Kylie Jenner has more than 108 million followers on Instagram. This is translating into serious cash per post for the 20-year-old. According to the firm D’Marie Analytics, she makes over $1,000,000 per post across her social media portfolio. This means that every one of Jenner’s tweets, Snapchat Stories or Instagram posts including is reportedly equivalent to $1 million. The Kylie Cosmetics founder’s sisters trail far behind.

This stunt will go a long way into further delegitimizing Kylie Jenner as a “self-made” billionaire.

Comedian Josh Ostrovsky has started a GoFundMe page to raise the remaining $100 million that will catapult the youngest of the Jenner/Kardashian siblings into the billionaire stratosphere.

Jenner appears on the current issue of Forbes, which named the 20-year-old as the youngest person ever to appear on its annual rankings of America’s “self-made” women. The publication estimated the lip kit mogul’s worth at about $900 million.

Ostrovsky, who also goes by The Fat Jewish moniker, quickly sprung into action to right this wrong.

“Kylie Jenner was on the cover of Forbes Magazine today for having a net worth of 900 million dollars, which is heartbreaking,” he wrote on the Let’s Get Kylie to a Billion GoFundMe page.

“I don’t want to live in a world where Kylie Jenner doesn’t have a billion dollars,” he continued. “WE MUST RAISE 100 MILLION DOLLARS TO HELP HER GET TO A BILLION, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.”

His intentions might be good — most likely just comical but already there had been backlash about Jenner being “self-made,” with detractors pointing out that she was born into a wealthy clan that accumulated even more riches over the last decade as reality TV’s first family.

GoFundMe donations amounting to $100 million donation won’t silence those critics.

Jenner, according to People, has surpassed older half-sister Kim Kardashian West as the most profitable member of the Jenner/Kardashian kids. If her Kylie Cosmetics line continues to grow at its current pace, she will likely take over as the youngest ever self-made billionaire from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

As of Friday afternoon, 50 people had contributed $529 to the GoFundMe page.
