Forbes Faces Backlash After Calling Kylie Jenner "Self-Made"

The combined net worth of the 60 women on the list is a record USD 71 billion 15 per cent more than in 2017

"Calling Kylie Jenner self-made without acknowledging anywhere the incredible headstart she had is what allows people to turn around and look at poor people and ask them why they haven't become billionaires yet", one person tweeted.

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

On Wednesday, Forbes published images of a new cover showing Kylie Jenner with a subhead predicting the 20-year-old is "set to be the youngest-ever self-made billionaire".

Discussion around whether Jenner, whose upbringing in ritzy Calabasas was documented on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians", is truly "self-made" quickly exploded.

Dictionary.com also pointed out that the searches for "self-made" were up by 18,628 per cent on their website.

Even the folks at Dictionary.com took a moment to tweet the definition of "self-made", which "means having succeeded in life unaided". "Social media is an unbelievable platform", she says in the Forbes cover story.

The magazine valued her company at almost $800 million and with her reality shows and product endorsements pegged her net worth conservatively at $900 million. His few choice words congratulating the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner crew sparked RHOA star, Nene Leakes to comment her own opinion.

"We consider any person who built her own fortune, and didn't inherit the money, to be self-made", Forbes' methodology reads in the article. "So top executives at tech firms who are compensated for helping significantly grow companies make the ranks but not second-generation-women running family businesses".
