While, another criticized him for making the wrong choice and said, “Ice Cube the sad thing about this is that…Ice Cube knows some Black Hollywood type stars have died of covid before the vaccine was made. Now he is to me, acting like a fool I got 15 vaccines in the military I got both Pfizer shots and will get the booster and many more,”
Right now, neither the actor nor the studio has made an official statement regarding the matter.
