After all, sibling rivalry is par for the course in families and a feud would certainly make for a good storyline on an upcoming episode of their reality show. One commenter even suggested Kim should post another nude photo to drum up some focus on her and steal the spotlight from her younger sister.
However, that wasn’t the case at all. It turned out that Kim was super supportive of her baby sister, reposting the cover of Forbes to her Twitter account not once but twice in honor of Kylie’s success.
Kim obviously took notice of the haters, though, as she retweeted a very appropriate response to anyone who thought the Kardashians weren’t self-made or hard workers. The tweet said the following:
“The Kardashian Jenner women are the smartest, hardest working women that I know. They are the first to start their work day before the sun rises and always the last ones to end it. Debate and hate all you want but their success and longevity is no accident.”
Commenters suggested that people love to hate the Kardashian family because they are modern entrepreneurs that we haven’t seen the likes of before. Like anything, innovation takes time to get used to and be accepted, but considering Kylie’s about to become a billionaire, we better get used to it fast.
If the Kardashians know anything, it’s that they are worth more together than apart, so this is one family that’s going to stick together and support one another. Plus, some credit should be given to Kylie for starting her own business.
Considering how much money the family she was born into has, she didn’t have to do anything with her life except become a socialite. Her personal ambitions are admirable, especially the fact that she owns the entirety of her company. She clearly has some good business sense.
To look at things a different way, Kylie’s options could be seen as limited considering how famous her family is. Could you imagine her as a chef? People would be clamoring into the kitchen to get a glimpse of her. Or how about if she was a tour guide? No one would be looking at the city!
Okay, okay. I’m not giving her sympathy. Nearly anyone would prefer to be rich, famous and beautiful in exchange for a little loss of privacy or anonymity. But considering her status, Kylie has certainly used her position to its full advantage.
Perhaps her business smarts are the reason why she’s eclipsed not just her other famous family members, but every other young person to become the youngest female billionaire in history. And for that, regardless of whether you love her or hate her, she deserves a round of applause.
