Twitter Busts Out the Full House, Aunt Becky Memes Amid Lori Loughlin’s College Admissions Scandal
The Internet is blowing up with snarky remarks as people connect Lori Loughlin‘s Full House character — Aunt Becky — with the breaking news of her alleged involvement in a massive college admissions cheating scandal.
Loughlin was charged alongside fellow actress Felicity Huffman and dozens of other individuals on Tuesday as the Department of Justice announced a bust in what they’re calling the “largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted.”
The charges stem from allegations that the accused paid large sums of money across several schools to bribe officials so they would accept their kids into prestigious colleges. Several athletic coaches are suspected of accepting bribes so they would pretend certain applicants were notable student athletes, and other exam proctors and administrators stand accused of granting admission to students who were accepted with false academic credentials.
Since Loughlin and her husband are charged with paying the University of Southern California $500,000 so they’d flag their daughters as recruits for the school crew team, some online news followers are complaining that this is ruining their memories of Rebecca Donaldson Katsopolis — aka Aunt Beck. Since the role is the most famous part of Loughlin’s acting career, people are cracking jokes about Aunt Becky’s fall from grace.
