Kylie Jenner has been named the youngest self-made billionaire of all time, but not everyone is celebrating.

Critics including a YouTube star and even Dictionary.com derided Forbes for calling the youngest member of the Kardashian clan 'self-made'.

Jenner - Worth - Range - Kylie - Cosmetics

Jenner, who is 21, has amassed a personal net worth of $1billion through her wildly successful make-up range Kylie Cosmetics.

And on Tuesday Forbes tweeted that Jenner was the 'youngest-ever self-made billionaire, reaching a 10-figure fortune at a younger age than even Mark Zuckerberg'.

Jenner - Kleenex - Billionaire - Family - Celebrities

'No matter what she put out, people were going to buy it because she's part of the Kardashian/Jenner clan,' they added.
