Watch out: This story may make you feel woefully inadequate about your own financial status.

"Calling Kylie Jenner a "self-made billionaire' is like claiming you made soup from scratch because you opened a can and reheated it", while another posted on Twitter: "For f*** sake, if you start the 40-yard dash on the 39-yard line, you are NOT self-made". While it is true her cosmetics company, Kylie Cosmetics, is worth multimillions, netizens do not agree that the term "self-made" applies to Jenner.

After all, she grew up in one of America's richest and most-followed celebrity families.

The story also reports Jenner, who became a mom in February, has also earned several million from her share of E!'s "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and endorsement deals with Puma and PacSun.

Thanks to her Kylie Cosmetics make-up empire, the 20-year-old is estimated to be worth $900 million, landing the new mum at the number 27 on the magazine's yearly rich list.

Armless Miami man charged with stabbing Chicago tourist
Jonathan Crenshaw is a fixture in South Beach, known for painting canvasses with his feet in the heavily trafficked tourist area. Neither men dispute that Coronado was stabbed, but Crenshaw said he was attacked first, according to the arrest report.

According to Forbes one more year and she will be the youngest billionaire in the history.

Forbes tweeted the story on Wednesday with the hashtag #SelfMadeWomen, prompting questioned whether "self-made" is an accurate description of Jenner's fortune. "Words have meanings and it behooves a dictionary to remind us of that".

Writer Roxane Gay defended that tweet after People magazine put out a headline saying Dictionary.com was shading Jenner. "Kylie is a master of branding, and she plays with the concept of mother - the more natural look - and her Kylie Cosmetics look, full glam".

CNN has reached out to Forbes for comment.
