More stars react
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has joined other celebrities commenting on the nationwide scam. Speaking on The Van Jones Show, the mother of four said:
If my kids couldn’t get into a school, I would never want to use privilege to try to force them into a situation that they wouldn’t thrive in anyway.

My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!

Award-winning actress, Julia Roberts commenting on the scandal told ITV:
That to me is so sad because I feel, from an outsider, that it says a little bit, ‘I don’t have enough faith in you. My husband, Danny Moder and I are very aligned on that front.
