Vanilla Ice Has Come To Adam Sandler’s Defense Over ‘Ridiculous Six’

This might come as something of a surprise, but the rapper who once appropriated the melody of another artist’s song, sans credit, is not coming off as sympathetic to the sensitivities of an entire people who had their land stolen from them. You see, Vanilla Ice appears in Adam Sandler’s The Ridiculous Six, the Netflix “comedy” which has had Native American actors walk off set in protest of jokes in extremely poor taste made at the expensive of their heritage.

TMZ caught up with Ice at LAX and asked him what he thought of the controversy, and the rapper — who says he is part Choctaw — doesn’t see what the big deal is, via Variety:

“It’s a comedy,” he said. “I don’t think anybody really had any ill feeling or any intent or anything. This movie isn’t ‘Dances With Wolves.’ It’s a comedy. They’re not there to showcase anything about anybody — they’re just making a funny movie, I think.”

“I don’t have anything to do with it,” he added. “I just play my part.”

With lines like, “Say, honey. How ’bout after this, we go someplace and I put my pee-pee in your teepee?” I don’t think there will be any confusion between The Ridiculous Six and Dances with Wolves, but if there’s a bright side to this whole thing, it’s that those racist Looney Tunes from the ’50s and ’60s don’t seem so bad anymore!
