Brands Are Dropping Lori Loughlin And Olivia Jade Amid The US College Admissions Scandal
Loughlin's daughters also won't be returning to college.
Earlier this week, it came to light that forty people have been charged in a massive college admissions scam in the US, one person involved being actress Lori Loughlin.
Loughlin was charged for reportedly sending $500,000 in bribes to get her daughters into the University of Southern California. People went absolutely mad about this, essentially because one of her daughters is Olivia Jade Giannulli – a YouTuber who currently has 1.9m subscribers.
Lori Loughlin was released from jail on Wednesday on a $1 million bond and is reportedly allowed to travel back to Canada to finish her “film projects,” BUT she has to surrender her US passport in December.

According to TMZ, Loughlin’s daughters will not be returning to college, despite the fact that the school hasn’t made any formal public decisions about their enrolment post-admissions scandal.
Olivia and Isabella apparently made the call themselves because they’re worried they’d be “viciously bullied” otherwise. What a shame.
The scandal is seriously affecting the careers of Loughlin and her influencer daughter Olivia Jade. Yesterday, The Hallmark Channel announced that it’ll stop working with Loughlin, who was a frequent star in the company’s TV movies and the series When Calls the Heart.
“We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations,” the company said in a statement. “We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin, including Garage Sale Mysteries, an independent third party production.”
Massive US cosmetics chain Sephora has also announced the company is scrapping Olivia Jade’s makeup products in light of the scandal.
In a statement, the company said, “After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately.”
