Rapper-turned-actor Ice Cube has slammed MTV for losing out on an award that went to the late actor Paul Walker.
Ice Cube was not happy that the award for Best Onscreen Duo was dedicated to Paul Walker and his co-star Vin Diesel at Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards for their performance in Fast & Furious 6.
Ice Cube insisted the award should have gone to him and Kevin Hart for their performance in Ride Along, and said the only reason Walker, who died in a car crash in November, won was out of “sympathy.”
“We was robbed,” he said. “Shame on MTV.”
“We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated. For us not to win was crazy,” Ice Cube added.
Ice Cube did however add that MTV should have given the late actor the award before he passed away.
The star left the awards halfway through the show saying afterwards, “I just wasn’t into it. I have been going in and out of these things for 25 years. If you ain’t into it, why torture yourself? As soon as you get bored, get up and leave.”
