CNN has canceled an interview with Ice Cube following revelations that the entertainer is working with the Trump administration to help the black community.
"So the POWERS that be cancelled my interview on @CuomoPrimeTime tonight," he tweeted, adding "...it seems like they can’t handle the truth."
So the POWERS that be cancelled my interview on @CuomoPrimeTime tonight. I’ve actually been ban from @CNN for a few months so I was surprised they even asked. But it seems like they can’t handle the truth.— Ice Cube (@icecube) October 15, 2020
It's unclear why Cube was banned from the network, however he was accused of anti-Semitism in July after telling anchor Jake Tapper to 'watch your mouth' after he called Louis Farrakhan a 'vile anti-LGBTQ anti-Semitic misogynist.'
The cancellation comes two days after Trump adviser Katrina Pierson tweeted "Shoutout to @icecube for his willingness to step up and work with @realDonaldTrump Administration to help develop the #PlatinumPlan," which aims to allocate $500 billion for black causes.
In August, Cube slammed Democrats for abandoning blacks. The 50-year-old entertainer, whose real name is O'Shea Jackson, claimed that Black small business owners were shut out of the trillions allocated by Congress into the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
According to the New York Times, businesses owned by blacks had a harder time receiving federal aid, for which they can thank the banks which issued the loans.
CNN wouldn't want another black rapper to go off script, now would they?
