Kylie Jenner recently appeared on the cover of Forbes magazine. The story was about Kylie being on the brink of becoming the world's youngest billionaire. A controversial comedian named Josh Ostrovsky, also known as "The Fat Jewish," started a GoFundMe campaign to raise the $100 million she'd need to round up to a billion.
Kylie owns Kylie Cosmetics, a company that Forbes values at $800 billion. She's also made an additional hundred million from her television appearances and sponsorships.
According to Forbes, if her company keeps growing, she'll be the youngest ever "self-made" billionaire.
Says the Fat Jewish, "Kylie Jenner was on the cover of Forbes Magazine today for having a net worth of 900 million dollars, which is heartbreaking. 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. LINK IN BIO TO DONATE."
Believe it or not, people are actually donating money. In the account's first thirteen hours, 28 people donated $422. Less surprisingly, many people did not understand that the GoFundMe was a joke.
Obviously, saying Kylie Jenner is "self-made" is an extreme stretch. Many, many people leapt to the cause of pointing that out in the comments, though.
At the time of writing, the GoFundMe has raised $529.
Ostrovsky is best known for his 2015 social media scandal, in which he was caught screenshotting other comedians' jokes and posting them to his own accounts without credit. He has been persona non grata in the comedy world since.
