Ice Cube on #OscarsSoWhite: ‘You Can’t Boycott Something You Never Went To Anyway’

True to his name, Ice Cube is pretty chill about Straight Outta Compton’s Oscar snub. The N.W.A biopic, which Cube produced, failed to get a nomination for Best Picture despite having widespread support at the guilds. “You can’t boycott something you never went to anyway,” Ice Cube told Graham Norton. “There’s not that much to really put that much energy into like that. We don’t do movies for the industry. We do movies for the fans, for the people. If the industry give you a trophy or not, or pat you on the back or not, it’s nice, but it’s not something you should dwell on.” So, no, he’s not really going to say that he thinks the movie was snubbed. “It’s like crying about not having enough icing on your cake. It’s just ridiculous.”
