People are Upset Beacuse Kylie Jenner & JAY-Z are Tied on Forbes’ America’s Richest Celebrities List

Forbes just released its annual Richest Celebrities list and a lot of people are upset about it.

The list features the usual names: Oprah Winfrey at number 3 with $2.8 billion, Diddy at number 8 with $825 billion, and Michael Jordan at 4 with $1.7 billion.

Number 5, though, came in at a tie, with cosmetics mogul Kylie Jenner having the same net worth as rapper JAY-Z: $900 million.

This has people upset.

Social media users have blamed racism, saying  why a world-renowned rapper will be worth the same as a 21-year-old reality star.

Others, though, have quickly presented more practical reasons Kylie has reason to the position she is.

She was born into a wealthy family, they explained, and built on that, going into the cosmetics industry – a very lucrative industry – and using her massive online presence to sell her products.

Check out the top 10 richest celebrities list:

1. George Lucas, $5.4 billion
2. Steven Spielberg, $3.7 billion
3. Oprah Winfrey, $2.8 billion
4. Michael Jordan, $1.7 billion
5. Kylie Jenner, $900 million
5. JAY-Z, $900 million
