It was revealed earlier this month that Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were among the 50 parents being investigated for their reported involvement in what is currently being considered the biggest college admission scam and scandal in the history of the United States. Since then, there have been no small amount of crude and snide comments made online — and elsewhere — about the potentially criminal celebrities and their alleged (and well-reported) wrongdoing.
Supposedly cheating their way into the system using their wealth and privilege in order to provide their own children with college admissions into the schools of their choice — regardless of their grades and proper eligibility compared to other students — was considered unethical and immoral by the general public. Not just by fand, but other celebrities. And that includes Dr. Dre. Shortly after he went on social media and proudly announced that his daughter was admitted into college, he took the opportunity to indirectly make fun of Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin by claiming that his daughter made it into the university without the father facing potential jail time. Here's what the rapper and producer wrote on his Instagram.
My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!
The since-deleted social media message, recounted by E! News, featured a picture of Dr. Dre and his daughter, Truly Young (18), smiling and holding up the certificate of admission from the University of Southern California. Dr. Dre's comments didn't mentioned Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman or their college-age children by name, but it was a pointed comment since Dre's daughter made it into the university where Olivia Jade, Lori Loughlin's daughter, attended school before this scandal shook everything up.
Dr. Dre claims that he and his daughter didn't cheat their way into the system. They didn't need to doctor SAT scores or do anything illegal to make it official. Therefore, Dr. Dre believes he has bragging rights when it comes to this acceptance letter they've received. Although, it should be noted that there were many people online who felt the need to call out Dr Dre's generous donation to the school in regards to his daughter's admission into this very prestigious college.
Shortly after Dr. Dre made this public declaration, there were folks on the Internet who were quick to point out that Dr. Dre, alongside music executive Jimmy Iovine, paid $70 million to USC to help establish the university's Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy of Arts, Technology, and the Business of Innovation. Therefore, while Dr. Dre didn't do anything illegal, he might not necessarily have bragging rights according to a few individuals. Perhaps that's the reason why Dr. Dre deleted his celebratory post only a few days later? One cannot say for certain, of course.
In any case, Dr. Dre is proud of his daughter's accomplishment, and he is happy that he doesn't need to go to jail or face criminal investigation in order to make it happen.
