I believe Gracie comes from a wealthy family (her good fortune) that seemingly has no problem financing two daughters' skating ambitions. When I read how much it cost to train for a year, I wonder if the skaters aren't being gouged.
Aren't some people tired of beating up on Fumie by now? Especially if they claim their lives are so good in comparison?
She tweeted that she has never been prouder of Gracie after the free skate so I doubt there's any resentment. I'm sure she realized a while ago that she's the Karen to Gracie's Michelle.

Can anyone from or familiar with Japan put this in context?

Look at her behavior here in front of other younger skaters.
There are some skaters she doesn't hug with or clap.
I've always liked her.
Let her do what she enjoys. I feel bad about all the bashing here
I would doubt that Gracie and her sister are exempt from "sibling rivalry" .
