Gene Simmons had a lot to say about the reaction to him asking via Twitter, “Anyone else put ice cubes in their cereal?”
TMZ caught up with the KISS bassist who said, “I was f-cking having cereal for breakfast and my daughter, who’s always snooping around — we were up in Canada — she asked me, ‘Dad, what are you doing?’ I said, ‘What am I doing? I am having goddamn cereal. That’s what I’m doing.’ ‘But, dad, you’re putting ice cubes in the cereal.’ [I said], ‘Well, yeah, who wants lukewarm milk with your cereal?”
He continued and said of the online reaction, “That makes a lot of sense, ’cause [North Korean supreme leader] Kim Jong Un and the rest of the world — and Mr. Putin [Russian President Vladimir Putin] and all the rest — that’s not controversy. What I had for breakfast — whether there’s ice in it or not — is earth-shaking.”
The clip below ends with Gene eating an absolutely gigantic bowl of Shredded Wheat and Oreo O’s cereal at some sort of diner complete with milk and ice cubes. Perhaps this reaction clip was more than a bit staged, but leave it to Gene to get us all to watch this sort of thing.
