Forbes Magazine’s fourth annual issue which honours “America’s Richest Self-Made Women” featured model-entrepreneur Kylie Jenner on its cover. Describing Jenner, the magazine wrote, “At 21, she is set to be the youngest ever self-made billionaire,” highlighting how she built a $900 million fortune in less than three years. The list features 60 richest self-made women in the US. Jenner will become the youngest ever self-made billionaire and usurp the title from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who made his first billionaire at 23.

As many were ‘miffed’ to see another member from the Kardashian-Jenner family gracing the cover, it was the “self-made” adjective that became the talking point on social media. “Her success is commendable but it comes by virtue of her privilege,” tweeted writer Roxane Gay.

Many on Twitter highlighted the same and couldn’t stop cracking jokes and sharing sarcastic memes about it.

And joining the bandwagon was Dictionary.com took a jibe at the magazine with their characteristic elan — much like on numerous occasions when they corrected US President Donald Trump.

Sharing the definition of ‘self-made’, they stressed it means “having succeeded in life unaided” — reminding people Jenner was literally born into fame, fortune and success. Twitterati loved dictionary’s remark and couldn’t agree more.

And just when people went wild with their ‘self-made’ remark. They tweeted meaning of “radical” to highlight it’s not the same as a racist remark.
