"I turned down a movie because I didn't wanna get the mother******* jab," Ice Cube said on the podcast. "I turned down $9 million because I didn't want to get the jab. F*** that jab and f*** y'all for trying to make me get it. I don't know how Hollywood feel about me right now," he added.

"Them mother******* wouldn't give it to me because I wouldn't get the shot. I didn't turn it down. They just didn't give it to me," he said, as reported by LA Times. "The Covid shot, the jab ... I didn't need it. I didn't catch that shit at all."

The film was delayed after Ice Cube's exit, said the outlet. And it is still not clear when and how it will move forward. So far, Sony Pictures has not announced any replacement for Ice Cube.
