Kim Kardashian West has been upbraided numerous times for apparently making money while possessing no talent to speak of.
Most people display an enormous distaste for most of her lifestyle choices, but still she stays for the most part winning.
She was featured on the cover of Forbes magazine as part of their “New Mobile Moguls” story and immediately took to twitter to happily share the news.
Gushing about the honor and how proud her dad would be, the next tweet saw her clapping back at haters as she hashtagged, ‘not bad for a girl with no talent’.

In the issue, Forbes goes into detail on the staggering numbers of the reality star’s game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. Following its June 2014 launch, the game has generated $160 million in revenue and has been downloaded 45 million times.
Consequently, Kim Kardashian has earned $45 million from it.
The game actually made up 40 percent of her 2015 income of $51 million, a figure that snagged her the #42 spot on the 100 Richest Celebs list.
“I loved video games, growing up,” Kardashian told the outlet. “I remember I asked Kanye, ‘Should I do this?’ He was like, ‘Yes!’ That’s how he got into music because he wanted to do music for video games and wanted to create video games.” Kardashian was, however, a little hesitant. “I was like, ‘I wonder if people are really going to…mimic my life.'”
Eventually, she apparently went for it, succeeded almost comically, and now, is obviously going to keep going. Speaking about the tech industry, she said; “This is really going to be the next cycle of my career and this is what I want to focus on”.
“When people looked at me in a way like, ‘Why is she stepping into the tech world? That’s not her territory! Stick to reality TV!’ I was like, ‘No’ This is fun for me. Now I’m coming up with Kimojis and the app and all these other ideas. I don’t see myself stopping.”
