Kylie Jenner, 20, has an estimated net worth of $900 million, according to Forbes.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.
