 Fox News Channel anchor  Shepard Smith, might disagree with Vanilla Ice. He’s received backlash on social media for his remarks on the storm.

“This moves 20 miles to the west you and everyone you know are dead; all of you; because you can't survive,” said the anchor. “It's not possible; unless you're very very lucky; and your kids die too!”
