Kardashian sister Kylie Jenner on way to being youngest billionaire

Kardashian sister Kylie Jenner on way to being youngest billionaire

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.

Jenner credits her more than 100 million social media followers as the key to her success.

"At 21, she's set to be the youngest-ever self-made billionaire", the cover states. "It is not shade to point out that Kylie Jenner isn't self-made", Gay tweeted.

"So, in what way is she self made?" the 39-year-old questioned.




It's a business model that couldn't have existed two decades ago. I learned a lot though and just have experienced things that people my age do not even know how to handle. I won't lie it got me thinking and I talked about it on Toke Moments.

"Calling Kylie Jenner self-made without acknowledging anywhere the incredible headstart she had is what allows people to turn around and look at poor people and ask them why they haven't become billionaires yet", one person tweeted. "Her story is not inspiring or motivating for anyone".

"Kylie Jenner was on the cover of Forbes Magazine today for having a net worth of 900 million dollars, which is heartbreaking", he wrote. "So top executives at tech firms who are compensated for helping significantly grow companies make the ranks but not second-generation-women running family businesses".

"That's not why I'm knocking her down", he said.
