The internet has lost its collective mind over the revelation
Ice-T has caused a stir online after revealing that he has never consumed a bagel or coffee – despite portraying a cop in an NYC-based crime series for almost 20 years.
The rapper and actor – whose real name is Tracy Lauren Marrow – stars in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as a sergeant called Odafin ‘Fin’ Tutuola.
Last night (November 9), a fan of the show tweeted Ice T to ask why his character chose the Cinnamon Raisin-flavour bagel in the latest episode. “Lol.. [because] that’s what they wrote…,” he replied.
When another viewer pressed him on his personal favourite doughy snack, he made the revelation: “I’ve never eaten a Bagel in my life…”
“You had a cinnamon raisin one on SVU,” another tweeted, with Ice-T responding: “Lol. TV is make-believe.”
Put simply, fans from New York and the wider world weren’t having it – with one follower saying that the news was ‘inconceivable’.
After the rapper also dared to confess that he’d never had coffee, one joker said: “Please for the love of all tell me you’ve at least had Iced Tea!”
Following the heated responses in his timeline, Ice-T said: “White people.. Don’t lose your Fn minds because I’ve never eaten a Bagle.. Take it easy…. lol”
In case you’re wondering, T did reveal what food and drink treats he is a fan of. Apparently, he’s partial to a jelly doughnut and grape Kool-Aid.
Meanwhile, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is currently airing its twentieth season.
