AceShowbiz - Ice Cube has drawn criticism with his eyebrow-raising tweets that many deem anti-Semitic. The 5o-year-old actor/rapper faced backlash after he posted several offensive images as well as tweeted a conspiracy theory about "Black Cube of Saturn".
In one of his controversial tweets, Cube uploaded a Monopoly image, prompting his followers to ask him to delete the post. "Cube, this is an Anti-Semitic trope," one Twitter user responded. "Please take it down as it suggests Jews control everything. And trust me, we don't. Because if Jews controlled everything, I would be rich af & Donald Trump would be in prison #DoBetter."
"Hi Cube. I'm sure you didn't realize, but that's a famous anti-Semitic meme you posted. Please take it down. Jews stand with you. I know you wouldn't mean to fight hate with more hate. #BlackLivesMatter," one other fan wrote to him.
One would think that his Twitter account might have been hacked but on Wednesday, June 10, Cube personally revealed that it wasn't the case. "This is CUBE. My account has not been hacked. I speak for no organization. I only speak for the meek people of thee earth. We will not expect crumbles from your table. We have to power of almighty God backing us all over the earth. NO MORE TALKING. Repent," so he explained.
He also further sparked the anti-semitic speculations by posting images of Egyptian statues which according to The Daily Beast, have been linked to a Russian propaganda website. It was said to be a part of a "sophisticated" and "relentless" disinformation campaign that aims to manipulate identity politics in the U.S. during the 2016 presidential election.
Doubling down on the matter, Cube posted about the "Black Cube of Saturn" and its four alleged locations. Many have linked the cube to a satanic symbol.
Prior to this, Cube landed in hot water for using racist reference on his song "Black Korea". He also slammed for expressing homophobic and anti-Semitic ideas in "No Vaseline".
