‘Oh Hell No’: Ice Cube Reportedly Walks Away from $9 Million Movie Project Due to Its Vaccine Mandate

Ice Cube's new project Oh Hell No is going to have to continue without him, after the actor-turned-rapper responded in a similar manner when asked to take COVID-19 shots as part of the film's vaccine mandate.
Sources close to the situation said that Cube refused producers' request to be vaccinated. He then walked away from a $ 9 million payout.

OShea Jackson is the Friday franchise creator. He was originally set to star alongside Jack Black, who is still expected to be involved in the film. However, Black is currently recovering from an injury sustained on a previous project. Production was originally scheduled to begin in December, but the studio may delay production while they search for a replacement.

Rapper reports of an anti-vax position drew mostly negative reactions. One side portrays anti-vaxxers pro choice, while the other points out that vaccines are good for everyone.

One twitter critic said that there is no room for people who would allow harm to the public. His large number of followers sends a clear message that he is not vaccinated to all those who follow him.

I don't see any problem with him refusing to get vaccinated. As long as you aren't wandering around in the dark without your mask on, I wouldn't mind if you did. He's not expressing his opposition to vaccines by refusing to get them.

However, the former member of the NWA has advocated for other protections against the deadly virus in the past. According to entertainment outlet, he donated 2000 face masks last August to Bacone College in Oklahoma.

The You Can Do It emcee launched a series T-shirts branded Check Yo Self before You Wreck Yo Self, which featured him in a mask. This project was done in partnership with Black Out. According to reports, the proceeds were donated to frontline healthcare workers.

This is the second time the 52-year old has left the project since the outbreak of the pandemic. According to sources, Cube was supposed to be the star of Flint Strong, a boxing movie. His reasons for leaving have not been revealed.
