Ice Cube turned down movie with COVID-19 vaccine requirement

Ice Cube won’t get the COVID-19 vaccine — not even for $9 million.

In a new episode of the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast Sunday, the rapper and actor announced Sunday that he has given up a $9 million movie deal because he refused to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“I turned down a movie because I didn’t want to get the shit,” Ice Cube said. “I turned down $9 million because I didn’t want to get the jab. F- that jab and f- y’all for trying to get me to get it. I don’t know how Hollywood feels about me right now.”

Reports surfaced last October that the hip-hop musician had left Sony Pictures’ comedy Oh Hell No after he turned down a request from producers for a vaccination. Directed by Kitao Sakurai, the film was set to star Ice Cube and Jack Black, who is one of the producers, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The project, which was set to begin production in Hawaii last winter, was reportedly delayed due to Ice Cube’s departure. It’s unclear if or when the film will continue. A replacement for Ice Cube has not been announced.

“I didn’t turn around [$9 million] down,” Ice Cube continued with “Million Dollar Worth of Game.”

‘That motherf— wouldn’t give it to me because I wouldn’t get the shot. I didn’t turn it down. They just didn’t give it to me.”

The recording artist also said he was “lucky” and didn’t contract COVID-19.

Medical experts have determined that vaccination is the safest and most effective way to protect against serious illness from COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have identified additional ways to protect yourself and others from the coronavirus.
