Rapper and actor Ice Cube has now decided to back out of a potentially lucrative acting role over a vaccine requirement.

As The New York Post reports:

Entertainer Ice Cube left the cast of pending Sony comedy “Oh Hell No” — and walked away from a $9 million payday — after refusing the COVID-19 vaccine shot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Ice Cube was slated to co-star with Jack Black, with whom he partnered on the project in June. Filmmaker Kitao Sakurai planned to shoot the flick this winter in Hawaii, and producers asked the cast to get the jab.

Sony, Ice Cube’s agency and his personal representative, as well as co-producers Black and Matt Tolmach, all refused to comment to the outlet.

Ice Cube has not discussed his decision on social media, instead celebrating the 30th anniversary of his landmark album, “Death Certificate,” which was released on Halloween in 1991.

The film is the second production that Ice Cube has departed in the past year.
