While another added: ‘That awful person Kylie Jenner posted about koalas dying in Australia then posted herself wearing slippers made from ANIMAL fur. Made from real mink fur. An animal had to die for her slippers, just f**k off Kylie.’

Another fan wrote: ‘Kylie Jenner posting a story about the koalas in Australia and then posting a pic of her mink fur slippers in the story immediately after is a big fat OOP.’      

Others flocked to social media to ask if Kylie – who is a billionaire make-up brand owner – was donating to the disaster relief after sharing the post.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Kylie Jenner for comment. 

Kylie has yet to comment on the social media backlash but elder sister Kim Kardashian, 39, hit back at a follower on Monday for claiming the family had not donated to the disaster relief. 

They wrote: ‘nothing gets me more heated than to see the Kardashians/Jenners talk about climate change/wildfires & not donate even a penny. @KimKardashian @khloekardashian @KylieJenner @KendallJenner m@kourtneykardash 

Kim responded: ‘nothing gets me more heated than to see people think they know what we donated to and to think we have to publicize everything.’    

In November Kim was labelled ‘tone deaf’ for teasing some ‘exciting news’ to Australian fans on Twitter amid the raging bushfires. 

‘Hi Australia! I have some exciting news coming soon just in time for the holidays. Can you guess what is is? Stay tuned for the big announcement…’ Kim Tweeted. 

She added in a video: ‘I’m sending you guys something very special and it’s coming very soon… Be sure to stay tuned and follow very soon.’

Many of Kim’s Australian fans were infuriated by the post, which appeared to be promoting the launch of her new fragrance. 

At the time of Kim’s Tweet, there were more than 50 blazes in each of New South Wales and Queensland and a state of emergency had been declared.   

She later issued a sincere message to those affected by bushfires during an interview with Australian breakfast show Sunrise.

After speaking at length about her new fragrance on the Channel Seven program, Kim wrapped up her interview by adding: ‘I just hope everyone is safe and OK after all of the fires in Australia. We’re praying for you over here.’     

So far, the Australian bushfires have killed 26 people, destroyed more than 2,000 homes and tore through more than four million hectares of land.

An estimated half a billion animals were wiped out in the blazes, which have been burning through much of the east coast of Australia since October.   

Wildfires are common during the southern hemisphere summer, and Australians generally take a pragmatic view of them.

But this year’s fires arrived unusually early, fed by drought and the country’s hottest and driest year on record.

Experts recently described how two colossal infernos raging in Victoria and New South Wales could meet to form a ‘mega blaze.’

On Kangaroo Island, a refuge off the coast of South Australia for some of the country’s most endangered creatures, teams had arrived to help euthanize livestock and wild animals injured in the blazes.
