(GEMS RADIO) – Ice-T is receiving backlash from a section of Twitter users who are accusing him of promoting violence in his music. The rapper had just tweeted how he was lost for words in the aftermath of the Robb Elementary school shooting, where 19 children and two adults lost their lives

“I haven’t commented on the Shooting because I still can’t get my head around why MFs wanna kill innocent Children… I’m lost for words. It’s SO Fd up.”

Twitter User Bashes Ice-T

One user going by @BraveStanSzn took issue with Ice-T’s post, calling it hypocritical given Ice-T’s discography

“You have a song called COP KILLER,” wrote @BraveStan. “You promoted gangster rap and criminality for year. You bragged about trying to steal someones wheels when you first made it on Conan. You aren’t the one to have a moral high horse.”

To which Ice-T brazenly responded “Please eat more d*cks.”

The rapper followed up by saying, “I love when suckaz get mad at me the call me Old, which is true, based on their age. And Washed Up.. They might wanna Google that one. Lol.”

Almost Lost Endorsement Because Of “Cop Killer” Persona

For over two decades, the rapper starred in the famous crime drama; Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. He also bagged a couple of endorsement deals while still a rapper and a family man.

The rapper has in the past openly spoken of how his “Cop Killer” persona almost ruined his endorsements.

It was difficult because I’m the cop killer,” Ice-T said . “Everybody in the mainstream was like, ‘They won’t f*ck with you because you’re too taboo.’ And I was like, ‘Right.’ And then Snoop started knocking down walls. That’s my brother. So Snoop was going through doors and I’m like, ‘Look, Snoop’s making it through these doors, let’s try.’

“So the first big one I got was the GEICO commercial with the lemonade. The advertising world was watching and there was no blowback. From there, I did RXBARs, CarShield. You see, people don’t understand but if you look at Shaq, like the one he does for The General, that could be eight to $10 million a year. The numbers aren’t bullshit. You know that bitch Flo from Progressive? Trust me, she lives in a mansion. Flo is caked out.”
