About two years after her parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli – along with more than 50 people – were indicted for their involvement in the college admissions program in March 2019, Olivia Jade Giannulli reached out to TikTok for advice she had about the Handel had received with being “publicly ashamed”.
Olivia Jade said in her TikTok, which she published on Friday: “A very inspiring woman once told me – we talked about being public and being publicly embarrassed.”
“I said, ‘Well, my situation isn’t even comparable, I’m not even going to start comparing it to yours,'” she said.
“She looked at me and said, ‘Olivia, it doesn’t matter if I drown in 60 feet of water and you drown in 30,” Olivia told Jade. “We’re both still drowning. ‘”
“I think about this quote every day because I think it’s so true and that it’s such a big message for our world right now,” she said. “I think we are all very quick to judge. I think we are all very quick to knock people down and I just want people to remember if your feelings hurt or if they apply to you. ” It does not matter. And it doesn’t matter if someone is going through worse. “
Olivia Jade added: “You can have a hard time in this world, but that doesn’t take anything away from anyone, and that shouldn’t take anything away from you. We are all human.”
As with other TikToks that Olivia Jade has posted on the platform since late 2020, many users have posted comments related to the college admission scheme and pointed them out to her privileged position.
One user wrote that Olivia Jade is “drowning in money” and another wrote, “But why drown when you are a professional rower?”
Olivia Jade seemed to nod to the scandal in another TikTok. In a post she shared on March 7, she responded to a comment from a user who asked, “How is collage?” – which should probably be written as “college”. Olivia Jade went on to say in the video that she was working on a “sick scrapbook”.
Some Olivia Jade fans have also read the comment sections on her TikTok videos to endorse her. One user commented on her March 7th video by saying, “Leave it alone, I think she’s getting it now” and another wrote, “You really need to go ahead, it’s been years … they apologized. “
Olivia Jade has returned to create content on social media
Olivia Jade, who had a successful career as a YouTube creator and once had a brand partnership with Sephora, hit the headlines in 2019 when news broke that her parents, Loughlin and Giannulli, were participating in William “Rick” Singer’s college admissions program.
As part of the program, Loughlin and Giannulli paid $ 500,000 to admit Olivia Jade and her sister Isabella to the University of Southern California under the guise of being recruits to the crew team.
The program was recently revised into a documentary titled “Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal,” which premiered
earlier in March.

Olivia Jade lost her partnership with Sephora amid the scandal and remained silent on social media until December 2019 when she returned with a YouTube video called “hi again” and a video from the same month describing her “everyday routine”.
After Loughlin was released from her two-month prison sentence in December 2020, Olivia Jade appeared on the “Red Table Talk” to discuss the scandal.
After more than a year in January 2021, she posted her first YouTube video and has since shared a handful of other videos – from a tour of her new apartment to what she eats in a day.
In her latest video, she wrote in the description that she was donating the money she made with Google AdSense to a charity that she worked with, even though she did not name the organization.
Mossimo Giannulli is currently serving his five-month prison sentence. In January, a judge denied his motion to serve the remainder of the sentence at home.
