Legendary West Coast rapper and producer Dr. Dre is catching serious blowback after bragging on Instagram that his daughter got into the University of Southern California without any help from her parents and that no one had to go to jail for it.

Dr. Dre, 54, was obviously taking a vicious swipe at defamed and disgraced actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, both of whom became ensnared in the largest college cheating scandal of all time. Loughlin and Huffman face felony charges for illegally bribing to get their daughters into USC, one of the most elite schools in California, if not the nation.

But did Dre’s daughter, Truly Young, really get into the school on her own? Most people scream “no,” especially after The Chronic rapper and Beats by Dre co-creator gave $70 million to USC along with partner Jimmy Iovine, and now the hitmaker has a school and degree named after him.

Dre, who was born Andre Romelle Young in an area formerly known as South Central Los Angeles, posted and then quickly deleted this message bragging on his daughter about her acceptance letter.

A stampede of outraged Twitter users came for Dr. Dre almost immediately after he had the audacity to word his post in this manner, though he also did have a few supporters. Check out a sampling of the social media response:
