Producer Told Native American Actors On The Set Of Ridiculous Six To Leave
New cell phone footage has emerged showing an unidentified producer telling Native American actors on the set of the new Adam Sandler's movie to leave the set of the shoot if they find the jokes insensitive.
Last week on Wednesday, a dozen Native American actors left the set of Ridiculous Six, Adam Sandler's movie, after complaining that the jokes which were used in the movie were racially offensive stereotypes jokes. One of the Native American actors in the new footage can be heard telling the producer that, 'You're trying to tell a Native what's disrespectful?'
Some of the Native American actors who walked off the stage include Navajo natives who complained about characters being called Beaver's Breath, as well as Wears No Bra. In addition to that they also complained about a scene in the movie where an Apache woman is being forced to urinate while squatting and at the same time smoking a peace pipe.
Lorenz Anthony, who is among the Navajo natives who walk out the set, said that, 'There were about a dozen of us who walked off the set."
'I was asked a long time ago to do some work on this and I wasn't down for it,' Anthony told the Indian Country Today Media Network. He added that, "they told me it was going to be a comedy, but it would not be racist.
'So I agreed to it but on Monday things started getting weird on the set,' he added.
Alison Young, another Native American Actor who walked off the stage, said that, 'We talked to the producers about our concerns." 'They just told us, 'If you guys are so sensitive, you should leave.'
