Ice Cube says that Oprah Winfrey wouldnâ€™t have him on her platform. He discussed his issues with Winfrey as well as The View during an interview with Tucker Carlson on his new Twitter show, Tuesday.
â€œI tried to go on The View. They didnâ€™t have me on The View,â€ he began. â€œA few of the hosts just really didnâ€™t like where I was coming from. Thatâ€™s what I was told by the producers. I donâ€™t know if it was the producers was just copping out and using some of the hosts to have me not explain myself. Iâ€™ve been on there before. Itâ€™s just when Iâ€™ve become an independent thinker. I donâ€™t follow their brand of politics I guess.â€

He further said: â€œIâ€™ve been excluded on Oprah. I donâ€™t know that it is. You know, I had a movie called Barbershop that I wasnâ€™t invited to participate with the cast [on Oprahâ€™s show]. I produced a show called Black White. It was a very controversial show and once again [Oprah] had the whole cast on and I wasnâ€™t invited. So I donâ€™t know what thatâ€™s really about. I really donâ€™t know [why]. Thatâ€™s something that I would love to find out.â€
Itâ€™s not the first time Cube has expressed issues with Oprah Winfrey. Speaking with the magazine, FHM, in 2006, he previously revealed that the talk show host wouldnâ€™t have him on for his aforementioned film, Barbershop. â€œFor Barbershop, she had Cedric The Entertainer and Eve on, but I wasnâ€™t invited. Sheâ€™s had damn rapists, child molesters, and lying authors on her show. And if Iâ€™m not a rags-to-riches story for her, who is?â€ he said at the time.
