‘Waterboy’ Actor Peter Dante Admits To Racist Rant
The Waterboy star Peter Dante has admitted to using racial slurs at a black employee in an L.A. hotel, claiming that he uses the N-word regularly because he has black friends and they’re okay with it. Dante, an actor who has appeared in most of Adam Sandler’s movies, was kicked out of the J.W. Marriott in Santa Monica last weekend after his racist tirade at the overnight staff.
A hotel incident report claimed that Dante was upset because he wanted a new room key and employees didn’t recognize him. “You better tell this ni**a to give me my f*cking room key before I f*ck him up. He clearly doesn’t know who the f*ck I am,” the actor allegedly said. “Ni**a do you know who I am? I’m a black belt and you’re a black person. I will f*ck you up.” The employee who filed the report also stated that “[Dante] threatened to have Suge Knight, Busta Rhymes and Adam Sandler come to my house and f*ck me up.”
Dante also used slurs directed at Mexicans and gay people. He reportedly told a Latino parking valet, “Hey Mexican, this is Santa Monica. Do you know where you are? We don’t need you.” After being questioned about the incident by TMZ, he said, “You [think] I’m worried about Harvey Levin? You can suck my d*ck too, you fa**ot.”
The actor most recently had a small role in last year’s Adam Sandler flick Grown Ups 2. He has also appeared in several other Sandler flicks including That’s My Boy, Big Daddy, and The Wedding Singer.
