Actress Lori Loughlin was all smiles ahead of her court appearance in connection to the $25 million college-admissions scandal in Boston on Wednesday.
The “Fuller House” actress greeted fans after touching down at Boston Logan International Airport on Tuesday and signed autographs for her supporters.
On Wednesday Loughlin, who is one of dozens of parents accused of paying bribes of up to $6.5 million to get their children into top universities, waved to the press and fans outside federal court in Boston.
People on social media called Loughlin out for her apparently jovial attitude, with some describing her response to criminal charges as “iconic,” and others saying she acted inappropriately.
Loughlin and her husband, the fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying the scheme’s alleged ringleader, William “Rick” Singer, $500,000 to guarantee their daughters’ admissions into the University of Southern California, according to the criminal complaint.
Loughlin and Giannulli remain free on bail and are two of 50 people charged with taking part in the scheme.
