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 Dictionary.com 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.”
Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided.

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.
Kylie Jenner was on the cover of Forbes Magazine today for having a net worth of 900 million dollars, which is heartbreaking. I don't want to live in a world where Kylie Jenner doesn't have a billion dollars. WE MUST RAISE 100 MILLION DOLLARS TO HELP HER GET TO A BILLION, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. LINK IN BIO TO DONATE.
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.
