Lori Loughlin's Daughter Under Fire for Comments After College Scam Breaks

Lori Loughlin's daughter is under fire for her comments about college days after the news broke that her mother and father bribed their daughter's way into USC.

The YouTube and Instagram star Olivia Jade said just last week that her parents forced her to go to college. She also takes about how her father 'faked his way' through school by using tuition money to start his design business.

Olivia Jade Giannulli's social media are filled with comments about the scam after news broke on Tuesday. Her parents have been charged with paying $500,000 to get her and her 20-year-old sister Isabella into the University of Southern California.

Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli allegedly paid to have their two daughters labeled as USC crew team recruits. That appears to be a downright lie given that neither of them is a rower.

The story is made even sadder by the fact that according to Olivia, she never even wanted to go to college. Her parents forced her, and they used their wealth to makes sure she got into the college they wanted.

"Mostly my parents really wanted me to go because both of them didn't go to college... I think they did fine," Olivia said on the Zach Sang Show. She also joked that her parents are hypocrites.

'I'm so happy they made me go, that sounds so terrible. They didn't make me. My sister goes to the same school and we're pretty much inseparable.'

In the same interview, Olivia also talked about how her father started his clothing brand Mossimo. She said he used tuition money to fund the brand.

"He, like, built his whole entire brand and he wasn't actually, like - I don't know if I'm supposed to say this - ever enrolled in college," she said. "But he, like, faked his way through it and then he started his whole business with tuition money that his parents thought was going to college. That's, like, such a different time. I don't know if I was supposed to say that, but it's okay."

She added, "So he started Mossimo then and it sold to Target. He was a baller."

Olivia started as a freshman at USC last September. She's drawn fire for her "ignorant comments."

She also told her YouTube following that she didn't "really care about school" but that she wanted to college experience of "game days and partying."

She even said, "I don't know how much of school I'm gonna attend. But I'm gonna go in and talk to my deans and everyone, and hope that I can try and balance it all. But I do want the experience of like game days, partying… I don't really care about school, as you guys all know.'

However, she's using the benefits of being a college student. She shared sponsored content for Amazon Prime on her Instagram account in September. It featured an image of her inside her USC dorm room.

'Officially a college student! It's been a few weeks since I moved into my dorm and I absolutely love it. I got everything I needed from Amazon with @primestudent and had it all shipped to me in just two-days,' the post read.

Critics have questioned whether Olivia should be in college, especially given that she cheated to get there and doesn't even want to be there.
