Many people were happy to see Paul Walker and Vin Diesel take home the golden popcorn at the MTV Movie Awards Sunday night for best onscreen duo in Fast & Furious 6.
Ice Cube wasn't one of them.
The actor-rapper lashed out at MTV, saying he and Kevin Hart deserved the win for their flick Ride Along.

"We was robbed," he said in a new interview. "Shame on you MTV."
Ice Cube believes it was a "sympathy" vote by fans, who chose the winners.
"We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated, for us not to win was crazy," says Ice Cube. "We were the best onscreen duo, period."

He added to USA Today, "They should have gave it to him before he passed away," referring to Paul, who lost his life in a car accident last November.
Ride Along was a major box office success when it was released during Martin Luther King Jr. weekend in January. It set records as the biggest opening of that weekend and went on to gross $150 million worldwide. Fast was released last May and went on to make $788 million globally.
TMZ has since spoken to Ice Cube, who says his comments weren't a diss to the late actor.
"I wasn't really mad we didn't win. So I would never diss the actors who won. Not even Paul Walker," he told the outlet, adding he had a joking tone during his USA interview.

He also tweeted: "Ice Cube is not a sore loser. I was born losing. This winning s--t is what I gotta get use to."
While Ice believed Paul victory was a way of honoring the Fast & the Furious star, the late actor was actually honored with a touching tribute, presented by his Fast costar Jordana Brewster.
