The Huffington Post reported:
Ice Cube this week confirmed a 2021 report that he missed out on a $9 million movie role because he refused the COVID-19 vaccine that cast members were required to receive.
The rapper and actor, whose real name is O’Shea Jackson, said his opposition to the shot cost him his spot in the Sony comedy “Oh Hell No” co-starring Jack Black.
“I turned down a movie because I didn’t want to get the motherfucking jab,” the former N.W.A. star told the “Million Dollaz Worth of Game” podcast in an episode released Monday.
“I turned down $9 million,” he continued. “I didn’t want to get the jab. Fuck that jab. And fuck y’all for trying to make me get it. So, you know, I don’t know how Hollywood feels about me right now.”
