Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade is facing massive backlash after urging people to use their "white privilege" to combat racism.

The YouTube “influencer,” whose parents are going to prison for taking part in a bribery scheme to get their daughter admitted to college, made the controversial comment as thousands of others took to the streets to protest the killing of George Floyd swept.

"We need to support and stand up and speak and USE OUR WHITE PRIVILEGE TO STOP THIS," Jade wrote in a post to her Instagram Stories, per Fox News. "We need to stop complaining about the smallest things because the black community are fearful of dying and being oppressed every single day just on the way they look and how they were born. Time to step up and keep making noise because this cannot continue to happen. It's disgusting."

Jade, whose parents have pleaded guilty to charges in the college admissions scandal, was slammed on social media.

"The college admissions scandal contributes to the sense of outrage felt by many who take to the streets and violently protest systemic entitlement,privilege and discrimination, while sweet lil olivia jade drops make-up tutorials like nothing happened. dumb, clueless and tone deaf," one Twitter user wrote.

"SHES THE DEFINITION OF WHITE PRIVLEGE SHE CONTRIBUTED TO IT WILLINGLY...her parents cheated her way into a school and only got 2 months in jail..she is not allowed to speak on the matter," another expressed.

"Children of celebrities are the most worthless people there are," a third user commented.

Meanwhile, Jade acknowledged her own white privilege and called on others to be proactive in the fight against racism.

"If you see something that doesn't look right… do something!!!!!" she wrote. "THIS NEEDS TO BE CHANGED. FOREVER! And as a person who is born into privilege based on my skin color & financial situation I was not always aware that these issues were still so present. And that makes me feel awful. But that also fuels me."

She added: "Don't sit there & allow this to continue happening," she added. "And if someone says something like 'no one is around that offense' or 'it's a joke' it should offend ALL of us speak because it's outright wrong and disgusting that humans talk/treat each other humans THE way we've seen."
