Rapper Ice-T is tired of fighting. He’s tired of hiding. He is who he is: A 60-year-old man who has never eaten a bagel and never intends to eat one. He said as much on social media today, sending Bagel Twitter into a fit:
White people.. Don’t lose your Fn minds because I’ve never eaten a Bagle.. Take it easy…. lol— ICE T (@FINALLEVEL) November 9, 2018
T, whose runs his social media accounts with an iron fist (seriously, if you don’t follow him you should, he’s incredibly charming) doesn’t beat around the bush — it’s whites and whites alone who abdicate control of their minds when they hear about his no-bagel diet. Graciously, he reminds white people to simply take it easy. Considering a lot of these white people must be Jews, we feel this is easier said than done.
It’s brave of the tastemaker to come forward with this admission. Doughy carb hunks boiled and dusted with specks just aren’t everyone’s cup of (iced) tea.
