Dictionary.com Just Threw Hella Shade At Kylie Jenner For Being Named ‘Youngest Self-Made Billionaire’

2 min


Kylie Jenner officially became the youngest “self-made” billionaire in history at the age of 21, beating previous record-holder Mark Zuckerberg by two years and reigniting the debate over how “self-made” Jenner really is.

Forbesrevealed last year that Jenner was on track to become the youngest-ever self-made billionaire, but her title was made official yesterday after her income revenue reached new heights as a result of an exclusive distribution deal with the beauty retailer Ulta, which finally brought Kylie Cosmetics products to (over 1000) retail stores across the country.

Jenner credits her achievement to “the power of social media,” admitting how “I had such a strong reach before I was able to start anything.”

Jenner told Forbes that she did not start out hoping to become a billionaire: “I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future. But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”

And while some reactions on social media were positive—praising and congratulation Jenner on her historic accomplishment—others provedto be more cynical, attributing a large portion of her “self-made” success to her family’s fame and wealth.

Dictionary.com belonged to the latter group, tweeting: “Haven’t we gone over this? Self-made: Having succeeded in life unaided,” before providing a link to the definition of ‘self-made.’

The savagery.

People were shooketh, and called for Dictionary.com’s social media team to get raises.
