Rapper-actor Ice Cube went after Jake Tapper, demanding he watch his mouth after the CNN host called Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan a “vile anti-LGBTQ anti-Semitic misogynist.”
Tapper hit out at Farrakhan following the announcement by the streaming channel Fox Soul network that they would air Farrakhan’s Message to America later this week. The network has since reversed their decision. “Farrakhan is a vile anti-LGBTQ anti-Semitic misogynist,” Tapper wrote. “Why is a Fox channel airing his propaganda?”
“Watch your mouth Jake,” Ice Cube responded.
Watch your mouth Jake. https://t.co/DqTOr24Yb6

Farrakhan, now aged 87, remains the leader of the Nation of Islam, a radical black nationalist organization known for its virulent antisemitism. Farrakhan and Ice Cube were pictured in 2018 socializing at a Big 3 basketball game, the league of retired professional basketball player Ice Cube launched.
