Ice Cube took to Twitter on Monday night to address a few comments made by the media suggesting that he dissed Paul Walker during Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards.
“The MTV Awards. I wasn’t really mad we didn’t win. So I would never diss the actors who won. Not even Paul Walker. Seriously people,” Cube wrote in a series of tweets.
Ice and Kevin Hart (Ride Along) lost to Paul Walker and Vin Diesel (Fast and Furious) in the Best Onscreen Duo category and according to USA Today, the rapper said that he and Hart were “robbed.”
“Don’t believe the hype.”
“The sympathy vote: We should honor people before they die. That’s all. Shame on you “make something out of nothing” ass reporters. Smh,” he wrote.
“MTV Awards. Ice Cube is not a sore loser. I was born losing. This winning shit is what I gotta get use to.
“The 44-year-old Los Angeles native ended his Twitter rant by writing: Last tweet and I’mma leave it alone. Remember this: A lie travels further then the truth. Damn the devil is busy.” Adding, “And Paul Walker fans don’t trip. I was a fan too.”
According to reports, Ice was just having some fun during his interview with USA Today and it looks like his comment was simply misinterpreted.
