Kylie caught some slack for donating $5,000 to the campaign, which appeared to be only a percentage of what the family was trying to raise for his medical costs. 

Followers criticized the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner brood for not doing enough to help with her plethora of wealth, but Kylie attempted to rectify the situation. 

‘Sam isn’t my makeup artist and unfortunately we don’t have a personal relationship anymore but i have worked with him a few years ago and think he’s the sweetest. I saw my current makeup artist and friend Ariel post about Sam’s accident and his family’s gofundme and i called Ariel immediately to see what happened to Sam.

She added: ‘After learning in more detail about the accident it compelled me to visit his gofundme which was was set at 10k. They had already raised 6k so i put it in 5k to reach their original goal and thought i’d post on my stories to gain more awareness if anyone else felt compelled to share or donate.

‘I don’t know how all of this got so twisted but his family has reached out through Ariel and are very appreciative of all the donations, prayers, and love towards Sam.’ 

In another post, Kylie wrote: ‘Anyone that knows me knows that I do things from the heart and I try to be helpful whenever I can be. Let’s all stay positive and keep Sam, his family, and anyone you know who is going through a difficult time in our prayers. I hope you have a beautiful day and let’s encourage each other to help.’ 

Helping hands: To date, Sam's GoFundMe page, which was established by Johanna Portillo, has changed its goal and is just shy of raising $100,000

‘He has a long road to recovery ahead of him. I know he is loved by many,’ the site said. ‘Your donations will help cover the cost of his medical expenses and whats to come. Please know that a donation of any amount is greatly appreciated.’
