Kim Kardashian made a big to-do about the fact that she auctioned off a bunch of high-end clothes and accessories on eBay for victims of the typhoon in the Philippines.

She promised to donate a portion of the sales to the cause, but Radar Online reports the key word is “portion.”

“She’s keeping 90 percent of the profits,” the website says, “a fact hidden in the fine print.”

Even her fans have reacted. Her blog was inundated with criticism, ranging from comments like “I think what you are doing is great, but honestly only 10 percent?” to “How can you even sleep at night?”
