'Straight Outta Compton' Cast Was Not Invited to The Oscars

The cast of the box-office hit movie Straight Outta Compton was not invited to this year's Oscars.

Following this year's Oscars' backlash over the Academy not nominating a single actor of color, it turns out the awards ceremony also chose not to invte the cast of Straight Outta Compton and its producer Ice Cube. The N.W.A founding member and rap legend broke the news with TMZ, shocking many many people considering it was one of the biggest movies of 2015, grossing over $200 million at the box office worldwide. But, the Oscars did, however, invite the two Caucasian writers who were nominated for best original screenplay. Despite getting snubbed at the Oscars, Ice Cube says he would've declined an invitation anway. He will be attending the SAG Awards and NAACP Image Awards, which both nominated Straight Outta Compton.  This news comes as Will Smith said he's pleased with the quick and immediate action of the Academy rule changes. And his belief that he wants to be the solution America's diversity problem.
