If you think the dictionary was boring, just follow Dictionary.com and Merriam Webster on Twitter. In recent years the wordsmiths have been landing sick burns online left and right, with specific sassiness saved for non-other than President Donald Trump (his typos seem to rub them the wrong way).

But it appears Dictonary.com now has another controversial celeb in its sights – reality star Kylie Jenner. In particular, Forbes decision to call her “the youngest self-made billionaire” on its most recent cover. In an issue celebrating the 60 richest self-made women in the US, the 21-year-old made the cut, despite by definition not actually being self-made.

Although her beauty empire, Kylie Cosmetics, is worth an impressive $900 million, Jenner is technically not self-made as she was born into a wealthy family, as well as enjoying years of fame thanks to her family’s reality TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Dictionary.com quickly picked up on Forbes incorrect use of the term and called them out for it.

Ouch! Would you like some ice for that burn Ms Jenner?

And of course, the Twittersphere LOL’ed
