Olivia Jade has gone from social media star to social media pariah.

And she allegedly blames her famous parents for this downfall.

Jade, of course, is the oldest daughter of actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli.

She has spent the last couple years amassing quite a social media following, with over 1.4 million Instagram followers and close to two million YouTube subscribers.

It’s unclear exactly why anyone cared in the past just what Jade had to say — but it’s very clear now why they’ve turned on her.

Jade and her sister reportedly had their college admissions bought and paid for by their mother and father, both of whom were indicted by the FBI last month on charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud.

According to official documents, Loughlin and Giannulli “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.”

The scandal has received national attention and near universal scorn because it just epitomizes the advantages rich people have in this country.

Rich people who break the rules, yes.

But there are sadly so many of them out there, some of whom work in the White House.

Jade, for her part, appears to have been in on the scam because she posed for photos in a pretend crew team outfit in as part of the deception.

Her parents then used their money to bribe officials at USC, placing Jade on an athletic recruit list (despite her lack of an actual athletic background) that lowered her admission standards.

Despite this apparent knowledge of what was going on, Jade supposedly is irate at her mom and dad for what has become of her reputation.

“[Olivia] was passionate about her career, and now everything she built has imploded before her eyes,” an insider tells Us Weekly. “She feels they ruined everything."

Jade has scarcely said a word since these arrests were made.

But she lost brand deals with TRESemmé and Sephora as a result of her parents’ alleged actions.

And videos such as the one posted here haven’t exactly painted her in a positive light:

“Olivia blames her mom and dad for this scandal and for the downfall of her career," the aforementioned tabloid reports, adding that Jade sees herself as the "victim."

Interesting, right?

Some folks might say that average high schoolers, who possessed a moral compass and did NOT possess the means of someone such as Loughlin and who were passed over for cheaters such as Jade, are the actual victims here.

One woman who thinks this has sued Loughlin and her co-defendants for $500 billion.

While Olivia is technically still enrolled in the University of Southern California, a separate source told Us Weekly she “has withdrawn physically” due to fear of bullying.

Then again, it’s not like she really cared about being a student there.

Per her very own words.

"I don’t really care about school, as you guys all know," Jade once said on video.

“I don’t know how much of school I’m gonna attend," she added. "But I’m gonna go in and talk to my deans and everyone, and hope that I can try and balance it all. But I do want the experience of like game days, partying."

This may have been the worst $500,000 anyone has ever spent on anything.
