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

2 Indian Origin Women On Forbes Richest Self Made Women List

Her wealth is largely derived from the performance of her make-up company Kylie Cosmetics, which has now sold more than 630 million dollars (£475 million) worth of products.

Whether you're a Kylie Jenner fan or not, you can't deny that her recent Forbes cover as a self-made billionaire is a pretty damn good accomplishment.

"What her half-sister Kim Kardashian West did for booty, Jenner has done for full lips", Natalie Robehmed wrote for Forbes.

"Calling Kylie Jenner a "self-made billionaire' is like claiming you made soup from scratch because you opened a can and reheated it", while another posted on Twitter: "For f*** sake, if you start the 40-yard dash on the 39-yard line, you are NOT self-made".

Officer resigns amid uproar over lack of response to woman's harassment
Irizzary was wearing a shirt made to look like the Puerto Rico flag, with the words "Puerto Rico" written on the top. The officer can then be seen talking to the man who gesticulates back and tells him to "shut the f*** up".

It's a business model that couldn't have existed two decades ago. I do feel like people don't take me seriously as a businesswoman because of my age and my reputation. Netizens are pointing out the fact that Jenner shouldn't be called "self-made" as she was born into an already rich family. His few choice words congratulating the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner crew sparked RHOA star, Nene Leakes to comment her own opinion. Yes, she is nearly a billionaire. "Her story is not inspiring or motivating for anyone". Used in a sentence: "Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman".

Writer Roxane Gay defended that tweet after People magazine put out a headline saying Dictionary.com was shading Jenner.

The magazine estimated that Jenner's cosmetics company, reality TV gig and endorsements have helped the 20-year-old (she turns 21 in August) rake in a $900 million fortune.
