Here are the best memes from Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman's arrest over college bribery scam
Full House actress Lori Loughlin and Desperate Housewives actress Felicity Huffman are among dozens charged in a massive nationwide bribery scheme to get privileged children with lackluster grades into prestigious colleges. For every student admitted through fraud an honest, genuinely talented student was rejected," said US Attorney Andrew Lelling. Numerous schools were targeted in the bust, including Georgetown, Yale, Stanford, USC and UCLA. School officials and SAT/ACT administrators were among those charged.
For Huffman and other wealthy parents, the plot involved cheating on students' SAT and ACT entrance exams. The scam was facilitated "in some cases by [individuals] posing as the actual students, and in others by providing students with answers during the exams or by correcting their answers after they had completed the exams," according to the criminal complaint. Huffman allegedly paid $15,000 so her daughter could score a 1420, 400 more than her PSAT a year earlier.
Meanwhile, the FBI says Loughlin and other affluent parents bribed college administrators and athletic coaches "to designate applicants as purported athletic recruits — regardless of their athletic abilities, and in some cases, even though they did not play the sport they were purportedly recruited to play." Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly paid $500,000 and staged a photo of their daughters rowing, so they could be recruited to the crew team at USC, despite not being part of a crew team.
Following reports of the scandal, Huffman was arrested by FBI agents with guns drawn, Loughlin has deactivated all social media, and many people have posted hilarious memes referencing the actress' famous TV shows. Here are some highlights:
You got it, dude!
Sounds better than Fuller House
Weird Al would approve of this parody
Did you know Lori Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade, is a YouTuber with 1.9 million subscribers? And that she frequently vlogs about her luxurious life, while complaining about going to school, because her parents "made her"?
A real tweet from Olivia Jade
Ha ha ha! It's so funny when privileged kids get into elite colleges at the expense of deserving students! /s
"I do want the experience of, like game days, partying. I don't really care about school." - Olivia Jade
Bad enough to be a fan of stupid shows like Fuller House?
And we would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for you darn FBI agents
Yes, there are Desperate Housewives memes too, but Full House ones are funnier
Wisteria Lane is in shambles
We found the informant
It's a good day for gossip
Good luck, Aunt Becky and Lynette Scavo!
