Ice Cube has responded to criticism that he has collaborated with the Trump administration to develop Trump’s “Platinum Plan,” billed as “a promise to Black America over four years.” Trump Senior Advisor Katrina Pierson tweeted a thank you to Cube, saying “Shoutout to @icecube for his willingness to step up and work with @realDonaldTrump Administration to help develop the #PlatinumPlan. Leaders gonna lead, haters gonna hate. Thank you for leading!”

Ice Cube’s fans were overwhelmingly unhappy with this news. He addressed the blowback, tweeting, “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’s fans were overwhelmingly unhappy with him. One fan tweeted, “My Hip-Hop HERO @icecube is working with the Darkside. I haven’t felt this low since Kobe passed. HEARTBREAKING. Cube, I’m not sure you understand how much we value your voice. And when we see you ‘jumping the shark,’ it KILLS us. Especially in 2020.”

Cube responded, “Every side is the Darkside for us here in America. They’re all the same until something changes for us. 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.”
