Felicity Huffman is no longer on social media.
As we reported, the Desperate Housewives star was indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
The thespian and husband William H. Macy (who was not charged for some reason) were accused of making a $15,000 donation to get involved in a college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of their now-18-year-old daughter, Sofia.
The teen reportedly took the SATs in December 2017 and received a 1420, which was a 400 point improvement over her PSAT score. At the test taking center, a proctor allegedly corrected her answers after she turned in the test.
On Friday, the 56-year-old deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts amid the scandal.
On her pages, the acclaimed actress regularly shared inspirational messages such as, “Don’t just go through life, grow through life. What are you creating for yourself today?”
They didn’t age well considering the scandal she’s going through; she’s been getting nonstop roasted on social media ever since.
And it isn’t just random trolls either.
Huffman — along with fellow indicted actress Lori Loughlin — have been ridiculed by several celebs for their alleged involvement in the alleged college admissions scandal.
Lena Dunham wrote:
“All the people involved in this college scam should have gathered their money and started a small elite college where Lori Loughlin teaches a class on smiling”
Patton Oswalt joked:
“Just paid 425k to get my daughter into a Color Me Mine”
Olivia Munn remarked:
“The irony will be that these parents spent all this money to hustle into top universities and are now in the middle of this sh** show just to find out in a few years that their kids only have dreams of being an influencer.”
As we wrote, when Felicity was arrested on Tuesday, seven federal officers reportedly showed up to her Hollywood Hills home with guns drawn. Huffman and her family were asleep when the agents arrived.
When she appeared in court, the judge released her on a $250K signature bond, and required her to surrender her passport.
Her next court appearance is scheduled for March 29 in Boston.
Though her husband, Macy, was not indicted, charging documents state the couple agreed to the plan to help their eldest child. They allegedly discussed using it again for their youngest daughter, Georgia (16), but decided against it.
Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were charged for allegedly paying bribes totaling $500,000 to have both of their daughters — Olivia Jade, 19, and Isabella, 20 — recruited for the University of Southern California crew team, despite not playing the sport.
Loughlin also fled social media after news of the scandal broke.
