Ice Cube Cancels His ‘Good Morning America’ Appearance In The Wake Of George Floyd’s Death

On Thursday, Ice Cube was scheduled to appear on Good Morning America to promote his latest film “The High Note,” co-stars Tracee Ellis Ross. However, his appearance on the show didn’t happen and he let his followers know why.

Ice Cube took to Twitter said, “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.”

Shortly after his announcement, a fan said to him, “You could’ve used that platform to bring more awareness to it and also make a statement that needs to be made.. nonetheless, we all cope differently so I’m not faulting you for it.. cope the way you need to.”

Ice Cube responded and said, “I’m done talking. These people know right from wrong and they obviously don’t care. So what we talking about?”

As previously reported, video footage showed George Floyd handcuffed and pinned to the ground by Minneapolis police. In the video, he pleaded with one of the officers to get off of his neck because he could not breathe.

The video also showed George unresponsive as the ambulance took him away, he was announced deceased following the incident.

Many celebrities have used their platforms to speak against the injustice that was demonstrated in that video. There have also been riots and looting that have broken out in response to the unnecessary act of violence in Minneapolis.
