Ahh, college admissions. A stressful, intense, and hard process. Well that is if you aren’t Lori Loughlin’s daughters who got into the University of Southern California because $50,000 was paid under the table so they would get in.
That’s right, Aunt Becky from “Full House” is a big suspect in the current investigation of a college admission scandal.
Other celebrities, like Felicity Huffman of “Desperate Housewives,” are being charged in the ongoing investigation of college admission scams throughout the United States. Huffman paid $15,000 to rig her daughter’s SAT scores according to ABC News.
As for Loughlin, she has been accused of paying half a million dollars to have her daughters recruited for a sport they never played.
This has caused a major outbreak of hate comments to both of the celebrity mothers and even their kids.
Because of the backlash, which many see as rightfully deserved, Huffman and Loughlin have changed the settings of their social media.
Loughlin approached the situation by deleting her whole Instagram account along with hiding all of her tweets.
Her daughters have even reacted and changed their social media by disabling comments on Instagram.
However, Loughlin’s youngest daughter Olivia Jade has left her YouTube channel with nearly two million subscribers untouched.
With the YouTube channel not set as private, the comment sections of most of Olivia Jade’s videos have quickly become almost forum-like.
Users leave their “roasts” on her in the comment section in hopes she will see it.
When looking through those comments, some are advocating that the daughters didn’t know about the scam. But there have been claims of an affidavit that states they were knowledgeable about the scam.
In regard to others who have been accused, there has been four coaches at USC accused of the scam.
Now here’s an idea, what if the sport Loughlin’s daughter had never played was coached by someone else involved with the scam? Only time can give us that answer.
With the scandal including over 50 people being accused, many want to see things change within the schools. Specifically have the admissions policies and regulations be looked over and changed if needed.
As for USC, they’ve already started looking into their policies.
But is looking into the policies what needs to be done or should the people who are working within admissions be questioned?
Because of the scandal being so large, it makes sense to approach the policies first. But even if they are altered, does it matter?
In the end, the admissions administration still let Loughlin and Huffman’s daughters in along with others who paid their way.
