Fans Donating Money To Kylie Jenner To Help Her Become The World's Youngest Billionaire
On 25th July 2018
Forbes recently released an article in which the 20-year old cosmetics mogul Kylie Jenner was claimed to be a potential youngest ever self-made billionaire who has built her cosmetics empire of $900 million in the past few years. However, Forbes has been facing major criticism from the public for calling Jenner self-made given her influential family background and the right platform she was given to make her empire.
#1 Forbes Latest List of World's Richest
Forbes recently released a list of world's richest according to which the 20-year old business mogul and the youngest of Kardashian clan is just $100 million shy of becoming world's youngest billionaire. Well as insane as it sounds, the fans of the beauty queen has joined hands together to raise the $100 million to make sure that Jenner reaches the goal of becoming world's youngest billionaire.
#2 Fans Are Collecting Money To Help Jenner Reach Her Goal of $100 Million
On Twitter, people started a trend requesting fans all over the globe to donate money to the gofund me page setup for the purpose to help them reach their goal. One woman tweeted, "we need to raise $100 million to give to Kylie Jenner so she’s a full billionaire! let’s fucking go! let’s send a message! no negativity." While another one jokingly tweeted, "Skipping my child support payments to help this fierce female become an iconic billionaire! I believe my daughters would support this if I were allowed contact with them!!!!"
#3 The Page Was Initially Set Up By Instagram Star Josh Ostrovsky
The Gofundme campaign was actually initially set up by Instagram star Josh Ostrovsky, who goes by the nickname 'The Fat Jew'. While it seems like a bad joke but people are actually donating for the purpose and though most of the donations have been about $5 (£3.80) reportedly one anonymous fan has donated as much as $1,000 (£750). So far the crowdfunding campaign has been able to make $2,000 (£1,500) so it's going to take some time for the 20-year old to reach her youngest billionaire goal.
#4 People Are Questioning Jenner's Title of Self-Made Billionaire
On the other hand, people are also questioning that if Jenner is going to receive money from her fans for self-made youngest billionaire goal than would she be able to call herself self-made anymore? This is something that people are questioning as one person tweeted, "She is the very opposite of self-made???"
While people are also questioning Jenner's title of self-made as according to the public Jenner received the platform and a heavy capital to build her empire so that basically does not make her self-made as she never started anything from scratch. One person tweeted, "Im not discrediting her success but hardly self made... sure she works hard and earned her success. but she was given the platform and had one hell of a capital to start up."
#5 Forbes Shared The News On It's Instagram Page
The cover was first shared on Instagram account of Forbes, it stated, "Kylie Jenner is on track to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever, ahead of even Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23. Find out how she built a $900 million fortune in less than 3 years. #SelfMadeWomen." Like we're all going to be able to do the same or something?" The post was shared by Kylie Jenner on her wall with a thank you note while it was shared twice by Kim Kardashian.
