Rapper and DIY Network reality TV star Vanilla Ice did not keep his cool after being told he had missed a flight in Atlanta on Monday.

The Wellington resident, whose real name is Robert Van Winkle, recently started a concert tour and was apparently headed to Nebraska.

"Stop, collaborate and listen" may be what Vanilla Ice preaches... but does he put the 90s rap mantra into practice? Not according to some fellow flyers at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, who said the former rap star threw a "temper tantrum" after missing a flight.

"No one said anything! You can't cut me off this flight," Vanilla Ice tells the desk agent in video taken by a witness.

Mr. Ice really seems to lose it when a fellow flyer tells him, "You gotta watch the monitor, dude."

Redditors had fun with the video, recreating his 90s hit with their own twists.

For his part, Ice laughed the incident off, offering the following reactions on Twitter.
