Ice Cube Wants Friday Commercial Pulled

icecube-3

Ice Cube is attempting

to pull a controversial commercial for his latest movie, "Friday After

Next." The advertisement raised eyebrows when it displayed three African-American

women in succession with the words "Ho, Ho, Ho" stamped over them.

"It was done

out of context [of the movie]," Cube told AllHipHop.com. "Marketing

people to me are a**holes who don’t know what the f**k they are doing."

Cube said that

he didn’t have anything to do with the advertisements, saying that the decision

came from New Line Cinema, the company that is releasing the movie.

"They will

pull the ads if they know what’s good for them," Cube continued. "If

they don’t, [whatever happens] is on them."

Cube’s Friday franchise

of movies and his other films "All About The Benjamins" and "Barbershop,"

have raked in $185 million on a combined budget of only $40 million.

"Friday After

Next," hits theaters today (Nov. 22.)
