Stop Shaming Celebrities For 'Not Doing Enough'

Stop Shaming Celebrities For 'Not Doing Enough'

Celebrities all over are helping in various ways for the relief, but others are not impressed.

Easy Branches

Hurricane Harvey and Irma both caused mass destruction in Texas and Florida.

Many are left without access to food and water, and others have lost everything due to these storms. Many do not have a home to go to and are left with only items they carried with them. They do not have anymore clothes or treasured items. During a tragic time like now, many are going to these areas to help those affected. Military, firefighters, police, medical aid, and people who just want to help are making the effort to help them. However, there are others who have been receiving backlash despite their best efforts.

Kim Kardashian and her family made a gracious donation to Red Cross and Salvation Army of half a million dollars for Hurricane Harvey relief. What seems like generosity and wonderful news to those affected was the opposite for others. Critics were saying how she is worth more than that, and instead of investing in new clothes for her wardrobe she should be spending more in the donation. I find this repulsive that someone can downplay someone else's efforts when others have done nothing to help. This is not the way that we should be showing respect. They also did not have to donate, but did with other celebrities, such as Sandra Bullock, Chris Brown, Kevin Hart, and the legendary, The Rock.

As a human, the best you can do is help and support those that have lost everything. There is no room to sit around and criticize how others should do more than they already have. Others, like Beyonce, have gone down to Texas to help with passing out food. There was also a telethon, "Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief," that was aired. It had stars like Jamie Foxx, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Beyonce, Julia Roberts, and Adam Sandler to name a few.

These are the benefits that these celebrities are offering to those that are in dire need at this time. They were not required, pushed, or mandated to do this. They did this out of the kindness of their hearts, and to show what it is to be kind to one another. There should be no negative remarks and no shaming, because they are just being the best humans they can be.
