A man claiming to be a rabbi filed a $2 million lawsuit against rapper Ice Cube accusing him of assault and battery fueled by antisemitism, gossip site TMZ reported on Wednesday.

The complainant, named P. Taras, who says he is rabbinicaly ordained, told TMZ he bumped into Ice Cube on Sunday outside an elevator at the MGM casino in Detroit. He told the rapper, “hey, watch out where you’re going,” International Business Times reported.

The entertainer responded by having his entourage drag the man to the floor and beat him, according to the victim.

Taras said the assailants cursed him with several antisemitic slurs, which he believes were inspired by the fact that he was wearing a Jewish skullcap, also called a yarmulke.

A representative for Ice Cube denied the claims, saying, “Not only are these accusations a lie, he doesn’t even know who this guy is.”

    I live in Detroit and go to that casino often amd the hood havent said anything about (yes I said the hood) in fact Cube was here back in May and did a show at the fox Theater. But oh the lies they’ve been calling him antisemitic for 20 years now. It’s a load of crap plus the casino has surveillance cameras everywhere….. where’s the video of this so called beating and also what is a Rabbi doing at a casino? Come on people let’s stop letting TMZ do our thinking for us and use our own brains. Common sense could tell you this is a lie plus most of the Jewish community here stays in Oak Park a suburb of Detroit they never even come to Detroit often.

    I’m shocked at this story, I knew Ice Cube went to Islam, I’m not sure his ancestry traces back, his Asiatic features are very imposing.

    I think this speaks to the energy alive andwell in the world, and no Jew is immune to it. The acts of a few is projected on the many. I don’t know the full details as none of you either, but there must have been a cause/effect scenario that created the circumstances.

    Rabbis are usually disciplined individuals, unless he was an unlicensed Reform Rabbi gone rouge. Whatever the case, no Jewish person should have to tolerate antisemitism anywhere in the world because of the hate doctrine of many.

    Islam is arrogant, hatefull and outright evil cult, that generates and befats negative frequencies. It is a virtual mind program being played out every second, with images of hell and suffering in flesh on global entities. It is a virus gone viral, and the only way to end it, unfortunately, is to abolish is momentum in democratic nations.

    It will divide and send subliminal energy that will cause the populace to eventually turn on Jesus and then each other, and eventually submit to a Sharia led militia, if we allow it.

    This message is for all free sovereign partakers, the global clock is ticking, support Israel, stand up with the law receivers.

    WOULD NOT EXPECT ANYTHING DIFFERENT FROM ‘ICE CUBE’….HOWEVER, THERE IS A SPACE THAT SHOULD NOT BE CLIMBED AND THAT IS LYING ABOUT AN INDIVIDUAL BECAUSE ‘YOU MAY REAP THE BENEFITS OF A REWARD’

    NOT SURE THIS IS TRUE…..ALGEMEINER…..IF ITS NOT TRUE YOU NEED TO BE MORE CAREFUL…….IF THIS IS NOT TRUE HOW MANY OTHER NONSENSE AND HATEFUL WORDS HIT THIS PAGE AND ANGER INDIVIDUALS LIKE MYSELF WHO HAVE ONLY POSITIVE PLANS FOR ‘JEWS’…….GOOD ONES.

    Ice Cube’s got money. The “rabbi” is looking for a payday. Might have run into him. Maybe words were exchanged. Anything else likely never happened.

    Oshea Jackson aka Ice Cube is a Muslim who is a fan of the Nation of Islam. Story is very believable, but I’ll wait for the surveillance video.
