They made an unlikely but iconic duo for their Uber Eats ad, and now Magda Szubanski has jumped to Kim Kardashian's defence after she was accused of not donating to the Australian bushfire crisis.
The Kath and Kim star, 58, took to Twitter to defend the 39-year-old reality star highlighting that Kim was "concerned, informed and compassionate."

"FYI when I did the Uber eats ad w Kim I spoke to her on the phone (weeks before this current disaster ) & the VERY FIRST THING she asked me was how we were going with the bushfires," Magda wrote on social media.
"She was concerned, informed & compassionate. Many ppl donate their money and time quietly."
Magda's response follows a Twitter user posting, "Nothing gets me more heated than to see the Kardashians/Jenners talk about climate change/wildfires & not donate even a penny," and tagging not only Kim but her sisters Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner.
Kim swiftly replied on social media with, "nothing gets me more heated than to see people think they know what we donated to and to think we have to publicize everything."

Kim's sister Khloe also gave her two cents on Twitter via a statement that Kim retweeted.
"Good deeds should be done with intention and not for attention," she wrote.
"We are all blessed to be able to bless others even if it is in the slightest way. But we do not need to be boastful about that. Be boastful in regards to teaching others how they may be able to help as well."

Magda has teamed up with Will Connolly, more commonly known as 'Egg Boy' and set up a GoFundMe page to assist with the mental health impacts from the bushfires.
Their original goal of $30,000 has been beaten and in three days it has more than doubled to reach over $73,000 and are in awe at people's generosity.
Magda also highlighted what they plan to do with the funds raised explaining, "I've spoken to philanthropist friends of mine who knows this stuff. We'll put it in a trust, we'll keep it there and then we'll see what needs a rise so that we make sure that it goes to the right place."
