Immediately after the news broke, Hewlett-Packard cut ties with both Lori Loughlin and her Instagram-famous daughter, Olivia Jade, releasing a statement that they had removed their previous collaborations from "all their properties".
Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are among dozens of parents accused of securing their children's college admission with bribes and falsified exams. She apparently spoke with the Today show about daughter Isabella's acceptance into college back in 2017.
But Jack Buckingham, a student who says he unknowingly benefited from the scam, is apologizing. Loughlin, who faces a felony charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, is free on $1 million bond.
It's been reported that Loughlin and her husband had paid for their daughters to be "designated as recruits for the crew team" at USC, according to TMZ.
While youngest daughter Olivia Jade is dealing with backlash with her business connections, Isabella Rose was photographed arriving home following her mother's arrest.
USA attorney Andrew Lelling announced that the parents charged in the scam represent "a catalog of wealth and privilege".
According to the complaint, Mossimo Gianulli emailed pictures of his daughters on indoor rowing machines to William "Rick " Singer, the man who has pleaded guilty to orchestrating the massive scam.
Loughlin, best known for her role on Full House (and Netflix's Fuller House revival), on Wednesday turned herself in to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in advance of a court hearing.

We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations. Prosecutors called it the largest such scandal in US history.
Giannulli has also been sponsored by a number of other companies, including TRESemmé, Princess Polly, Smile Direct Club, Amazon Prime Student, Clinique, Lulus, Windsor, Dolce & Gabbana Beauty, Conair, Boohoo and Smashbox Cosmetics.
Olivia Jade makes her own money as an Instagram "influencer" with millions of followers, although she is now being criticized on the social media app for taking college spots away from deserving students who excel at academics and/or athletics.
Giannulli said in one of her vlogs, "I don't know how much of school I'm going to attend, but I'm gonna go in and talk to my deans and everyone, and hope that I can try and balance it all". But it's not surprising since so many people want to believe in someone and are willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.
One individual wrote that Olivia Jade and her family "should be ashamed of themselves", adding, "I will never shop at Sephora again unless you drop this like a hot potato".
The defendants in that case include Singer and accused parents, including "Desperate Housewives" actor Felicity Huffman, Loughlin and Giannulli, and TPG Capital private equity partner William McGlashan Jr., who was sacked by the firm on Thursday.
She was forced to apologize several days later after her viewers slammed her for being "ignorant" and "spoiled".
