AceShowbiz - Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade has seemingly regretted sharing a controversial photo which she posted on Instagram back in August. The picture in question featured the 19-year-old daughter of the actress flipping the bird to the camera.
The social media influencer posted the photo in response to the media's coverage of her parents' alleged involvement in the college admissions scandal. She particularly took aim at some tabloids, mentioning Daily Mail, Star Magazine, People, Perez Hilton and every other media outlet as well as their sources in the caption.
Earlier this month, it was reported that Olivia posted the picture against the advice of Lori's lawyer. "Her lawyer's begged her not to post anything," a source told Us Weekly, "because prosecutors are going to question her about it and show everything to the jury."
Olivia's move to delete the defiant picture comes just days after Felicity Huffman was sentenced to 14 days in jail for her part in the nationwide college entrance exam cheating scandal. The "Desperate Housewives" alum previously pleaded guilty to bribing education officials in an effort to secure a top university spot for her eldest daughter.
She accepted the court's decision "without reservation," saying in a statement, "I broke the law. I have admitted that and I pleaded guilty to this crime. There are no excuses or justifications for my actions. Period."
She added, "I would like to apologize again to my daughter, my husband, my family and the educational community for my actions. And I especially want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices supporting their children."
The 56-year-old actress also promised to "try and live a more honest life, serve as a better role model for my daughters and family and continue to contribute my time and energies wherever I am needed."
Meanwhile, Lori and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have pleaded not guilty to two charges of fraud and money laundering. Each charge carries up to 20 years in prison.
