Acceptance into a prestigious institution of higher learning is something to be celebrated, as Dr. Dre did last week when he announced his daughter, Truly Young, was accepted into USC. However, the celebratory post went left real quick when the legendary hip hop producer was called out for his caption, which seemingly threw shade at Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman.
“My daughter got accepted in USC all on her own. No jail time!!!” he wrote.
The backlash didn’t come from the shade though; it came from the contradiction fans believe Dre displayed with his caption, five years after his own donation to USC. Back in 2013, he and his longtime partner, Jimmy lovine contributed $70 million to USC for the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation.
Many felt it was misleading for Dre to claim his daughter got into the school on her own because of Dre’s previous donation. One person wrote, “All on her own? These schools know which students have rich/famous parents. I’m sure they knew about your donation. Why would they turn down a kid who’s dad donated $70 million?”
Dre’s daughter, Truly, also took to her own Instagram with excitement over her big achievement, posting, “All my hard work paid off. I’m going to film school. I’m really just the happiest girl in the world.” Her posts have also since been deleted.
