Must-See Celebrity Instagram Posts of the Week

Jim Carrey, Selma Blair and David Foster also mock the scandal on social media.

We're a week into college admissions scam headlines and, thanks to the involvement of Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, it's still the biggest topic in Hollywood.

The latest star to chime in on all the action was Julia Roberts, who was asked about the situation while doing international press for "Ben Is Back," in which she plays mother to a son struggling with addiction.

"To bring the college situation into the mix, that to me is so sad because I feel -- from an outsider -- that it says a little bit 'I don't have enough faith in you," she said. "I feel that, in this story, this mother is trying to say, 'I have so much faith in you, I have both of our faiths until you can find the faith in yourself again.'"

Loughlin and Huffman were among 50 suspects who allegedly paid a collective total of $25 million to guarantee admission of their offspring into elite schools. Loughlin and her husband allegedly paid $500k to have their daughters look like recruits for USC's crew team, despite never participating in the sport, while Huffman is accused of dropping $15k on a scheme involving college entrance exams.

The scandal has provoked outrage and plenty of mocking on social media, with new tweets and posts coming in every day. On Monday, Jim Carrey joined the sea of stars chiming in, as he shared another of his headline-grabbing caricatures on Twitter.

Selma Blair poked fun at the whole mess on Sunday, following the lead of some involved in this scandal -- who are alleged to have Photoshopped their kids' faces onto the bodies of athletes -- by editing her own child into a picture of a rowing team. Her photo, however, probably wouldn't be fooling any admissions advisors.

Also joking about the scandal was mega music producer David Foster, who told daughter Erin Foster that he'd probably be locked up too if she had actually wanted to pursue higher eduction.

Thanks for the confidence, Dad.

Other new stars chiming in on the two actresses' alleged dirty deeds were Sherri Shepherd -- who told TMZ it reeked of "white privilege" -- and John Legend -- who said it speaks to a bigger issue of the education system being "rigged for wealthy people for a long time."
