Dr. Dre‘s celebratory stunt came to a screeching halt after folks pulled his card on social media.
The super-producer proudly announced his daughter, Truly Young, had been accepted to the University of Southern California and noted that she did it on her own.
He noted that there will be “no jail time” – which is a jab at Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, who were indicted for paying bribes to get their kids admitted to top universities.
But, fast times slowed up with Dre was called on the carpet for the $70 million donation he and Jimmy Iovine made to the school to create the Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation.
Some argued that the donation was basically a legal bribe that laid the groundwork for Truly’s admission.
She may have confirmed it with an old post on social media where she said her dad was pushing her to apply to USC.
What do you think? Do you consider Dr. Dre’s 2013 donation a bribe or a down payment on securing his daughter’s admission to USC?
