Straight Outta Compton

As we previously reported, the cast of ‘Straight Outta Compton’ would not be attending this year’s 88th Annual Academy Awards. Their decision not to attend however, had nothing to do with the Oscars boycott that has caused numerous celebs including Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith to announce they would not be attending. The Compton cast reportedly was not invited to the Oscars, the only people invited were the two writers for the film that were nominated.

Ice Cube remained unbothered by the fact he was not only snubbed for an nomination but left out of the ceremony all together. However, when The Academy was questioned about their reasoning for the diss, they claimed it wasn’t their fault and passed the buck!

According to the Academy, they nothing to do with the Oscars guest list and are only responsible for the invites of nominees. They claim anyone else who attended the Oscars gets invited by their studio.

Looks like Universal Studios didn’t have enough tickets for the cast…Not that it matters because according to Ice Cube, they “ain’t worried about it” anyways.
