Ice Cube calls out Eric Trump for tweeting photoshopped image of him in a Trump hat

Ice Cube wasn’t having any of Eric Trump’s BS, calling out the president’s son for tweeting a photoshopped image of the rapper and 50 Cent donning Trump campaign hats.

Ice Cube has hilariously put Eric Trump in his place after the president’s son tweeted a photoshopped image of the rapper and 50 Cent wearing campaign hats.

The image pictures Ice Cube and 50 Cent wearing caps with the Trump 2020 campaign logos front and centre, with Trump captioning the tweet, “Two great, courageous Americans!”

In what has seemingly become commonplace for a Trump family member‘s tweet, Twitter marked the photo as ‘manipulated media’. Aren’t we glad we have the Trump family leading the fight against fake news?

It was quickly discovered that the edited image had been taken from an Ice Cube tweet made back in July, which pictured the rapper wearing a Big3 cap and 50 Cent a New York Yankees cap – and no Trump paraphernalia in sight.

Ice Cube responded to the post in typical fashion, before Trump most humiliatingly deleted the tweet.

While the tweet may have been fabricated, 50 Cent’s support for the Trump administration has been documented, with the rapper recently endorsing Donald Trump for president.

Meanwhile, senior Trump official, Katrina Pierson, last week thanked Ice Cube for working with them in putting together ‘The Platinum Plan for Black America’.

However, Ice Cube later clarified his involvement when one fan used a Star Wars reference to share their disappointment in the rapper’s movement to the “Darkside”.

He tweeted, “Every side is the Darkside for us here in America. They’re all the same until something changes for us.”

He continued, “They all lie and they all cheat but we can’t afford not to negotiate with whoever is in power or our condition in this country will never change. Our justice is bipartisan.” 

Between Eric’s tweet, and Donald Jr’s grammatical error in the title of his new book, I’m beginning to think this Trump family might not be brightest.
