Chrissy Teigen made humorous references in the wake of an admissions scandal involving Lori Loughlin because she did not meet the requirements to enter a hospitality school.

As she questioned herself as to what credentials she needed to go to a hospitality school, Chrissy Teigen took a jab at actress Lori Loughlin on April 27. The 35-year-old wrote on Twitter:

"I wanna go to hospitality school. I am old and didn't take my SATs. How does this work now? How do you get into school?"

A sarcastic Teigen added, "Do I have to Laurie Laughlin [sic] photoshop myself being hospitable." After soon finding out her mistake, she corrected herself and tweeted that it's "Lori."

Teigen's joke referred to Loughlin's two-month imprisonment for involvement in the well-publicized college admissions scandal, a scheme that led to unfair admissions to elite universities.


Some parents have been accused of using photoshop to alter their children into sports pictures. Prosecutors claimed that Loughlin's daughters, Isabella and Olivia, were posed on rowing machines.

Regarding Loughlin's future, the source said that the "Full House" star wishes she could return to work.


In line with this, Teigen has joked about the college admissions scandal in the past. In March 2019, the cookbook author took to Twitter to post an edited photo of herself and her husband, John Legend.

Also in the photo was celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin and her husband, Mike Rosenthal. In the caption, Teigen asked whether the image looks real and that they were trying to get into Harvard.


Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have already served their prison sentences for their involvement in the college admission scandal and are now eager to move forward.

Giannulli's five-month sentence was recently lifted. In November, he was booked into a federal prison less than one month after his wife started her two-month sentence. In December, Loughlin was freed.

A source told PEOPLE that Loughlin is an outstanding wife, mother, and friend. She and Giannulli have taken full responsibility for their mistakes and want to get back on track, the source added.

Regarding Loughlin's future, the source said that the "Full House" star wishes she could return to work, and she will look forward to being able to spend more time with Giannulli.
