Ice Cube will still sit down with Bill Maher on Friday night as scheduled, but the conversation will be much different than planned.
Maher came under fire this week after referring to himself as a “house ni**er” when asked by Sen. Ben Sasse to come “work in the fields” of Nebraska. But while people like Senator Al Franken are canceling their appearances because of the incident, Cube is taking a different stance.
Cube’s rep revealed in a statement that the rapper “will still appear on Bill Maher this Friday as scheduled to talk about the release of ‘Death Certificate: 25th Anniversary’ edition, an album that was recorded in the wake of the Rodney King beating in 1991, which sadly, speaks to many of the same race issues that we as a society are still dealing with today.”
Talk about perfect timing to school the talk show host.
According to reports, the 47-year-old plans to tackle the controversial remark head on, and he isn’t alone. Former national press secretary for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, Symone Sanders, also plans on appearing on Friday’s show.
