in Just Mocked Kylie Jenner For Being Named ‘Youngest Self-Made Billionaire’

Well, folks, hell has officially frozen over. This week, Forbes revealed that Kylie Jenner officially became the youngest “self-made” billionaire in history at the age of 21-years-old. According to the outlet, Jenner beat previous record-holder Mark Zuckerberg by two years. While Jenner clearly does well for herself, many online had an issue with the idea that she was “self-made.” Obviously, without her famous family name, Jenner would not be as big of a celebrity as she is today.

Jenner, however, does not credit her big achievement to her family (specifically, her big sister Kim Kardashian), but instead to  “the power of social media.” She claims that her social media reach contributed to her ability to grow her company.

Jenner told Forbes that she did not start out hoping to become a billionaire:

“I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future. But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”

While Jenner and her entire family celebrated her accomplishment, there were some online who were opposed to the new title. Specifically, belonged to the latter group, tweeting:

“Haven’t we gone over this? Self-made: Having succeeded in life unaided,” before providing a link to the definition of ‘self-made.’

People were laughing endlessly at whoever runs their social media account.

You heard the people. Give’s social team a raise.
