AceShowbiz - The media has been dominated by shocking college admissions scam involving Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli among others. Following Giannulli's arrest on Tuesday, March 12, many have expressed their criticism to them, and Meghan McCain was one of the critics.
"The View" co-host took to her Twitter account to slam the famed fashion designer, who was among the 50 people indicted by federal authorities in Boston, Massachusetts as part of the U.S.-wide scheme. "To Aunt Becky's husband who talked s**t about ASU," she begun writing, referring to Loughin's role as Aunt Becky on "Full House".
"The @McCainInstitute for International Leadership does incredible work w/ students in cooperation with ASU and I guarantee those students involved will go on to do great things in the world and didn't have to lie to get there...," she went on tweeting.

By "talking s**t," McCain was referring to the email Giannulli allegedly wrote to William Rick Singer back in 2016. Singer was said to be the mastermind behind one of the largest college admissions scams to ever hit the U.S.
"We just met with [our older daughter's] college counselor this am," the email allegedly read. "I'd like to maybe sit with you after your session with the girls as I have some concerns and want to fully understand the game plan and make sure we have a roadmap for success as it relates to [our daughter] and getting her into a school other than ASU!"
In addition to Giannulli, Loughlin and Felicity Huffman were arrested on fraud charges over the scandal. TMZ reported that Huffman, who has two daughters with husband William H. Macy, is in custody and is expected to be released on a signature bond, which allows her to walk free on the condition that she appears in court at a later date.
Prosecutors claim she paid $15,000 to help one of her children score high on an entrance exam, while Loughlin, who also has two girls with husband Giannulli, allegedly handed over $500,000 to a school coach to falsely state that their daughters were recruits for the rowing team at University of Southern California.
