Vanilla Ice is preparing to hold a 4th of July concert in Austin, Texas for an audience of 2,500 fans. Tickets will range between $25 for general admission on up to $300 for VIP seating. And all I can think about is how it would feel to be stuck in the ICU three weeks later, gasping for air, and thinking about how you’re on your way out because you went to a damn Vanilla Ice concert during the peak of a pandemic.

The state of Texas is closing some beaches for the 4th of July. Bars statewide have been ordered closed by Governor Greg Abbott after record-setting days in new coronavirus cases. But none of that is stopping Vanilla Ice, real name Robert Matthew Van Winkle, from pushing forward with his concert.

The performance will be held at Emerald Point Bar & Grill on Lake Travis and the venue holds 5,000 but they’re only selling 2,500 tickets which means everything will be 1000000% safe, right??? Vanilla Ice DGAF. He took to Instagram to proclaim htat he misses the 90s because it was the last great decade and not because it was the last time he was culturally relevant in any way, shape, or form:

I can’t wait to get back to this. The 90s were the best. We didn’t have coronavirus, or cell phones, or computers.
we had 5.0‘s, blockbuster, Beavis and Butthead, Wayne’s world, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan.
And Mortal Kombat is still better than fortnight but we got out of the house, We danced, we invented house parties in the 90s. The last of the great decades #IMissThenineties

You might not be surprised to learn that Vanilla Ice and his plans to move forward with his 4th of July concert are getting torched on Twitter. Let’s check out how the people of America feel about Vanilla’s plans to hold a large event that puts thousands at risk:

Texas recorded 8,076 new cases on Wednesday. Hospitals in Houston are already so full that patients are having to be shuffled to hospitals elsewhere. There are currently over 6,900 people hospitalized in Texas with COVID-19 compared to 2,000 just three weeks ago.

Maybe holding this concert during a pandemic was the only possible way Vanilla Ice could get people to start talking about him again? Perhaps the plan is working masterfully as news of this event has been picked up by nearly every media outlet in America with everyone questioning why TF this is happening.
