Forbes magazine just named Kylie Jenner as the youngest self-made billionaire defeating Mark Zuckerberg Chief Executive Officer of Facebook, Dictionary.com however, is not on the same page with the ‘tag’. Kylie Jenner, 21, the half-sister of reality television stars Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, made the annual Forbes list of billionaires after debuting her Kylie Cosmetics online in 2015 with $US29 ($41) lip kits containing matching lipstick and lip liner.

Forbes said she was both the world's youngest billionaire and also the youngest ever self-made billionaire. "She's the youngest-ever self-made billionaire, reaching a ten-figure fortune at a younger age than even Mark Zuckerberg [who was 23 when he hit that mark]," Forbes said.

Taking a savage dig at the ‘youngest self-made’ billionaire tag, Dictionary.com threw their own share by posting this, ‘’ Haven't we gone over this?

Self-made: Having succeeded in life unaided’’. We are guessing, the dig has somewhat to do with the fact that a campaign was launched on social media to contribute money for Kylie to become the youngest billionaire. The internet wholly agrees with Dictionary.com on this one.

After Dictionary.com posted the blatant reply to Forbes on Kylie Jenner, netizens have poured their sidings on the online dictionary. Showing their support for Dictioanary.com and their disapproval for the youngest billionaire tag, one user wrote, ‘’ Bless dictionary[dot]com for always telling the truth’’. Another user took a dig at the fact that Kylie Jenner was born with a sliver spoon, the user wrote, ‘’ Watching Dictionary.com own a spoiled rich kid: = Priceless’’.
