Vanilla Ice defends Adam Sandler's Ridiculous Six plus jokes from the script

Native Americans aren't happy at all about Adam Sandler's THE RIDICULOUS SIX, but one of the film's stars has spoken out in support of the upcoming comedy. Vanilla Ice (who also appeared in Sandler's THAT'S MY BOY) is playing Mark Twain in the Netflix movie, and TMZ asked the actor/rapper/home flipper to share his thoughts about the actors claiming that the film is derogatory to Native Americans.

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' — it's a comedy. They're not there to showcase anything about anybody — they're just making a funny movie...I am part Choctaw Indian, so I see both sides, but you know, it is what it is.

Indian Country Today has released a video of the Native American actors confronting one of the producers and other crew members, and Defamer has also posted several excerpts from a 2012 draft of the script. If the final script is anything like this version, I can definitely see why the Native American actors decided to walk off of the set of the film.

In my opinion, this isn't about Millennials being "soft" or political correctness gone mad. I don't think THE RIDICULOUS SIX is taking satire too far, but those jokes above are lazy, dumb, and just aren't funny. Do you think this controversy will go away, or does Netflix have a real issue on its hands?

THE RIDICULOUS SIX will be released on Netflix sometime in 2016.

um, thats not the script...

that excerpt has nothing to do with the current movie. there is no Sits on Face, there is no naked peeing peace pipe scene and i am pretty sure this script is from a 2012 draft sandler wrote thinking this was going to be Nick Swardsons next movie after Bucky. once Bucky bombed, this 2012 script was canned and now that Sandler is starring in it, he rewrote like 99% of it.

I don't know whether Vanilla Ice (if that is his real name) is really part Choctaw Indian or he's just making shit up, but he did try very hard to be black ...

Well, this is depressing.

I should've taken up screenwriting at 12 obviously. That has to be seriously some of the worst dialogue and infantile humor I've seen. Even with a multi-film contract didn't someone have to ok this first? C'mon Sandler, at least try for Christ's sake.

I think he is trying. He needs to do another drama esque movie.

If that's the best they got

then the suits at Netflix need to have their heads examined. This shows every sign of turning into a major cluster-fuck. And Netflix was doing so well, too . . .

Well Netflixs major problem is that they gave a contract to Adam Sandler.

Well if Vanilla Ice says its ok, who I am to argue

Btw, calling it a comedy doesn't excuse racism. But maybe it plays better than it reads?

The script must have been written by Chief No-Spell-Check. I hope the people who write this stuff don't think they are being provocative in some kind of edgy way, but when your brain stops developing in middle school this is what you get.

English isn't my native language...

... and even I know "Stole" doesn't have a "D" at the end. Writing bad jokes is already a reflection of lazyness; spelling mistakes highlight that. By the way, I didn't know scripts included indications for MPAA ratings.

Okay, I get it that this movie is a comedy. But that short excerpt from the script is just, like Half said below, enough to shut this movie down. Even shut it down for good.

That dialogue is such utter shit. But this being a Sandler production and all shouldn't be a surprise.
