Ice-T has been a television staple, playing investigator Odafin Tutuola on the long-running show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. During last week's episode of the procedural show, Ice-T's character offered Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) a little bit of his cinnamon raisin bagel, prompting Twitter users to ask what Ice-T's actual favorite bagel was. The answer he gave drove the internet to absolute madness.



Twitter immediately lost their cool.





How has Ice-T not had the chance to even try a bagel?


Several users pointed out that his character on Law and Order: SVU loves bagels. T's answer was plain and simple:

Meanwhile, Ice-T's claim that he'd never had a bagel was making headlines everywhere, prompting the hashtag #BAGELGATE, with many people attempting to prove T had, in fact, eaten a bagel at some point in his life.



Ice-T himself even weighed in on the investigation with a video of his character NOT eating a bagel created by Vulture.

He was also thoroughly weirded out by the immense interest in his bagel-related habits.


Ice-T was never expecting things to get this out of hand.

To continue trolling his fanbase, he baited them with another insane claim:

Though, honestly, it seems like people were more concerned about bagels than coffee.

For one glorious day, the internet united around #BAGELGATE. Ice-T may not have understood, but many people were glad they were along for the journey.







Has Ice-T truly never eaten a bagel? While it's impossible to prove a negative, it doesn't seem likely that he'd lie about something like this! But if there is a reason, you can be sure #BAGELGATE investigators will find it!

You know, I've seen countless "no texting while driving campaigns" and I agree with the premise. I think it is dangerous not to have your eyes on the road. That's how accidents happen. With that said, don't car manufacturers think it's counterintuitive to include touchscreens instead of knobs or dials in new cars these days? You have to take your eyes off the road to adjust anything. I think it's hazardous, especially if you happen to be driving in inclement weather.

After Redditor TheTenthDimension asked the online community, "What's your best example of 'Whoever designed this must not use their own product'?" people shared some suggestions.

If only all the things we excelled at were also the very things we loved to do most. But sadly, that is not the way it goes.

Instead, some horrible force of the universe made you way better at, say, sewing the holes of pants than playing guitar. The universe can be a spiteful, fickle jerk.

In a perfect world, family has your back harder than anyone else.

In the real world, it can sometimes be your family that cuts deeper than anyone else. Intentional or not, the people closest to you have the ability to seriously super suck.

No, you're not the only one who has dealt with a mom who just, for the life of themselves, can't NOT be critical. Or a dad who just always seemed chronically underwhelmed by you.

Society is an odd conundrum when you attempt to wrap your head around it. This phenomena typically occurs whenever you witness a new trend or share experience and everyone seems to go along with it. Only much later, when you think about it with a bit of critical thinking, do you notice something might be off.

Going against society can be strained, difficult, like pulling back a sticker that's been on way too long, however sometimes it's necessary to get rid of what we probably shouldn't be so welcoming of.
