Vanilla Ice Defends Adam Sandler's Jokes About Native Americans In 'Ridiculous 6'

By HHL Editors

Over the weekend, a group of Native American actors and extras walked off the set of the Adam Sandler movie The Ridiculous 6 because they found parts of the script offensive.

Vanilla Ice, who is playing Mark Twain in the movie, defended the script.

"It's a comedy. I don’t think anybody really had any ill feeling or any intent or anything. This movie isn't Dances With Wolves," Vanilla, who says he's part Choctaw Indian, told TMZ. "They’re just making a funny movie."

The extras who walked out apparently didn't like that Indian characters are given names like Beaver Breath and Sits-on-Face. The puns continue with with silly  dialogue like "How about after this, we go someplace, and I put my peepee in your teepee?"

Another example of the dialogue which may have offended the Native American actors is when a female character reveals her name to be Sits-on-Face and then a male character says "Well then I'm Stiff-in-Pants!"

The Ridiculous 6 is set to be released exclusively on Netflix in 2016.

Do you agree with Vanilla that the jokes were all in good fun, or did you find them offensive?
