(Video) Ice Cube And Straight Outta Compton Cast Will Not Attend The Oscars Because They Weren’t Invited

Ice Cube remains unbothered by the growing controversy surrounding The Oscars. While actors like Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee have called for a boycott of the 88th Annual Awards show, Ice Cube isn’t worried about boycotting because he wasn’t invited! According to TMZ, the cast of “Straight Outta Compton” will NOT be at the Oscars because the only people invited were the two writers that were nominated. It remains unclear if this was done intentionally or what the Acadmey’s process is for inviting actors, but Cube doesn’t seem to care. He’s been questioned multiple times about the Oscars and his feelings and he’s stuck to his answer, “I’m not worried abut the Oscars.” Sources close to him reveal even if he was invited he would have RSVP’d “No.” The Acadmey has yet to respond about why Ice Cube and the cast were not invited but it’s been reported we can expect to see them at the SAG Awards and NAACP Image Awards.

They do what they do.” Cube did open up about one huge honor N.W.A. will receive this year however; being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. When Williams asked if he would have been disappointed to not have been inducted he said;

“It is nice to be recognized, but N.W.A is anti-establishment so we’re used to people trying to dismiss what we gotta say, used to the industry looking down on us. We were the black sheeps of the industry and we used to it. If we didn’t get nominated, that would be familiar territory.”
