Two days ago Olivia Jade Giannulli was living a pretty charmed life. She was attending USC, partying in the Bahamas on the yacht of a member of the board of trustees and building a brand as a social media influencer. Then the whole world found out she was too dumb and untalented to get into college on her own so her parents turned her into a fake rowing champion to get her fake recruited by the USC crew team and she’s basically become the poster girl for white privilege.
Here’s what TMZ said she was doing when the news broke.
We’ve learned 19-year-old Olivia was on Rick Caruso’s yacht in the Bahamas. Caruso’s daughter, Gianna, Olivia and several other friends were spending spring break in the area.
Gianna and Olivia have been friends for quite some time, occasionally posting photos of them together on social media.
Caruso, a billionaire who has major real estate holdings including The Grove in L.A., tells TMZ, “My daughter and a group of students left for spring break prior to the government’s announcement yesterday. Once we became aware of the investigation, the young woman decided it would be in her best interests to return home.” Olivia is off the yacht.
It’s good to have members of the crew team on your yacht in case something goes wrong, I guess. She is a world-class coxswain according to her application. Oh, right.
While all that was going on, this video surfaced from last year of Olivia Jade talking about going to college and saying she doesn’t know how much she’s going to go and that she doesn’t really care about school.
Awesome. I’d like to say this is going to end her career as an influencer, but if being a vapid, spoiled white person was disqualifying, there wouldn’t be any social media influencers to begin with.
