Rapper furious about award snub

I *ce Cube *has blasted the MTV Movie Awards for giving the Best Onscreen Duo trophy to *Paul Walker *posthumously.

The rapper believes the Fast & Furious 6 star, who died in a car crash in November, and his co-star *Vin Diesel *only won out of "sympathy" and insists he and his Ride Along co-star *Kevin Hart *deserved it.

"We was robbed. Shame on you, MTV," the 44-year-old actor told USA Today newspaper.

"We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated, for us not to win was crazy. We were the best onscreen duo, period," he said.

Walker was also honoured during a special tribute led by his co-star, *Jordana Brewster *, at the star-studded event.

But Ice Cube claims he wasn't suggesting the late actor, 40, wasn't talented enough to receive the accolade. "They should have gave it to him before he passed away," he said.

The actor also left the ceremony, * *at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles on Monday WA time, mid-show because he wasn't enjoying himself.

"I just wasn't into it. I have been going in and out of these things for 25 years," he said. "If you ain't into it, why torture yourself? As soon as you get bored, get up and leave."

Shortly before the awards, the rapper took to Twitter to express his sentiments if he and Hart didn't take out the award. "On my way to the MTV movie awards. If me and Kevin Hart don't win. The fix is in," he wrote.
