Since the "Operation Varsity Blues" scandal broke in Hollywood, there have been some defenders of the parents involved, with claims that they were simply trying to help their children out of love.


"It's such a vulnerable thing to be a parent," said actor Justin Baldoni. "You only want what's best for your child, and I think some people get caught up maybe in ideas or schemes and don't even realize they're breaking the law because they're so in love with their children."

In case you've been stranded on a desert island for the last week, some four dozen people were charged with trying to scam the system to get students into into some of America's most prestigious colleges, including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, USC, UCLA, and the University of Texas-Austin. Charged with federal felonies in the case are actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman.

But actress Olivia Munn, one of the stars in “Oceans 8," is not in the least bit sympathetic.

"What these parents did wasn’t for love, it was for fancy diplomas," Munn wrote Thursday on Twitter. "Love would’ve made you spend that money on tutors to make your kids smarter, giving them an actual education."

Munn has been brutal from the start. "The irony will be that these parents spent all this money to hustle into top universities and are now in the middle of this shit show just to find out in a few years that their kids only have dreams of being an influencer," she wrote on Tuesday.

When she was informed that one of the actress's children, Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli, already is an influencer, with more than a million subscribers on YouTube, Munn was even more brutal, posting a mocking tweet that said: "I went to Harvard to be an Instagrammer. #ad #abs #fittea #waisttrainer #fitnessgoals #matchamornings #keto #lchf #superfoodmuffins."


In a more serious post, Munn wrote on Twitter: "There isn't a cap on how many opportunities you should reach for... unless you work really hard on your own merit and have that hard work pay off, well then you just crossed the line you greedy super smart kid who’s just trying to live your best life."

Munn isn't the only celebrity mocking the scandal. Model Chrissy Tiegen has been having a blast with the story.
