Ice-T Claims He's Never Eaten A Bagel—And 'Law & Order SVU' Fans Are Not Okay 😮

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!
