Boy, times have changed a lot and what was considered to be normal a decade or two ago is now more or less obsolete! Technology caused our lives to dramatically change in terms of personal or business relationships. One of the brightest examples we could think of are the Kardashian-Jenners! Their online presence earned them huge amounts of money and fame! While Kim K used to grab most of the attention, now it seems that Kylie is in the spotlight! Her company called Kylie Cosmetics is the thing that contributed the most to her fortune. The business is growing rapidly and that is a good thing for Kylie, of course! She was probably glad to be proclaimed the youngest self-made billionaire, but many people had something to say about it. They had no doubt that her net worth was this big, but they had their doubts about the ‘self-made’ part. To be honest, we have such doubts, too, but let’s look what people commented on this news.
1. Here is the tweet that started the whole thing
News sources love headlines like there because they are aware of the discussion they would spark. Forbes did exactly that and they what was going to happen after that. In this case, many people tweeted what they had to say about it and you will probably relate to some of them!
2. This person had something particular in mind
It is no secret that most of the famous faces that happen to be role models when it comes to beauty standards, fashion and style, are actually not genuinely pretty. All kinds of corrections, accessories and makeup are needed in order for a celeb to look the way their fans are used to seeing them. While much of what Kylie has now is because of her family name and her face, the ‘self-made’ term is either inaccurate or means a completely different thing!
3. This person is realistic about it
This is a post we could agree with, because it actually points out things just as they are! While there is little doubt about her estimated net worth, most people would agree that ‘self-made’ means another thing. Kylie did not start from the bottom and she was not some unknown person who happened to gain fame because of what she did for a living.
4. We loved this post
Now this is what we call fine sarcasm! The people behind Dictionary.com’s Twitter account obviously have their own opinion about the newly-acclaimed status of Kylie Jenner, and it seems that it is close to ours! They did the extra effort to post what the term ‘self-made’ actually meant, and it was hilarious to see this post!
You just have to love these people and their fine sense of humor!
5. Here is the original post including her picture
There is nothing wrong with being a billionaire. In fact, we are glad that a 21-year-old person could be in a position to have so much influence over a great number of people. The trouble is that none of that was achieved by her alone, and this is what made people put all of their comments on this topic.
6. Here is one way to describe it
Of course, this is a bit overexaggerated, but there is still some truth to it. Nobody can grow a company worth $900 million overnight and this is what happened with Kylie Cosmetics more or less. It takes a lot of business knowledge and experience, too.
7. Here is another short list of details about her fortune
As we already mentioned, Kylie Jenner had a head start in life, and she has her family to thank for most of the things sheh has now. This is the main reason why the term ‘self-made’ millionaire is fairly inaccurate to use in her case! These are the facts and nobody could argue with that!
8. We have all heard many stories about real self-made billionaires before
This is definitely not the typical story of a person who was literally nobody but managed to make a name and become widely popular all over the world. It is more of a privilege thing, really, and we cannot deny this. She should not deny it, either, which is why she hardly is ‘self-made’.
9. Here is one accurate way to put things
This sounds like a much better way to describe Kylie’s success. There is nothing wrong with having a certain prililege that few other people had when they were your age. It simply needs to be mentioned, because becoming a billionaire is not as easy as Forbes portray it to be.
10. This is what we mentioned earlier
It is one thing to start from the bottom and struggle all the way to the top, and a completely different thing to have a massie head start!
11. Kylie probably had no problem with finding the funds to start a business
While many people are forced to spend years trying to save money to start a project of their own, Kylie already had such capital!
12. This is sarcasm in our favorite form
Sarcasm is not for everyone to use, but this person is definitely a master of this craft! It is easy to see that this user shared most people’s opinion about just how easy her career start was!
13. This another person who preferred the sarcastic approach
This is another post that we enjoyed seeing! It also puts things in a similar fashion to the other posts on this list, because this is just how things are!
14. It is all about the family name
It seems that whatever Kylie chose to do, she would have been successful because of her big family! The right attitude and the cute face definitely helped her, though!
15. This person tried to defend Kylie
Well, there was nothing more that could be said on the topic, but this user tried to defend Kylie, because she was probably a fan.
16. Maybe you agreed with all of that but there is no reason to be jealous about it
There is nothing wrong with Kylie being a billionaire at 21, but they shouldn’t have used the ‘self-made’ term.
