As Lori Loughlin appeared in court for her alleged involvement in the college admissions cheating scandal, her longtime Full House costar Bob Saget shared a cryptic post about “lying.”

While Loughlin, 54, and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, made their court appearance on Wednesday in Boston, he tweeted, “So many people are lying these days, maybe they should change the tests in school to ‘false or false.'”

He then deleted the tweet, which came days after he broke his silence about Loughlin’s alleged participation in the scandal.

PEOPLE is out to Saget’s rep.

Last week, TMZ caught up with Saget as he left Avra restaurant in Beverly Hills, California. “You love who you love in your life,” the actor, who has also appeared with Loughlin in the Netflix reboot Fuller House, said on Thursday when asked about the issue.

“I just love who I love. Candace [Cameron Bure] said it really good at the Kids Choice Awards,” he added. “You love who you love.”

“I’m on the team of people that I love,” Saget continued, “but life’s complicated. I don’t like talking about it.”

In a crowded Boston courtroom on Wednesday, Loughlin and fellow actress Felicity Huffman faced the presiding judge for the first time regarding their alleged involvement in the nationwide scam.

Loughlin and Giannulli, 55, appeared first. During their six-minute hearing, they waived their right for a preliminary hearing. They also agreed to several pretrial conditions, including surrendering their passports and no possession of firearms. After the hearing, Loughlin reached over to the next table to shake the hands of the prosecutors.

During Huffman’s three-minute hearing, she agreed to the same pretrial conditions as Loughlin and Giannulli. If any of them need to travel for work or emergencies, they can petition the court to get their passports back.

Loughlin, Giannulli and Huffman have not entered pleas in the cases against them. Another court date for them has not been set.

Loughlin signed autographs and posed for pictures upon her arrival in Boston on Tuesday night. While entering the courthouse on Wednesday morning, she remained upbeat. Wearing a camel-colored wide-legged pantsuit with a gray T-shirt, she smiled and laughed when someone made a joke about the elevator getting stuck. Giannulli was more somber in a navy blue suit and green tie.

Huffman entered the courthouse early, nearly three hours before her hearing was supposed to start. She wore a black blazer, matching pants, a turquoise button-down and accessorized with a cross necklace — all under a black overcoat. Huffman also carried a purse on her arm, and held the hand of a man who appeared to be her lawyer.

Huffman’s husband, William H. Macy, did not attend.

Both women face felony charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud after being arrested in March.

According to federal prosecutors, Loughlin allegedly wanted her daughters to get into the University of Southern California so badly that she and Giannulli paid bribes to falsely classify their daughters as student athletes.

The complaint alleges Loughlin and Giannulli “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.” (Olivia Jade, 19, and Isabella Rose, 20, are not currently listed on the University of Southern California women’s rowing roster. It’s unclear if they were aware of the alleged scheme, and neither has been charged.)

Attorneys for Loughlin and Huffman have not returned PEOPLE’s calls for comment.
