Ice Cube has confirmed that he missed out on a $9 million acting role as a result of choosing not to get the COVID vaccine.
According to Variety, reports surfaced back in Oct. 2021 that the rapper and actor was dropped from the Sony comedy Oh Hell No and that producers on the film reportedly asked for all cast members to be vaccinated in order to participate in production. Filming was planned to take place in Hawaii.
“I turned down a movie because I didn’t want to get the motherf**king jab,” Cube said, in a new episode of the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast, confirming reports. “I turned down $9 million. I didn’t want to get the jab. F**k that jab. F**k ya’ll for trying to make me get it. I don’t know how Hollywood feels about me right now.”
Adding, “Those motherf**kers didn’t give it to me because I wouldn’t get the shot. I didn’t turn it down. They just wouldn’t give it to me. The covid shot, the jab…I didn’t need it. I didn’t catch that shit at all. Nothing. F**k them. I didn’t need that s*it.”
