The Ride Along star recently hit headlines after an interview with Bloomberg Politics in April (16) resurfaced online, detailing his opinions about the upcoming election.

During the chat, Cube said, "Donald Trump is what Americans aspire to be: rich, powerful, do what you want to do, say what you want to say, be how you want to be. He looks like a boss to everybody. Americans love a boss, so that's his appeal to me."

He also levelled criticism at Trump's Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for appearing to refer to black youths as "super predators" in a speech about crime back in 1996.

Over the weekend (27-28Aug16), the quotes were picked up by users behind Twitter account Trump News Global, who edited the footage to make it appear as if Ice Cube was throwing his full support behind the Republican nominee.

But the comments about Trump were taken out of context, as Ice Cube had actually gone on to pour doubt on the billionaire businessman's statements about helping poor African-Americans, insisting, "He's a rich white guy."

After the reports of his endorsement began circulating online, Ice Cube took to social media to make it clear he will not be voting for Trump in November (16).

"I will never endorse a mothaf**ka (sic) like Donald Trump! EVER!!!" he declared.

Taking aim at the political campaigners behind the online stunt, the star added: "Stealing endorsement is not how you become the president of the United States, homie. Leave my name out ya mouth (sic)..."
