Critics were quick to point out a donation Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine previously made to the school. According to Billboard, the pair donated a combined $70 million to the school in 2013, which was "used to establish the Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation."

Dr. Dre subsequently deleted the post.
