Set aside your “celebrities are just like us” file. Ice-T recently declared on his Twitter page that he had never, ever eaten a bagel in his whole entire life.

The rap musican/actor’s bold confession, which has garnered more than 3,500 retweets, nearly 19,000 likes and close to 1,000 comments since it was posted on Friday, came in response to a question that drifted his way from the Twittersphere, “While we're on the subject what is your favorite bagel?”

“Lol. I’ve never eaten a Bagel in my life...” Ice-T replied.

Shock, horror and expressions of support ensued.

Also doubt and evidence to the contrary.

“You had a cinnamon raisin one on SVU,” tweeted someone named Kimberly, referring to Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, the TV show in which Ice-T has played Detective Odafin Tutuola for 18 years.

But Ice-T waved that off: “Lol. TV is make believe,” he wrote, prompting much discussion of “stunt” and “prop” bagels.

After a brief diversion to name his favorite drink (“Grape Kool aid..”), Ice-T returned to the subject of bagels, which his followers never actually left.

“White people.. Don’t lose your … minds because I’ve never eaten a Bagle.. Take it easy.... lol,” he wrote, underscoring his disdain for the beloved bread product by not even bothering to spell it correctly.

After observing that “Twitter must be bored … today….” Ice-T naughtily further fanned the flames of fury, tweeting, “I’ve never drank a cup of Coffee either… Go CRAZY!!!”

Not surprisingly, people did. The coffee post racked up 1.5K comments, 2.7K retweets and 20K likes – and probably netted as many “lols” from Ice-T, who was clearly enjoying the uproar.

Eventually, he threw a crumb to those worried about his morning food intake.

“I do like jelly doughnuts!” he said.

Terrific. Can we all move on now?
