Rapper Ice Cube Faces Backlash After Working with Trump Campaign

Friday actor Ice Cube came under attack on social media after a Trump campaign staffer gave him a “shout out” for helping the administration develop the President’s “Platinum Plan” for Black Americans.

The harsh criticism began when senior campaign advisor Katrina Pierson tweeted out her thanks to the former N.W.A. rapper Wednesday afternoon.  

“Shoutout to @icecube for his willingness to step up and work with @realDonaldTrump Administration to help develop the #PlatinumPlan,” she wrote. “Leaders gonna lead, haters gonna hate. Thank you for leading!”

The hate rolled in with the numerous Twitter comments. One user said, “Nothing like out of touch rich black rappers trying to voice what’s best for the black community.” Another posted, “You got MAGA agreeing with you. That should tell you everything about your actions.”

Ice Cube defended himself from the hostile responses with the facts. “I put out the CWBA. Both parties contacted me. Dems said we’ll address the CWBA after the election,” he stated.  “Trump campaign made some adjustments to their plan after talking to us about the CWBA.”

The rapper wrote a “Contract with Black America,” which he demanded lawmakers address prior to receiving the support of Black voters. His proposed reforms include addressing the “wealth gap,” lending reform, prison reform, and education programs, which align with the President’s Platinum Plan. 

The judicial reform section of Cube’s contract suggests “lynching to become a federal hate crime and the Ku Klux Klan declared a terrorist organization,” which exists verbatim in Trump’s plan for Black America.  

 After the backlash, Pierson jumped to Ice Cube’s defense. “Black people criticizing @icecube for actually helping black people is why we haven’t had nice things.” 

Still one user said, “My Hip-Hop HERO @icecube is working with the Darkside. I haven’t felt this low since Kobe passed.” 

The rapper refuted the statement, “every side is the Darkside for us here in America.” He went on to express that all politicians are the same until there are changes in the black community. “They all lie and they all cheat but we can’t afford not to negotiate with whoever is in power or our condition in this country will never change. Our justice is bipartisan.”

Ice Cube switched sides like nobody’s business. Can’t trust him. However, this was a good move for the black community.

Why is doing something to move the black agenda forward a reason to not trust him. As they say, you can’t fix stupid.

Oh fun, the black community can’t see through the fog of their hatred. They would rather have no programs for they community than work cooperatively with the republicans. How dumb and selfish. Turn the lights on, the gates are open, free to leave the plantations, you are free. Have been free. You choose to stay.

Why are so many of you commenters so hateful. This is a great thing. How does this make him a traitor? Why is Trump the “dark side”? Trump has done well for black America.
Then China released the virus. Democrats closed their cities down destroying the economy and half of the businesses never to reopen.
