Ice Cube Tries to Backtrack on A**hole Paul Walker Comments

Before the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, Ice Cube tweeted that he was sure he and his Ride Along co-star Kevin Hart were going to take home a cheap-looking popcorn trophy for Best Onscreen Duo, even going so far as to say if they didn’t win, the whole thing was fixed. Really, Ice Cube? Of course it was fixed; it was fixed the second Paul Walker flew up to Heaven on a tank of NOS. But instead of practicing his runner-up pageant clap, Ice Cube prepared an acceptance speech, because he has ice cubes for brains.

Surely enough, Paul Walker and Vin Diesel won Best Onscreen Duo, and Ice Cube turned into Ice Cream: The Bitchy Pageant Queen, first by leaving halfway through the ceremony, then by telling USA Today that he and Hart were “robbed” and that Paul Walker and Vin Diesel only won out of “sympathy”. DUH! If anyone deserves our sympathy, it’s this man. But also duh because Paul Walker RIP and whatnot.

Eventually, Ice Cube stopped pouting long enough to realize that maybe he was a bit too quick with the Nancy Kerrigan act, and started back-pedalling on Twitter:

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!

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

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.

I’m willing to cut Ice Cube some slack because obviously no one’s told him that an MTV Movie Award isn’t a real award and that if he wants one so badly, he could probably buy one of Pauly Shore’s on eBay for $10. But at the very least he should know the hierarchy of award winning is Dead Person, then Old Person, Daniel Day Lewis, Actress In Ugly Drag, and then everyone else.
