For the better part of the afternoon, Ice Cube was trending on Twitter. This is rarely a good thing, and Cube took to his own account to clarify.

Rewinding for a second, earlier in the day, Trump administration aide Katrina Pierson sent a tweet thanking Cube for his participation in the government’s “Platinum Plan” for the Black community that would help end racial injustice.

As the backlash built (some gasping at how could Cube go from N.W.A. to MAGA), Cube put out his own statement where he explained that he had been in contact with both parties in recent weeks after he shared a video on Twitter that talked about a Contract With Black America and how each party could address racial inequality.

“Facts: I put out the CWBA. Both parties contacted me. Dems said we’ll address the CWBA after the election. Trump campaign made some adjustments to their plan after talking to us about the CWBA,” Cube said in a tweet, which you can see below.

In 2016, Cube had a different view of Trump.

This isn’t the only controversial stance Cube has taken this year. In June, Cube shared an anti-Semitic and pro-QAnon meme on Twitter as well (sense a trend here?).  That came a few weeks after George Floyd’s murder and after the rapper/actor said he was “done talking” after canceling a Good Morning America appearance.
