November 24, (THEWILL) – American rapper cum actor, O’Shea Jackson, aka Ice Cube, has confirmed that he lost a major movie deal because of his refusal to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
He made this known on Million Dollaz Worth of Game, with his Mount Westmore bandmates, E-40 and Too Short. According to him, he lost the Sony comedy, Oh Hell No because he was required to get vaccinated.
“I turned down a movie because I didn’t want to get the motherfucking jab”, he said on the podcast.
“I turned down $9 million. Fuck that jab and fuck y’all for trying to make me get it.”
The singer also added that the whole scenario has affected the way Hollywood executives see him. Despite the lost deal, the entertainer revealed he has a lot of things he plans to do.
“They on some shit, but I mean me too. I’m on some shit too.
“I got a lot of things up my sleeve.”
However, he backtracked on his earlier comment.
“I didn’t turn it down, the motherfuckers didn’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.”
Ice Cube later added that he hasn’t contracted COVID-19 once, so as far as he is concerned, he doesn’t need to get vaccinated.
“I got lucky,” he said. “Ain’t gonna take no shit I don’t need.”
