Last week, we reported that Lori Loughlin of “Full House” and “Fuller House” fame had asked a judge for permission to travel to Mexico on vacation with her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli after they both completed their prison sentences for their respective roles in the college admissions scandal. We then reported that the judge granted Loughlin permission to travel, but this has since blown up in the actress’s face, as she is now being slammed for it.

“White privilege at its best,” one person tweeted, with another adding, “Sounds about white.”

“Nothing makes their day more bright than waking up white,” someone else said, with a fourth person writing, “It must be delightful to commit crimes and then do whatever you would like. Money is just spooky like that.”

“As if we needed one more reminder of the two systems of ‘justice’ in this country: Lori Loughlin and her husband have been allowed to vacation in Mexico,” added another social media user. “What a surprise that wealthy white people with recent felonies and incarceration get a pass to leave the country for vacation.”

Court documents that were obtained by TMZ show that Loughlin and Giannulli asked for the trip in order “to spend time with [their] family.” The documents also said that while Loughlin has completed her required community service, Giannulli is still “actively working on completing” his.

Loughlin and Giannulli pled guilty last year to charges related to them allegedly paying $500,000 in bribe money to have their two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither girl had ever rowed before.

Loughlin served two months in prison for her role in the college admissions scandal, and she was released at the end of December. Her husband served five months behind bars and was released at the end of April.

A source recently said that Loughlin and Giannulli were “beyond relieved” after having served their respective prison sentences.

“Mossimo is, of course, happy to be done with the home confinement,” the source said. “They are both beyond relieved to have completed their prison sentences. Mossimo has to finish his community service, but then he can really move on.”

“Lori is a wonderful wife, mother and friend,” the insider added. “She and Mossimo made huge mistakes. They have taken responsibility for them and just want to start fresh now.”
