I agree the privilege smudge can get a bit much at times, but this is some grade-A privilege laundering. Conflating common concerns of wealth and hereditary social class with imaginary concerns against “existing”. Don’t mind the gaps here, we are all just alive, amiright?!

“Don’t hate me for my obscene wealth, afforded to me by the grace of being born to the right parents and sent to the right exclusive schools. I’m just trying to keep that advantage and privilege contained to my existence and my kids. Of course I’m smiling when I’m winning 🤑!”
