Ice Cube, a rapper and actor, made a surprising and noteworthy display of personal conviction when he turned down a $9 million role in a movie because of the movie’s vaccination requirement. He did this in order to express his concerns about the growing influence of corporate conglomerates and what he views as an infringement on personal freedoms.
The rapper, whose real name is O’Shea Jackson, opened up about the instance where he turned down a $9 million offer in a recent interview with Joe Rogan on Thursday.
Before the production firm mandated that all cast and crew members receive the COVID-19 vaccine, Ice Cube was set to act with Jack Black in Sony’s upcoming comedy picture “Oh Hell No,” which is being helmed by “Bad Trip” director Kitao Sakurai.
Ice Cube rejected the job as a result of the directive, which he believed was a result of the studio rather than the producers. His decision finally became known, despite his initial effort to keep it private. His decision to refuse such a huge sum of money sparked a wave of criticism, with many people labeling him as dumb.
“I didn’t tell people that I’m not doing this movie because I don’t want to be vaccinated. But somehow, some way, the news hit the I don’t know if Hollywood Reporter or somebody put it out that this is why Cube is not doing the movie. And I thought it was chicken sh*t. It’s like, what happened to the HIPAA laws… where you’re not supposed to reveal a person’s medical status,” Ice Cube told Joe Rogan.
“[Media] want people to tell me, you turn it down $9 million, you stupid. I’ll do anything for $9 million. How stupid can Cube be?”
Although he maintains his position, Ice Cube claims he did not lose $9 million because it was never his to begin with. He made it apparent that no sum, not even $20,000,000, is worth putting one’s health at danger by being publicly shamed and under pressure to comply with the order.
“I don’t care if it was 20 million. That was never going to happen. And if you got injured from that vaccine, you would have paid that 20 million to be healthy again,” said Ice Cube.
Despite the backlash, Ice Cube remains resolute in his stance, urging others to resist when they can and use their leverage when they have it. In a world he views as increasingly shaped by powerful corporations, he urges others to “push back when we can.”

Let me know what you think!
Email me your comments and thoughts HERE!
So, is there ANYTHING American-made anymore?
The answer to that question is most definitely YES!
And it’s why I’m so passionate about my new mission.
I NEVER leave you with just the problem.
You know I’ve got the solution!
In fact, this is EXACTLY why I started my new mission close to four years ago.
The new mission is simply this: to help build out the Parallel-Economy.
Because here’s what I realized…
You THINK you have a choice between all these companies listed below in the circle, but what most people don’t realize is they’re all owned by only 11 companies.
Will probably be even less than that in the future when these merge even further.
It’s an ILLUSION of choice.
The same goes for all your media…
It’s just an ILLUSION of different choices, but owned by these 6 companies:
Now back to my Mission and my solution.
There has been a need for a Parallel-Economy and it would take time to build it but it is here finally.
They’ve been in business for 37 years and they’re a VERY pro-American, pro-Liberty, pro-Conservative values company!
They’re an American-based, Made-In-America, warehoused-in-America, shipped-from-America company!
In fact, they’re the last private, family-owned, pro-American consumer goods company left in America NOT owned by those 11 companies I showed you above.
Oh, and what if I told you the products are BETTER and often CHEAPER than what you get from those 11 companies above?
Yes, for real.
Once I learned all of that, I knew I no longer had to build this from the ground up by myself, I simply needed to partner with this awesome company to help them get the word out.
So on top of being the last Family-owned major consumer goods manufacturer not part of the Big-11, comparable or often lower prices, supporting American jobs and families, but here’s the best part.
That means no Red Dye 40 or fluoride in the toothpaste or chemicals in the cleaning products, or Deet in the mosquito repellant.
Oh, and Black Angus beef, pasture-raised on hundreds of thousands of acres.
Free roaming with plenty of open-air between all the cattle.
No hormones and no antibiotics.
Oh, and it’s CHEAPER than Omaha Steaks!
But that’s a whole other topic!
Sound good to anyone else?
The reason you’ve never heard of them is because it’s Invite Only.
I can get you in, but you can’t just go sign up.
They only want people on the same mission to join and they’re happy to say “no” to the Far-Left Libs!
They’ve been doing it for 37 years and it’s been working great.
No call centers from India.
Just real, friendly, helpful, and NICE Americans helping Americans!
Wow, like going back in a time machine.
So it is Invite only…and good thing you know someone that has the invites….(me!).
If you’d like to find out more and get a FREE personal invite, just go here and I will get the info out to you!
It’s the real deal, and because they don’t raise the Black Angus as the big companies do, they may have the SHUT OFF invites if they grow too fast.
So if you want in, let me know soon.
There’s only one pro-American, American-made and manufactured, chemical-free, toxin-free, hormone-free, company left….and I’m teaming up with them to FIGHT BACK!
Who’s with me?
