Fair dues: if I were a 19-year-old influencer whose parents allegedly spent $736,000 buying my way into an elite university, I would also break my social media silence by flipping everyone off while repping a Snoop Dogg tee. Recent history shows that the uber-rich can basically get away with anything, so why the fuck not, right?
Anyway, here’s Olivia Jade Gianulli, the beauty vlogging daughter of Full House star Lori Loughlin and designer Mossimo Gianulli, returning to Instagram for the first time since she celebrated her mum’s birthday back in July. Take in the details. The thumbs-out arrangement. The “I got money” pose. Another woman patiently waiting in the wings. The fact she tagged The Daily Mail, Star Magazine, People, Perez Hilton, and “every other media outlet” who has reported on her parents’ alleged involvement in enormous the college admissions scam.
This is the face of someone who was allegedly siphoned into the University of Southern California after being billed as an elite rower. Her. A competitive crew athlete. It’s a breathtaking display of simply not giving a shit.
As it stands, Loughlin and Gianulli pleaded not guilty to charges of mail fraud and money laundering conspiracy in April, after reportedly turning down a plea deal which would have guaranteed prison time.
Earlier, Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman plead guilty for her own family’s role in the scam, issuing a lengthy statement expressing her “deep regret and shame”.
Don’t expect that kind of public contrition when Louhhlin and Gianulli’s next court date rolls around.Image: @oliviajade / Instagram
