Dictionary.com Fact-Checks Forbes’ Claim That Kylie Jenner Is ‘Self-Made’

2 Indian Origin Women On Forbes Richest Self Made Women List

But many people on Twitter took issue with the magazine's claim that she was "self-made".

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

A former producer of Real Housewives of Atlanta shared Kylie's cover on Instagram with the caption, "Being on a reality show isn't so bad, eh?"

"Despite the fact that Kylie is a master of branding and has made an nearly billion-dollar business off her lips and cosmetics, once Stormi was born, Kylie realized she was a mother first, and that is a big reason she has been sporting the more natural look", the source adds. Her ranking at such a young age is undeniably impressive.

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. "Her story is not inspiring or motivating for anyone".

Writer Roxane Gay defended that tweet after People magazine put out a headline saying Dictionary.com was shading Jenner. Used in a sentence: "Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman". "Words have meanings and it behooves a dictionary to remind us of that".

Other netizens seem to think that Jenner deserved being labeled as a "self-made billionaire" because while she was born into a multi-millionaire family, she did work and is continuously working hard. And sure, there's no disputing that the 20-year-old, who launched Kylie Cosmetics in 2016, is a highly successful businesswoman. The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan was known for her "big lips" which she used as the basis of the "lip kits" that started her business venture.
