Ice Cube fired back at Eric Trump for sharing a photo of him and 50 Cent wearing Trump hats.
The past week has been a bit of a circus for rap legends Ice Cube and 50 Cent, who have aligned themselves with the Trump campaign. Last week, the former N.W.A. rapper was forced to defend himself from backlash for working with President Trump’s campaign, and yesterday, 50 Cent came under fire for openly tweeting his support for Trump because he didn’t like Biden’s alleged tax plan. We say “alleged” because it’s unclear if what 50 shared is 100% accurate, given that we’re living in an era of misinformation dominating the communication channels.
On Tuesday (October 20, 2020), President Trump’s son, Eric Trump, tweeted out a photo of Ice Cube and 50 Cent at a sports event wearing Trump hats. “Two great, gorgeous, Americans!” he wrote. The problem with the photo is that Twitter had to slap a “manipulated media” label on it because the image was photoshopped. The original photo was shared by Ice Cube on July 6 of this year when he wished Fifty a happy birthday. Of course, Eric Trump didn’t care about that, he just wanted to highlight that these two black men are supporting his father’s campaign for president.
