Huda Kattan once turned down an $180,000 sponsored post, here's why...

Unless you've been living in the middle of the jungle or under a rock - or both - then you will be well aware that last week saw the release of the 2019 Instagram Rich List. Unsurprisngly Kylie Jenner came out on top for the second year in a row, but our girl Huda Kattan wasn't far off. 

With a whopping 38.3 million followers, Huda could easily charge up to Dhs335,344 for a sponsored post according to scheduling tool, HopperHQ. But the business woman and beauty mogul apparently chooses not to, as a quick flick through the Huda Beauty Instagram and Kattan's private account will confirm. According to Huda, she once turned down a $185,000 post as she "just couldn't do it".

As she explains, "I had been looking at a car I was ready to buy, but I ended up turning it down," she said. "It was painful for me and my husband to reject it, because it was a lot of money. I know you have to identify it as an ad, but I just didn’t feel comfortable with it. I thought about Oprah. I was like, would Oprah do that? No, she wouldn’t."

That's a ming boggling pay check to decline but then again, Huda Kattan is worth a well earned Dhs165,276,000 and with a brand built on integrity it would be a mistake to jeopardise the love and trust of her many millions of fans.
