The Ying Yang Twins were performing alongside Vanilla Ice at the Ozark Empire Fair, which stirred up some controversy last week.
According to the Kansas City Star, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mark McCloskey used a photo of Vanilla Ice for his campaign on Thursday (July 28) without permission.
The advertisement referenced an upcoming performance by Vanilla Ice and the Ying Yang Twins at the Ozark Empire Fair and encouraged visitors to “join team McCloskey.”
In the ad, McCloskey is pictured beside the “Ice Ice Baby” rapper above a banner that read: “Featuring Vanilla Ice and Ying Yang Twins.” The ad was shared on the campaign’s website and various social media accounts, prompting Vanilla Ice’s manager to issue a statement.
“Vanilla Ice is not taking sides on political issues and is working to support his family,” his managers said. “Please make this known.”
When reached by phone, McCloskey denied it was his intention to make it look like Vanilla Ice was supporting his campaign: “(We’re) merely saying that we’re going to be there at a time when they’re going to be there. No relationship whatsoever.”
