In response, Ms. Linton posted a vertiginous wall of text suggesting
that rich people are nobler and more self-sacrificing than poor people
because they pay a lot of taxes, the tone implying that perhaps the
serfs of Instagram would appreciate her scarf more if they weren’t so
dung-caked. When Ms. Linton’s response, which contained the lines “Aw”
and “Your life looks cute,” didn’t garner the ecstatic genuflection of
the common people as expected, she made her account private. She later
apologized, calling the post and her response “inappropriate and highly
insensitive.”


nouveau riche |ˌnuːvəʊ ˈriːʃ| |French nuvo ʀiʃ|
