Twitter fuming as Kylie Jenner becomes youngest self-made billionaire: 'It's an insult!'

People are refusing to accept Kylie Jenner is a self-made billionaire after she officially became the youngest person ever to take the title.

The 21-year-old beat Facebook tycoon Mark Zuckerberg, who was 23, to achieve the 10 figure feat.

Jenner told Forbes the “recognition” makes her “feel good” and described the achievement as a “nice pat on the back”.

But some refused to celebrate, with many taking aim at the term “self-made,” claiming her famous family makes her exempt.

One tweeted: “Please stop calling Kylie Jenner a self-made billionaire.”

Another wrote: “Stop referring to Kylie Jenner as a ‘self-made billionaire’ pls. It's an insult to anyone who had to work their way up without privilege.”

A third wrote: “Literally what the f*** does self made mean? Kylie Jenner was Born into money & opportunities. She never had to pay a dime toward her education or take a terrible unpaid internship to get to where she is. That’s not exactly self made.”

Others compared their lives to Jenner’s with one joking they could barely afford a slice of bread: “Today, at 21 years old, Kylie Jenner became the youngest self-made billionaire of all time. Today, at 21 years old, I picked mould off a piece of bread, ate it, then called my mum to ask if it would poison me.”

Another tweeted: “Congratulations @KylieJenner on being the world’s youngest billionaire. Now can I borrow $1000? Some of us barely living above the poverty line out here (sic).”

Jenner was previously savaged by which tweeted the definition of the word “self-made” after she was tipped to hit the $1 billion mark last year.

Fans later set up a GoFundMe page to help push her from $900 million to the billion mark, and joked they were prepared to take out a “second mortgage” to help the star reach the goal faster.

Jenner’s new worth is thanks to her beauty empire Kylie Cosmetics which is worth an estimated $800 million.
