Olivia Munn Slams Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin: 'What These Parents Did Wasn't for Love'

(People.com):

Olivia Munn is taking aim at the parents involved in the nationwide college bribery admissions scandal — including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin.

The 38-year-old actress tweeted her views on Thursday, writing, “What these parents did wasn’t for love, it was for fancy diplomas.”

“Love would’ve made you spend that money on tutors to make your kids smarter, giving them an actual education,” she continued.

In a second tweet, Munn wrote, “The irony will be that these parents spent all this money to hustle into top universities and are now in the middle of this s— show just to find out in a few years that their kids only have dreams of being an influencer.”

The actress also responded to a fan who said they were reminded of Michael Brown, the high school student who was accepted to several Ivy League schools.

“There isn’t a cap on how many opportunities you should reach for,” Munn tweeted. “Unless you work really hard on your own merit and have that hard work pay off, well then you just crossed the line you greedy super smart kid who’s just trying to live your best life.”

Another fan jokingly referenced Loughlin’s daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, and her fame as a social media influencer.

Munn joked back, “I went to Harvard to be an Instagrammer. #ad #abs #fittea #waisttrainer #fitnessgoals #matchamornings #keto #lchf #superfoodmuffins.”

Prosecutors allege dozens of wealthy parents — including Huffman and Loughlin — paid exorbitant sums to admissions consultant William “Rick” Singer and his nonprofit organization, Key Worldwide Foundation (“KWF”), which prosecutors said was actually a front for accepting bribes.

Prosecutors allege Singer would then help students cheat on their SATs and bribe coaches and administrators to accept into school the children of his wealthy donors.

Singer pleaded guilty on Tuesday to four charges: racketeering conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of justice, PEOPLE confirmed.

Huffman, 56, is accused of engaging in a conspiracy to donate $15,000 in exchange to boost her daughter Sofia’s SAT scores.

Loughlin, 54, and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were both accused of agreeing “to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”

Neither has entered a plea, and reps for both have not returned PEOPLE’s request for comment.

The duo accounts for two of 50 people indicted as part of the alleged nationwide scheme, which broke on Tuesday when federal court records were unsealed in Boston. Other notable names include author Jane Buckingham.

In addition to parents and exam administrators, athletic coaches are also implicated in the scheme.

Admissions to the schools mentioned in the complaint are extremely competitive: For first-time, full-time undergraduates, only five percent of applicants get into Stanford, seven percent get into Yale, 17 percent get into Georgetown, 18 percent get into the University of Southern California and 29 percent get into Wake Forest, according to the U.S. Department of Education.
