Lori Loughlin Fired from 'Fuller House' Following College Admission Scandal
She's also been axed by the Hallmark Channel
The actress, best known for her role as Aunt Becky on Full House, has now been let go from that show's Netflix reboot Fuller House. As TMZ reports, she is not slated to appear in the upcoming fifth season.
Hallmark has also severed ties with Loughlin, removing the actress from her starring roles on When Calls the Heart and Garage Sale Mystery. The former will not be cancelled, but the network has pulled this week's March 17 episode from the air while they evaluate "all creative options."

Furthermore, Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade has also lost out a series of commercial partnerships, as Sephora, Princess Polly and Tresemme have all dropped the University of Southern California student from their rosters.
Loughlin has since disabled her Instagram account, while Olivia Jade has disabled the comments on hers.
Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have been charged with one count of mail fraud and have been accused of paying $500,000 USD to have their two daughters accepted into the USC on the crew team, despite neither of them having any rowing experience.
Loughlin appeared in federal court on Wednesday (March 13) and was released on $1 million USD bond ahead of a full trial.
