So it wasn’t so much that SNL called Lil Wayne and Ice Cube “greedy” so much as they called them out for being Trump supporters, that likely got them angry. I mean… maybe? Unless taxes are really all you care about.
Ice Cube worked with the Trump administration ahead of the 2020 presidential race, and continues to face criticism. After Jim Carrey’s Joe Biden poked fun at the actor-rapper during the most recent Saturday Night Live cold open, Ice Cube fired back.
“F**ck you SNL…trying to reduce me to greed,” he tweeted on Sunday.
The cold open in question saw Carrey’s VP read Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven, updated with a 2020 election twist. Appearing to warn the presidential candidate were Kate McKinnon’s Hilary Clinton and Fivethirtyeight’s Nate Silver (Mikey Day). Later in the sketch, Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd came on to the scene donning red “Make America Great Again” hats as Ice Cube and rapper Lil’ Wayne, respectively.
I queued up the scene, so you decide.
