Forbes is the place to go for numbers — but maybe not for words. Many people are taking issue with the magazine’s latest issue, after it placed Kylie Jenner on its cover and defined her as ‘self-made’, .

The publication branded her the ‘cosmetics queen’, declaring on the cover: “At 21, she’s set to be the youngest-ever self-made billionaire. Welcome to the era of extreme fame leverage.”

According to the publication, Kylie – who is set to turn 21 on August 10 – is currently worth an estimated $900million thanks to her cosmetics line.

The Internet immediately lit up with reaction, with even Dictionary.com appearing to throw shade.

On Wednesday it tweeted the definition: ‘Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided.

‘Used in a sentence: Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman,’ it added, posting a link to the Forbes article.

Many more on Twitter took offense, with one pointing out that “calling kylie jenner a ‘self-made billionaire’ is like claiming you made soup from scratch because you opened a can and reheated it.”

“For the love of God, I seriously want to break something when I see the very epitome of privilege described as “self-made”. For f*** sake, if you start the 40-yard dash on the 39-yard line, you are NOT self-made,” a second posted.
