Same reason professional football players are paid more than scientists or professors. Same reason a tenured professor at a university is paid less than that university’s football coach.
Because the US values athleticism over academia. And it sucks.
Nope, it’s called being paid for the monetary value you bring. If you make 1 million dollars but help bring in 10 million you are a great value.
But honestly what are they bringing to society? Nothing. Just because you make the money doesn’t mean you’re an asset.

most of my Saturday was spent looking up stuff about Bina48.
BINA48 is a project of Terasem Movement, Incorporated (TMI) and is designed to test whether a person’s consciousness can be downloaded into a non-biological or nanotechnological body after combining detailed data about a person through the use of future consciousness software

I have a few copies of “Playboy” from the 1970s stashed away somewhere. One of them has a letter where a guy writes in saying, “I met this really gorgeous, sweet woman, and we were planning to get married, but she sat me down yesterday and told me that she had a sex change before she met me. Mr. Hefner, should I marry someone who used to be a man?” and the response was, “So she had a sex change, big whoop. Would you be asking this question if she’d made any other change in her life before she met you? You love the woman she is now, and that’s all that should matter. If you want kids you can adopt or something.”
I feel so conflicted right now
That awkward moment when Hugh Hefner is more trans-positive than most feminists of the same era.
Ohibò. Quando pure quello che consideravo un “vecchio porco” mi lascia piacevolmente basita.
