Native American Actors Walked Off Adam Sandler's 'Ridiculous Six' Set Over Script

Adam Sandler‘s Western film The Ridiculous Six is making headlines after twelve Native American actors walked off the set over depictions in the script on Wednesday (April 22).

It is rumored that the actors were offended because they thought the movie “misrepresented Apache culture.”

Netflix has come to the movie’s defense by saying, “The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous.”

The streaming service added, “It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of — but in on — the joke.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of the actors walking off The Ridiculous Six set?

    Yep, I’m guessing their gonna edit all that out. If people that are getting paid are offended, I’m sure people that are paying will be too.

    Why did they hire a consultant if they weren’t willing to make changes to the script???

    The thing that keeps jumping out at me is the way the publicist said “everyone involved is in on the joke,” when obviously everyone involved is NOT in on the joke, since a dozen people just walked off the set because of the joke. This is the worst publicist ever.

    If you remove all the degrading, sexist, racist, ageist, homophobic and misogynistic underpinnings from an Adam Sandler movie, then all you have left is Chandler mugging for the camera.
    Don’t get me wrong, I somewhat enjoy his movies, but I don’t use them as a behavioral guide. Besides, comedy would not exist without aggression, fear and derision.
    Simply refer to the ‘old saw’ :
    If I fall down, then it is a tragedy, but if YOU fall down, then it is a comedy.
