Kim Kardashian

Last year, it was revealed that Kim Kardashian‘s Ebay charity auction for the Phillipines was really more like Kim making a gawddamn bank off stupid people and then throwing a couple coins to the less fortunate. This probably shouldn’t have been a surprise, since Kim has built a career of being a greedy ass-blister, but everyone still read her the riot-act over it. It also prompted people to take a look at Kim Kardashian’s “charity work”, and surprise! Turns out she’s not all that charitable.

According to the Paypal Charitable Giving Fund tax documents, Life Change Community Church received $19,975 after the auction. So how much did Kardashian keep? She’s said, “When the eBay numbers get broken down, the auction management agency that posts for me gets a percentage for all their hard work, then, eBay listing fees, end of auction fees, eBay Store fees, Paypal fees, etc, all add up to about half the sale. Then I give 10% to charity.” By her math, and the amount the charity received, the total amount of the sale could be roughly $399,500, making her final cut roughly $179,775, in comparison to the charity’s $19,975.

The best part about all of that? Life Change Community Church was started by Kris Jenner. So yeah, even when she’s giving to charity, she still finds a way to give back to herself. The part that kills me here is that if Kim actually wanted to do something for charity, she has the platform and the money to do so. Except she doesn’t actually want to do anything, but still wants to look like she does something. And that’s the kind of ass-blister thinking that makes it okay for you to scream “CHARITY AUCTION HURDY DURR!” only to pocket nine times the amount that actually goes to charity. You sh!t-ass.
