When it comes to the college admissions cheating scandal, this week model turned entrepreneur Kimora Lee Simmons had some choice words for actress Lori Loughlin.

According to The Daily Mail, Thursday, while celebrating her daughter Aoki Lee’s acceptance into Harvard University at the tender age of 16, Simmons could not help herself from taking thinly veiled jabs at Loughlin, who is accused of providing false information to help her daughters’ get accepted into USC.

“I’m so excited that Aoki got in Harvard… She really did it on her own merit and we’re really so proud because Aoki can’t row or anything like that,” Simmons said tearfully in the since deleted post although we were able to find a copy (see below.)

Fans quickly gleamed that her statements about her child not being able to row was in reference to Loughlin allegedly faking her children’s way into college by having them pose as recruits for the USC crew team.

“There was really no hope for us in that area,” she continued. “I’m just so proud that you did it on your own.”

She also posted another (less shady) video on her social media that captures her daughter crying at the computer as she read her Harvard acceptance e-mail, which stated once again: “She really did it on her own merit and we’re really so proud because Aoki can’t row or anything like that.”

However, the caption was then changed to, “Yaaayyyyy @aokileesimmons!! She’s on her way to #Harvard!! We are sooo super proud of YOU!! Such hard work and only 16! You did it! It took years of super dedication and lots of tears! But HERE YOU ARE!!! GO GIRL!!! Enjoy the journey! We are excited to see the great things you will do! Sorry I’m one of those SUPERLOUD MAMAS! She also got into Dartmouth, Vassar, Barnard etc! Woooo! #BeautyAndBrains!”
