Kylie Jenner is officially the youngest person to ever make it onto the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, an “annual ranking of the highest-earning entertainers in the world”. Jenner was predictably pumped about the news. At the age of 19, she ranked #59 after raking in $41 million in the last year.

It didn’t take long for people to start questioning Jenner’s spot on the list based on controversies that have plagued her businesses. Kylie’s Lip Kits sell out within minutes but customers have complained of receiving subpar products. Jenner released a set of highlighters and customers took to Twitter to complain that their highlighter palettes were empty.
The controversies don’t stop there. Just this week, Jenner was accused of stealing designs from PLUGGEDNYC. The latest accusation is just the most recent in a long line of the Kardashian-Jenners profiting off of independent designers.
Because of the issues with her businesses, not everyone was ready to celebrate Jenner’s spot on the Forbes Celebrity 100.
Kylie Jenner was born into wealth, appropriates & profits off of others cultures & ideas so no, she doesn't deserves to be on forbes list.

For stealing clothes designs, sending out empty highlighters, lip glosses with broken brushes, half filled lipstick tubes, nice
