  • Two Indian-origin women on Forbes list of America's richest self-made women

You know it's something when a dictionary feels the need to weigh in.

Once she crosses the $1 billion mark, she will unseat Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest-ever self-made billionaire. "Welcome to the era of extreme fame leverage". Kylie alone owns all these dollars.

Kylie Jenner has been slammed for being called a "self-made billionaire" by Forbes. The problem lies where the Magazine lists her as a "Self-Made billionaire"... "Her story is not inspiring or motivating for anyone". "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". The daughter of Caitlyn and Kris Jenner, Kylie got a taste of celebrity at a young age from starring on the hit show Keeping Up with the Kardashians alongside her sister, Kendall; her half-sisters, Kourtney, Kim and Khloé Kardashian; and her half-brother, Rob. The magazine estimates Jenner's net worth to be roughly $900 million, making her the 27th-richest self-made woman in the United States.

Kylie Jenner established her cosmetics company on 2016 when she was 19-years-old.

And the internet's favorite authority on words and their meanings hinted that maybe the term doesn't totally apply in Jenner's case.

Due to this, many folks online found the fact-check pretty gratifying, and deemed Dictionary.com's tweet a sweet, sweet serving of shade.

CNN has reached out to Forbes for comment.
