People age 55 and older were the age group that is least likely to say her wealth is self-made, with only 11% choosing this response
Forbes recently published an article saying that Kylie Jenner is set to become the world’s youngest “self-made” billionaire, sparking some online debate about whether Jenner’s wealth can really be considered self-made. The 20-year-old owns her own cosmetics line, but was initially catapulted to fame through her family’s reality show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
A slight majority (53%) of Americans don’t think that Jenner’s wealth can be considered “self-made,” while 13% say it is.
Younger millennials 18-24 years old were slightly more likely than other age groups to say Jenner’s wealth was self-made, with 16% of people in this group choosing this response. People age 55 and older were the age group that is least likely to say her wealth was self-made, with only 11% choosing this response.
Whether or not her wealth is considered self-made, most people don’t have positive opinions of Jenner in the first place. Data from YouGov Ratings, only 19% of people said they have a positive opinion of her, compared to 50% who say they have a negative opinion of her. And the rest of her family hasn’t fared much better. Her older sisters Kendall, Khloe, Kim and Kourtney also have high negative ratings.
