Meghan McCain shares message for her ‘Nepo Babies’ companions
Megan McCain entered the chat.
The daughter of the late Arizona Senator John McCain shared her take on the hot topic of nepotism in Hollywood and urged celebrity family members to embrace its benefits in life and in the industry.
“To my ‘Nepo Babies’ – just acknowledge your privilege, the opportunities your last name has brought you and move on,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories on Dec. 29. “It’s pretty easy.”
Meghan continued: “Eventually talent and guts come into play but let’s stop pretending this is a rational burden anyways that people know who [our] Parents are – you sound like assholes.”
The TV personality, a mother of one with a baby on the way, also opened up about nepotism on The View in July 2021, a week before she ended her run as a co-host.
In 2022, debate mounted over the role nepotism plays in paving the way to a star’s success. Vulture’s December 19 article “How The Neo Baby Was Born” went viral, while TikTokers have produced thousands of videos dissecting celebrity family trees, often accusing those who have become famous of sitting on the coattails of their A- to ride cunning relatives.
