As if things couldn’t get worse.
Amid the ongoing college admissions cheating scandal, a clip has surfaced from 2017 showing “Fuller House” actress Lori Loughlin brag about how much money she dropped on her daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli’s education – and Olivia Jade looking particularly aware of the situation.
The clip is from a video Olivia Jade did for her YouTube channel with over 1.9 million subscribers, where she teaches her mother Loughlin, who was recently busted for paying bribes totaling $500,000 to get her two daughters into University of Southern California, slang words.
On the subject of slang words and phrases, Olivia Jade brought up a lyric from a rap song that goes, “England is my city.”
“England is not a city,” Louglin replied.
“I know, that’s why it’s so, so, so iconic on YouTube,” her 19-year-old daughter replied.
“If you said ‘England is my city,’ I would have said ‘Why did I pay all this money for your education?’” Loughlin told Olivia Jade during a YouTube clip in which the daughter tried to teach her slang.
“We’re just gonna leave it at that,” Olivia Jade then quips to the camera, smiling then immediately looking down at her phone.
The scandal made shockwaves last week when news broke that Loughlin and “Desperate Housewives” actress Felicity Huffman were among 50 people charged in an ongoing FBI investigation into fraud and corruption of elite college admissions.
There is a heated debate over whether the children should be punished for the crimes their parents committed if they had no knowledge of said crimes, though it is becoming apparently more obvious that some children were fully aware. Universities such as USC plan to treat each allegation involving current students and graduates on a case-by-case basis.
According to Page Six, Olivia Jade and her sister, Isabella Rose, 20, both dropped out of USC after the scandal broke because “they were afraid of being bullied.”
Their mother has since been booted from the Netflix show “Fuller House” and the Hallmark Channel. She turned herself in to authorities last week and was released on $1 million bail with travel restrictions.
Loughlin as well as her fashion designed husband Mossimo Giannulli and Huffman are scheduled to appear in court in Boston on March 29, Fox News reports.
