Gene Simmons kicked off 2020 with quite the controversial tweet.

The rocker took to Twitter on Thursday (Jan. 2) to reveal that he adds ice to his milk and cereal. "Anyone else put ice cubes in their cereal?" he simply asked alongside photos of his concoction: Frosted Mini Wheats and Oreo O’s in a bowl of milk, with a number of large ice cubes floating around.

The result was a flooded comment section filled with people who were disgusted at the idea of watered down milk, and others who have been adding ice to their go-to breakfast their whole lives.

Gene's son Nick even chimed in, hilariously lamenting that he's experienced "30 years watching him do this. This is my life."
