‘Fresh Prince’ star Janet Hubert rips Lori Loughlin’s prison release


“Fresh #Prince of #Bel-Air” star #Janet #Hubert is taking #Lori #Loughlin to task for her involvement in the national college admissions scandal.

A spokesperson at the #Federal #Correctional #Institution (FCI) in #Dublin, #Calif., confirmed to #Fox #News on #Monday that the “Full #House” star completed her prison time after serving two months behind bars for her crimes.

#Hubert, 64, reacted to #Loughlin’s release on #Twitter, where she weighed in on the actress’ privilege.

“So when white actresses commit crimes they get new shows, pilots, etc. #Lori #Loughlin …I assume, will get an #Emmy for her time in prison. #Hmmmm…oh to be white, blond, and privileged! #No thanks I would rather be bold, black, and dignified!” #Hubert tweeted along with the hashtag #onlyinamerikkka.

#On #Wednesday, #Hubert went on to point out the discrepancy between #Loughlin’s two-month sentence and the five-year sentence #Connecticut mother #Tanya #McDowell received after pleading guilty to enrolling her son in #Norwalk schools, despite living in #Bridgeport.

“There is a black woman that is serving 5 years for just using a different address to put her child in a better school. #Those who are coming angry for my tweet…I will meet you at the door,” #Hubert tweeted. “SNL used my photo when talking about this school mess, I was NOT amused. #donnottestme.”

#When one user supported #Hubert’s argument, she added: “There are many white parents who are pissed as well. #College is expensive and hard to get in. #We have to start really pushing back. #College should be free anyway.”

#Representatives for #Loughlin did not immediately respond to #Fox #News’ request for comment.

#Loughlin, 56, was handed a two-month term behind bars in #August after she and her fashion designer husband, #Mossimo #Giannulli, pleaded guilty to charges stemming from $500,000 payments to scam mastermind #William “Rick” #Singer to get their daughters, #Olivia #Jade and #Isabella #Giannulli, recruited onto #University of #Southern #California’s crew team. The two had never participated in the sport.

#In their plea agreement, #Loughlin, agreed to serve two months and pay a $150,000 fine along with two years of supervised release and 100 hours of community service. #Giannulli, meanwhile, was ordered to pay a $250,000 fine with two years of supervised release and 250 hours of community service in addition to a five-month prison sentence.

#Earlier this month, #Loughlin’s 21-year-old daughter, #Olivia #Jade, spoke to host #Jada #Pinkett #Smith on the “Red #Table #Talk” about her family’s involvement in the scandal. #During the candid conversation, she addressed her white privilege and why so many people of color were outraged by her family’s actions.

“I understand that just based on my skin color I already had my foot in the door and I was already ahead of everybody else. #Right. I think that 100%. I can recognize that going forward,” she shared.

#She added: “I think that what hasn’t been super public is that there is no justifying or excusing what happened because what happened was wrong. #And I think every single person in my family can be like, ‘That was messed up. #That was a big mistake.’ #But I think what’s so important to me is to learn from the mistake, not to now be shamed and punished and never given a second chance because I’m 21. I feel like I deserve a second chance to redeem myself, to show I’ve grown.”

#While #Loughlin has since reunited with her daughters in #California, #Giannulli continues to serve his five-month prison sentence at a federal facility in #Lompoc, #Calif.
