Kylie Jenner Wants You To Help Pay Her Friend’s Medical Bills

America is the only developed country in the world that doesn’t have universal health care. The primary reason for this is that 40 years ago we elected Ronald Reagan president and he gave the money we would have used to pay for that sort of program to rich people in the form of tax breaks.

Now when people need basically any sort of medical procedure, the best way to pay for it is to panhandle on the internet and hope a celebrity retweets your gofundme or whatever. But when that celebrity is your friend, it’s a bit of a tricky situation.

Kylie Jenner’s former make-up artist was in a car accident, so Kylie retweeted his fundraiser and donated $5,000. Keep in mind she’s a billionaire. With a B.

If it seems kind of messed up for a billionaire to ask her fans to chip in for medical bills for a friend when she could easily pay them all herself with the same hit to her net worth that you or I would take buying a pack of gum, well, it is.

TMZ questioned why people thought Kylie should be the one to do this.

For starters, anyone who follows Kylie and saw this wasn’t forced/obligated to do anything. Second … the logic that rich people/celebs are heartless heathens for trying to raise money when they could just as easily fund the whole damn thing is absurd. Hardly any celeb does that — even the richest among them — and it’s unreasonable to expect them to anyway.
