As a direct result of the killing of George Floyd, Ice Cube canceled a scheduled Thursday appearance on Good Morning America.

“I apologize to everyone expecting to see me on Good Morning America today, but after the events in Minnesota with George Floyd, I’m in no mood to tell America, good morning,” the music mogul wrote on Twitter Thursday.

Some fans tweeted back in response, and said they were upset that Ice Cube didn’t use the opportunity to raise awareness about the situation.

One user wrote, “You could’ve used that platform to bring more awareness to it and also make a statement that needs to be made… nonetheless we all cope differently so I’m not faulting you for it… cope the way you need to.”

But the hip-hop star replied: “I’m done talking. These people know right from wrong and they obviously don’t care. So what we talking about?”

Ice Cube has been vocal about Floyd’s death since a video of the killing went viral.

On Friday morning, Cube again took to Twitter to address the protests happening throughout the nation in response to Floyd’s death.

Since the video made national headlines, protests and riots have occurred throughout Minnesota (and other parts of the nation), in addition to President Trump making statements on Twitter that seemed to add more fuel to the fire – tweeting: “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

“4 simple arrest[s] may have prevented all this mess,” Cube tweeted Friday, referring to the four police officers who were involved in Floyd’s death.

Derek Chauvin, the white Minneapolis police officer recorded with his knee on George Floyd’s neck before the African American man died, was taken into custody Friday afternoon and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.
