Pretty much what I think every time Kylie Jenner is mentioned as youngest self made billionaire.

Hmmm let‘s unpack that.

Who printed all the books she sold? What about the movies, who all contributed to those? Twitter, which she used to marketing and spread vile rhetoric, I‘m sure that increased her sales. The tons of people writing fanfiction for no profit, wonder if that ever increased her sales.

Let‘s go even more abstract for fun, the computers she wrote on, the house she lives in, the food she eats, where does it come from?

I could keep going, but I think the point has been made.

None of this is truly self-made, she has perhaps done more work and started from less than the other billionaires, but it is still reliant on working class efforts which are underappreciated.
