“I’ve really been ban [sic] from @CNN for a number of months so I used to be stunned they even requested,” he continued. “However it looks as if they will’t deal with the reality.”

A Trump adviser revealed Tuesday that the administration had partnered with the “Straight Outta Compton” wordsmith on a “Platinum Plan” to assist black People.

CNN didn’t instantly reply to a request for touch upon Ice Cube’s claims in regards to the Thursday look or the alleged earlier ban.
