Ice-T saying he’s never tried a bagel is stressing Twitter out


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.

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.

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.

People started to debate what type of bagel Ice-T should have as his first. (Everything, of course.)

Even Philadelphia Cream Cheese asked Ice-T if he would be willing to try some bagels; they’d even send him some.

Some even tried to defend Ice-T’s decision-making.

Most were just stressed out.

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.
