YE & ICE CUBE: Hug It Out After Antisemitism Controversy
Written by JAMM on June 5, 2023
The 2 rap icons met face-to-face Friday at Cube’s home in the L.A. area — and it definitely looks like they hammered out their differences. They hugged it out as Ye was leaving, and both guys were smiling.
You’ll recall, late last year — after Ye started his antisemitic rants — he went on “Drink Champs” and claimed Ice Cube’s social media posts inspired his dangerous bigotry.
For his part, Cube made it clear he had no idea what Ye was talking about. He tweeted, “I didn’t put the batteries in his back. Please leave my name out of all the antisemitic talk. I’m not antisemitic and never have been.”
“Drink Champs” eventually deleted the episode … as it featured Ye making several offensive rants about Jews, Trevor Noah and George Floyd.
Since then Ye has claimed he no longer hates Jewish people, although his explanation for why — watching Jonah Hill in “21 Jump Street” — was, at the very least, bizarre … and, at most, highly offensive.
It’s unclear if Ye apologized to Cube — but whatever was said, they clearly parted on good terms.
