Throughout 2020 many people have used the term “eat the rich,” meaning to hold those in power accountable when it comes to the less fortunate.


Recently, Jenner faced backlash after posting her former makeup artist GoFundMe for his medical bills after a dangerous accident.


“Samuel Rauda was in an accident and “underwent major surgery on Sunday, 3/14/21,” according to CNN.


Social media went in an uproar and opened a larger conversation about how people in powerful positions should be open and willing to provide and help out those in need simply because they have the resources.


With Jenner being named one of “60 Richest Self-Made Women” in Forbes, the general public looked down at her, knowing that she can provide resources, but asked her 222 million followers to help out as well.


Throughout the hectic time of the COVID-19 pandemic and racial injustice, people are starting to realize how much those in power could help but chose not to, especially within low-income communities, which is directed towards people of color.


Jenner has recently broken her silence about the situation in a statement.

“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,” she said, according to CNN.


This situation amplified whether people who have financial resources do not use their money to their advantage when helping those in need or working towards where they are and doing what they want with their money.
