Squeaky clean and wholesome Aunt Becky is getting roasted by Twitter today. The alleged involvement of actress Lori Loughlin, who has played the Full House character since 1988, in a college admissions scandal has fans coming for the fictional character.
Loughlin, along with actress Felicity Huffman and about 50 other super wealthy parents, has been charged in a nationwide college entrance and recruitment scheme. The scandal is that these parents paid substantial bribes to admissions officers and varsity coaches to get their children admitted to schools under the pretense these children were athletic recruits. NBC News has reported the bribery scheme has been going on for over a decade.
It is a very serious matter. Everyone involved, including the Fuller House star, have been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. The serious nature thought did not stop social media from going crazy roasting Aunt Becky. The jokes were nonstop with memes of the famous girl next door character and perfect mother all over Twitter.

Twitter has become one big joke involving Aunt Becky, and the news hasn’t even been public that long. The late-night talk show hosts haven’t had their say yet, so fans should tune in tonight because there will no doubt be some hilarious one lines at Loughlin’s expense.

Aunt Becky is trending on social media thanks to Lori Loughlin’s alleged involvement in a college entrance bribery scheme. Fuller House is ending with Season 5, and so far the creators have kept mum on the serious charges against the actress.
Will the scandal affect the future of Aunt Becky on the final season? Could the show decide to distance itself from one of the stars who made it such a hit? Only time will tell, but there are bound to be implications on Loughlin’s career.
