According to @enews tweet, Lori did pay a bribe of $500,000 for her daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose to get into USC, and it is not clear whether the school would be expelling them or not.

This new realization has brought about different reactions from social media, with the spotlight on Lori's older daughter, Olivia Jade whose vlogging activities added to the already messy situation.

In a recent interview, the social media influencer who has over 2 million YouTube followers admitted that she never wanted to go to school and is only attending college to fulfill her parent's wish.

But that's not the video that's causing the social media frenzy, @bbmalxo posted a clip on tweeter where Olivia could be heard saying:

“I don't know how much of school I'm gonna attend. I do want the experience of like game days, partying. I don't really care about school as you guys all know.”

The video caused an uproar, with people referring to Olivia as a spoilt brat. She eventually released an apology, saying the comments broke her heart but still expressed her feelings about college not being her dream.

In a tweet, Oli declared making YouTube videos as her passion and would instead make clips than be in class. Most people are angry because of Olivia’s brattish behavior, while some are wondering why people are shocked since she bribed her way into college.

The release of the list by the FBI has ignited discussions ranging from different topics altogether. One of such is a debate about how bias the system is if it would offer admission to an undeserving rich kid over a hardworking student.

Clint Smith, a Harvard doctoral candidate, stated that,

“wealthy parents can buy their way into elite schools.”

Smith also touched the sensitive topic of racial discrimination where he said that students of color and low-income students are in the long run made to feel unworthy of their admissions.

On her last post, @starsrborn commented:

“Honestly the fact that you and your sister stole spots at USC from someone who worked hard in high school is beyond disgusting, ” the comment now has over 3,000 likes.

Olivia has since removed the comment section of her Instagram page after it was flooded with hateful messages and sarcastic memes.

The university released a statement about the matter; the school said they are aware of the ongoing FBI investigation and assured the public that they would be commencing their internal investigations and appropriate punishment would be given in accordance.

USC also promised to revisit its admission process to ensure this does not happen again. Lori has made no comments so far and all efforts to reach her has proved abortive.
