Ice Cube Lost $9M For Not Getting Vaxxed

Ice Cube officially confirmed reports that he lost the opportunity to make $9,000,000.00 based on his refusal to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

In the latest episode of the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast this week, Ice Cube (born O’Shea Jackson Sr) revealed that his decision not to get vaccinated cost him the acting job, stating:

“I turned down a movie because I didn’t wanna get the motherf—ing jab.” “I turned down $9 million because I didn’t want to get the jab. F— that jab and f— y’all for trying to make me get it. I don’t know how Hollywood feel about me right now,” adding “I didn’t turn [$9 million] down. Them motherf—ers 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.”

Back in October, it was reported that after declining a request from the movie producers to get vaccinated the superstar rapper/actor departed Sony’s upcoming comedy Oh Hell No featuring fellow actor/musician Jack Black, with whom he originally partnered on the project in June.
