Kylie Jen­ner’s ‘bil­lion’ sparks in­ter­net out­cry


So­cial me­dia users had be­come ac­cus­tomed to the Kar­dashi­ans trend­ing for nudes‚ sex tapes or some kind of con­tro­versy.

But Wed­nes­day saw a ma­jor shift as Kylie Jen­ner’s Forbes cover stole the spot­light‚ leav­ing the in­ter­net all shook up.

Kylie is on the Au­gust is­sue of Forbes mag­a­zine as one of the few US women bil­lion­aires.

Ac­cord­ing to Forbes Kylie, at 21, is set to be the youngest-ever self-made bil­lion­aire. Forbes es­ti­mates Kylie’s em­pire is worth $900-mil­lion (R12-bil­lion).

The cover on so­cial me­dia sparked im­me­di­ate re­ac­tion.

Kylie posted the cover‚ ex­press­ing her ex­cite­ment, but many ques­tioned the us­age of “self-made” as the fam­ily’s em­pire has ex­isted for decades.
