Ice Cube Feels ‘Robbed’ After Losing to Paul Walker Due to ‘Sympathy Votes’
“We was robbed,” he told USA Today. “Shame on MTV.”
“We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated. For us not to win was crazy,” Ice Cube continued. “We were the best onscreen duo, period.”
In Ice Cube’s defense, he wasn’t bashing Walker or his performance. Rather, he was criticizing MTV. “They should have gave it to him before he passed away,” he added.
And his loss wasn’t the only thing the rapper/actor dissed about the Movie Awards. He ended up leaving mid-show to go home and watch the Lakers.
“I just wasn’t into it,” he said. “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.”
Unfortunately for Ice Cube, the Lakers also loss.
