Ice Cube Claps Back at Elon Musk for Social Media Joke

Ice Cube, the iconic rapper and former N.W.A member, didn’t hold back when Elon Musk, CEO of X (formerly known as Twitter), made a corny joke about him on social media.

On September 14, Musk shared a meme on X that featured a picture of Ice Cube next to a glass of water. The caption humorously read, “Remember Ice Cube? This is him now, feel old yet?” implying that Ice Cube had “melted” into water.

Ice Cube swiftly responded to Musk’s jab with a meme of his own. He suggested that Musk’s ownership of the social media platform had negatively impacted it, showing side-by-side images of the Twitter bird logo and a dumpster fire. Cube’s caption read, “Remember Twitter? This is it now, feel stupid yet.”

It’s worth noting that Ice Cube’s response reflects a shift in his attitude toward Musk’s ownership of X. Initially, Cube expressed excitement when Musk acquired the platform in April 2022, hoping it might lead to the removal of his shadow ban. However, like several other rappers, Cube has become critical of the changes Musk has made to the platform over the past year, including introducing a monthly fee for users to maintain their verification badges.

In this exchange, Ice Cube joins the ranks of rappers like Akon, The Game, and Soulja Boy, who have publicly expressed dissatisfaction with Elon Musk’s management of X.
