Pop star Justin Bieber has come under fire from social media users claiming the artist has not donated to any Australian bushfire causes.
The 25-year-old has been online promoting his new single, Yummy, which has cracked the top 10 on Australian streaming charts.
But the song’s success has prompted a negative response from some Twitter users who have not seen any public declarations by Bieber of any financial contributions to bushfire relief.
“You should match the number of Australian streams and donate the money to those affected by the Australian Bushfires,” one person wrote.
“Enough about #yummy, can we see you make a real difference and donate to the Australian bushfires happening RIGHT NOW?” another questioned the singer.
“You probably own 20 cars now instead of paying for an extra y not think of the people who have lost their homes in the Australian bushfires you need 1 car don’t be greedy sell them and donate,” one more said.
The Love Yourself singer and his wife, model Hailey Bieber, regularly visit Australia.
In 2013, Bieber undertook a national tour of Australia.
He came back to perform across the nation in March 2017 and returned later that year to attend a Hillsong conference.
7NEWS.com.au has reached out to Bieber’s management for comment.
The singer has not yet shared any awareness about the effects of the bushfires on his social media platforms, and it is not confirmed whether he has donated privately to any bushfire causes.
Bieber is not the first celebrity to attract this type of reaction from social media users during the bushfire crisis.
On January 6, reality TV star Kim Kardashian West was criticised online for allegedly not making a donation towards the blazes.
Kardashian West was quick to respond, writing: “Nothing gets me more heated than to see people think they know what we donated to and to think we have to publicise everything.”
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star did not disclose the amount she and her famous sisters have donated.
Several celebrities including Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Hemsworth, Serena Williams and Kylie Minogue have publicly donated funds in the name of bushfire relief.
Australian comedian Celeste Barber’s Facebook fundraiser has surpassed $50 million.
