Watch Ice T State His Case Against Coffee, Bagels on ‘Fallon’

Earlier in November, Ice T’s tweet admitting he’d never eaten a bagel went viral. So on Wednesday’s Tonight Show, the rapper-actor explained how the whole ordeal started.

An episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit required him to eat a bagel so he pretended to eat one for the show. On Twitter, a fan asked him about his bagel preference. He responded that he’s never eaten one. “Then everybody lost their goddamn mind,” he said. “Then I said, ‘I’ve never had coffee either.’ I’m from South Central. Could you imagine Snoop singing, ‘Rollin’ down the street, smokin’ indo, eatin’ some lox and bagels’?”

Ice T then detailed taking part in a video ad for the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel, for which he ate a bagel and drank coffee on-camera and reports that – he’s not a fan of either. “Basically, I ate one – and one bite, it felt like I ate a loaf of bread,” he said. “Why would I eat an unsweetened donut? I’m OK with it – coffee’s cool. I’m good. I like jelly donuts. Let’s keep it moving.”

“Black coffee – why would someone do that to themselves?” he continued, after some prodding from Fallon. “They put some cream, a little sugar – I got it. I prefer tea, not because my name is ‘Ice T.’ I just prefer tea. Black people like sweet stuff, just in case you didn’t know. We don’t drink unsweetened tea, stuff like that. White people do that.”
