Last week, we had fun chiming in on how Sundance 2016 might look like with our Sundance predictions list. Our series was exactly one short from the promised 75.

While the controversy around Adam Sandler's Ridiculous 6 continues to swell due to its portrayal of Native Americans, an unlikely ally has spoken out in support of Sandler: Vanilla Ice. The Cool as Ice rapper, who starred alongside Sandler in the 2012 comedy That's My Boy and will appear as Mark Twain in Ridiculous 6, defended the comedian against the Native American actors who left the Netflix production because they felt it was perpetuating negative stereotypes.
