he has always been "as tough as an ox" and compared him to wrestling legend, Steve Austin. While giving insight into his battle, shewrote:
"The one that never EVER gets sick...He is having trouble breathing and feels like he is being stabbed with pins throughout his body."
In her emotional post, Coco cautioned people about taking the pandemic lightly. She warned the public to think twice about assuming that members of their family are unlikely to test positive for COVID-19.
As she sent prayers to her family, the "Ice Loves Coco" star revealed that two of her aunts also had the virus. She suspected that they all could have contracted it at the same time as her father.
Since Steve's diagnosis, Ice-T has been vocal in warning people about the pandemic. In one tweet, he urged people not to believe the conspiracy theories about COVID-19 being fake. In another tweet, he argued that wearing a face mask was comparable to a person's IQ.
