LOS ANGELES, CA. (THECOUNT) — Rapper turned actor, Ice Cube, says Chris Tucker turned down his offer to reprise his role in movie franchise “Friday,” because of “religious reasons,” the rap-tor tweeted on Wednesday.

Cube took to Twitter, saying Tucker “turned us down for religious reasons,” continuing, “He didn’t want to cuss or smoke weed on camera anymore.”


This news comes as Ice Cube defended himself over the meager amount of money paid to actors for their work in the original Friday hit movie.

Cube lashed out on Twitter, responding to an interview Faizon Love did, claiming he was only paid $2,500 to play Big Worm in “Friday.” That led others to accuse Cube of “robbing his own people.”

Tucker has not responded to Cube’s tweet.
