‘We love Hillary!’ Unfortunate tweets resurface, mockery ensues as Twitter reacts to actresses embroiled in college scandal

The largest college admissions cheating scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice was announced on Tuesday, a nationwide scandal that included some of the most elite schools in America.

Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, University of Southern California and UCLA are among the schools involved, with wealthy parents suspected of paying up to $6.5 million to have their children placed into these universities.

Among those charged were actress Felicity Huffman, who starred in the ABC series “Desperate Housewives,” and Lori Loughlin, who played “Aunt Becky” on the sitcom “Full House.”

The way the scam worked is that parents would pay a middle who would direct money to SAT or ACT administrator or a college athletic coaches to ensure that their children would be admitted.

As you might expect, social media was all over it.

It doesn’t appear that the schools were involved and most of the children reportedly were not aware that their admission was bought with bribes.

As for Huffman, she and her husband, actor William H. Macy, may have sealed their fate when it comes to looking for a presidential pardon — should they be convicted, of course.


And to be doubly sure President Trump is in no mood to assist, Huffman called his administration out by name in 2017.


But back to Aunt Becky… er Loughlin, court documents say she “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”


It’s fair to say of the online reaction that hilarity prevailed in the not-so-funny story.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
