Ah, the collage years.
Almost two years after Olivia Jade Giannulli’s parents were responsible for the phrase “college admissions scandal,” the 21-year-old YouTuber is starting to clap back at trolls bringing up the story.
Sunday, Giannulli responded on TikTok to a commenter attempting to get a rise out of her with the typo’d question “How’s collage” by responding, “Thank you for asking. It’s pretty good,” according to Yahoo.
“I actually love collaging,” she continued. “I’m working on this really f–king sick scrapbook that I have to show you guys soon. It’s chef’s kiss, beautiful work I’ve done.”
Giannulli has attempted to return to a semblance of her normal life following the scandal. She’s lobbied to “keep the vibes good” in 2021 and has returned to YouTube and the assorted other social channels of the influencer crowd after nearly a year’s absence.
In May, Giannulli’s mom, “Full House” star Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded guilty to paying $500,000 to snag a place for 21-year-old Olivia Jade and her sister, Isabella Rose Giannulli, 22, at the University of Southern California as rowing crew recruits.
Olivia Jade has embarked on a public mea culpa tour recently, admitting on Jada Pinkett Smith’s “Red Table Talk” in December that, “I never went back [to the University of Southern California]. I was too embarrassed … I shouldn’t have been there in the first place, clearly, so there was no point in me trying to go back.”
Last week, Loughlin was photographed for the first time since leaving the big house in December, doing some volunteer work in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Mossimo remains behind bars with an expected release date of April.
