Last fall, at the height of Covid-19 fear and vaccine tyranny, you may remember this headline featuring famous hip-hop music artist and actor Ice Cube.
Ice Cube has departed Sony’s upcoming comedy, Oh Hell No, in which he would’ve co-starred with Jack Black, after declining a request from producers to get vaccinated, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.
Now, a year later, after mandates and fear have been largely quelled, Ice Cube is still angry — and I don’t blame him.
“I turned down a movie cause I didn’t want to get to mother f*cking jab — I turned down $9 million,” Ice Cube expressed to Million Dollaz Worth of Game crew.
“F*ck that jab! And f*ck y’all for trying to make me get it!” he exclaimed. “So, you know, I don’t know how Hollywood feel about me right now, you know what I’m saying?”
“You turned down 9 million?” Gillie Da King asked with a level of astonishment.
“I didn’t turn it down,” replied Cube.
“Those mother f*ckers wouldn’t give it to me because I wouldn’t get the shot! I didn’t turn it down. They just wouldn’t give it to me.”
“Because you wouldn’t get the COVID shot?” clarified Gillie Da King.
“Yeah, the COVID shot,” said Cube.
“During the PLANdemic, man — the PLANdemic!” Wallo 267 interjected.
Gillie Da King asked Ice Cube if he ever caught COVID. Cube replied, “Nothing! F*ck them.”
“Yeah, I didn’t catch it at all,” professed Gillie. “But he [the guy on Gillie’s left] caught it about four or five times.”
“Well, you know. Circumstances, I got lucky,” stated Cube.
“I ain’t gonna take no sh*t I don’t need.”
That’s all that needs to be stated. What’s the absolute risk-benefit of taking a particular medical procedure? If it’s glaringly small (under 1%), you’re likely better off taking a pass and avoiding any side effects.
As a 52-year-old man at the time in decent shape, Ice Cube understood that and made the proper risk/benefit analysis.
Yes, he missed out on $9 million, but what good is that money if you increase your odds of not being healthy to enjoy it in the first place?

Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
