Starting in 2011 an internet meme featuring a picture of Phillips spread online called the Sheltering Suburban Mom; the captions on the image typically illustrated the perceived out-of-touch double standards suburban mothers hold against their children or their peers. Phillips herself was initially unaware of the meme itself; when it was first brought to her attention she claims to have been distressed, thinking it was about herself, not the archetype; she came to understand the joke now and claims she is nothing like the supposed suburban mothers.
