Following the death of George Floyd, American actor, Ice Cube has cancelled his scheduled appearance on Good Morning Africa.
Ice Cube who was once a member of the controversial group N.W.A said he’s just not in the mood. After posting a photo of him holding an ax he decided he couldn’t go forward with the show in a happy mood while black men in America are brutally murdered, noting that ‘America has failed us.’
The actor, 50, announced via his Twitter page that he would not be appearing on the morning show to promote his new film, The High Note.
Ice Cube tweeted: “I apologize to everyone expecting to see me on Good Morning America today, but after the events in Minnesota with George Floyd I’m in no mood to tell America, good morning.”
Ice Cube spoke out against the incident on Twitter Tuesday, retweeting the viral video of Floyd’s arrest and writing, “How long will we go for Blue on Black Crime before we strike back???.”
Fans responded to his cancelation and hoped he would use the GMA appearance as a platform to share what he’s been expressing on social media.
He replied saying: “I’m done talking, These people know right from wrong and they obviously don’t care. So what we talking about?”
Since the death of George Floyd, many celebrities such as Beyonce, Madonna, Diddy, Ariana Grande, and Cardi B have expressed their outrage and offered support to Floyd and his family on social media.
Kim Kardashian shared a simple statement on Twitter that same day, featuring an illustration of Floyd and the hashtag, “#JusticeForGeorgeFloyd” and a broken heart emoji.
The officers involved in the death of Floyd were fired following Monday’s occurrence.
