All hell broke loose when someone on Twitter asked him what his favorite type of bagel was. Ice-T came clean and said he had never had one – or a cup of coffee for that matter, unleashing a flood of reactions everywhere.
He explained to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that “Everybody lost their god damn mind. I don’t know why that’s so hard for people to believe.” He said that he responded to people on Twitter.

Indeed, this particular piece of information about the star came as a shock to Law & Order: Special Victims Unit fans everywhere – how could Odafin “Fin” Tutuola have never eaten a bagel in his life? Of course, he had! One Twitter user (the internet people are amazingly good sleuths) had proof — he once had a cream cheese bagel on the show itself. Vulture analyzed the scene thoroughly for us:
In fact, Ice-T revealed to Fallon that he did not actually eat that bagel on the show. He just acted like he ate it, but he did not really eat it, he explained. Since the Twitter storm he provoked, Ice-T has sampled the breakfast staple.
Fallon wanted to know Ice-T’s opinion now he’d had one, to which the star replied that the one bite felt like he ate a loaf of bread. He also added: “Why would I eat an unsweetened doughnut? I like jelly doughnuts, let’s keep it moving.”
Indeed, Ice-T has turned his first-time experience into an advertising partnership for a dating app.
He posted a video ad to Twitter, which sees him trying a coffee and a bagel on behalf of dating site Coffee Meets Bagel. Ice-T posted the tasting video for his 1.07 million followers to watch. He was clearly not a fan of the coffee, saying that it “tastes like water” and that it was probably going to be the last time he ever had the drink. The main feedback he gave on the bagels was how tough and filling they were. However, he did admit that they were not that bad.
💥EXCLUSIVE💥 I did it. Finally tried coffee and a bagel. For the #1st time in my life! What did I think? Watch the video to find out… Thanks to dating app @coffeembagel for introducing me to my first coffee and bagel. #CoffeeMeetsBagel #Ad pic.twitter.com/ybmLTo1d3F— ICE T (@FINALLEVEL) November 19, 2018
The video closed with Ice-T telling the audience: “I just tried something new – if you’re single and you want to try something new, download Coffee Meets Bagel.”
