Ice Cube is catching some major heat for tweeting a photo that references a popular anti-Semitic conspiracy theory about the "black cube of Saturn."
Ice Cube has been flooding the TL with a ton of out of context imagery lately, but one of his most recent posts has landed him in some hot water for its anti-Semitic messaging. On Wednesday (June 10th), in between posting photos depicting police brutality against Black people to protest the systemic racism in the United States, Cube shared some images that reference the popular "Black Cube of Saturn" conspiracy theory, which, although difficult to follow, seems to deal with Satanic worship.
However, one image in particular shows this black cube inside the star of David, seemingly insinuating a negative association between this conspiracy and Jewish people.
The photo sparked immense outrage, as Cube got called out for promoting hate towards Jewish folks.
Earlier this week, Cube was accused of promoting similar anti-Semitic sentiments when he shared an image that depicted a group of white men (who are presumed to be Jewish) playing Monopoly on the backs of Black men. "All we have to do is stand up," the image reads. "And their little game is over." The image comes from a mural in London that was removed in 2012 after complaints were made that it was anti-Semitic. "F*CK THE NEW NORMAL UNTIL THEY FIX THE OLD NORMAL!" Cube had written in the tweet.
As you may know, this is not the first time that Cube has faced accusations of anti-Semitism. In 1991, his song "No Vaseline" was denounced by much of the Jewish community for expressing anti-Semitic sentiments toward his former N.W.A. manager, Jerry Heller.
