Ice Cube continued to echo anti-Semitic tropes while slamming Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who condemned attacks on Jews.

Ice Cube has fired back at NBA icon Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for calling out the rapper for his anti-Semitic rhetoric.

In a column published on Tuesday by The Hollywood Reporter, Abdul-Jabbar wrote that the anti-Semitic posts made by Ice Cube and Philadelphia Eagles player DeSean Jackson were a  “very troubling omen for the future of the Black Lives Matter movement” and decried the “shrug of meh-rage” in sports and in Hollywood.

“When reading the dark squishy entrails of popular culture, meh-rage in the face of sustained prejudice is an indisputable sign of the coming Apatholypse: apathy to all forms of social justice,” wrote Abdul-Jabbar. “After all, if it’s OK to discriminate against one group of people by hauling out cultural stereotypes without much pushback, it must be OK to do the same to others. Illogic begets illogic.”

In a tweet on Wednesday, Ice Cube wrote, “Shame on the Hollywood Reporter who obviously gave my brother Kareem 30 pieces of silver to cut us down without even a phone call.”

It echoed the anti-Semitic tropes of Jews having money and control, including the media.
