Ice Cube took to the streets of Twitter on Wednesday to set the record straight regarding his classic 1995 film, Friday, including rumors about pay and Chris Tucker.
Cube was triggered by an article where Faizon Love, who starred in the film as “Big Worm,” claimed he turned down appearing in the sequel after only making $2.500.
Someone reposted the article with the caption:
Yo it’s wild how @icecube act like he for the people and whole time been robbing his own people…..Pay them people @FAIZONLOVE @christuckerreal #RipAjjohnson
Ice Cube responded to the tweet writing:
I didn’t rob no f**kin body. The 1995 Friday movie cost $2.3m to make. Shot it in 20 days. Fazion worked 1 day, maybe 2. All the actors got paid scale to do the movie. They could’ve simple said “No” but they didn’t. So miss me with that sh*t…
Another person piled on adding that they heard Chris Tucker wouldn’t return to the franchise because of his pay.
Cube set the record straight writing:
We were ready to pay Chris Tucker $10-12m to do Next Friday but he turned us down for religious reasons. He didn’t want to cuss or smoke weed on camera anymore.

Chris Tucker is currently trending on Twitter as people react to why he declined to do more Friday films.

Ice Cube set the record straight, Chris Tucker chose to move on, and I think we all should too!
