Olivia Jade‘s “please forgive me” tour is off to a rocky start with the “ungrateful privileged brat” being torn to pieces after her Red Table Talk appearance.
Earlier this week, Olivia decided to break her silence and speak for the first time about her family’s role in the college admission bribery scandal that rocked 2019. Her parents, actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are currently serving prison sentences for paying $500,000 in bribes to get Olivia into the University of Southern California.
So you mean to tell me that your parents sacrificed their freedom & gave you every privilege money can buy & you haven’t even spoken to them since they’ve been in jail for crimes they committed for you?🤔 Talk about an ungrateful privileged brat smh 🤦🏾♀️ #RedTableTalk #OliviaJade pic.twitter.com/kioKBrWrAE

Olivia decided the first step to repair her image and get back those lucrative endorsement deals was to call up Jada Pinkett-Smith, Willow Smith, and Adrienne “Gam” Banfield-Jones. She called up the ladies and asked to appear on the Facebook show. Gam admitted she fought hard against Olivia being a guest on the program.
Gam said, ” I fought it tooth and nail. I just found it really ironic that she chose three black women to reach out to for her redemption story. I feel like here we are, white women, calling up black women for support when we don’t get the same from them. It’s bothersome to me on so many levels. Her being here is the epitome of white privilege to me.”

Olivia was grilled by Jada, Gam, and Willow about the scandal. She admitted to being an entitled rich kid but claimed she didn’t know any better. The entire show she kept saying she was in a bubble and had no way to actually know what was going on in the real world.
The Instagram influencer pouted while apologizing for doing a bad thing. She said she didn’t believe the whole scandal should prevent her from continuing to prosper in life.
Twitter wasn’t impressed with Olivia’s pleas. One wrote, “So you mean to tell me that your parents sacrificed their freedom & gave you every privilege money can buy & you haven’t even spoken to them since they’ve been in jail for crimes they committed for you?Thinking face Talk about an ungrateful privileged brat smh Woman facepalming #RedTableTalk #OliviaJade.”
Another said, “live footage of me watching #OliviaJade on #redtabletalk knowing damn well nothing this privileged rich girl says will change my opinion on the situation…..” with a gif of a person waving their hand.
“Does anyone really care about this story of white privilege, Jada? #OliviaJade participated in this scam & got away with it & her parents got a slap on the wrist. I think of the thousands of Black people in prison for things they either didn’t even do or far less than this,” commented another.
“I find it ironic that she chose three black women to reach out to for her redemption story”
“It’s not our responsibility to raise her consciousness” 🗣
Adrienne Banfield-Jones is everything and you can’t tell me otherwise 🙌🏾 #RedTableTalk #oliviajade pic.twitter.com/AKvn5Vjp42

People even started ripping on Lori Loughlin‘s parenting skills. “How terrible a mother was Lori Loughlin if Olivia Jade Nauseated face turned out to be the kind of brat to drop out of school, join a college admission fraud scheme, then throw her mother under the bus and lie on national television to save face – while still living off her parents money???,” asked one person.
“i saw olivia jade’s interview about the whole college admissions scandal, nothing changed my opinion that shes still a spoiled brat,” wrote one person after watching the chat.
