Two fundamental rules for Twitter: First, remember that anyone can read your Tweets (unless you’ve made them private). And lastly, don’t criticize Ice-T’s acting skills. That’s pretty much it. Aimee Mann learned these rules the hard way after she Tweeted this:
The “hot” modifier seems especially mean and gratuitous. Mann spent her next few Tweets backpedaling, concluding with, “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!” In the original Tweet, Mann was likely referring to a late-night episode of Law and Order: SVU, since it’s on TV at any given hour, on one network or another. Ice-T’s been on the show since 2000, but he also put in pretty good performances in New Jack City and (especially) Tank Girl.
