So-called “nepo babies” — the children of Hollywood’s elite — have recently come under fire. People are noticing that people like the Kardashians, Deacon Phillipe (son of actors Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillipe), Zoe Kravitz (daughter of musician Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet) and Lily Collins (daughter of musician Phil Collins) have a leg up in the entertainment industry.
Many feel that some folks just wouldn’t be famous if not for their familial connections and that nepotism erodes people’s ability to rightfully earn their posts in life.

Vulture addressed the hot topic with its “All but Definitive Guide to the Hollywood Nepo-Verse.” The extensive diagram links the new generation of actors, musicians, writers, models, producers and directors to their industry parents and relatives.
People on Twitter quickly began parodying the diagram by making fake nepotism family trees.
Even Vulture, in a very meta move, got in on the fun.
