Ice-T has never had a bagel in his life, or so he tweeted on Friday. Get this: He has also never had coffee.
Needless to say, the internet is shook.
Lol. I’ve never eaten a Bagel in my life... https://t.co/1a4jtL9qTP— ICE T (@FINALLEVEL) November 9, 2018
I’ve never drank a cup of Coffee ☕️ either... Go CRAZY!!!— ICE T (@FINALLEVEL) November 9, 2018
Twitter user @kimsue1266 pointed out that he had a cinnamon raisin bagel while playing Odafin “Fin” Tutuola on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. But if you look closely at the video clip by Vulture, Ice-T never takes a bite of the bagel, leaving it untouched.
Lol. TV is make believe. https://t.co/gLcazwSOey— ICE T (@FINALLEVEL) November 9, 2018
Twitter expressed its disbelief, asking how it’s possible that in his 60 years of living, Ice-T—who was born in Newark, New Jersey, a stone’s throw from New York City, arguably the bagel capital of America (don’t fight me)—has never had what’s considered a staple breakfast option for most Americans.
You've been playing an NYPD cop for 18yrs and never had a bagel?— B'Gandhi (@leisureforce75) November 9, 2018
You've missing out man, give them a try!— Ohmwrecker (@Ohmwrecker) November 9, 2018
you should try one dude— Rob (@robrousseau) November 9, 2018
People started to debate what type of bagel Ice-T should have as his first. (Everything, of course.)
But what should he try for his first? Plain? Sesame? Everything? Blueberry? Toasted? Cream cheese? So many options.— Shané Nikolao (@snikolao) November 9, 2018
Sesame. Ideally sesame egg or Black Russian, but sesame anything. And yes, cream cheese is required.— onward2waffles (@onward2waffles) November 9, 2018
Everything bagels are EVERYTHING! And yes cream cheese is a must.— B. Pea (@beepea06) November 9, 2018
Everything with cream cheese.— chris (@wentzylvania717) November 9, 2018
Ice T you need to get on that #FINALLEVEL and have an onion bagel warmed with cream cheese...BOMB 😎— Teetimethough (@TennisonWatinae) November 9, 2018
Even Philadelphia Cream Cheese asked Ice-T if he would be willing to try some bagels; they’d even send him some.
Ice, we’re trying to remain calm, we’re just having a hard time letting you miss out on deliciousness. We’d be happy to send you some bagels and cream cheese so you can see for yourself. Thoughts?— PHILADELPHIA (@LoveMyPhilly) November 9, 2018
Some even tried to defend Ice-T’s decision-making.
Don't do it man, they taste of plastic and sadness.— 𝔗𝔞𝔫𝔦𝔱𝔥 (@erikatanith) November 9, 2018
I had one once in Nevada and it was awful! Should I ever find myself in NYC I will take you on your word and try again :)— 𝔗𝔞𝔫𝔦𝔱𝔥 (@erikatanith) November 9, 2018
Most were just stressed out.
I’m from NY too and this actually stresses me out.— Mich. (@Ickus_) November 9, 2018
Me when I heard the news Ice T dishing tea that he’s never had a bagel ever...never...ever. pic.twitter.com/fgMVOKuI7K— The Smoky Poet (@TheSmokyPoet) November 9, 2018
Ice-T is not the only celebrity to have limited his food options. Apparently, Kylie Jenner has never had cereal with milk until this year, an experience she called “life-changing.” (Though, that claim has since been debated.)
So Ice-T, make like Kylie and try a very standard breakfast food and tell us what you think. Please put us out of our misery.
