Ice Cube tells Jake Tapper ‘Watch your mouth’ over Farrakhan criticism

Rapper Ice Cube clapped back at CNN anchor Jake Tapper on Twitter this week after the host criticized a Fox channel for planning to air a program hosted by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

“Watch your mouth Jake,” tweeted Ice Cube in response to Tapper’s tweet, which called Farrakhan a “vile anti-LGBTQ anti-Semitic misogynist” and asked why Fox Soul was airing his “propaganda.”

Fox Soul announced Monday that Farrakhan’s “Message to America” would be replaced by a compilation of speeches by Black leaders.

Ice Cube posted a series of anti-Semitic memes last month that led to widespread condemnation.
