Olivia Jade, daughter of Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, has opened up about the public backlash she has gotten from the internet amidst the ongoing college admissions scandal that sent her parents to prison.
Olivia Jade’s parents were involved in a countrywide college admission scandal, in which, they paid a massive amount of $500,000 in bribes to college coach William “Rick” Singer who helped in admitting Olivia and her sister Isabella into the prestigious University of Southern California by mispresenting them as crew athletes. ,
As a result of the investigation into the conspiracy of college admissions at several top American universities nicknamed Operation Varsity Blues, Olivia Jade’s parents Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli were sentenced to prison last year, after pleading guilty to conspiracy charges for their role in the college scandal.
Lori Loughlin was released from prison earlier after serving her sentence for just two months while Mossimo Giannulli is currently serving a five month term, he will be released from prison on April 17.
This weekend Olivia shared a TikTok video in which she talked about the ongoing situation, she said-
“We were talking about being publicly shamed, and I was like, ‘Well, my situation doesn’t even compare, I’m not even going to start to compare it to yours. And she looked at me and said, ‘Olivia, it doesn’t matter if I’m drowning in 60 feet of water and you’re drowning in 30, we’re both still drowning.’ “
“I think about that quote every day because I think it’s so true and it’s such a bigger message to our world right now. I think we’re all very quick to judge. I think we’re all very quick to put people down. And I just want people to remember, if your feelings are hurting, if they’re valid to you, they’re valid.”
“And it doesn’t matter if someone is going through worse. You’re allowed to have a hard time in this world. But that doesn’t take away from somebody else, and that shouldn’t take away from you. We’re all human beings.”
Olivia Jade is a social media influencer, and of course. due to such wide backlash from the public she eventually lost brand deals with Sephora, Amazon, and several more.
