Ice Cube expressed his feelings towards not winning the “Best On-Screen Duo” award at the MTV Movie Awards held on Sunday. “We was robbed,” he said on USA Today.
The award went to Vin Diesel and Paul Walker for their tandem on the Fast and Furious movies. Ice Cube was nominated, along with his co-star Kevin Hart for the movie Ride Along. In the film, Ice Cube plays a detective who has to work with Hart, a security guard and his potential brother-in-law, in taking down a crime boss.
On my way to the MTV movie awards. If me and Kevin Hart don’t win. The fix is in.

Ice Cube also said that he and Hart had the best on-screen chemistry out of everyone. “For us not to win was crazy.” The issue started when Ice Cube said that the award was only given to Diesel and Walker as a sympathy vote by the fans. He said that MTV should have given the award to Walker “before he passed away.”
Re: The sympathy vote: We should honor people before they die. That’s all. Shame on you “make something out of nothing” ass reporters. Smh — Ice Cube (@icecube) April 15, 2014
On Monday, he tweeted that he was not mad that they didn’t win, and that it was all just a hype. “I would never diss the actors who won. Not even Paul Walker. Seriously people!” said the tweet.
Don’t believe the hype. — Ice Cube (@icecube) April 15, 2014
Re: The MTV Awards. I wasn’t really mad we didn’t win. So I would never diss the actors who won. Not even Paul Walker. Seriously people! — Ice Cube (@icecube) April 15, 2014
Ice Cube also expressed his disappointment in the MTV Movie Awards in general. The rapper turned actor said that he left the ceremony shortly after arriving. He was not even there to see the tribute to Walker. “I just wasn’t into it,” he said. Ice Cube explained that he has been going to these award shows for 25 years and that he doesn’t need to torture himself if he is not into it. “As soon as you get bored, get up and leave.”
Re: Leaving early from the MTV Awards. They told me our catagory wasn’t gonna be televised. So I left. Just promoting that RIDE ALONG DVD.
