Native American Extras Leave the Set of Adam Sandler Film over Insults

Adam Sandler’s latest film, “The Ridiculous Six”, which is meant to be a spoof of the film “The Magnificent Seven”, is currently in production. AnastasiaDate confirms that the film is being made as a direct-to-Netflix film and stars Adam Sandler, Jon Lovitz, Nick Nolte, Steve Buscemi, Vanilla Ice, and Taylor Lautner (see pics on Instagram).

Recently, “The Ridiculous Six” ran into some issues with the Native Americans that were cast as extras in the film. According to the story on Indian Country Today Media Network, the extras walked off the set due to, what they felt, were insults to the Native Americans.

One of the actors, Loren Anthony who belongs to the Navajo Nation, said that he left the set after problems over how the Native Americans were being portrayed. He said that the film got the costumes and hairstyles wrong, and that he did not appreciate the way that women were being treated in the film. He said that two women in the film were called Beaver’s Breath and No Bra, which he found insulting. Anthony also said that the production team on the film were not listening to the Native Americans who were asking for them to change some things.

Happy Madison Productions, who are producing the film, have not yet commented on the walk off.
