The fallout from the publicized college admissions scandal continues. The University of Southern California announced Monday evening that repercussions would be dealt out to students involved.
USC made a statement on Monday on Twitter, saying that students whose parents paid for their college admittance were under review. Until the review has been completed, holds have been placed on the accounts of all affected students. This will prevent them from registering for classes or acquiring transcripts.

This is the latest update in the scandal, which involved two prominent celebrities. Lori Loughlin ("Full House") and Felicity Huffman ("Desperate Housewives") were two of the four dozen parents that had bribed their children into college. Because of this, Loughlin is being written off Netflix's "Fuller House" and has been disowned by the Hallmark Channel. Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade, lost her endorsements from Sephora and TRESemmé, which she frequently promoted on her Instagram and YouTube accounts.
