She couldn’t take the heat. In the aftermath of disgraced actress Lori Loughlin‘s college admissions scam scandal, her daughter Olivia Jade is really feeling the backlash. The 19-year-old social media star’s comments section were flooded with tons of hate, so much that Olivia was forced to disable comments on Instagram and YouTube.
Shortly after news broke that Lori, 54, along with dozens of other defendants, was indicted on charges related to a nationwide college admissions scam, fans flooded Olivia’s Instagram comments with scathing messages. “Makes me sick that people like you KNOWINGLY benefit from your GREEDY parents when kids like mine WORKED THEIR ASSES OFF PLAYING FOOTBALL to EARN just a PARTIAL SCHOLARSHIP!!!” one angry fan wrote before Olivia disabled her comments. “Our working middle-class family has something that your pathetic family doesn’t have and that’s MORALS AND ETHICS. Those are qualities that cannot be bought with Mommy and Daddy’s money. You should be kicked out of college and loose any and all credits since they are fraudulent.”
As In Touch previously reported, Lori and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly “agreed to pay bribes totaling 500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters [20-year-old daughter Isabella and 19-year-old daughter Olivia] designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”
Lori turned herself in on Tuesday, March 13, and was later released that same day after she made her appearance in court and posted $1 million bond. In the days after her arrest, Lori and Olivia started to feel the fallout of the scandal — Hallmark’s parent company Crown Media Family Network severed ties with Lori and Olivia lost her partnership with Sephora.
And Olivia’s future at USC doesn’t seem so bright. An insider previously revealed to In Touch that she “is not returning to USC.” “Everyone is talking about her and she’s terrified she’ll be attacked by bullies because of the scam,” the source said. “Right now, she feels like her whole life is over!”
