Ice-t's Twitter Tirade Over Mann's Acting Critique
Rapper/actor ICE-T has slammed Grammy-winning singer Aimee Mann in a post on his Twitter page after she criticised his acting in LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT.
Singer/songwriter Mann took to her Twitter.com blog after watching an episode of the hit U.S. crime show, telling fans she can't understand how the hip-hop star - who has starred in the series for ten years - landed the high-profile role.
She wrote, "There is no reason anyone should have cast Ice T in a television show."
And after the rapper saw Mann's criticism, he retaliated with a foul-mouthed Twitter tirade.
He replied, "Hey Aimee Mann stop worrying bout (sic) my acting b**ch, and worry about your WACK a** music. In the mean time.. Eat a hot bowl of d**ks! Ice T."
Mann apologised for her comments in a reply to the rapper, writing in a subsequent post, "He's out there doing his job. He doesn't need any heckling from the peanut gallery. So, I am sorry, Mr. T! You get out there and DO IT! Plus, I do not like to hurt people's feelings. I forget that Twitter is not just me and four other dorky friends, ragging on TV stars."
