“Full House” actress Lori Loughlin was sentenced to two months in federal prison for her involvement in the high-profile college admissions cheating scandal and Black Twitter is back at it with the jokes and memes.

Back in 2019, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were each charged with one count of conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery. Additionally, they couple was hit with charges of money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud.

The pair was accused of paying $500,000 to Rick Singer and Key Worldwide Foundation to lie about their daughters’ involvement on the University of Southern California crew team. Neither of their daughters have ever participated in that sport.

Along with her sentence, Loughlin will also pay a $150,000 fine and complete 150 hours of community service.

Black Twitter did not miss an opportunity to let Aunt Becky have it. They also called out the injustices in the system with cases that were similar to hers. Twitter user @notcapnamerica tweeted, “Aunt Becky was sentenced to 60 days in prison. I doubt she’ll serve more than a few weeks at most. I’d get more getting picked up for a dime bag.”

“Crystal Mason, a Black mother of three, is currently serving five years in prison because she cast a vote in Texas in 2016 without knowing those with a prior felony are ineligible,” @cmclymer tweeted. “Lori Loughlin just got two months for intentionally conspiring to commit wire and mail fraud.”

Social media user @wiley207 tweeted, “Given that Lori Loughlin is going to prison, I think Aunt Becky may be starring in the next ‘Full House’ follow-up series...”

“Reminder that a black woman was sentenced to three years in prison for using her ex’s address to enroll her kids in a better school district,” wrote @Magzdilla2early. “Aunt Becky here will probably get house arrest for like a week.”
