Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren defended Kylie Jenner in a Fox News column amid criticisms of Forbes calling the 21-year-old a “self-made billionaire.”
Lahren wrote that “haters” who are “moaning and crying Kylie Jenner isn’t ‘self-made'” need to “listen up.”
“Some petty people take issue with Kylie being labeled ‘self-made’ because she was born into the Kardashian family dynasty,” the conservative millennial wrote.
“Here’s the deal,” Lahren wrote. “Yeah Kylie was born into a rich, famous, and fortunate family and situation. So what? Instead of going out and getting addicted to drugs, crashing cars, or getting arrested, she took her fortunate upbringing and made it into a freakin’ huge empire. A billion dollar empire. Good for her!”
Those who criticize Jenner being labeled “self-made” in spite of being born into wealth are “just jealous,” she added.
“She built an empire with that head start and now her tax dollars are likely subsidizing many of those haters who sit on Twitter during normal WORK hours to talk smack,” Lahren mused.
“That’s pathetic,” she added before claiming that “a growing movement in this country with socialist-leaning undertones” is “demonizing” wealth.
“You’ll never accomplish anything sitting on Twitter ragging on Kylie or sitting on the couch waiting for a handout,” Lahren concluded. “Shut your mouth. Get up and do something.”
“And Kylie,” she added, “you go girl!”
