Talk about irony and a classic case of “Do as I say, Not as I Do.”
A short clip of Felicity Huffman promoting the cause to “make the change” for girls without access to education has recently rose to the surface.
In case you didn’t know, Huffman was recently charged in the college admissions scandal for spending $15,000 to bribe a test proctor to ensure her daughter’s test scores were up to par so that she could get into a top university.
Huffman sure did her part for the “education inequality cause”…
Check out the clip, which has been circulating on social media, here:
Apparently, the "Desperate Housewives" star recently deleted her social media accounts in the midst of the scandal, perhaps to keep more videos like this one from surfacing. CBS News had the following to say:
Felicity Huffman deleted her social media accounts Friday, just days after she was among 50 people charged in a widespread college admissions scheme. The other high-profile actress charged, Lori Loughlin, removed her accounts Tuesday.
Huffman's parenting website, What the Flicka?, also appeared to be taken down, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Huffman is accused of paying $15,000 — disguised as a tax-deductible charitable contribution — to a foundation operated by William Singer, who in turn, allegedly arranged for a particular proctor to ensure Huffman's daughter scored well. Her husband, actor William H. Macy, is not named in the indictment, but he is repeatedly referred to as Huffman's "spouse."
Huffman was released on $250,000 bond Tuesday.
Just a few weeks before being charged, Huffman had tweeted a "throwback" photo with Macy, calling him her "partner in crime."
Even before she totally removed her presence from social media on Friday, Huffman had deleted at least one more ironic post, which US Magazine reported on Tuesday:
Wiping the slate clean? Felicity Huffman appeared to delete an Instagram post about motherhood struggles amid her alleged involvement in a nationwide college admissions scam.
The 56-year-old actress — who shares daughter Sofia, 18, and Georgia, 16, with husband William H. Macy — opened up about feeling worthy in a Saturday, March 9, post that disappeared from her account on Tuesday, March 12, following her arrest.
“To all the moms out there, you’re all superheroes and you’re all good enough,” the Desperate Housewives alum captioned a photo of a notebook and coffee mug baring the phrase, “Good mom.” The actress, who also shut off all of her Instagram comments, added: “Don’t let anyone tell you differently. Treat yourself today…”
