Huffman had nearly 600k followers on Instagram.

Her Twitter account shared inspirational messages such as, 'Don't just go through life, grow through life. What are you creating for yourself today?' 

Felicity has been mercilessly ridiculed on social media for her involvement with the college scam where she is claimed to have paid $15,000 - disguised as a charitable donation - to fake 'charity' Key Worldwide Foundation to help her eldest daughter cheat on the SAT. 

In one meme she is seen in an orange jumpsuit alongside Lori Loughlin, who has also been charged.

The title reads Orange Is The New Black - Four Year Plan.

Her bid for laughs: Lena Dunham stated, '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.' 

Kathy Griffin saying this scandal has made Jussie Smollet - who has been arrested for an alleged fake hate crime - happy.

Olivia Munn said, '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.'

The crime: In December 2017 Felicity's daughter Sofia Grace Macy, 18, took her SAT college admission test at a separate testing site instead of taking it at her school - Los Angeles High School of the Arts, it has been claimed; seen in January
