Selma Blair, Erin Foster, Rob Lowe and other celebrities joke about college admissions scandal that indicted Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman among others.
Last week, 50 people were charged in an admissions scandal where they paid to get their kids into elite universities. Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannuli paid $50,000 to get their two daughters into USC as recruits to the rowing team. Felicity Huffman paid $15,000 so that her daughters SAT scores would be raised.
Selma Blair joked about this on Sunday with a picture of a crew team with her son Arthur superimposed on it. She wrote, “Totally stoked to have just finished Arthur’s college #admissions papers. #gocrew #coxswain . I totally stole this from @ehastrof, and I am so giggly. And also, doesn’t Arthur look like #marykateolsen. I always see it. #teamplayer #collegeboy #varsity #totally #happysaintpatricksday ☘️ #leprechaun dream team.”
Boy Meets World star Danielle Fishel posted a picture of her whispering into her cast-mates ear, writing, “Topanga’s parents paid to get her into Yale.”
Erin Foster posted a screenshot of a text she received from her dad, David Foster, in which he said, “Thank god you didn’t want to go to college-I’d Be in jail right now!!”
Last week, Rob Lowe’s son John Owen Lowe, who attends Stanford University, wrote, “I studied for MONTHS for the SAT. Twice, sometimes three times a week. Tons of practice tests. Ended up taking the SAT multiple times as well. College apps were no joke. The amount of stress kids put into that to potentially lose a spot to someone unfairly is horrible. And let me say: I’m incredibly grateful that I had the privilege and opportunity to have a tutor and to afford practice test programs. A lot of kids don’t. And to think of them losing their chance at their dream school to someone undeserving is really, really gross”. Lowe retweeted with the message, “Very proud of my honest, hardworking sons.”
Loughlin and Huffman’s case is currently ongoing.
