Backlash over Forbes dubbing Kylie Jenner 'self-made'

2 Indian Origin Women On Forbes Richest Self Made Women List

Whatever Jenner's worth may be, many on social media took exception to her being called "self-made" since she is a member of the wealthy and famous Kardashian/Jenner clan.

Forbes released an Instagram photo for the cover of the August 31 issue of the magazine yesterday, July 11.

Jenner now ranks at number 27 on Forbes' list of "America's Richest Self-Made Women".

After all, she grew up in one of America's richest and most-followed celebrity families. Her ranking at such a young age is undeniably impressive. "Her story is not inspiring or motivating for anyone".

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.

In another tweet, she stated that if there should be someone celebrated for being "self-made", it should be Jenner's mother, Kris.

"At 21, she's set to be the youngest-ever self-made billionaire", the cover reads. Self-made. Even Dictionary.com roasted the magazine for the title, Tweeting yesterday "Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided". The 20-year-old reached the milestone by starting her Kylie Cosmetics line that boomed into mega success and will now most likely be passed down to her daughter, Stormi. Used in a sentence: "Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman".

And the internet's favorite authority on words and their meanings hinted that maybe the term doesn't totally apply in Jenner's case.

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