Forbes gets roasted for naming Kylie Jenner its youngest 'self-made billionaire'

Kylie Jenner officially hit the billions mark thanks to Kylie Cosmetics, making her the youngest self-made person to achieve hat milestone since Mark Zuckerberg.

According to Forbes, Jenner whose company Kylie Cosmetics is now valued over a $1 billion which pushed her into the elite list. In case you forgot, people were a little upset that the mag categorized her as "self-made". As per the global outlet, Kylie Cosmetics earned about $360 million in sales a year ago alone.

But Piers Morgan has put a dampener on Kylie Jenner's celebrations, slamming the star during a rant on Wednesday's Good Morning Britain.

Kylie's finances as well as her PR are being taken care of by her mother Kris Jenner. Reportedly, Mark Zuckerberg became a young billionaire at the age of 23 years before Kylie broke his record.

To clear the air, Forbes reported that, though Jenner benefitted from privilege, in their ranking system she qualifies as self-made. But social media and several readers of the list were anxious that only part of her journey was "self made" and that she had so much success because she had a wealthy family, according to USA Today.

Forbes made it official this morning, and Kylie said she "didn't expect" the company to have this much success.

Jenner has used social media platforms, such as Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to sell her products to her 175 million plus fans that follow her. Jenner says she has no trust fund and was "cut-off" from her parents at the age of 15 - though it's worth noting that she was still living in their mansion and surviving off the royalties of the family reality show at the time.

She credits her success to her enormous social media following which ensured her customer base before she made her first product.

"When you say self-made billionaire, I just thought she'd got it because her sister made a sex tape and that is why they all became hugely rich".

Many people on social media disagreed with the "self-made" billionaire news.
