Many of us are taught not to publicly discuss finances. Whether it’s out of shame, the belief that it just isn’t anyone else’s business, or the desire to conceal how much they really have, plenty of people are shy around the topic of money. You might be able to guess how affluent a person is based on where they live, what their occupation is, how they live, what kind of car they drive, etc. But for the most part, everyone else’s finances are a mystery to us.
Except celebrities. The internet holds plenty of guesses of the net worth of various famous people, from professional athletes to the president of the United States, but sometimes we don’t even have to guess. Occasionally, a celebrity will give a public service announcement flaunting their wealth online for all to see.

Trying to fathom a billion dollars is difficult enough, but trying to fathom ten billion dollars is even harder. Supposedly, that’s George Lucas’ net worth, by the way.

Whether or not you believe billionaires should even exist is a discussion for a later time, but many people can agree that boasting about your wealth online is a bit distasteful. Didn’t their parents ever teach them that bragging is rude? Especially given the recent inflation rates, the insanely high costs of housing and how difficult finding a high paying job has become, I don’t really see the logic in flaunting exorbitant wealth in the faces of millions of followers who are likely strapped for cash.
Now, you might be thinking that these posts are inspirational. If you…
