Can Kylie Jenner Be 'Self-Made' and From a Rich Family at the Same Time?

Kylie Jenner is officially the youngest self-made billionaire in the world at 21, according to Forbes, beating out Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, who didn't become a billionaire until he was the ripe old age of 23. 

What's made her so rich? It's thanks to her $900 million business, Kylie Cosmetics, and its signature Lip Kit, hundreds of thousands of which have been sold online. 

But the declaration has sparked outrage on social media by those who take issue with the term "self-made," claiming Jenner's heritage set her up for success. 

After all, it's sister Kim Kardashian who initially brought the Kardashian-Jenner family so much fame and mom Kris Jenner who realized how to cash in on it. 

Liz Claman, anchor of the Fox Business Network show "Countdown to the Closing Bell," told Inside Edition the backlash is ridiculous.

"What she has done is expertly utilized her social media platform to sell a product that people want," said Claman. "And it was a product she created and therefore that should end the discussion.

"She made it, by herself, and that's self-made."
