Ice T is the subject of some hilarious scrutiny for his breakfast habits, after admitting he never had a bagel or coffee before joining Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. The 60-year-old actor and his costar Mariska Hargitay stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday and discussed how Ice T's disinterest in bagels was exposed and why he really doesn't think it matters.
Ice T explained that fans on Twitter went into an uproar earlier this month after finding out he had never eaten a bagel or had coffee. "Everybody lost their godd*mn minds," Ice T told Fallon. "I don't know why that's so hard for people to believe."
Eventually, he gave the food and drink combo a try during a commercial for the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel. Let's just say, he wasn't impressed. "One bite, it felt like I ate a loaf of bread," he explained. Ice T doesn't understand why people make such a big deal out of his breakfast tastes, and frankly, neither does Mariska. "I didn't understand why people cared if Ice had a bagel or not," she admitted. Watch the video above to see Ice T's full (hilarious) rundown of the recent events, plus details of their 20-year friendship from Mariska's point of view. Let's hope for many more interviews, and episodes, featuring these two.
