The Internet is blowing up with snarky remarks as people connect Lori Loughlin's Full House character - Aunt Becky - with the breaking news of her alleged involvement in a massive college admissions cheating scandal. She was taken into custody and released on $250,000 bail.
As Hallmark Channel plots a future without the star of its wholesome When Calls the Heart drama and Garage Sale Mystery TV-movie series, sources tell TVLine that there are now no plans for the embattled Loughlin to reprise her role as Aunt Becky during Fuller House's fifth and final season, which has yet to start production and will premiere on Netflix this fall.
In the episode, Becky Katsopolis (aka "Aunt Becky", played by Loughlin) is mortified to find out that her husband, Jesse (John Stamos), has lied on their toddler twins' applications to a coveted preschool. Jesse lies about the twins' academic abilities to try to get them in.
The 1993 episode, titled "Be True to Your Pre-School", had a happy ending - neither parent went to jail or faced media scrutiny for just "doing what's best" for their kids. However, Loughlin was on location in Canada at the time.
This next meme references a specific clip from Full House when Uncle Jesse looks at SAT test answers in DJ Tanner's class.
