Rob Lowe goes for the jugular in tweet about school cheating scandal

The arrest of actress Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin in a massive college admissions cheating scandal in which they’re alleged to have paid huge sums of money to secure places for their children at top universities is reverberating around Hollywood.

And on Tuesday, Rob Lowe was among the stars who felt the need to comment publicly on the news while defending the achievements of his own college-educated kids.

The former West Wing star, 54, retweeted a post by his youngest son John Owen Lowe and added: ‘Very proud of my honest, hardworking sons.’

John, 24, who graduated from prestigious Stanford University last year, tweeted out a photo Tuesday showing him at his graduation with brother Matthew, 26, and his parents.

His mother is Sheryl Berkoff who married Rob in 1991.

Alongside the photo, John wrote: ‘Still proud of this achievement. Happy for everyone out there who earned their accomplishments…and really sad for those who were never allowed the opportunity.’
