Hold on to your wigs, ladies and gentlemen.

Kylie Jenner sat down with Marie Claire for its third annual Fresh Faces issue. Now, we're not entirely sure, but it sounds like she's saying she is responsible for the current wig trend among humans.

"I started wigs, and now everyone is wearing wigs," Kylie said in the magazine interview. "Kim [Kardashian] just used my wig guy last night...I just do whatever I want to do, and people will follow."

Is it possible that when Kylie refers to "everyone" she really means people with the last name Kardashian or Jenner? That's the only thing that makes sense because it's hard to consider wigs a trend when they have literally been popular for centuries.

Us Weekly rounded up a group of hilarious reactions from the Internet. Our favorite reactions include: "@KylieJenner you started wigs? What? Plz tell me they misquoted you. You are not that ignorant," one fan asked on Twitter.

Another person tweeted, "kylie jenner started wigs and i started checkered vans #impact."

Kylie lowkey responded on Twitter on Monday, April 11 when she said, "When publications switch up your words for hype.. Damn."

She never named Marie Claire, but it sounds like the cosmetics entrepreneur is backing off the controversial statement. But just in case Kylie needs a quick history lesson, Jezebel compiled a handy list of folks that wore wigs before Kylie came up with the idea:
