Coincidentally, around the same time, Jamie Foxx, the renowned actor, was recovering from an undisclosed illness that some people speculated was caused by the vaccine. as reported by Newsweek.
Reports emerged stating that Foxx, 55, was undergoing rehabilitation to regain his ability to walk after experiencing an unexplained “medical complication” in April.

In a twist of events, an unearthed video from 2022 featuring Ice Cube discussing his decision to reject the jab is now being utilized by certain anti-vaccine proponents to support their theories regarding Foxx’s condition. The clip captures Ice Cube’s revelation that he turned down a movie role alongside Jack Black in Sony’s film “Oh Hell No” in 2021 due to the vaccine mandate prevalent in Hollywood at that time.
During an interview on the “Million Dollaz Worth of Game” podcast in November 2022, Ice Cube candidly expressed his stance on the vaccine, stating, “I turned down a movie because I didn’t want to get the motherf***** jab. I turned down nine million because I didn’t want to get the jab. F*** the jab and f*** y’all for making me get it. So, you know, I don’t know how Hollywood feels right now.”
Tara Bull, a self-described Twitter Spaces host, shared the video on Twitter, garnering over 1.2 million views. Bull expressed her desire to interview Ice Cube about his decision to abstain from the COVID-19 vaccine and discuss how he withstood the pressure from Hollywood. The tweet caught the attention of various users, who drew connections between Ice Cube’s refusal and the anti-vaccine conspiracy theories surrounding Jamie Foxx.
One Twitter user commented, “ICE CUBE says that he TURNED DOWN A MOVIE because he DIDN’T WANT TO GET THE COVID VACCINE!!! #JamieFoxx #VaccinesArePOISON.” Another individual responded to Bull’s tweet, pointing out the absence of masks during the interview and implying that Ice Cube remained unscathed despite not receiving the vaccine. Yet another user on Twitter expressed admiration for Ice Cube’s decision, contrasting it with Foxx’s choice to receive the “deadly” mRNA vaccines.
