Kylie Jenner’s Forbes Cover Calling Her A ‘Self-Made’ Billionaire Receives Backlash

Kylie Jenner is featured on the August cover of Forbes magazine. It is a feature on “America’s Women Billionaires.” Kylie, at almost 21, has an estimated $900 million to her name, thanks largely to the success of her make-up line and lip-kit specifically.


It isn’t the facts in the title that have people angry. Yes, she made that cash. Yes, she is almost a billionaire. The problem lies where the Magazine lists her as a ‘Self-Made billionaire’… Self-made. Even roasted the magazine for the title, Tweeting yesterday “Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided. Used in a sentence: Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman.”




Instagram star The Fat Jewish posted the photo, adding that he is so upset that we live in a world where Kylie is not YET a billionaire, so he started an ironic Go Fund Me page to raise the extra $100 Million. It has $412 to date.


Once she crosses the $1 billion mark, she will unseat Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest-ever self-made billionaire.  Kylie is one of half a dozen women on the list because of make-up.




Other celebrity women on the list include: Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Oprah and Shonda Rhimes.
