Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin become Twitter joke amid college admissions scandal

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin became immediate jokes on social media after they were shockingly busted in a college admissions cheating scandal on Tuesday.

Huffman, famous for her role on the long-running ABC series “Desperate Housewives,” and Loughlin, best-known for her role as the angelic Aunt Becky on “Full House,” have both enjoyed squeaky-clean reputations in Hollywood, so Twitter had some major fun with its schadenfreude upon witnessing the stars’ falls from grace.

“If I’m Aunt Becky, I try to pin the whole thing on Kimmy Gibbler. Involve the Katsopolis Crime Syndicate. Get it done,” joked one Twitter user.

“Aunt Becky is involved in a college sports scandal uncovered by the FBI. Don’t ever let anyone tell you college sports aren’t the greatest, dumbest sports,” wrote another.

Comedian Billy Eichner, meanwhile, joked on Twitter, “TERI HATCHER GOT ME INTO BROWN. JUDITH LIGHT GOT ME WAIT LISTED AT TUFTS,” leading to a number of fans chiming in.

Another couldn’t help but make light of how 56-year-old Huffman’s husband, William H. Macy, was being referred to in stories.

“William H. Macy being identified solely as Felicity Huffman’s husband in this college admissions scam story is… feminism? Misogyny?,” writer Louis Peitzman tweeted.

Others poked fun at how Huffman’s line of mugs, one of which ironically has “good enough mom” written on it (available for just $4 now), happen to be deeply discounted at the time the news broke.

“In Felicity Huffman’s defense- she’s been giving us hints via her line of mugs all along!! ” tweeted another fan.

Loughlin, 54, and her husband allegedly “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC,” court documents said.

Huffman and her husband allegedly made a “purported charitable contribution” of $15,000 in order to weasel her eldest daughter into school, according to court papers cited by ABC. They also allegedly made similar arrangements for their younger daughter, but ultimately backed out.
