The conversation between the former Fox News host and the songwriter began with Carlson asking Ice Cube if he left the production of comedy Oh Hell No in 2021 because he refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

"Yeah, I'm not real good with direct orders," the 54-year-old replied, who still has yet to get the COVID-19 vaccine. "It wasn't ready. You know, it was a six-month kind of rush job and I didn't feel safe."

Carlson followed up by inquiring if it was a hard decision for the actor, to which the Straight Outta Compton alum said, "No, it wasn't a tough call. I wanted to be an example for my kids, really make sure they wouldn't take it either, show them that I want to stand on my convictions and that I was willing to lose $9 million and more, because we've probably lost more since then."

"I never told anyone not to get vaccinated publicly. That was never my message to the world," he added. "I didn’t even want people to know whether I got vaccinated or not. I was pretty upset that that even came out, because I was just gonna quietly, you know, just not take it and deal with the consequences as they came."

The former newscaster then asked if Ice Cube knew anyone who was harmed by the vaccine.
