An Old ‘Back To School’ Tweet From Felicity Huffman Has Us Cringing So Hard

This seems like the world’s most intense example of “too soon.”

On Tuesday March 12th, 2019, a major story broke that implicated 50 people in a $25 million college entrance exam cheating scheme.  Among the people on this list? Actresses Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky from Full House) and Felicity Huffman.

The name of the investigation was “Operation Varsity Blues.” Yes, like the movie.

What exactly happened during this scheme?

Well, according to NBC News:

“[Operation Varsity Blues] uncovered a network of wealthy parents who paid thousands of dollars to a California man who boosted their children’s chances of gaining entrance into elite colleges, such as Yale and Stanford, by paying people to take tests for their children, bribing test administrators to allow that to happen, and bribing college coaches to identify the applicants as athletes.”

Yiiiiiikes.

Thanks to the internet, in which literally nothing ever dies, an old Felicity Huffman tweet is REALLY comin’ back to haunt her.

People have been MERCILESS.

According to the FBI, some parents spent between $200,000 and $6.5 million to guarantee their kids admission to the school of their choice.

William Rick Singer, who received most of that money, pleaded guilty Tuesday afternoon to charges of racketeering conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of justice.

Huffman and  husband actor William H. Macy paid $15,000 to get one of their daughters unlimited time for her SAT test, prosecutors say.

Huffman also explored having somebody else take her second child’s test.

“I just didn’t know if it’d be odd for [the tutor] if we go, ‘Oh, she did this in — in March 9, but she did so much better in May,'” Huffman said in a recorded February 19th phone call. “I don’t know if that’d be like — if [the tutor] would be like, ‘Wow.'”

The investigation is not concluded, and as more names come into play, we will see if any other prolific actors/actresses will be charged.

In the meantime, enjoy Felicity Huffman dragging herself.
