Kylie Jenner is on the Cover of Forbes and We’re Calling Bullsh*t

Yeah, we get it. Kylie Jenner is an influencing branding queen and is killing the makeup industry game right now (especially since she got rid of her lip fillers). But seriously, Forbes? Self-made?

Kylie Jenner is no doubt a beauty entrepreneurial success but she in no damn way “self-made”. She cashed in on her lip fillers back in 2015 and the rest was history. Oh, not to mention that she and the rest of her family are just piggybacking off of her sister’s, Kim Kardashian West, sex tape fame.Kylie used her rich white girl privilege, contacts, resources, and millions of Instagram followers to create a successful business.

“I am sure that Kylie Jenner also works hard. But, I don’t think I’ve ever worked as hard as a mom who works multiple jobs for a minimum wage. Hard work is not enough. There are structures that impact success (Vox Media).”

 

Is Forbes right for calling Kylie a “self-made” billionaire? What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments.
