Ice Cube is sharing his thoughts after Katt Williams’ viral Club Shay Shay interview, in which he discussed a potential bathroom rape scene in the Friday After Next.

Cube denied via X (formerly known as Twitter) on Friday (Jan. 5) that he would film a rape scene after Williams said on the podcast that he had pushed for the removal of the sexual assault clip. The scene in reference features Williams’ character Money Mike, who would allegedly get cornered in a bathroom by Terry Crews’ character Damon. During his interview, Williams said “Money Mike, in the original script, got raped in the bathroom,” and he ultimately advocated for the scene to be cut.

“I would never shoot a rape scene in a movie, especially Friday, where you actually see this happening on camera. That ain’t my style,” Ice Cube said. “The plier joke was always in the script. We would never ever show that. That’s not my style if you look at any of my movies. So, that was never a discussion.”

Ice Cube added that there was a “discrepancy” in how he and Williams remembered how it went down. “At that point in everybody’s career, we will listen to a certain extent, but we wasn’t gonna change the movie for it. For any actor, you know?” he said. “We do what we feel and if it was a rape scene, it would have been in the movie. There was no reason not to shoot it. But that’s not my style.”

HYBE and its Pledis Entertainment subsidiary announced the debut of a new boy band, TWS, and the release of the […]
