AceShowbiz - Dr. Dre has deleted a photo he shared of his daughter celebrating her acceptance into a top U.S. college after facing a backlash online.
The hip-hop legend and music mogul, real name Andre Young, took to Instagram this weekend (March 22-24) to show off a snap of himself posing with his girl, Truly Young, holding up her Certificate of Admissions letter from the University of Southern California (USC) - one of the schools at the centre of the U.S. college admissions scandal.
He then used the caption to take a jab at the parents involved in the bribery scam, including "Fuller House" star Lori Loughlin and "Desperate Housewives" alum Felicity Huffman, who have been charged for allegedly using their fortunes to win places in elite schools for their kids.
"My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!" he quipped.
Entertainer Nick Cannon was quick to comment on the post, writing, "Absolute success!" while other famous faces including P. Diddy, Xzibit, Busta Rhymes and Timbaland congratulated Truly on her achievement.
However, Dre soon came under fire from followers after his past links to USC were publicised by TMZ.
Back in 2013, he made a $70 million (£53 million) donation to the school for the creation of the Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation.
"I'm sure it had nothing to do with you donating a building and a school," one follower wrote on Dre's post.
The criticism has since led Dre to remove the image from social media.
