Forbes magazine recently featured Kylie Jenner on their cover with the headline “At 21, Kylie Jenner Becomes The Youngest Self-Made Billionaire Ever.” And it didn’t take long for the haters to come out, in force, to rag on both Forbes and Kylie.
Why? Some petty people take issue with Kylie being labeled “self-made” because she was born into the Kardashian family dynasty.
This is nothing new. The haters did the same thing back in July when Forbes listed Kylie as a “soon to be self-made billionaire.”
But now even Dictionary.com is coming after Kylie.
Tweeting the definition of “self-made” and throwing a hell of a lot of shade at the young mogul.
Here’s the deal, yeah Kylie was born into a rich, famous, and fortunate family and situation. So what? Instead of going out and getting addicted to drugs, crashing cars, or getting arrested, she took her fortunate upbringing and made it into a freakin’ huge empire. A billion dollar empire.
Good for her!
She’s worth more than all of her sisters, even Kim. She did something right.
Her makeup business, Kylie Cosmetics, is a smash hit. Her products sell out in seconds and she breaks the Internet on a regular basis.
According to Forbes, Kylie Cosmetics revenue climbed 9 percent last year to an estimated $360 million.
Oh, and up until that stupid egg upstaged her.
Her Instagram photo with newborn daughter Stormy was the most-liked photo on Instagram.
She’s the youngest billionaire in the WORLD.
Yeah, she has haters but she has BILLIONS more supporters.
Let’s be honest, those who are all up in arms over the “self-made” label are just jealous.
Yeah, she had a head start. Who cares?
She built an empire with that head start and now her tax dollars are likely subsidizing many of those haters who sit on Twitter during normal WORK hours to talk smack.
This isn’t just about Kylie. This is bigger than that.
There is a growing movement in this country with socialist-leaning undertones, that wealth should be demonized.
The king and queen of that philosophy? Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren.
They constantly demean the rich. They constantly demonize wealth. For what? To push their socialist entitlement programs and tax plans.
It's a petty, yet DANGEROUS notion that if someone has more than you, it's unfair and they should be attacked. Don’t worry that Kylie Jenner, Donald Trump, and Bill Gates have more money than you. That’s not your concern. Put that energy into doing something with YOUR own life to get where you want to be.
Life is not fair. Deal with it.
You'll never accomplish anything sitting on Twitter ragging on Kylie or sitting on the couch waiting for a handout.
Shut your mouth. Get up and do something.
And Kylie, you go girl!
Those are my "First Thoughts." From LA, God bless and take care.
