The judgment of "They're just famous for being famous" has been leveled against influencers, reality stars, nepo babies, and the like. It's the idea that a celebrity has a platform only because of who they are (or who their family is), not because of what they've done.

Kris Jenner sitting with three of her daughters: Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé Kardashian, who says, "But we're still entertaining people"
