Ice-T took to his Twitter account to air out his frustrations with racial injustices and people who don't recognize the plight of marginalized communities.
Throughout the entirety of his decadeslong career, Ice-T has always stood up for injustices against marginalized groups. The rap icon gave us "Cop Killer" with Body Count, and while he plays a detective on television as a long-standing character on Law & Order: SVU, in real life, Ice-T will march alongside anyone who opposes violent or oppressive forces implemented by the boys in blue.

On Wednesday (May 27), in the wake of the police-involved murder of George Floyd, Ice-T took to his Twitter account to share his anger. "ICE Cold Fact: If you wanna get someone Mad about Racism, Sexism, etc…… Tell em it Doesn’t Exist," the rapper said. "This kills me: People say.. 'You made it! You’re successful! I’m White and I’m still struggling.. So there must not be any racism!!' Smh... I was watching a movie and a man asked another if he was racist.. His answer was… 'It depends what Race..' I think that sums up America."
Recently, Tekashi 6ix9ine pointed out that Ice-T's character is an officer after the rapper vocalized his displeasure with the rainbow-haired star. Ice-T made sure to include those who may criticize him for the same thing in his Twitter rant. "I play a Cop on TV… But I’ll NEVER stop speaking about injustice… EVER. F that." Ice-T capped off his series of tweets by writing, "If ANYTHING I Tweet offends you…. Please UNFOLLOW.. It’s that simple.. Have a nice day." Read through the rap legend's tweets below.
