AceShowbiz - Ice Cube raised people's eyebrows after meeting with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Having received criticism for posing with the outspoken anti-vaxxer and 2024 presidential candidate, the "Friday" actor set aside time to fire back at the "simple-minded" trolls.
The emcee came under fire after RFK shared a photo of them on July 10. Alongside the snap, the latter wrote, "@Dennis_Kucinich and I spent a wonderful evening with one of our country's most influential and outspoken civil rights leaders @icecube!"
Many accused Ice Cube of endorsing RFK, to which the rapper denied. "For all the simple minded short bus people out there," he wrote on Wednesday night, July 12. "A picture is not an endorsement, dummy. Now get your a** over to bungalow 51 and STFU."
A longtime fan then expressed their disappointment by writing, "My brotha ice cube, I've been listening to you since 1993 you went from arrest the president, fuk the police, straight outta Compton, the list goes on I'm highly disappointed in you brotha." The individual added, "what's your mission? Because of you I still rep the West pls tell me your not selling out."
Annoyed by the question, the "Straight Outta Compton" star stressed, "Sellout? I work for myself." He then emphasized, "I'm self-made. How do you feed your family??? How much do you sell your time for per hour on your job?"
Luckily, Ice Cube found support from fellow rapper Chuck D amid the debacle. "Know this fact. @icecube has gone into every one of these 'industries' many of the masses worship… on HIS own rule and as his OWN MAN. A game that's twisted many into demise. Not him. Know that. Seen the same dude since the day I met him. He KNOWS who he is. Know who YOU are," the latter penned, to which Ice Cube responded, "Thanks Big Bruh.
