Native American extras found the humor so offensive in Adam Sandler’s move, “The Ridiculous SIx”, that they quit.

Details about the film are scant. We know that it is apparently a parody of the classic Western The Magnificent Seven; we also know that a portion of the film features portrayals of American Indians so offensive that a dozen Native actors, including the film’s “cultural advisor,” straight-up walked off the set yesterday.

Per Indian Country Today Media Network, here are some of the retrograde jokes that prompted the American Indian extras—most of whom are members of the Navajo Nation—to ditch the movie:

The examples of disrespect included Native women’s names such as Beaver’s Breath and No Bra, an actress portraying an Apache woman squatting and urinating while smoking a peace pipe, and feathers inappropriately positioned on a teepee.
Two extras interviewed by ICTMN’s Vincent Schilling said they were initially uneasy about participating in the film, but were assured by Sandler’s producers that the portrayals would not be racist. That promise was quickly revealed as a lie.

    This is what passes for humor in Adam Sandler’s world.

    More typical low brow, second rate “humor” from Mr. Abbie-Doobie himself. I have yet to see one of his cinematic travesties and be entertained.

    I still trying to figure out who in Hollywood thinks, or ever thought, that Sandler was funny to start with. He’s one of several, so called comedians, that are anything but funny.
