Actress Oliva Munn slammed fellow actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman in their alleged involvement in the widespread college admissions scandal.

Munn, who starred in “Oceans 8,” lambasted the pair on Twitter. Both Huffman and Loughlin are accused of giving thousands of dollars to try and get their children into top-level colleges.

“What these parents did wasn’t for love, it was for fancy diplomas,” Munn said. “Love would’ve made you spend that money on tutors to make your kids smarter, giving them an actual education.”

Munn said several days ago that the children of parents who cheat don’t come out of school with high ambitions in life.

“The irony will be that these parents spent all this money to hustle into top universities and are now in the middle of this [expletive] show just to find out in a few years that their kids only have dreams of being an influencer,” she tweeted.

Loughlin’s 19-year-old daughter, Oliva Jade Giannulli, has been described as just that: A social media influencer. Giannulli has a large following on Instagram and YouTube.

“I went to Harvard to be an Instagrammer. #ad #abs #fittea #waisttrainer #fitnessgoals #matchamornings #keto #lchf #superfoodmuffins,” Munn tweeted.

Loughlin, who starred in “Full House” and “Fuller House,” and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, who founded the Mossimo brand, both respectively posted $1 million in bond. They are accused of paying $500,000 to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as crew recruits when the girls never rowed.

Huffman, of “Desperate Housewives” fame, was released on $250,000 bond after she allegedly paid $15,000 to get her daughter into college by taking a rigged entrance exam.

In all, 50 people were charged in the nationwide scam to get children into top-level schools like Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, USC, UCLA, and the University of Texas.

The Department of Justice revealed the indictments earlier in the week, dubbing the case “Operation Varsity Blues.”

Olvia Jad had recently partnered with Sephora but on March 14, the firm said it is cutting ties with her and has pulled her products from its website, NBC News reported.

The six-color Olivia Jade x Sephora Collection Bronze & Illuminate Palette, which costs $28, is not available on Sephora’s website any longer, according to NBC. The product was released in December 2018.

“After careful review of recent developments, we have made the decision to end the Sephora Collection partnership with Olivia Jade, effective immediately,” Sephora told NBC News.

“Dozens of individuals involved in a nationwide conspiracy that facilitated cheating on college entrance exams and the admission of students to elite universities as purported athletic recruits were arrested by federal agents in multiple states this morning and charged in federal court in Boston,” a DOJ news release said of the case.
