Sofia Richie Defends Her Support of Olivia Jade After Her Red Table Talk Interview

Sofia Richie is sticking by Olivia Jade.

The 22-year-old model and influencer shared her support for Olivia, who gave her first interview since her parents, Lori Loughlin and Massimo Giannulli, were charged in the college admissions scandal earlier this year.

Olivia joined Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Jada‘s mom, Adrienne Banfield-Norris, and opened up about what was going through her mind, her reaction to the case and her parents going to jail.

“Yes girl!!😍😍 Cant wait for what’s ahead,” Sofia commented on Olivia‘s Instagram page, after she posted about the interview.

Moments later, one Instagram user criticized her remark and support, writing, “white privilege supporting white privilege.”

Sofia clapped back to the commenter in a very polite way.

While the situation has been difficult, Olivia said she recognizes that the family “messed up.”

During her interview with the mother-daughter-grandmother team, Olivia shared that she’s not “trying to victimize myself. I don’t want pity — I don’t deserve pity. We messed up. I just want a second chance to be like, ‘I recognize I messed up.’ I never got to say, ‘I’m really sorry that this happened,’ or ‘I really own that this was a big mess-up on everybody’s part,’ but I think everybody feels that way in my family right now.”

Olivia delivered more shocking moments about the scandal in her interview. See them all here…
