“Law & Order: SVU” star Ice-T is not afraid to come after “trolls” on social media. Especially when it means defending his family.
The rapper and actor has almost 2 million followers on Twitter alone, meaning hundreds of thousands of people see his posts every day. And not all of his followers like what he has to say.
The “Law & Order” star is known for posting his “ICE Cold Facts,” a series of philosophical sayings that express Ice-T’s thoughts and wisdom. He’ll post multiple “Cold Facts” a week, sometimes per day, depending on his mood.
Earlier today, Ice-T presented his latest “Cold Fact” via Twitter. It was a relatively simple and straightforward fact, reading, “Jealousy will have people hating on someone that they should be learning from.”
In the replies, one fan commented, “Not sure that I’m jealous of a 5 yr old breastfeeding,” with a winky face. The response is in reference to Ice-T’s wife Coco Austin recently revealing that she still breastfeeds their five-year-old daughter, Chanel. This is where the Twitter bloodbath began.
Ice-T Calls Out Followers for “Hating” On His Wife Coco Austin
The “Law & Order” star refused to let the comment slide. He emphatically quote tweeted the fan’s message about not being jealous.
This caused another follower to respond to Ice-T by calling his comment “sexual and gross” and stating, “a 5 year old shouldn’t still be breastfeeding. Way to make it weird, guy.” That’s when Ice-T went off.
“Why the F are you worried about MY Child??? That’s what’s weird.. Now go back in the basement,” the “Law & Order” star wrote. This led him to post a general message for all of his fans about Coco’s decision to keep breastfeeding Chanel.
“News Flash! We feed Chanel FOOD… She just likes to suck moms boob every now and then… Me Too!!!” Ice-T posted, along with a photo of Chanel leaning on Coco’s breasts in a selfie.
Ice-T continued to tweet about the incident this afternoon, calling several people “clowns.” Eventually, he posted a second “ICE Cold Fact” of the day. “ICE Cold Fact: Once you start giving a F about people’s opinions….. It’s a Wrap.”
‘Law & Order: SVU” Star Ice-T’s Wife Coco Austin Speaks Up for Breastfeeding Daughter
On Saturday, Coco Austin sat down with Us Weekly to talk about her decision to keep breastfeeding her five-year-old daughter. While most mothers finish breastfeeding their child within the first year or so after birth, some continue with it into toddler years.
“Chanel still likes my boobs,” Austin told Us Weekly. “It’s a big bonding moment for a mother and your child.”
Like the “Law & Order” star said, Chanel still eats other food, like “steak and hamburgers.” But according to Austin, the little girl “likes a little snack every now and then.”
“Why take that away from her? … If she doesn’t want it, all right, that’s where you stop it. But I’m not just going to say no,” Austin insisted.
