Not even the late Paul Walker is worthy of nabbing Ice Cube's awards, according to Ice Cube.

Walker and "Fast & Furious 6" co-star Vin Diesel beat out Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, who top-lined "Ride Along" together, for Best On-Screen Duo at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, and Ice Cube joked to USA Today that his loss was the result of Walker fans' "sympathy" vote.

"We was robbed," Ice Cube told the publication. "Shame on you, MTV. We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated. For us not to win was crazy. We were the best on-screen duo, period. They should have gave it to [Walker] before he passed away."

Some Twitter users labeled Ice Cube a sore loser after the actor/rapper hightailed it out of the awards once he learned the category wouldn't be aired. He unleashed a series of tweets (the best was this third-person gem: "Ice cube is not a sore loser") slamming the reaction to his indignation. He later emphasized that his ire was all in jest.
