Lori Loughlin has been caught on camera admitting to the crime for which she just got arrested.
Sort of, that is.
In a newly-surfaced video from 2017, the controversial actress and her teenager daughter, Olivia Jade, are recording footage for the latter's YouTube channel.
In a video titled “TEACHING MY MOM SLANG TERMS OF 2017,” Olivia, who was 17 at the time, tell the Full House star of the phrase, “England is my city," something made famous when fellow YouTuber Nick Crompton sang these words in Jake Paul‘s “It’s Everyday Bro.")
“England is NOT a city,” Loughlin tells her ignorant child in response, to which Olivia replies:
“I know, that’s why it’s so, so, so iconic on YouTube! … Well, it’s not iconic at all, it’s just really dumb.”
This whole conversation is really dumb, but it's also about to become very telling.
Loughlin, who was arrested this week for her role in a nationwide college bribery scandal, then says:
“If you would’ve said, ‘England is my city,’ I would say, ‘Why did I pay all this money for your education?'”
At this joke, he mother-daughter duo laugh and laugh and then laugh some more.
But few people are guffawing over pretty much this exact same thing right now.
Loughlin and her husband were each indicted by the FBI a few days ago because they allegedly paid a $500,000 bribe to pretend Olivia and her sister were high school crew team members.
They were subsequently admitted to the University of Southern California because an employee there listed them as potential athletic recruits, thereby lowering their admissions standards.
Loughlin and actress Felicity Huffman were the two best-known individuals involved in an arrested that netted dozens of wealthy parents, all of whom are accused of lying, cheating and bribing their kids' way into college.
Olivia Jade has since left USC, at which she barely studied, while Loughlin has since lost multiple jobs, including her role as leading lady on Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart.
"We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations,” Crown Media Family Networks said in a statement, adding:
“We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin and have stopped development of all productions that air on the Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin including Garage Sale Mysteries, an independent third party production."
Olivia, for her part, lost her brand deal with Sephora.
“After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately,” a spokesperson for the beauty company has said.
