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

“I’m from South Central. Could you imagine Snoop singing, ‘Rollin’ down the street, smokin’ indo, eatin’ some lox and bagels’?”

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.”
