Kylie Jenner Wealth: When Forbes reported this week that Kylie Jenner , the 20-year-old cosmetic mogul from the Kardashian/Jenner family, was just $100 million shy of becoming the world’s youngest self-made billionaire, fans of the reality-TV star banded together.
On Twitter, multiple people joked that they intended to help raise the additional $100 million that would make Jenner the world’s youngest billionaire .
“Skipping my child support payments to help this fierce female become an iconic billionaire!” one woman wrote.
Now, the joke has been realized.
A GoFundMe campaign has been created in Jenner’s honor by Josh Ostrovsky, an Instagram celebrity who goes by the nickname “The Fat Jew.” So far, $268 has been raised on her behalf.
The campaign description reads: “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.”
While most people are donating about $5, one person gave $100. However, if the campaign goal isn’t realized, people won’t actually be spending any money on it — for now, it’s only an act of internet satire.
This isn’t the first time the internet has crowdfunded on the behalf of an extremely wealthy person.
A GoFundMe campaign that kicked off in April raised more than $7,000 to purchase a couch for Elon Musk after CBS reported that Musk had been sleeping on the floor of Tesla’s factory.
