On August 21, actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli’s sentences for their involvement in the highly-publicized college admissions scandal were revealed on Twitter by the US Attorney MA. The tweet read:

“Lori Loughlin sentenced in #CollegeAdmissionsScandal to 2 months in prison, 2 years of supervised release.”

The tweet also revealed that Loughlin was mandated to complete 100 hours of community service and pay a fine of $150,000 during her two years of supervised release.

On hearing the news, several social media users were outraged. They felt that the actress and her husband had been let off easy because they were rich and high-class people.

Giannulli’s sentence was revealed to be a 5-month prison sentence, two years of supervised release with 100 hours of community service, and a fine $100,000 more than his wife’s.

Loughlin and Giannuli’s journey in the college admissions scam came to a screeching halt with the sentencing after more than 12 months of legal tussles.

On Instagram, users spoke out about the injustice as well. Many of them alleged that if Loughlin and Giannulli were regular people who were not famous, their sentences would have been much higher. Other users who joined in expressing their anger condemned the justice system.

With Loughlin preparing to face her future behind bars, her former co-star and other celebrities took to social media to share their reactions and opinions about her sentence. Show host and media personality Samantha Bee tweeted:

“Breaking News: Entrance into college unjust, tilted in favor of white kids with rich parents.”

Actor James Van Der Beek tweeted a thoughtful disapproving statement as his reaction and showrunner Brian Koppelman expressed his dissatisfaction by pointing out the unbelievable privilege that was evident with wealth.

Actress Lena Dunham penned a sardonic take on Twitter, writing that all the people involved in the scandal needed to gather their money to start a college where Loughlin would teach classes on smiling.

Actress Candace Cameron Bure, on the ABC sitcom, “Full House,” subtly reacted to the sentencing. Bure responded to an outraged Instagram user’s comment with a sad emoji and nothing else.

Loughlin and Giannuli’s journey in the college admissions scam came to a screeching halt with the sentencing after more than 12 months of legal tussles.

The court case first began in March 2019 when Loughlin, her husband, and other famous faces, including actress Felicity Huffman were arrested and accused of being involved in the scam.

As Loughlin and her husband prepare for their time on the inside, outrage continues to spread on social media.
