​Kylie Jenner Branded 'Hypocrite' For Sharing Snap Of Mink Slippers After Mourning Australian Animals

​Kylie Jenner Branded 'Hypocrite' For Sharing Snap Of Mink Slippers After Mourning Australian Animals

The impact of the Australian bushfires on the country's population of animals has been nothing short of catastrophic, with more than one billion creatures now feared dead.

Their plight has reached all corners of the globe, with many showing their utmost support for their Aussie brethren by raising money, awareness or whatever they can.

That even includes the likes of Kylie Jenner, who posted on Instagram to say that the news 'breaks her heart'.

The only thing is, she then posted a photo of what appeared to be a pair of Louis Vuitton mink fur slippers - prompting many to call her out.

One person took to Twitter with screenshots from Jenner's Instagram Stories, along with a screengrab of the slippers from the Louis Vuitton website.

According to the designer label's online listing for the 'Homey Flat Mules', the shoes retail at £1,080 ($1,417) and are made from 'mink fur' with a 'mink fur insock'.

The description reads: "The Homey Flat Mules are crafted from luxurious mink fur printed with an oversized LV Initials signature.

"Their open-toe, slip-on style is made even softer by its insock in sheared mink fur. Supple and lightweight, they are ideal for travel and are accompanied by a matching velvet pouch."

Someone else also referred to Jenner's social posts as the 'biggest hypocrisy of 2020', sharing two of the same screenshots.

Another Twitter user asked: "And I wonder if she has donated anything?"

Sobering new figures from specialists in Australia suggest that the number of animals that have been killed by the bushfires has exceeded one billion.

Chris Dickman, an ecologist at the University of Sydney, said that his original figure of 480 million animals was conservative - and only included those in the state of New South Wales (NSW).

Speaking to Huffington Post, he said: "The original figure - the 480m - was based on mammals, birds and reptiles for which we do have densities, and that figure now is a little bit out of date. It's over 800m given the extent of the fires now - in New South Wales alone.

"If 800m sounds a lot, it's not all the animals in the firing line."
