Chelsea Clinton is an honoree for Variety's "Power of Women New York."

How cool does Chelsea Clinton look on our Power of Women, NY, cover? Read her great interview with @RaminSetoodeh i… https://t.co/BMr3YAkjos

There's been confusion about the choice, with some pointing out that Chelsea Clinton's career to date consists of working at a consulting firm, a hedge fund, and then NBC — which didn't go that well.

More recently she's worked for her dad's foundation and stumped for her mom's presidential campaign, which also didn't go that well.

The interview with Clinton, published on Tuesday, discusses what she has done, including working for the Clinton Foundation.

"How cool does Chelsea Clinton look on our Power of Women, NY, cover?" an editor from Variety wrote on Twitter about the issue.

A lot of people responded to the question. "Not cool. Like, at all."

@Variety_Claudia @RaminSetoodeh Not cool. Like, at all.

Hey kids, recycling is cool.... TO THE EXTREME

@Variety_Claudia @RaminSetoodeh OMG SO COOOOL

Hey, fellow youths. Doesn't this hep, young go-getter look especially snazzy in their leather jacket? https://t.co/qUBCr0JDxh

And this person joked about the attention.

ME: lots of people exist LIBERAL MEDIA: not true, only Chelsea Clinton does https://t.co/sOZgSizDbB

People had their own questions.

@Variety_Claudia @RaminSetoodeh What precisely has this woman accomplished. Ever?

Hm.

Can we have one stretch of time where we don't have a Clinton front and center of something? https://t.co/BiEJNiq2jP

And many suggested that she was on the cover because of her ~name~.

"Stop trying to invent royal families."

@Variety_Claudia @RaminSetoodeh The US is a republic. Stop trying to invent royal families.

This person agreed with the criticism, but also said that Clinton looked good.

Everyone's making fun of that Chelsea Variety cover, and yes I agree people need to get over the Clintons, but know what? She looks good!

But a lot of people essentially said..."enough."

@Variety_Claudia @RaminSetoodeh She's accomplished nothing. Quit trying to spin it. #NoMoreClintons!

"Please," this person began.

Please stop trying to make this happen https://t.co/yyIwdfL0Ud
