Rap music star and actor Ice T became the target of liberal outrage after inadvertently sharing an image related to a “conspiracy theory.”

The 61-year-old musician and record-producer fired back at social media critics who attacked him for tweeting a quote on Monday that bore an image with a fiery Q letter, apparently a reference to QAnon which alleges schemes involving Democrats and liberals.

The rapper, whose real name is Tracy Lauren Marrow, asserted that he “just liked the quote” after liberals unloaded on him for posting the image.

“Never Interfere With an Enemy While He’s in the Process of Destroying Himself,” the quote he tweeted read and was accompanied with a caption in which he wrote: “Daily Game: Let the Haters dig their own graves….. #2020.”

The tweet was apparently deleted though Ice T claimed ignorance about the so-called conspiracy of an alleged secret plot by the “deep state” against President Trump and his supporters.

Twitter users instantly jumped on the tweet, slamming the apparent promotion – intentional or not – of QAnon.

This sparked a war of words between Twitter users.

But the responses prompted Ice T to fire back, at first clarifying that he did not know what the fuss was about and that he just liked the quote.

“I have no idea what that is… I just liked the quote,” he wrote.

But the criticism continued as he refused to delete the tweet and,  getting angrier at the blowback, continued to unload on those commenting on this thread.

At one point, he told one user to “eat a d**k.”

“You sound stupid,” he said to another user. “If it bums you that I posted a quote connected to some Si-Fi s**t I don’t even know about.. You take Twitter WAY to serious..”

While some Twitter users applauded what they thought was the rapper’s support for QAnon, others suggested he was the source himself.

Ice T’s Twitter feed eventually seemed to fill up with more family-related tweets and less controversial comments, though he did post some final thoughts.
