Jenner, a make-up entrepreneur who is just 21-years-old, has now overtaken Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at 23.
But on Good Morning Britain today, Morgan took issue with the phrase ‘self-made’, arguing that the only reason Jenner or any of the Kardashian family are famous is because of Kim’s leaked sex tape.
“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.
“If Kim Kardashian hadn’t made that sex tape that then got leaked – she took ownership of it, made millions, and made a family franchise out of it – none of them would have ever been heard of.
“When you say ‘self-made’, her sister had sex with somebody, the tape ‘got leaked’, and the whole family cashed in.”
Morgan went on to criticise Jenner’s looks, claiming that all of the Kardashians bar Kendall would struggle to get into a “Croydon night club”.
“The thing about Kylie Jenner, she’s not even that good looking is she? She’s not!” he insisted. “I would have her at number four on the list of Kardashians, and the ones above her aren’t much better.
“I’m not being rude, the only hot Kardashian is Kendall [Jenner], the others… None of them are hot!
“If they weren’t Kardashians, famous for the sex tape, they would not get into the average, top Croydon night club – and the bar is set pretty low in Croydon.
“Kendall is the only one you can honestly say is model quality. Kylie is as dim as a lump of bread.”
He added: “We don’t want young girls thinking the way to get on is to be a Kardashian, because that’s madness. Make a sex tape, make a billion – what kind of message is that?”
It’s not self-made, it’s because her sister made a sex tape. https://t.co/1EIgPAvMRg

This comes after Morgan criticised Kylie Jenner’s achievement on social media, retweeting Forbes’ article and writing: “It’s not self-made, it’s because her sister made a sex tape.”
