Loughlin, who came into the limelight playing Aunt Becky in Full House has been a constant face on our screens for over twenty years.
The news that she was embroiled along with her husband, Mossimo Giannull in charges of fraud, shocked America.
Olivia Jade, one of the couple's 2 daughters, had become a public figure before the scandal.
Since the college admission scandal, Olivia Jade has been absent from YouTube. That is until now...
Surprise, surprise, Olivia Jade's return was not met with much support.
Here's what happened...
Lori Loughlin made a name for herself on Full House
via: IMDbThe family-based sitcom, Full House was a huge success. Not only did it springboard Loughlin's career but it was also Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's breakthrough. Full House ran from 1987 until 1995. Loughlin was there through it all, playing the beloved Aunty Becky.
Have you been watching Fuller House?
via: IMDbIn 2016, Netflix decided to make a spin-off of the original sitcom and call it Fuller House. A lot of the old cast returned, including Aunty Becky and her husband, Uncle Jesse played by John Stamos. However, since the admissions scandal, Netflix has dropped Loughlin. Fans are still not sure how Netflix is planning to explain her character's absence from season 5.
Loughlin has also been dropped by the Hallmark Channel.
via: IMDbThe Hallmark Channel was the first to sever ties with Loughlin after she was arrested for the admissions scandal. In March 2019 Loughlin was dropped by Hallmark and her scenes from season six of When Calls the Heart are being edited out.
Olivia Jade lost her advertising deals.
Lori and Mossimo face jail time.
via: Getty ImagesThe investigation is still ongoing. But it is widely understood that the couple paid $500,000 in bribes to a coach at USC to give places to their daughters under the guise that they would be part of the athletics team. They are currently on a one million dollar bail, awaiting charges.
Olivia Jade is not facing any charges.
via: Getty ImagesAccording to her father's court hearing, Olivia Jade had found the USC application confusing and had allowed someone who is facing charges to fill it out for her.
Olivia Jade wasn't even bothered about school.
via: Getty ImagesOne of the things that have infuriated the public with this case is that Olivia Jade clearly wasn't bothered about her education. Simply because the family is incredibly rich they felt as though they should get everything, even a sports scholarship, which would have to be taken the place of someone who actually deserved it.
"... I do want the experience of like game days, partying ..."
The Loughlin-Giannull clan had no idea they would get caught out.
via: IMDbIt is pretty clear that Lori and Mossimo are facing time, nevermind the effect this has had on Lori's acting career and Mossimo's fashion empire.
Olivia Jade's parents might not be around this Christmas...
Felicity Huffman famously got sentenced to fourteen days in Jail.
via: Getty ImagesAnother famous face in the college admissions scandal was actress, Felicity Huffman. Huffman pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 14 days in jail and ordered to do 250 hours of community service.
They could face up to fifty years behind bars.
via: Getty ImagesThe fate of Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannull remains uncertain. Because Lori and Mossimo pleaded not guilty to the original charges they are now facing bribery charges which carry a much heavier sentence. According to Forbes, "as a result of these new charges, which could carry up to 10 additional years in prison, and previous charges, Loughlin and Giannulli each face 50 years in prison."
I think it's safe to say the family is not popular right now...Whilst there are plenty of people who feel sorry for the family, the majority of Americans have no time for these privileged criminals.
It's surprising that Olivia Jade has continued to post on Instagram really...
The comments are not kind.
via: InstagramOlivia Jade's Instagram was once flooded with warm messages from her loyal followers, who both envied her and wanted to be her friend at the same time. Now, it's a very different story.
Which is why many were surprised to see her return to Youtube.It seemed that despite knowing she would receive a whole load of backlash, Olivia Jade couldn't stay away from her YouTube channel.
In 2017, Olivia Jade crashed her car whilst vlogging.
via: YouTubeBefore the college admissions scandal, Olivia Jade created a storm of her own when she crashed her car whilst vlogging. The seventeen-year-old was recording herself singing Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" on her cell-phone, whilst driving. Surprise, surprise, she crashed the car. I guess it's clear Olivia Jade is addicted to her social media presence.
It seems some of Olivia Jade's fans were missing her.

Some people were waiting for an apology.An apology that it seemed Olivia Jade was not going to give. Although to be fair, she does say at the beginning of the video that she isn't allowed to discuss the case for legal reasons.
People were not prepared to watch Olivia Jade play the victim.

Those that dislike Olivia Jade are trying to work out why she's been forgiven...They predict it's because she is by no means affected by the college admissions scandal. However, I believe there is another reason Olivia Jade's channel has regained popularity...
People were always laughing at her, not with her.
