Poor Kim can’t do right for doing wrong.
Kim Kardashian West has pledged to donate an impressive 1000 pairs of shoes to charity, but predictably some people on Twitter aren’t exactly impressed.
While up breastfeeding newborn Saint and watching TV, Kim heard of 17-year-old Hurricane survivor Amelia Flores and her quest to raise a total of 2000 pairs of shoes for the Soles4Souls project.
In response, Kim generously promised to donate 1000 pairs to the teen enabling her to reach her target. On Thursday the reality star tweeted; “I heard the cutest story of a girl who is trying to find 1000 pairs of shoes to donate to this charity Soles For Souls.”
Kim continued; “Kanye and I would love to donate those 1000 shoes to Soles For Souls”.
However it seems even giving away a haul of shoes to charity can’t save Kimye from the wrath of Twitter. Followers lined up to express how unimpressed they were. One Twitter user even challenged the star to ‘donate 2000.’
Some followers branded her an attention seeker and a bragger, with one user tweeting; “Do you have to tweet every remotely nice thing you do just to get attention?” Wow. Someone clearly wasn’t won over by the enormous donation. What’s a girl gotta do to get a bit of love?
However, most followers sent messages of support to the 35-year old and said how impressed they were by her charitable gesture.
The mother-of-two didn’t say if she would be donating some of her own personal shoes or not, but either way we think it’s great that she’s helping such a worthwhile cause. Go, Kim!
