Dr. Dre on Domestic Abuse Accusations: "I Apologize to the Women I’ve Hurt."

Although Straight Outta Compton has generally been receiving critical acclaim, the N.W.A. biopic was criticized for leaving out certain details that were well known and documented about the West Coast gangsta rap group. One of these include the accusation that Dr. Dre had physically hurt a number of women during the earlier years of his career. While Dre did not confirm these claims directly, he addresses his regret and promises that he has changed and is constantly working on his weaknesses in a statement to the New York Times.

I apologize to the women I’ve hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives.”
