted about it writing,” I got these for all the baby girls in the fam for Xmas from Japan.” Kylie too had posted that video of Stormi picking up the bag and slinging it over her shoulder.
The multicolored Louis Vuitton bags are only to be pre-owned and therefore are highly on demand. Not just Kylie this time but the famous, rapper Cardi B also faced some harsh criticism. She shared a video of her daughter, holding a mini pink Birkin bag that costs 8000.
After receiving backlash all over she posted a video to defend her choice. She said, “Kids go to restaurants, kids go to fancy places, kids go to red carpets. And if I’m fly, and daddy’s fly, then so is the kid.” She even concluded the video saying that, ” So I’m not mad that daddy bought baby a Birkin. She gonna match mommy.” Her video and the defence shows her inadequate understanding of the world outside.
We Live In An Extreme World , Know Why
A world that is facing a pandemic, people losing Jobs, millions dying of starvation, everyday the morbidity and morose environment prevails. During such hard times nobody cares if these celebrities kids carry a Birkin or a Louis Vuitton. In a world where people do not have money to buy the utmost necessities, she need to be atleast considerate and empathetic.
