You know it's something when a dictionary feels the need to weigh in. And within a year, they expect her to steal the title of youngest self-made billionaire from Mark Zuckerberg, who was closer to 23 when he passed that threshold, according to the story. "Welcome to the era of extreme fame leverage".

Robehmed's article describes how Jenner owns 100 percent of Kylie Cosmetics, which has very little overhead and marketing costs.

As people debate Forbes' decision to put Kylie Jenner on a list of "self-made" billionaires, Dictionary.com is wading into the discourse.

But many people on Twitter took issue with the magazine's claim that she was "self-made".

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. "So top executives at tech firms who are compensated for helping significantly grow companies make the ranks but not second-generation-women running family businesses".

Discussion around whether Jenner, whose upbringing in ritzy Calabasas was documented on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians", is truly "self-made" quickly exploded.

And the internet's favorite authority on words and their meanings hinted that maybe the term doesn't totally apply in Jenner's case.

The bulk of her income is derived from Kylie Cosmetics, best known for its lip kits.

CNN has reached out to Forbes for comment.
