Vanilla Ice has come to the defence of Adam Sandler's new comedy western 'The Ridiculous Six'.
The 47-year-old rapper, who stars as Mark Twain in the much-discussed new movie, has hit back at critics of the filmmaker after it emerged the script features derogatory depictions of Native Americans.
He said: ''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 think. I don't have anything to do with it. I just play my part.''
He did, however, say that as he is ''part Choctaw'', he can see both sides of the issue.
Last week, Netflix issued a statement claiming that no one should feel disrespected by the film's content.

''It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularised, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of - but in on - the joke.''
