Piers Morgan argues that Kylie Jenner became a billionaire because of her sister Kim Kardashian's sex tape.
Yesterday, it was announced that Kylie Jenner had been named the youngest ever self-made billionaire by Forbes. Obviously, the accomplishment is huge and given the success of Kylie Cosmetics, it's not entirely surprising. However, it was guaranteed that people would try and find a way to tear her down because of it. Piers Morgan regularly makes controversial comments, recently feuding with Ariana Grande on social media. Today, he took aim at Kylie Jenner, bringing her down after she officially upped her net worth to $1 billion.

On Good Morning Britain, Morgan was speaking about how the "self-made" part of Forbes' statement can be debated. It's a title that many have argued since it was announced last year that she was nearing the mark. Piers is downscaling everything that Kylie has accomplished by herself though, giving all the credit to Kim Kardashian, her sister, for the infamous sex tape that leaked. At this point, it's a pretty antiquated argument if the sex tape is all you're going to bring up to discredit the Kardashians after staying relevant for an entire decade. Morgan goes on to say that the sex tape is the reason why the entire family has become "hugely rich."
He discusses the topic at hand for about a minute before insulting Kylie Jenner, ranking her on his personal scale of the prettiest Kardashians. "Do you know what I find amazing?" asked the host. "Think about Kylie Jenner... she's not even that good looking, is she? I would have her number four on the list of Kardashians."
