Fans of Kylie Jenner are totally here for her massive achievement of becoming a billionaire at 21... they're just not sure she really counts as 'self-made'.
Forbes have named Kylie Jenner the youngest self-made-billionaire ever... which immediately caused the internet to erupt with memes questioning whether she deserves the title.
While nobody's disputing the fact that her billion-dollar earnings are seriously impressive, people have been wondering about the 'self-made' part - given that Kylie comes from a millionaire family with incredible connections.
Here are the funniest reactions to Kylie's new title:
Today, at 21 years old, Kylie Jenner became the youngest self-made billionaire of all time. Today, at 21 years old, I picked mould off a piece of bread, ate it, then called my mum to ask if it would poison me— sophie (@sophxthompson) March 5, 2019
If you're not running billion dollar ventures, you probably have more time to worry about mouldy bread, to be fair....
However. the struggles are still hella real:
Me watching Kylie Jenner take the throne of becoming the youngest self-made billionaire, having a baby and having a loyal boyfriend and I’m still afraid to make doctors appointments by myself and have absolutely no clue as to what I’m doing with my life pic.twitter.com/Jwtztwh1Ia— desireetacoemoji (@badassdesiree19) March 6, 2019
We doubt Kylie is super bothered about what's being said about her not being 'self-made' - she's got literally billions to be spending.

Some of them haven't stopped laughing since the news was revealed:
... but at the end of the day, whether she's technically self-made or not, she's still absolutely killing the game.
Kylie Jenner is NOT self-made.— MKH (@Chloe4097) February 25, 2019
Does that make her billion dollar business any less of an accomplishment?
It just means she's not self-made.
