  • Ice Cube lost to Paul Walker and Vin Diesel
  • He told USA Today he and Kevin Hart were "robbed"
  • He now says he's not a sore loser

Ice Cube apologized on Twitter to Paul Walker fans/the world after he expressed his disappointment over losing the Best Screen Duo award at the MTV Movie Awards to Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker for "Fast & Furious 6."
