Celebrities are attacking other celebrities named in the college cheating admissions scandal earlier this week.

Federal prosecutors on Tuesday charged 50 prominent figures including Hollywood actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin in a $25 million scheme to help affluent parents cheat their children's way into elite universities.

Now, in a rare turn of events for Hollywood, stars are slamming other stars.

Actress and model Olivia Munn joined in on the attack online, taking aim at Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade, who has been subjected to an onslaught of criticism in recent days.

Munn noted the irony in the situation, pointing out that the parents who forked out millions in bribes to get their children into top colleges are now finding out "that their kids only have dreams of being an influencer."

She also sarcastically tweeted, "I went to Harvard to be an Instagrammer."

Olivia Jade has cultivated a strong following on social media as she sought to promote various brands but the 19-year-old was forced to disable all comments to her Instagram account amid the controversy due to scathing remarks from fans and followers.

"Girls" creator and star Lena Dunham also weighed in.

"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," Dunham tweeted.

Kelly Ripa , host of "Live With Kelly and Ryan," spoke out about how these rich kids already had an advantage in life. "You look at this and you go, 'If you have the money to afford a tutor, you already have an advantage,'" she said.

Donald Trump Jr. retweeted a 2016 Huffman post where the star asked her followers, "What are your best 'hacks' for the back to school season?" The president's son commented,  "I'm learning some new ones as we speak. Stay tuned."
