Dictionary.com Just Roasted Kylie Jenner For Being Called A 'Self-Made' Woman

At 20 years old, I was finally getting my braces taken off and changing college majors. Kylie Jenner, at 20, became pregnant with Travis Scott, delivered baby Stormi, and became a billionaire.

I was worrying about whether or not I’d be able to afford gas for my ’97 Ford Taurus when prices skyrocketed to over $ 4 a gallon. Meanwhile, Jenner is getting written up in Forbes magazine.

The social-media, famous-for-being-famous juggernaut managed to leverage her glammed-out plastic surgery #goals and Kardashian legacy to build a wildly successful cosmetics business worth a whopping $ 900 million fortune.

And she did it all in less than 3 years. That’s some serious money management from someone so young. 

The financial magazine was so impressed with Kylie’s success in business that they listed her as number 27 in a profile on “America’s Women Billionaires,” where they covered America’s Richest Self-Made women.

They made it a point to call Kylie’s success “self-made” and said that she’s on track to become the youngest woman to ever become a billionaire.

But some people are having a hard time swallowing the “self-made” portion of that headline.

There’s a saying that a friend of mine uses for people who believe they are self-made but forget that their life of privilege and the family they were born into played a huge part in their success. It’s that they were born on third-base but believe they worked just as hard to make it to home as the person who fought to get up to bat in the first place.

I’d imagine that that’s why a lot of people are having some difficulty accepting the claim that Jenner is a “self-made” billionaire.

But there are some Twitter users who think that Dictionary.com’s salty response was uncalled for and just an instance of jealous pettiness that diminishes the success of the young cosmetics mogul.

They think that those “hating” on Jenner should take a page out of her book and become a “self-made billionaire” just like her.

But there were others who pointed out that Jenner had obvious advantages not afforded to everyone else, and there are plenty.

To show just how astronomical Jenner’s success is, someone pointed out some other notably wealthy women in the US.

That’s right, Kylie Jenner has more than doubled Beyonce’s net worth and has surpassed her older sister Kim, who was largely responsible for the family’s super stardom.

Her success has flabbergasted many people online.

Some tried to break down just how Jenner and the Kardashian sisters secured their fortunes.

While others were less concerned with how the sisters made their money and more concerned with how to secure some for themselves:

Must be nice to be a self-made billionaire.

Wendy's Just Roasted McDonald's Over Their Ice Cream Machine And We're On Their Side

Ever wandered into a McDonald’s on a warm summers day for some refreshing ice cream only to be told that the ice cream machine isn’t working? You’re not the only one. In fact, there’s an entire meme that centres around McDonald’s ice cream machines not working…

These are all classics, by the way. 

And now, the fast food joint behind everyone’s favorite Twitter account, Wendy’s, has got in on the action. In a reply to a tweet about Fisher-Price’s McDonald’s Soda Fountain, which includes an ice cream machine, Wendy’s delivered this burn…

Someone needs a visit to the burn unit. This isn’t the first time that the geniuses behind Wendy’s Twitter account have roasted McDonald’s. Here’s a reply to a tweet that McDonald’s corporate account probably didn’t mean to send out…

And Wendy’s also went on the warpath in response to McDonald’s announcement back in March that quarter pounder burgers in the majority of their restaurants will be cooked with fresh beef by mid-2018. 

McDonald’s just can’t catch a break. Social media users seemed to enjoy this latest burn even more that those last two. 

It even made some people hungry. 

For many, the winner was clear. 

This user is even planning McDonald’s funeral. 

Get these people a pay rise. 

Others were just as brutal as the red-haired girl herself.

Denny's Roasted People Who Don't Tip On Twitter And The Backlash Was Swift

Although Wendy’s is pretty much the master of savage restaurant Twitter accounts, Denny’s has a pretty strong social media game, too.

Whoever’s in charge of their social media has been a roll recently. But as with all winning streaks, there comes a time when it comes to an end. And for Denny’s, the end came in the form of a brutal, should’ve-seen-that-coming response to a tweet.

It all started with this pretty awesome joke Denny’s made about people who don’t tip their waitstaff.

However, Twitter had some thoughts about tipping culture that they wanted to share. And they didn’t hold back.

Depending on what state you’re in, labor laws for tipped individuals set minimum wages as low as $ 2.13, although there are some states that give higher hourly minimums than others. California, for example, starts waiters and waitresses off with $ 10 an hour, in addition to gratuities.

But depending on the restaurant you work at, you might make very little off of tips. 

So people kept the memes coming to remind the restaurant chain that those who dwell in glass American diners shouldn’t throw stones.

It started a conversation on the state of compensation in the US food service industry, too.

In any event, it’s hard to believe they didn’t at least consider people would throw shade at this tweet.

The FBI Made A Hilariously Bad Holiday Greetings Card And They're Getting Roasted

It’s the time of year that you start to hear “happy holidays” from friends, family, and businesses whose mailing lists you accidentally signed up to five years ago. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, which gets billions in taxpayer dollars to protect us, is no exception. Except this year they didn’t really seem to put much effort into it. In fact, it looks like an intern spent all of five minutes on it. And that’s being generous.

In fact, it looks like an intern spent all of five minutes on it. And that’s being generous. Here’s how they wished their followers on Twitter happy holidays…

LOOK AT THAT WORK OF ART. Unsurprisingly, they’re getting roasted pretty hard for it by Twitter users.
