Dr. Dre Loses Fan Support After 'Surviving Compton' Shows Bad Parenting & Abuse
The Liftetime biopic, Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel'le aired over the weekend sparking some serious backlash from fans who threated to no longer support Dr. Dre and his career after watching the volatile scenes of physical abuse and bad parenting in the movie.
While west coast legendary N.W.A members found themselves achieving great success coming Straight Outta Compton, other area artists like Michel'le Toussaint, found herself simply trying to survive it.
The young "No More Lies" singer was introduced to the music game, signed a contract with Ruthless Records, and ended up in an abusive relationship with one of the group's dj/producer, Dr. Dre.
In her own words, Toussaint painted an ugly picture of brutal beatings, being a single mother and going to rehab in the Lifetime biopic. But the depiction of Aftermath Entertainment CEO, Dr. Dre, was even uglier.
Toussaint narrated scenes that showed Dre beating her, pulling a gun out on her, and then apologizing for the actions afterward. She revealed how the producer never fully acknowledged their son Marcel, and at one point, disappeared for two weeks leaving them with no money, no food and without paying the electricity bill.
It didn't take long for the hashtag #SurvivingCompton to become a trending Twitter topic - with Dre at the center of some pretty harsh fan feedaback.
Comments on boycotting his music and beats by dre heahphones flooded the site. While others used memes to express their disgust with the producer.
