*As we previously reported, “Full House” star Lori Loughlin was released from prison earlier this Monday morning after serving most of her two-month sentence for the college admissions bribery scandal.
She began serving her sentence on October 30 at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, CA and got out two days earlier. Loughlin pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge in May and admitted to paying the scheme’s mastermind $500,000 to get her two daughters into the University of Southern California under false pretenses. Her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, also pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge as part of a plea deal. He reported to the Federal Correctional Complex in Lompoc, California, on November 19 to serve a five-month sentence.
While most people are not shocked about her early release or short sentence, many social media are weighing in on her case since she‘s now trending. The news has also sparked a conversation about White Privilege, and beloved actress Janet Hubert from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” is sharing her thoughts. The 64-year-old took to Twitter and said: “So when white actresses commit crimes they get new shows, pilots, etc. Lori Loughlin …I assume, will get an Emmy for her time in prison. Hmmmm…oh to be white, blond, and privileged! No thanks, I would rather be bold, black, and dignified! #onlyinamerikkka”
