Ice-T had a shocking revelation to make after one of his Twitter followers asked him about a scene in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” in which Det. Fin Tutuola eats a cinnamon-raisin bagel. Asked the fan, why cinnamon-raisin?
In response, the rapper/actor insisted that it was because that’s what had been written in the script, following up by revealing he’s “never eaten a Bagel in my life…”
When another follower pointed out that he ate one on “L&O”, Ice-T reminded that “TV is make believe.”
He was quickly deluged with tweets from unbelieving fans who were flabbergasted that someone who’s played a TV cop for nearly 20 years — in New York City, no less! — has never sampled a bagel, prompting some further responses (including pointing out that “Twitter must be bored as F today”).
Then, he had another even more shocking revelation to drop:
