Knocked back at Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Ice Cube accused the NBA star of being a Judas after criticizing the rapper and several other black celebrities for their anti-Semitic tweets he called ‘a disturbing omen’ for the Black Lives Matter movement.
In a damning column published in The Hollywood Reporter Jabbar Tuesday called Ice Cube, NFL star DeSean Jackson and fellow NBA player Stephen Jackson for recent social media posts featuring anti-Semitic posts, some of which promoted the nation’s controversial views of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Jabbar referred to a series of Ice Cube tweets last month that he said included “creepy symbols and images,” implying that Jews were responsible for oppressing blacks.

Jabbar promoted his new column on Tuesday amid controversy surrounding Ice Cube’s tweets and Nick Cannon’s podcast in which he spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories
He criticized the “lack of outrage” over the tweets and said he was shocked to see little public outrage despite the “new Woke fulness in Hollywood.”
“It is so daunting to see people from groups who have been violently marginalized doing the same for others without realizing that perpetuating this kind of bad logic perpetuates racism,” Jabbar wrote.
Ice Cube fired back at Jabbar accusing him of being sold out to write the takeout piece.
“Too bad about the Hollywood Reporter who clearly gave my brother Kareem 30 pieces of silver to cut us down without even a phone call,” he tweeted Wednesday.
The phrase refers to the biblical story of Judas who received 30 pieces of silver to betray Jesus.
Jabbar has yet to publicly respond to Ice Cube’s comments.
The athlete’s column was published as the backlash increased over Nick Cannon’s recent podcast in which the actor made anti-Semitic comments calling whites ‘barbaric’, ‘bad’ and ‘savage’.
Cannon was fired by ViacomCBS on Tuesday for promoting “spiteful speech” in the episode where he spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories claiming that black people had been robbed of their birthright by Jews.
Jabbar’s words have been praised by a number of Jewish celebrities, including Sarah Silverman and Jake Tapper
The actor rebelled further on Wednesday after refusing to say he was sorry and making a statement accusing the media giant of being on the wrong side of history.
Jabbar did not mention Cannon in his play, but criticized Ice Cube and others for continuing to “marinate provocatively in their own prejudice,” even after being called.
“Their arrogant and irrational response to anti-Semitism accusations, rather than discouraging us, actually corroborated people’s worst opinions,” Jabbar wrote.
Ice Cube’s response was brutal: ‘What if I was just pro-black? This is the truth brother. I didn’t lie to anyone. I didn’t say I was against anyone. Don’t BELIEVE THE HYPE. tell my truth. ”
