John Stamos 'Liked' A Tweet About Lori Loughlin Going To Jail

And I oop —

While live-tweeting The Little Mermaid Live, John Stamos apparently liked a tweet fully shading Lori Loughlin, his former Full House co-star.

Or did he? Let's all be the judges.

Okay, so, to catch everyone up on this whole college admissions thing.

I'm going to try and simplify this as much as possible, because there's a ton of information out there and all of it is vaguely confusing.

So, let's start with earlier this year.

In March, news broke about the college admissions scandal.

The investigation was nicknamed Operation Varsity Blues, because apparently government agencies do have a sense of humor.

Anyway, long story short, a bunch of rich parents tried to pay to get their kids into university.

Among those parents were Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin.

Where Huffman's was pretty cut and dry — pay money, someone cheats for her daughter — Lori's was...honestly, let's just say it. It was dumber.

I'm sorry, Aunt Becky, but photoshopping your kids to look like athletes was dumb af.

They paid a TON of money to cheat for their daughters.

Lori and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli — whose name you probably know because he designed clothing for Target — paid a whopping $500,000 to get their daughters into the University of Southern California.

See, their eldest daughter didn't have the grades to get in.

So they decided that Olivia would be treated as an athlete.

For both daughters, they doctored images of them using rowing machines to make it look like they were rowers. Olivia was then recruited into USC as a rower.

Olivia was not a rower.

Lori may be facing jail time now.

Extra charges of bribery being piled on top now mean she could spend up to 40 years in jail.

Bribery charges are no joke, kids. Do not photoshop pictures of your children to get them into university.

John Stamos has been very quiet on the situation.


The two played Aunt Becky and Uncle Jesse in the original show, and reprised their roles for Netflix's reboot series, Fuller House.

He's been pretty reluctant to comment on the situation.

And when he does, it's pretty diplomatic.

"I haven't been on the show yet and it hasn't come up, so I'm going to talk to some people about it this week and see what's going on," he told Entertainment Tonight.

He also revealed that they're trying to figure out how to do the show without her.

But they aren't going to announce anything.

"I'm just going to wait a little longer before I talk about it. It's a difficult situation for everyone involved. I don't mean just on our side."

Vanity Fair got a little more out of him.

"I gotta be careful. I want to wait until the trial happens, if it does, or whatever the result is, and then talk about it," he began.

"I talked to her the morning everything hit. I just can’t process it still."

No matter what, though, they're still friends.

"Whatever happened, I’m pretty sure that the punishment is not equal to the crime, if there was a crime."

When asked if they were still friends, he gave an unequivocal "yes."

Fast forward to this week.

John Stamos just finished up a live performance of The Little Mermaid for Disney.

In the show, he played Chef Louis, the chef who tries to cook Sebastian up in that terrifying kitchen scene.

"He" was on Twitter during the performance.

While he was on stage, he was also liking Tweets related to his own performance.

And by he, I mean someone on his social media team, or a member of his family. You know, on account of him not being able Tweet while on live TV.

One of the tweets his account liked was BRUTAL.

"Aunt Becky’s going to jail but @JohnStamos is BACK and crushing it on #LittleMermaidLive," @TheGunzShow wrote.

Well. That one's gotta hurt. I mean, Lori Loughlin deleted all of her social media, but the Internet is forever.

TMZ reached out for comment.

They still haven't heard from John Stamos himself, but reported that a source close to him that the tweet was liked, "on accident."

That checks out, tbh. I doubt he'd publicly shade her like that.
