O’Shea Jackson, who we all know as Ice Cube, vented his frustration on Monday after he lost out on the Best Onscreen Duo awards to late actor Paul Walker and his “Fast & Furious 6” costar Vin Diesel at the MTV Movie Awards.
Fans took to social media to express their disappointment at his remarks.
Ice Cube tweeted late Monday, “Re: The MTV Awards. I wasn’t really mad we didn’t win. I would never diss the actors who won. Not even Paul Walker. Seriously people! Don’t believe the hype.”
The controversy started when Ice Cube claimed the award only went to Walker, who died last November in a car crash, as part of a “sympathy” vote by fans.
Ice Cube stated of his performance with Kevin Hart in “Ride Along”, “We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated. For us not to win was crazy. We were the best onscreen duo, period.”
The rapper turned actor added that the award should have been given to Walker, “before he passed away.”
Cube was upset over the boring MTV Awards long before his lost out to Paul Walker. He said of the award’s s how, “I just wasn’t into it. I have been going in and out of these things for 25 years. If you ain’t into it, why torture yourself? As soon as you get bored, get up and leave.”
In fact, Ice left the Nokia Theater shortly after arriving, long before the MTV Movie Awards paid tribute to Walker.
“Fast Seven”, the final movie in the franchise to feature Paul Walker, will hit theaters in 2015.
