Reality TV star and make-up mogul Kylie Jenner came under fire after she launched a $7 hand sanitiser under her skincare line Kylie Skin.

The 60ml bottle comes in Kylie Skin’s signature baby pink packaging and is available for sale in the US, Teen Vogue reported. But the price of the product is what divided the internet, with some Twitter users accusing Jenner of cashing in on the pandemic and others coming to her defense.
One user commented that she was profiting off the pandemic through her cosmetic line.

Another user said that Jenner’s sanitiser gave her a “valid” reason to not like her.

One remarked that Jenner should have made her sanitiser free for all if she really wanted to help people amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, some also came to Jenner’s defense and showed their support for her. A user said that people should not criticise Jenner as before making her own sanitiser, she had donated “tons of them” when the pandemic started.
Before she started selling the hand sanitizer she made it at the beginning of the pandemic and donated tons of it. Now people are giving her a hard time? People should get their facts straight first

A girl also commented the same and said her hospital received sanitisers from Jenner at the time they were being “hoarded”.
