Olivia Jade Giannulli is having a rough week — the revelation that her famous parents (actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli) paid $500,000 to have her and her older sister Isabella accepted to USC as crew team recruits (though neither rows) has put a serious cramp in the 19-year-old’s influencer style.
The scandal (which, to make matters more ridiculous, broke while Giannulli was allegedly partying on a yacht owned by the USC Board of Trustees chair), has created a mess of epic proportions in Olivia’s Instagram comments section. Though she turned off comments in the first three photos on her feed, the rest of her posts are open season, boasting feedback that ranges from typical troll fare (“LIAR, CHEAT, NO HUMAN SOUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”) to more, er, on the nose (“Entitled kid and criminal parents”).
At this time, several of Olivia’s key sponsors and collaborators have dropped her, including Sephora, Tresemme, Lulus, and HP (with whom she worked alongside Loughlin). But Giannulli has several other big name partners that have yet to publicly distance themselves from the vlogger, including Smile Direct Club, Amazon Prime Student, Dolce & Gabbana Beauty, Conair, Boohoo, Philosophy, Smashbox, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Calvin Klein, Amazon Fashion, and Neutrogena.
