“Lori Loughlin are your attorneys that good or are you just that arrogant?”
Lori Loughlin better hope there are no Twitter users on her jury.
The actress and her husband Mossimo Giannulli pled not guilty to all charges relating to the college admissions scam on Monday morning — and the internet couldn’t quite believe it.
Unlike Felicity Huffman, who pled guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud as well as honest services mail fraud as part of a plea deal, Lori and Mossimo refused and had the extra charges of conspiracy to commit money laundering tacked on as a result, as well as extending their potential prison stay to a maximum of 40 years each.
"Yo, who is advising Lori Loughlin? What in the hell? Even the man who masterminded the whole thing plead guilty," one Twitter user wondered.
"Lori Loughlin are your attorneys that good or are you just that arrogant?" another asked.
"Lori Lori —tapping on her head— this isn’t one of your hallmark series — this is real life with a possibility of prison—when the ‘irs’ is involved your azz is going to prison — ‘they do not play’" a third pointed out.
A fourth opined: "She must believe in the “celebrity defense” which has proven a great defense for many celebrities. She must believe a jury will see an innocent Aunt Becky and not a guilty Lori Loughlin."
Some made the point that Huffman will be happy to bow out and take her rap on the knuckles, and let Loughlin drink up all the media attention: "Felicity Huffman is damn lucky that Lori Loughlin exists!"
Others were scratching their heads for possible escape routes from her increasingly limited options: "Fortunately for Aunt Becky, we live in an age when presidential pardons are dispensed like so much toilet paper. Is it too late for Lori Loughlin to make a contribution to #Trump2020?"
There were a few, though in a very small minority, who correctly pointed out she is innocent until proven guilty.
