Ice Cube furious over Paul Walker receiving award at '2014 MTV Movie Awards'

Paul Walker winning at the “MTV Movie Awards” was seen by many as a touching farewell to the actor who perished in a fiery car accident. However, it seems that not everyone is thrilled that Paul Walker and Vin Diesel took home the award for Best Onscreen Duo. A story published on Monday by the USA Today reveals that Ice Cube is particularly upset that Paul Walker and Vin Diesel won the award.

In the story, the star revealed that he felt that Paul walker only won because of “sympathy votes”. It should be noted that much of Ice Cube’s anger is because he was nominated for the same award with Kevin Hart. They were nominated for their strong performances in “Ride Along”.

Sadly, Ice Cube did not stop his criticism at the “sympathy vote” comment. Rather, the star went to praise his and Kevin Hart’s performances in “Ride Along”. Not surprisingly, many have felt that the rap icon’s rant was ill timed and lacked class.

We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated, for us not to win was crazy” - Ice Cube

An article published on Monday by E! Online reveals that Ice Cube did not wait until the end of the “2014 MTV Movie Awards” to start protesting. Rather, it appears that the star walked out of the awards ceremony shortly after failing to receive the award.

After storming out of the awards show and ranting to reporters about Paul Walker, Ice Cube awoke this morning to widespread scrutiny on the internet. Many fans expressed their anger over Twitter and other social media outlets. While there have been a few people to defend the star’s remarks, most seem to have a negative view of them.

Do you think that Ice Cube went too far in his criticism of Paul Walker? Does he have a point about sympathy votes tilting the outcome? There is little arguing that Paul Walker likely received more votes because he had died, but does that really influence the legitimacy of the award?
