Ice-T has made it loud and clear that he’s not beefing with fellow Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star Christopher Meloni.
The West Coast legend took to Twitter on Monday (January 16) to share an e-mail he received informing him that National Enquirer was working on a story about an apparent feud between him and Meloni.
The email referenced rumors that the veteran rapper/actor “has grown envious of the attention that Mr. Meloni has received since coming back” and sought a comment from Ice-T.
In his tweet, Ice-T wasted no time in setting the record straight by clarifying there is no bad blood between him and his co-star, while calling whoever made up the rumors “Clownass MFs.”
“Just sent this email over to my guy @Chris_Meloni,” he wrote. “Clownass MFs trying to make up Drama outta thin air… WOW… MFs are really on that BS.”
Christopher Meloni also jumped on Twitter and dismissed the rumors, sarcastically claiming Ice-T was nice enough to let him know there was friction between them.
“So…@FINALLEVEL was sent this. He was kind enough to let me know we were feuding,” he tweeted.

Christopher Meloni joined the Law & Order franchise in 1999 for its award-winning Special Victims Unit series as the legendary character Detective Elliot Stabler. Ice-T signed on in 2000 to play Sergeant Fin Tutuola and found major success because of it.
Ice-T became one of the longest-running male actors on television when he hit 456 Law & Order episodes last October. He only trails behind Law & Order cornerstone actress Mariska Hargitay (Captain Olivia Benson), who has starred in a record 538 episodes.
The O.G. Original Gangster rapper shared a post on Twitter at the time celebrating the huge accomplishment, writing: “Longest running male actor in TV History. Don’t tell me what CANT be done.”
Prior to becoming the second most revered character on SVU, Ice-T had small roles starring in 1980s classic Breakin’ and its sequels Breakin’: Electric Boogaloo and Rappin’. He landed his first major starring role as police detective Scotty Appleton in the 1991 film New Jack City and appeared in other films before finding a home with SVU.
While he called out the National Enquirer, Ice-T had the same approach to internet trolls earlier this month. He took to Twitter to give his two cents on people who create fake accounts online and told them they need to re-evaluate their lives.
“FYI: If you go through all the trouble to make a FAKE page on Social Media…. JUST to talk shit to people………?! You TRULY need to reevaluate your life,” he wrote.
In a follow-up tweet, Ice-T let new followers know that such brutal criticism is commonplace. “New people say ‘Wow, you say alotta very Cold things…’ Well my name is MFn ICE,” he added.
