Waleed Aly isn't impressed with Kylie Jenner's Forbes cover

One day after Forbes declared that cover star Kylie Jenner is set to become one of the world's youngest self-made billionaires, fans of the reality star and makeup mogul did their part to give her the extra bump she needs to reach the milestone.

The magazine cover was accompanied by an article explaining how the socialite made $900 million (around P4.8 billion) in less than three years: by taking full advantage of her stardom and making good use of social media as a platform. She is on course to supplant Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest self-made... While it is true her cosmetics company, Kylie Cosmetics, is worth multimillions, netizens do not agree that the term "self-made" applies to Jenner. And, Dictionary.com chose to drop the definition of "self-made" at an expertly shady moment.

Her wealth is largely derived from the performance of her make-up company Kylie Cosmetics, which has now sold more than 630 million dollars (£475 million) worth of products.

Even the folks at Dictionary.com took a moment to tweet the definition of "self-made", which "means having succeeded in life unaided". Forbes also says Jenner is the 27th-richest self-made woman in the United States, beating out the rest of her family.

According to a conservative estimate made by the magazine her cosmetics line [Kylie cosmetics] is worth around $800 million.

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?"
