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.
