People are donating money to a GoFundMe campaign with a stated goal of helping 20-year-old reality star and cosmetics entrepreneur Kylie Jenner become the world's youngest billionaire.
The campaign was created by New York comedian Josh Ostrovsky, also known as "The Fat Jewish." Ostrovsky wrote on the GoFundMe page:
Kylie Jenner was on the cover of Forbes Magazine today for having a net worth of 900 million dollars, which is heartbreaking. I don't want to live in a world where Kylie Jenner doesn't have a billion dollars. WE MUST RAISE 100 MILLION DOLLARS TO HELP HER GET TO A BILLION, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.
Many on social media took issue last week with Forbes' labeling of Jenner as "self-made."
The magazine says the star had already earned millions from TV programs and product endorsements before launching her makeup company, Kylie Cosmetics. According to Forbes, Kylie Cosmetics earned an estimated $330 million in 2017.
As of Monday, the GoFundMe campaign has raised nearly $2,000 of a $100 million goal.
