TRESemme drops YouTube star over college bribery

By  | 

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Actress Lori Loughlin's daughter has been dropped by another company that advertises on her popular social media accounts as the fallout from a college-admission bribery case continues.

Hair products company TRESemme said in a statement Thursday that it is no longer working with Olivia Jade Giannulli.

Earlier in the day, the cosmetics company Sephora made the same move.

Giannulli, a 19-year-old student at the University of Southern California, had promoted TRESemme products on her social-media accounts, which include a popular YouTube channel. Her parents are among 50 people arrested in a nationwide college bribery scandal.

Prosecutors allege Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli paid $500,000 to have their two daughters labeled as crew-team recruits at USC, even though neither is a rower.

An attorney representing her parents didn't immediately reply to a request for comment.
