Dr. Dre celebrated his daughter’s acceptance into the University of Southern California with a family photo and a bit of shade.
On Saturday, the hip-hop mogul posted a picture on Instagram of himself and daughter Truly Young, 18, proudly displaying her acceptance letter and an “Experience USC” pamphlet from the school.
“My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own,” the Still D.R.E. rapper captioned his post.
“No jail time!!!” he added, referring to the wealthy parents — including actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman — who were arrested earlier this month for their alleged involvement in the national college admissions bribery scandal.
The Hollywood stars were among 50 high-profile individuals charged in the scheme that involved changing college entrance test results, hiring proctors to take exams for children and superimposing their kids’ faces onto pictures of real student athletes, to guarantee college admission through athletics programs.
While Dr. Dre, real name Andre Young, said Truly went about things the right way, he forgot to mention he made a sizable donation to USC a few years back.
It didn’t take long for online sleuths to call the former N.W.A member out.
On Sunday, several people took to Twitter to share the link to a USC press release announcing Dr. Dre and fellow music mogul Jimmy Iovine donated $70 million to the school in 2013, establishling the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation.
After facing intense backlash, and being reminded that he has his name on a building at USC, Dr. Dre deleted his IG post.
In 2008, the Compton native and Iovine co-founded Beats Electronics. They sold it to Apple for $3 billion in 2014.
