The supermodel Hailey Bieber, who is the daughter of Stephen Baldwin and the niece of Alec Baldwin, has been receiving backlash from social media over Hollywood nepotism since January, when she wore a white cropped top with the words “nepo baby” during a day in Los Angeles. At the time, many social media users speculated that this was her way of poking fun at the debate.
In a recent interview, Hailey Biber talks about her nepo baby t shirt and the criticism she received over it. The model said in her reply that she was solely acknowledging her family background and was not making any statement that people believed.
Hailey opened up about her intention behind the outfit. She said, “My point to having worn the T-shirt was not to poke fun at it or be like, ‘Yeah I’m a nepo baby haha,’ type of a thing. It was more so to be like, ‘This is what everyone is saying and I want you to know that this is my way of responding to it.’ I’m just going to call myself a nepo baby, because I am one, and I embrace that I am.”
Justin Bieber’s wife said that whatever she did was not going to be enough for the internet. She accepts that she cannot win against the internet people, as they are criticising her over everything. Hailey said, “You’re going to sit there and call me a nepo baby all day long, but then I acknowledge it, and then I’m not enough of a nepo baby?”
