Dr. Dre and his daughter have removed posts bragging about the latter making it into USC on her own merit that took shots at those embroiled in the college admissions scandal.
Most of us likely start thinking about our children going to college from a very young age. Some parents might have even started saving for that day before their child is even born. It is a very proud moment and honestly, the more prestigious the school the better, right? That's why Dr. Dre would have been extremely pleased to hear that his daughter Truly Young made it into USC.
The rapper was so proud, in fact, that he took to Instagram to brag about his daughter's accomplishment. Dre wrote "my daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!," in the caption that went along with the pic of him and Truly. The jail time comment was a shot at those mixed up in the recent college admissions scandal.
Do not go looking for that post, or a similar one made by Truly, as they have since been removed. That's because Dre likely realized very quickly how his comments would undoubtedly backfire. Turns out he and record producer Jimmy Iovine donated a whopping $70 million to USC back in 2013, reports Daily Mail. The two of them even have a building named after them on USC's campus.
As you might imagine, that's not a good look. Plus, as you can see in the photo above, it wasn't something that was kept under wraps either. Although, students at USC might not have been aware of one of the campus building being named after a famous rapper since Dre's real name was used, Andre Young. That being said, how cool would it be to go to lectures and seminars in The Dr. Dre Academy?
Why exactly Dre decided to announce his daughter's accomplishment to the world in the way that he did is mind-boggling. Enough people would have put two and two together and accused Truly of only making it into USC due to her father's donation. By taking a shot at those who were tangled up in a college admissions scandal, of which USC was involved, he effectively shone a big spotlight on the situation.
