Ice Cube’s impassioned response after slave trader’s statue is torn down

Protesters at a Black Lives Matter rally in Bristol brought down a controversial statue of Edward Colston who had profited from the slave trade in the 1600s

Ice Cube has posted an impassioned response to images of Black Lives Matter protesters toppling a statue of Edward Colston in Bristol.

The statue had been subject to a petition for its removal, which had been signed by 11,000 people, but some took it into their own hands on Sunday and brought the bronze tribute to the 17th century slave trader crashing to the floor. 

The figure was then rolled through the city centre to the harbour, where it was unceremoniously dumped into the water.

Former NWA rapper Ice Cube, 50, was one of many to respond on social media as pictures of the symbolic gesture went worldwide, Bristol Live have reported.
