Above, a recent broadcast featuring Olivia Jade from Access Hollywood.
Lori Loughlin’s daughter, Olivia Jade Gianulli, known commonly as simply “Olivia Jade” is once more at the center of public controversy. She recently posted a “white privilege” post that received mass criticism due to her inclusion in the college admissions scandal. Fox News reports the public calls Olivia Jade’s comments “clueless and tone deaf.” Olivia Jade created the post on one of her Instagram stories in what appears to have been a misguided attempt at joining the anti-racism conversation. Olivia Jade is a 20-year-old social media influencer. She is a YouTube personality who, citing Fox, seeks to “rebuild her brand” post the college admission’s scandal. Olivia Jade attempted to take the opportunity to comment on “white privilege” rhetoric following the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis, MN police officer Derek Chauvin.
Private Twitter users rallied together to condemn Olivia Jade’s comments.
“why the f— is Olivia jade posting about George on her ig? SHES THE DEFINITION OF WHITE PRIVLEGE SHE CONTRIBUTED TO IT WILLINGLY…her parents cheated her way into a school and only got 2 months in jail..she is not allowed to speak on the matter holy s— f—her,” said one private user.
Another private Twitter user was the one who highlighted the regarded “clueless and tone deaf” nature of Olivia Jade’s statements. The original user was replying to TMZ and Fox411.
“The college admissions scandal contributes to the sense of outrage felt by many who take to the streets and violently protest systemic entitlement,privilege and discrimination, while sweet lil olivia jade drops make-up tutorials like nothing happened. dumb, clueless and tone deaf,” said the original user, the bitterness of whom could be tasted along with the acrid taste of Olivia Jade’s commentary timing.
That bitterness was echoed with some vehemence by other students on the Twitter platform working toward completing their degrees.
“Shut the f— up, you spoiled fail brat. Your parents are criminals. My parents are hard-working. You’re a spoiled little s***-for-brains. I work for a living. I just earned my masters. That means mommy & daddy didn’t get it for me. F— you,” said one student via Twitter.
PerezHilton.com likewise noted that Olivia Jade’s IG post regarding “white privilege” was “preachy.” PerezHilton.com also made a note of the fact that Olivia Jade has become a poster child figure for what is considered “white privilege.” PerezHilton called out Olivia Jade for quietly “accepting” her parents half-a-million dollar scheme to fraud her and her sister Bella’s way into UCLA as members of the rowing team. The outlet even accused Olivia Jade of potentially being a knowing, willing participant in the scheme.
Publicly, Olivia Jade has stated that her “white privilege” makes her feel “awful.” These comments have been quoted by People Magazine. She likewise stated that she fears for her future after her parents’ scheme went so decidedly southward. This was stated in September 2019, see Vilabin.
