Forbes was sharply criticized for calling Kylie Jenner a "self-made billionaire" in July 19459019, when she reached $ 1 billion. Now she did it, so they did it again.
As part of the annual ranking of the richest people in the world, the magazine named 21-year-old Jenner, who founded the cosmetics company Kylie Cosmetics in 2015, the world's newest self-image. Billionaire made. (She took the throne from Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at the age of 23.)
Of course, for many people – including the people at Dictionary.com – this distinction seems doubtful because the term "home-made" does not work. With Jenner's status as a member of a famous wealthy and visible family.
So we got another round of Kylie comment.
No Homebound Billionaire

I'm sure Kylie Jenner works hard, but she's not "homemade" and we're not supposed to stop all compare our successes in our fields with the successes of people who come from wealthy, connected families, since the field is at 90 degrees

Ah Kylie Jenner, these days got up at 5 in the morning to put the newspaper in the snow and save every nickel!

This does not mean that Jenner does not do it. You do not work hard or have any business acumen. Not every rich child could have done what she did. However, it should be noted that Jenner had an enormous leg in building, promoting and scaling her business. We should be able to admit that.
Besides, the jokes are good.
