Ice Cube says he turned down a request by Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris to be part of a zoom call. He didn’t want to lumped in with other “entertainers” and passed on the offer.
When Ice Cube was asked, “Kamala Harris’ folks reached out to you and wanted you to be on this Zoom call because they thought your voice was important. Why did you choose to not participate in that?”
He said, “We had spent a lot of people’s time putting the contract with Black America together, and I just thought that getting on a Zoom call with 12 other entertainers all shooting what they believe needs to be done, to me wasn’t going to be productive.”
Ice Cube added that his lawyer “has a connection with Kamala Harris, and I was promised a call that I never received. So that’s why I didn’t feel like I wanted to be on that Zoom call.”
Ice Cube remained adamant that he did not make a mistake in declining to be a part of the Zoom call, which also featured D.L. Hughley, Snoop Dogg and Killer Mike.
