"If she wants to survive, on her first day in jail, she needs to kick the ass of the inmate with the most Emmy nominations," one social media user quipped.
Twitter had a field day when Felicity Huffman reported for prison duty on Tuesday.
The "Desperate Housewives" star surrendered to the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California to begin her two-week stint for her part in the college admissions scandal and people took to social media to air their grievances about the apparent light sentencing of a "privileged" woman.
"That is not enough time!!! She cheated and stole spots for her mediocre, non-achieving children that should have been given to students who actually worked hard and deserved it," wrote one user. Another follower agreed adding, "It pays to be a liberal Hollywood top s--t, you can get away with anything -- 14 days how funny!"
"White Privilege worked for Felicity Huffman & she should NEVER look SAD when black people are charged for LESS & serving RIDICULOUS amounts of time in prison!" a third chimed in.
But many Twitter users took the time to crack jokes about the situation.
"That'll show you Huffman! Don't break the law, or the law will break you! 2 whole weeks," was posted with eye-roll emojis.

Another suggested Huffman take action to make it behind bars. "If she wants to survive, on her first day in jail, she needs to kick the ass of the inmate with the most Emmy nominations!"
And one user created a schedule for Huffman's first day in the slammer: '12pm - #Felicityhuffman enters prison, 12:37pm - She is released for good behavior, 2:30pm - Back home in LA mansion laying by the pool."

"#FelicityHuffman starts her 2 week stint in jail today. I wonder what the title of her rap album will be when she gets out," mused a Twitter fan. Another joined rank by writing, "I'm worried that all we did by putting Felicity Huffman in jail is help her rap career."
Back in March, Huffman was arrested at gunpoint for forking over $15,000 to improve her 19-year-old daughter Sophia's SAT scores.
She was the first parent out of over 30 to be sentenced after they were indicted for paying mastermind William "Rick" Singer to provide various backdoor options for their children to get into elite universities.
In addition to two weeks prison time, Huffman was sentenced to 250 hours of community service and $30,000 in fines -- a full $10,000 more than prosecutors requested. However, the prosecution had demanded a minimum four week sentence.
"I am deeply sorry to the students, schools, and universities, that are impacted by my actions," Huffman said in court before U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani on Friday.
Judge Talwani said the scandal, which has been dubbed Operation Varsity Blues, only highlighted an already existing imbalance in the U.S., where the children of the wealthy have advantages not available to the average American.
"In a system of that sort, in that context, that you took the step of obtaining one more advantage to put your child over theirs," the judge explained before noting she did not take pleasure in sentencing Huffman to prison.

Next up for a Twitter roasting: Lori Loughlin.
The "Full House" star and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were accused of paying $500,000 to pass their daughter Olivia Jade and her older sister Bella off as athletic recruits to the USC crew team, even though neither competitively rowed before. Their court date is set for January 2020.
One Twitter user, however, couldn't wait to dig in. "Props to Felicity Huffman for taking it like a woman. I have way more respect for her than #AuntBecky."
