(Newser) – Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are in serious hot water over the college-admissions scandal, but they're not getting any sympathy from a fellow actress. Though she didn't mention those two by name, Olivia Munn took to task the parents accused of resorting to illegal means to get their kids into top-notch schools, reports People. "What these parents did wasn't for love, it was for fancy diplomas," she tweeted. "Love would've made you spend that money on tutors to make your kids smarter, giving them an actual education."

The Predator star also took some shots that could seen as going in the direction of Loughlin, whose daughter has a big presence on Instagram. “The irony will be that these parents spent all this money to hustle into top universities and are now in the middle of this s--- show just to find out in a few years that their kids only have dreams of being an influencer," she wrote. And Munn's most biting tweet of all mocked the beneficiaries of such influence: "I went to Harvard to be an Instagrammer." (Here are 7 jarring quotes from the affidavit.)
