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.)
