Time magazine recently named Kendall and Kylie Jenner two of the 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014, but some readers aren’t very happy about the decision. While the Jenner girls have impressive careers for teenagers, many Twitter users don’t understand how their careers compare to some of the other people on the list including Malala Yousafzai, a 17-year-old Pakistani education activist.

Both Jenner girls have established careers outside of their E! reality show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Kendall, 18, has modeled for Givenchy, Chanel, Tommy Hilfiger and more while her sister Kylie, 17, has started a line of hair extensions with Bellami Hair, E! Online reports. The sisters also wrote a dystopian young adult book called “Rebels: City of Indra,” and have a clothing line at PacSun.

They have accomplishments, but many fans don’t think they’re comparable to Yousafzai, one of two recent winners of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize. Yousafzai was on a school bus when the Taliban shot her in the head. She survived and has gone on to start the Malala Fund, which she uses to advocate for girls’ rights to an equal education. Pakistan’s national Youth Peace Prize was even renamed in her honor to be the National Malala Peace Prize, according to CNN.

Alongside Yousafzai and the Jenners, Sasha and Malia Obama, actress Chloe Grace Moretz, singer Austin Mahone, Vine star Nash Grier, Vlogger and “Dancing With the Stars” competitor Bethany Mota were included on the list. It seems that Grier — who, according to TMZ, shouted a homophobic slur on his popular Vine channel earlier this year – is the only other name sparking as much controversy as the Jenners.
