'Waterboy' Star Peter Dante

Violent Threats & Racial Slurs

'I'll Have Adam Sandler F**k You Up'

11/19/2013 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


"Waterboy" star Peter Dante -- who's been in just about every single Adam Sandler movie -- was thrown out of an L.A. hotel last week after calling a staffer a "n**ga" and a "f**got" ... and the craziest part, he admitted the whole thing on camera to TMZ.

Here's what we know ... Dante (who also played the weed dealer in "Grandma's Boy") was kicked out of the J.W. Marriott in Santa Monica early Friday morning after screaming at the overnight staff.

According to the hotel incident report, obtained by TMZ, Dante began screaming at staffers around 1AM because he wanted a new room key ... and was pissed that staffers didn't recognize him.

A staffer, who happened to be black, tried to help Dante ... but the actor exploded, telling one of his friends, "You better tell this n**ga to give me my fucking room key before I f*ck him up ... he clearly doesn't know who the f*ck I am."

Dante continued to berate the staffer -- "N**ga do you know who I am? I'm a black belt and you're a black person, I will f*ck you up."

He also directed his venom toward a Latino parking valet -- "Hey Mexican, this is Santa Monica, do you know where you are? We don't need you."

That's when Dante upped his threats by dropping some famous names -- the report states, "[Dante] threatened to have Suge Knight, Busta Rhymes and Adam Sandler come to my house and 'f*ck me up.'"

According to the report, Dante also ranted that he was part of the Hells Angels ... and bragged that he has major Santa Monica PD connections who "knew him very well and they weren't going to help me at all."

In fact, the report says when cops arrived, it became clear that one of the officers "knew Mr. Dante and had already taken his side." According to the report, the officer instructed a hotel staffer to give Dante a full refund ... but it's unclear if the staffer complied.

A rep for the SMPD tells TMZ ... "We deny the allegations. Nobody gets special treatment because of their status." The rep also pointed out they've arrested all sorts of famous people including Al Michaels and Josh Brolin.

As for Dante, he eventually left the property ... and just a few days later, TMZ found him strolling around L.A. When we asked him about the incident, Dante told us he drops the n-bomb all the time because his black friends, like NBA star Marcus Camby, are cool with it.

And after he tries to explain why he's not a hateful person ... Dante dropped yet ANOTHER slur -- telling us, "[think] I'm worried about Harvey Levin? You can suck my d*ck too you f**got."

Peter Dante is a stand up dude. If you wanted a mate to kick it with, and throw back a couple pints he would definitely be part of the entourage you went with. Maybe he had a moment, but the guy has been on this earth for 45 years, and this is the biggest dirt you can pull up on him. That's okay in my book. Now let's take a look at this "Hotel clerk" and dig in his closet, and let's see what kind of credibility that guy has.

now theres somebody who needsto grasp the PC rules of the game. In real life folk do throw terms like that around but if youre working in entertainment you gotta keep it zipped. Or youll never work again. Adam wont be calling him again thats for sure.

pc is out the window in nig i'm tellin ya. You cant have your rap and what not being a part of pop culture and keep saying nig in music and talking and expect it to be a black only word. its doesn't work that way. Black people are bringing the word into mainstream. instead of killing it off you are making it a common word all over the world. Congrats. Now get over it, You done it yourselves.
Similar to how the swastika has had its meaning changed a couple times in 3,000 years the symbol has been around. The word nig is right now in the process of becoming a regular word. How music flaunts it and how rappers use it constantly as they talk. just imagine how common hearing it will be in 3 years.
Gotta learn to be careful what you put out there

Not cool at all! I could understand the language at the hotel if he had been extremely stoned/very drunk, but in the light of day? Gays, blacks and Mexicans in one night? Very bad, indeed. This will come back to bite him in the ass big time.

The truth is coming out little by little. This issue never went away and now that's being shown everyday through encounters such as this. Interesting.

I wondered why I never heard of that person but then I noticed he was in Adam Sandler movies and that explained it.

..and here's a good example why no one should use these words .. and not expect that people who shouldn't use them do. If it's not ok for one person it's not ok for anyone
