Does Reese Witherspoon’s son Deacon Phillippe have too posh of a pad? The New York University student let TikTok star Caleb Simpson — whose 7.8 million followers watch him tour expensive homes — walk through his swanky college apartment in New York City Thursday and now he’s getting backlash for being a nepo baby.

Yup. I’m so sick of these celeb kids showing off their expensive shit as if they worked hard to earn it. Mom and dad pay for you to live in that luxurious apartment, you didn’t earn it.

I hate him and his roomates. Yet I fucking LOVE the apartment. That's really my style.

OP, I know you were just quoting Page Six but this is so annoying. In the above sentence, "of" shouldn't be there. "Too posh a pad" is fine.
I see this error everywhere now and it makes the writer sound illiterate.

That apartment is very New York cool. At least Deacon is going to school and not whining about his rich mother or getting face tattoos... I'm looking at you Presley Gerber

I don’t understand the outrage or the surprise that he lives in a nice apartment. He has wealthy parents.
|by Anonymous||reply 8||November 15, 2023 10:58 AM|
Are his rich parents not supposed to support their son at college? I don’t get the outrage. Plus his parents are rich due to their own talents not inherited wealth. They can do what they want with their money.

A nepo baby is someone who is granted easy entry into a career.
He’s just going to school.

R10, And to be more precise: The SAME career as a parent.
Otherwise, the word means nothing more than "child of a successful and often famous parent."
Is Malia Obama "a nepo baby"? No (not yet). Jenna Bush? No. "Nepo babies'" siblings who entered different careers? No.
Donald Trump? Yes. Enrique Iglesias? Yes. Dubya Bush? Yes. Michael Douglas, Kate Hudson, Charlie Sheen, Sofia Coppola? Yes.

The outrage is because Deacon didn’t bend over and show us that hot pink twink stink(hole) during the tour.

The apartment is nice given his age and the fact that he can live in that neighborhood, but at least he has 2 roommates.
It’s not THAT swanky. I was expecting something a lot fancier honestly.

r13 No, it does not need to be the same career at all. If the parent is using their connections to get their kid in a job in a different field, that's still nepotism

R19, "Employing or appointing" indicates "in the same career area." Else how can one "employ or appoint"?

Erm, it’s not like figuring out that billionaire Reese Witherspoon’s son is a nepo baby is rocket science. Of course he is. And he’ll be some crap musician who makes some crap music and takes an undeserved victory lap. Not hard to guess what this waste of space will do with his life.

Fucking hell, R30, what would the 20-year-old have to do to not to be a waste of human flesh in your books?
I don't like his mother, I don't like his father, I don't want to fuck any of them, and I'm not surprised that a child of successful actors (one very successful, but not by half a billionaire) should have something better than a bare bones dorm room. I wouldn't mind having a parent worth an estimated $440M, but the fact that I don't doesn't leave me spitting dirt mad and losing sleep about what a loser some 20 year old (who so far has done nothing but go to school) will turn out to be.

R35, you seem to be the one with the anger and anxiety problem. I’m not angry or losing sleep at all. Of course, he’s a privileged person. No surprise there. That’s why at 20 years-old he can call himself a musician and live in some huge West Village loft (which most struggling musicians could never afford) and go to NYU, etc. to give himself a little colour while he pursues his real aim of being an influencer. It doesn’t even require any work. I’m just going to guess he’s not going to be the next Elle Woods.
WHAT should he do with his life, you ask? Some people who are born into such extraordinary privilege do something called “public service”. Not all but some. That can always be an option. Y’know, flaunting one’s privilege in service to nothing but one’s self is another option. I can’t say it makes me angry or jealous but it doesn’t earn my respect.
These people are so cossetted, the idea that they would have something to write about or say is pretty unlikely. Just look at someone like Sam Levinson. Sure, he’s successful but he’s not able to create anything that’s recognisable as real life and that has limits.
I’m not angry with nor do I feel sorry for these people but I’m not sure they’re worthy of the platform they so easily attain. Time will tell.

Jenna Bush has her broadcasting job because she's the daughter / granddaughter of former US presidents. Daytime TV is stupid to begin with and she doesn't really add much to the situation.
Malia Obama did get that job with Weinstein, before the collapse. Guess why.

r45 The next time you hear someone say everyone knew what Weinstein was up to--Remind them the President of the United States sent his daughter to work in that office. People knew Harvey was scum and tried to make moves on some actresses, but thats the stuff that happens in hotel rooms, often in foreign countries, not how the office operates.

That's a good point about Malia Obama working w/Weinstein. Maybe the Obamas did know about his sketchy reputation but figured he would never pull that kind of shit on Malia Obama. Oprah may have vouched for Weinstein. Oprah is another person in a bubble. People are always kissing her ass, so she thinks the ass kisser is cool when, in reality, the ass kisser is only nice to Oprah.
