Lori Loughlin‘s daughter, Olivia Jade, has been labeled “stupid” and “ignorant” after posting about her “white privilege” while showing her support for black lives matter. The 20-year-old YouTuber took to social media to share her thoughts on the protests happening all over the world calling for change after the death of George Floyd. But her statement went terribly wrong with followers slamming her for the words she chose to use about being a white person with every opportunity at her fingertips.
Olivia Jade’s parents recently pled guilty for their participation in the college admissions scandal. Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli are accused of dropping $500,000 to college admissions consultant William “Rick” Singer to get their daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as sham recruits for the crew team, even though neither of them ever participated in the sport. So, it didn’t go over well when Olivia Jade decided to insert herself and speak out against white privilege.

“If you see something that doesn’t look right… do something!!!!! THIS NEEDS TO BE CHANGED. FOREVER! And as a person who is born into privilege based on my skin color & financial situation I was not always aware that these issues were still so present. And that makes me feel awful. But that also fuels me,” she wrote.
“Don’t sit there & allow this to continue happening,” she added. “And if someone says something like ‘no one is around that offense’ or ‘it’s a joke’ it should offend ALL of us speak because it’s outright wrong and disgusting that humans talk/treat each other humans THE way we’ve seen.”

Olivia Jade urged others to “USE OUR WHITE PRIVILEGE TO STOP THIS!” Followers immediately lashed out at the star on Twitter. “#OliviaJade uninstall yourself from the internet. You are certainly privileged because of your crooked parents. I am Caucasian to, and your hate comments about white privilege is inciting violence. I am far from ever being treated ‘Privileged’ You are scum!” one person responded. “#OliviaJade no one wants to hear your take on white privilege [sic]. No one,” posted another.
But it didn’t stop there. “SHES THE DEFINITION OF WHITE PRIVILEGE 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,” shared someone. “She needs a reality check! So tone deaf!” expressed someone else.” Olivia Jade has yet to speak out against the backlash following her post. Her famous mother and father are still awaiting their day in court to find out their fate.
