Ice-T Says 'Law & Order' Has 'Tried to Be as Fair as It Can Possibly Be'

Ice-T is opening up about his hit NBC series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

During a new interview, the 62-year-old actor explained why he thinks his show has stayed on the air for so long.

“[Law & Order has] tried to be as fair as it can possibly be,” Ice-T shared with Page Six. “You have got the black gang bangers, but you have also got the black judge, you’ve got the black attorney.”

Ice-T has portrayed NYPD Detective/Sergeant Odafin Tutuola for 20 seasons. The show has been on air for 21 seasons, since 2000.

Ice-T also did admit that SVU also tends to “romanticize” the job of a cop.

“I am wearing Gucci,” Ice-T added. “Mariska [Hargitay] is wearing designer clothes. Cops can’t afford to do that, so in a way we romanticize that job when it’s not that romantic.”

If you missed it, Law & Order showrunner Warren Leight said the show will address the George Floyd protests and police brutality in the upcoming 22nd season.
