While the consequences for the parents involved in the nationwide college entrance scam are still unclear, indicted mom Lori Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade, has already seen repercussions as she's lost multiple brand partnerships in the wake of the scandal.

"We are going to conduct a case-by-case review for current students and graduates that may be connected to the scheme alleged by the government", a USC Media Relations rep told ET on Wednesday.

It was just back in August when Olivia announced her plans to attend college to her almost 2 million YouTube subscribers, where she was criticised for seeming "spoiled" after saying, "I don't know how much of school I'm gonna attend". "That sounds so awful, they didn't make me", she said.

She later apologised for those comments in a separate video.

NBC News was unable to immediately reach either Olivia Jade Giannulli or Lori Laughlin for comment.

Another Twitter user said: "So what I've learned from #CollegeCheatingScandal is that rich kids are so stupid that they can't get into colleges without cheating". "I promise I'd way rather be filming 24/7 than sitting in 6 hours of classes straight but an education is also super important to me so thank u for ur patience and letting me figure out time management", she said.

A successful social media influencer with millions of followers across platforms, Olivia Jade even appears to have leveraged her newfound status as a college student to attract advertisers. "I don't really care about school, as you guys all know".

"Officially a college student!"

"I just love it all", added Isabella, who revealed she was planning to study acting. "I got everything I needed from Amazon with @primestudent and had it all shipped to me in just two-days", the post reads.

Actor Felicity Huffman departs an initial hearing for defendants in a racketeering case involving the allegedly fraudulent admission of children to elite universities, at the U.S. federal courthouse in downtown Los Angeles, California, U.S., March 12, 2019.

"I'd like to maybe sit with you after your session with the girls as I have some concerns and want to fully understand the game plan and make sure we have a roadmap for success as it related to [our daughter] and getting her into a school other than ASU [Arizona State University]!". Singer bribed those test administrators, prosecutors said.

Georgetown University said it was "deeply disappointed" to learn former tennis coach Gordon Ernst is charged in the scheme but said Ernst "has not coached our tennis team since December 2017, following an internal investigation that found he had violated University rules concerning admissions".

Will the scandal impact Olivia Jade's endorsement deals?

"HP worked with Lori Loughlin and Olivia Jade in 2017 for a one-time product campaign", HP said in a statement.
