Twitterverse just trolled this magazine’s reference to Kylie Jenner

Forbes recently launched their latest issue featuring Kylie Jenner on cover. She was named one of the 60 richest women in the US, and the youngest billionaire at that!

Using her massive social media following as leverage, Jenner was able to propel her own business, Kylie Cosmetics, turning it eventually into a $900M-empire. But an online dictionary decided to point out on Twitter the magazine’s usage of the term ‘self-made’ to describe Jenner’s success:

Can we just say that’s just straight up S A V A G E.

But people found the tweet pretty amusing:

Apparently, several Twitter users have been pointing out the same thing because for them, Jenner isn’t exactly a “self-made woman”, as the publication has claimed. Having been born in a rich and famous family, people argued that she has the available resources she needed to build her own business from the ground up. So, obviously people are not buying it.

There were others who defended Jenner that it sparked a brief online debate:

Kylie Jenner, self-made, Twitter, Forbes

Even her sister, Kim Kardashian-West, defended Kylie against netizens, saying that they didn’t “depend on their parents for anything besides advice” and that “no one works harder than my sisters and mum”.
