Kylie Jenner is facing backlash online, once again. This time, it is for the latest product of Kylie Skin—well, a hand sanitizer. It didn’t settle well with the people online. After launching her $7 Kylie Skin hand sanitizer, the beauty mogul is facing accusations of ‘profiting off the pandemic.’ While others were of the opinion that the product should have been free, as people continue to struggle amid the global health crisis. Jenner’s products typically fly off the shelves, but the germ-killing spritz has yet to sell out. Social media is filled with many posts criticising the 23-year-old for cashing in on the COVID-19 crisis.
The Kardashian-Jenner clan never fail to create a buzz on the internet. The Kim Kardashian and Kanye West divorce rumour have already sparked debates and different opinions on Twitter. No matter how much the family try or don’t they frequently find themselves amid controversies. Kim’s birthday bash faced a huge troll too, and eventually, the family had to cancel their traditional lavish holiday parties.
Meanwhile, Kylie has been facing criticism online, after she went for a snow-filled getaway with sister Kendall. Her Aspen’s holiday home blew everyone’s mind. For the product launch, Kylie wrote, “My @kylieskin hand sanitizer is here!! 80% alcohol, fast drying, and formulated with glycerin to prevent dryness!”
Here's the Tweet:

Many took to Twitter to blame Kylie for profiting off a pandemic. However, some also jumped to Jenner’s defense, referencing the many private companies who released their own high-end sanitizers in the wake of a pandemic.
Like you, a freaking BILLIONAIRE needs any more money? Talk about tone deaf. This a ✨perfect✨ example of profiting off of the pandemic. Ily and all kylie but this a big no.

Cashing in on Global Pandemic
lemme rephrase: she is using her well known face & name (that she got from selling MAKEUP) to market and capitalize off of a current NECESSITY. she is cashing in on a global pandemic that has killed millions of people, to me that makes her a ~bad person~ :)

As we said, it is not the first time the Kardashian-Jenner crew has become involved in a COVID-related controversy. Kim was similarly accused of using the pandemic for profit, when she added face masks to her Skims line in March last year. Just like sister Kim, Kylie also donated 1 million USD to support coronavirus relief efforts. No matter what, the famous family repeatedly make headlines for their activities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
