Dancing With the Stars’ fans slam Olivia Jade as she’s called an ‘influencer’ after parents’ college admissions scandal

DANCING With the Stars' fans slammed Olivia Jade for being labeled a "lifestyle influencer" on the season 30 premiere.

The 21-year-old showed off her dance moves after her parents' shocking college admissions scandal.

While Olivia was likely ecstatic to compete during on DWTS on Monday, many viewers slammed the YouTube star after host Tyra Banks introduced her as a "fashion, beauty, and lifestyle influencer."

Fans were quick to take it to social media, as one person wrote: "Olivia, you are best known for your mom paying to get you into college."

Another added: "We all know what you're best known for and it's not that," while one called her a "spoiled brat" and said, "she is not an influencer!"

"Can't believe they let this child on here. Did she pay her way on there, too?" one chimed in.

Olivia- who is the daughter of actress Lori Loughlin, 57, and designer Mossimo Giannulli, 58- has created a fanbase for herself by sharing videos on YouTube over the years.


However, the 21-year-old is likely most recognized for her parents' involvement in the infamous college admissions scandal.

The pair, who tied the knot in 1997, also share daughter Bella, 22.

The couple allegedly paid $500,000 to get their daughters into the University of Southern California.

Lori and Mossimo reportedly faked a photo of their daughters - Olivia and Isabella - rowing to get them admitted as crew recruits, even though neither of them participated in the sport.

The Full House star and her husband pleaded guilty in May 2020 to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud in the admissions scandal.

Lori was released from federal lockup in Dublin, California, in December after two months.

Meanwhile, Mossimo was sentenced to five months in prison and was released from home confinement in April.


Olivia is competing on DWTS with professional dancer Val Chmerkovskiy, 35.

She will be competing against The Bachelor's Matt James, Jojo Siwa, Spice Girl Melanie C, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore and Karate Kid's Martin Kove.

The Office star Melora Hardin, Bling Empire's Christine Chiu and Beverly Hills 90210 alum Brian Austin Green also hit the dance floor on Monday.

Additionally, The Talk cohost Amanda Kloots, basketball player Iman Shumpert, WWE star The Miz, Peloton instructor Cody Rigsby and country singer Jimmie Allen donned their dancing shoes.
