Kim Kardashian’s been taking plenty of heat for her decision to keep all but 10 percent of the proceeds from a recent eBay charity auction. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star finally addressed the haters today on her Celebuzz blog — suffice to say, she’s not happy about being villainized yet again!
Should Kim Kardashian have offered to donate more than 10 percent of the profits from her latest eBay auction? Most fans agree that the charity auction was incredibly misleading — and hope that the reality star will decide to contribute a greater share of the proceeds to victims of November’s deadly Typhoon Haiyan. They’re about to be might disappointed, for based on a new blog post, there’s no plans for an increased Kim Kardashian charity donation.
The celeb begins her blog response by asserting that, although she’s accustomed to criticism, she’s still mighty offended whenever she is ”attacked for giving and trying to help people.” Kim adds that most of her critics fail to recognize that the Typhoon Haiyan auction was in no way an isolated event. “I do eBay auctions monthly and change the charity or church from time to time. I give 10% of all my earnings to charities, not just these eBay auctions.”
Additionally, Kim feels that the haters need to take eBay listing fees and other assorted expenses into account, explaining that these ”all add up to about half of the sale.” Of course, that means Kim still keeps 40 percent of the proceeds, but she maintains that this is fully within her rights as an eBay merchant.
