For those who work with words every day, the importance of their meanings cannot be understated. Whether subtly shifted by context or evolving with the times, language and its usage will always be a point of debate.
Which is why when Dictionary.com posted a refreshed definition of the word self-made and then tapped Kylie Jenner for their example sentence—people online cried "Shade!"
Jenner, who is on the cover of Forbes this month, was named one of the magazine's top 60 richest self-made American women, something Dictionary.com apparently took umbrage to. Which is why they reminded us of the real definition of "self-made" along with a nod and a link to the Forbes article.
Once they did though, Dictionary.com was accused of being, well, for lack of a better word—shady.
