#FreeAuntBecky started trending today after Lori Laughlin, aka Aunt Becky from Full House, was arrested for her involvement in a massive college admissions scandal. She and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of paying bribes totaling $500,000 dollars to get their two kids into school as recruits for the crew team. They were among 40 other people, including actress Felicity Huffman, caught in similar scandals.

The scam involved parents paying for their kids to be able to cheat on their SAT and ACT exams. They would also bribe college administrators and coaches to recruit their children as athletes.

According to the indictment, Huffman and her husband, William H. Macy, were told that her daughter would be able to take the SAT in a controlled testing center where they would arrange for a special proctor to administer the test and then correct the answers later on. This was done without their daughter's knowledge.

Update: Laughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade, was on a school official's yacht when news of the scandal broke.
