Nearly eight months since her last YouTube video, Olivia Jade has made her return.
In those eight months, both of her parents, Lori Laughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, were arrested in the high-profile college admissions scandal case. The YouTube star was under fire for her alleged involvement in the scandal and for her seeming lack of remorse.
You bet there is a mixed response from the celebrity's die-hard fans, who are excited to see her back on the platform, and countless critics. In a two-minute-long video, Jade explains she misses filming and posting on her channel and that she will return. But she did not address the scandal other than to tell her followers that she can't legally discuss it, even though she wants to.
After the scandal, which involved cheating and bribery to get students like Jade into competitive schools, the young social media star lost her Sephora sponsorship and faced criticism. And rightfully so. Now it seems she's trying to put it all behind her.
Apparently, the social media star is going to try to start making videos again.
Jade became popular mainly through her parents' influence. Her mom, Lori Laughlin, famously played Aunt Becky on Full House. Plus, she made appearances in other popular videos from famous YouTube stars like David Dobrik's vlogs.
Jade made her weekly vlogs that followed her makeup routines and daily life. Now she wants to get back to it because she misses her followers and making videos.
