Gene Simmons triggers Twitter debate with ice cubes in cereal, fans say 'yuck' and ask him to freeze milk instead
The best reaction, however, came from Gene's son Nick, who couldn't stop laughing about the entire fiasco
Rock singer Gene Simmons started 2020 on a rather controversial note when he posted a picture of his dessert regimen online. Known by his stage name The Demon, he took to Twitter on January 2 to reveal that he adds ice cubes to his milk and cereal.
Quizzing his fans and followers on social media, the bassist and co-lead singer of Kiss wrote, "Anyone else put ice cubes in their cereal?" He posted two pictures of frosted mini wheat and Oreo Os in a bowl of milk that also had ice cubes floating inside. No sooner did he share it online, a number of people seemed to be offended and thought it was simply distasteful.
His tweet was soon flooded with reactions full of disgust and revulsion for the "watered-down milk". "Why does he want watered-down milk? Yuck!" one tweet read and another said, "My man, I’m gonna need like a 15-minute play by play video on your cereal making process." One Twitter user said, "I seriously thought the little Oreos were black olive slices and I wondered, briefly, why nobody was focused on that. #relieved."
Meanwhile, one fan even had a suggestion for him. "Why not just freeze milk in an ice tray and use that so the milk won’t get watered down? I do this with coffee," he wrote. Another one chimed in, saying, "No we don't. We make our milk cold by putting it in a fridge."
The best reaction, however, came from Gene's son Nick, who couldn't stop laughing about the entire fiasco and posted, "30 years watching him do this. This is my life."
The singer, who co-founded his rock band with lead singer and rhythm guitarist Paul Stanley in the early 1970s, also got several peculiar food suggestions, post his breakfast confession. One fan posted a picture with beer in his cereals and another posted, "I put ice cubes on my cinnamon bun but just for fun!"
