Twitter dragged Dr. Dre on Saturday night (October 16th) after Michel’le’s biopic Surviving Compton aired on Lifetime. The film details the singer’s singing career with Ruthless Records and her abusive relationships with Dr. Dre and Suge Knight. Before the film aired, Dre’s lawyers sent Sony a cease and desist letter with the threat of legal action if the film aired. In the letter, he denied ever abusing Michel’le and said that she never hinted that he was a violent person in the 30 years since they’ve dated, nor had she ever gone to the hospital or filed a police report to back up her claims.

During the film, Black Twitter went in on Dre, with one person writing, “I guess Dr. Dre can go ahead &file that lawsuit. Cuz he is def made out to be a woman beater throughout the whole movie. #SurvivingCompton.” Another wrote, “Dr Dre is a deadbeat dad and woman beater and people still buy beats by Dre. Give ‘beats’ a whole new meaning. #SurvivingCompton.”
