Ice Cube Responds To Tweet Controversy: “My Account Has Not Been Hacked”
It may seem inconceivable that a man who once penned lyrics for a song called “F*ck the Police” could be criticized over his radical views on the government, but that’s exactly what happened to Ice Cube on Wednesday (June 10). Over the last week, Ice Cube has joined millions of others who have used their platforms to support Black Lives Matter and to speak against systematic racism. However, a few of the memes Cube has shared has caused a bit of confusion, leaving him the target of anti-Semitic accusations.
Ice Cube posted the “Black Cube of Saturn” along with four images that showed statues of the cube in various locations. The cube is believed to be a symbol of Satanic worship, and later, the rapper reportedly posted that the “Black Cube of Saturn” fits inside the center of the Star of David. This photo caused a hailstorm of backlash and the rapper was his with anti-Semitic accusations from the public.
Cube penned in another tweet to Jack Dorsey saying that he better not be censored after writing, “This is CUBE. My account has not been hacked. I speak for no organization. I only speak for the meek people of thee earth. We will not expect crumbles from your table. We have to power of almighty God backing us all over the earth. NO MORE TALKING. Repent.” He added, “I will continue to keep our people motivated, informed and provide simple solutions to help solve the problems that America has caused our people. These are my acutel facts as I see it. You can take it or let it alone.” Check out tweets by Ice Cube along with mixed reactions below.
