Hollywood is known for policing cultural conformity.
That’s why so many celebrities spout the same left-wing political talking points.
But one actor turned down millions for a reason that will leave you speechless.
People are just now coming up for air after the last two years of COVID insanity.
Despite more and more facts rolling in, Joe Biden and other members of the COVID regime are still attempting to enforce nonsensical pandemic policies.
The entertainment industry in particular had draconian measures regarding the vaccine.
And rapper and actor Ice Cube admitted that he walked away from $9 million for a movie role because he refused to get the vaccine.
Ice Cube said during a podcast interview, “I turned down a movie because I didn’t want to get the motherf*cking jab. You know, I turned down $9 million…F*ck that jab, and f*ck y’all for trying to make me get it. So, you know, I don’t know how Hollywood feel about me right now, you know what I’m saying?”

Ice Cube has had a tenuous relationship with Hollywood elites as of late.
He caused a stir when he opted to meet with the Trump administration prior to the 2020 election when Biden and Kamala Harris refused to meet.
He also said that he had been “shadow-banned” on Twitter, which is when an account becomes much more difficult to find.
Shadow-bannings of counter-narrative accounts were routine before Elon Musk showed up.
Although the rapper did not mention the specific film project by name, it was reported at the time that he backed out of the comedy Oh Hell No co-starring Jack Black.
Ice Cube isn’t the only celebrity to push back against COVID tyranny in Hollywood.
Far-left actor Tim Robbins called for the actors’ guilds to lift their bans on performers who chose not to get the vaccine.
Robbins tweeted at the unions a list of updated CDC guidelines, explaining, “Hey SAG-AFTRA and Actors’ Equity, now that the CDC has changed its policy, it might be time to end your discriminatory vaccine mandates and allow those that you have marginalized and excluded to work again.”
Actress Fran Drescher compared vaccine mandates to “fascism.”
The Nanny star explained in a video message, “So to think that every human on the planet can take one vaccine is ludicrous…And to make that one vaccine the criteria for who is allowed to work, travel, dine, go to theater…is an infringement on the Disabilities Act, the Freedom of Religion Act, and body sovereignty…We as a nation must be very careful that fear does not turn into fascism. When equal citizens stop being equal, when cards must be presented to identify whether you are included or excluded, we stand at a tipping point of an America I no longer recognise.”

Finally, people are coming to their senses, but it has been an incredibly slow process.
If the so-called experts ever attempt to duplicate the COVID regime, hopefully people will be more skeptical.
