Kylie Jenner gets her own Gofundme page to help her become a billionaire
Kylie Jenner needs help to become the youngest billionaire ever
Kylie Jenner has often been on the cover of fashion and celebrity magazines, but this time she was on the cover of Forbes.
Forbes magazine is best known for its lists and rankings, including that of the richest Americans, of the world's top companies, and The World's Billionaires.
According to Forbes, Kylie Jenner is on the verge of becoming the world's youngest self-made billionaire. They have valued the reality star's Kylie Cosmetics company at $800 million, and Jenner owns 100% of it.
In addition to her earnings from TV programs and brand endorsements, this brings her total net worth to an estimated $900 million. This prompted an appeal on Instagram to help her get her billion.
“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.”

Comedian Josh Ostrovsky, best known for his controversial Instagram account The Fat Jewish, created a GoFundMe page to raise the last $100 million to get Jenner the Youngest Billionaire title.

That fact that there’s a gofundme page for Kylie Jenner to raise $100 million to become a billionaire is what’s wrong with the world— Emily Mackler (@emmyb96) July 13, 2018
Even though Ostrovsky act was a tongue-in-cheek dig at capitalism, Twitter followers reacted strongly to the idea of using a charitably focused institution as a joke.
Many pointed out that $100 million would be more useful to children with special needs, or war veterans, rather than 'a no talent' rich celebrity.
Others consider the idea obscene in a world where millions of children go hungry, and one commentator pointed out that perhaps there is an urgent need for contemporary society to rethink their values.
Even though Ostrovsky 's campaign is currently trending, it has only raised $36.
