Ice Cube Says He Was "Robbed" After Losing To Paul Walker At MTV Movie Awards: "Shame On You MTV"

That's cold, Ice. 

O'Shea "Ice Cube" Jackson vented his frustration on Monday, April 14, after the trophy for Best Onscreen Duo went to late actor Paul Walker and Fast & Furious 6 costar Vin Diesel at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.

"We was robbed," Ice Cube told USA Today. "Shame on you MTV."

Ice Cube claimed the Best Onscreen Duo award only went to Walker, who died last November in a car crash, as part of a "sympathy" vote by fans.

"We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated," Ice said of his performance with Kevin Hart in Ride Along. "For us not to win was crazy. We were the best onscreen duo, period."

The rapper turned actor added that the award should have been given to Walker, "before he passed away."

Beyond Walker's posthumous win, what was most upsetting to Ice Cube was the MTV Movie Awards as a whole. "I just wasn't into it," he told the paper of the star-studded live telecast. "I have been going in and out of these things for 25 years. If you ain't into it, why torture yourself? 

As soon as you get bored, get up and leave."

In fact, Ice left the Nokia Theatre shortly after arriving -- long before the Movie Awards took a serious turn and paid tribute to Walker.

Fast Seven, the final movie in the franchise to feature Walker, will hit theaters in 2015
