Hers is the latest in a long line of celebrity clapback T-shirts.

hailey bieber is a proud nepo baby

Barefaced and strutting in her usual chicness somewhere in Los Angeles, Hailey Bieber just debuted a fashion clapback to recent internet drama (with help from a nearby paparazzi, of course). Paired with her dusty blue low-rise jeans and Prada shoulder bag is a white t-shirt that reads, “Nepo Baby.”

Taken from the word nepotism, “nepo baby” is a hot word in Hollywood and fashion right now, especially when discussing the recent phenomenon of celebrity children taking over modeling.

Bieber — who is the daughter of a Hollywood actor, niece of actor Alec Baldwin and married to Justin Bieber — hasn’t been left out of the nepo baby discourse. The model and Rhode founder has long been flagged for benefitting from nepotism herself. But now, she has officially joined the conversation — and the the long legacy of celebrity clapback slogan T-shirts. Anne Hathaway’s FedEx-inspired “FedUp” shirt. Britney Spears’ “Dump Him” tee, worn post-Justin Timberlake breakup. Then, there was Paris Hilton’s “Stop Being Desperate.” Fellow nepo babies Liv Tyler and Stella McCartney’s matching “Rock Royalty” shirts also give a similar energy.
