Cuba Gooding Jr. Promises To "Catch A Body" If You Insult Young Thug

Or at least that's what his Instagram is promising.

Published April 8, 2016

If Cuba Gooding Jr. doesn’t trust you (or if you don’t like Young Thug’s music) apparently he’s going to shoot you. We’ve seen Cuba do some weird things but this one may take the cake.

Complex – through sleuthing though Young Thug’s Instagram comments – uncovered a back-and-forth the Grammy Award-winning actor had with a user back in December. After Gooding Jr. called Tugger’s new music better than anything The Beatles ever put out, @TheFronk90 took a shot at Thugga’s music and then questioned his comment about Thug. That’s when Cuba snapped.

"How dare you insult Thugga. I was in Snow Dogs and won't stand for this sh*t," he commented and then really started to go off after he was further mocked. "Fam, I SWEAR you finna make me catch a body. First off: Thug is an amazing rapper on a pure technical level, as well as being a great lyracist and a stone cold G. And SECOND how DARE you speak ill of “Snow Dogs” which was the top grossing movie of the YEAR?!? The Beatles NEVER had a movie and NEVER had any songs as good as Thug.”

Could playing O.J. Simpson in The People Vs. O.J. be messing with Cuba Gooding Jr.’s head? It’s unclear as to whether he was the one who actually wrote the comments but they are from his official Instagram account. Cuba was recently spotted in a club with a shirt wrapped around his head dancing like crazy so it’s definitely within the realm of possibility.

BTW, Snow Dogs wasn’t the top grossing film of 2002. It was actually 33rd. Check out the back-and-forth below. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
