Piers Morgan does not think Kylie Jenner is a ‘self-made’ billionaire, arguing that she is only this famous because of her sister Kim’s colorful past.
Jenner recently officially became the youngest billionaire in the world, making the Forbes 2019 list and taking the crown away from Mark Zuckerberg who became a billionaire at the age of 23. However, Piers Morgan has made it clear that he does not think she deserves it.
While on Wednesday’s Good Morning Britain, 53-year-old Morgan laid into 21-year-old Jenner, telling co-host Susanna Reid, “When you say self-made billionaire, I just thought she’d got it because her sister made a s*x tape and that is why they all became hugely rich.”
He added, “If Kim Kardashian hadn’t made that s*x tape that then got leaked… She took ownership of it, made millions, and made a family franchise out of it… None of them would have ever been heard of. When you say ‘self-made’, her sister had s*x with somebody, the tape got leaked, and the whole family cashed in. That I think is a more accurate account of this thrilling entrepreneurial story.”
He also went on to say that the 21-year-old is not “even that good looking”, saying, “I would have her at number four on the list of Kardashians, and the ones above her aren’t much better. I’m not being rude, the only hot Kardashian is Kendall [Jenner], the others… None of them are hot! If they weren’t Kardashians, famous for the s*x tape, they would not get into the average, top Croydon night club – and the bar is set pretty low in Croydon.”
He added, ” Kendall is the only one you can honestly say is model quality, Kylie is as dim as a lump of bread, before labeling the whole Kardashian/Jenner family ‘vacuous, talentless twerps’.”
He also said, ” We don’t want young girls thinking the way to get on is to be a Kardashian because that’s madness. Make a sex tape, make a billion – what kind of message is that? Especially with International Women’s Day coming up, is this what we’re celebrating?”
He also referred to Kris Jenner as a pimp, saying, ” Good old Kris, well every pimp needs to make money. If you make money out of your daughter’s sex tape, what are you?”
He continued, “The only good thing of this is Kim will be seething. She made the sex tape, she owned the sex tape, she had to perform… Poor Kim, she put the yards in for the tape. Ray J, why have his siblings not become billionaires? It’s so unfair.”
His rant about the Kardashians and Jenners caused the morning show to lag behind 9 minutes, which further caused Morgans to get into a shouting match with the producers. He yelled, “They’re screaming in my ear. “We are nine minutes over! We are nine minutes over! Come on, we are nine minutes over – what are you going to do about it?”
He also ripped out his ear piece and yelled, Here’s what I am going to do about it. I can’t hear them, and there’s quiet in my ear. No-one barking away going “nine minutes over!”
His yelling caused the producers to take the show off the air while ‘technical error’ displayed across the screen. Co-host Susanna joked that the producers were “getting their own back”.
The Kardashian Jenner family has not yet replied to Morgans’ heated insults.
