Producer Of Adam Sandler’s Ridiculous Six Tells “Overly Sensitive” Native Americans They Can “Leave” (VIDEO)
A producer from Adam Sandler’s upcoming Netflix film the Ridiculous Six was caught on tape telling Native American actors if they’re “overly sensitive” about the jokes in the movie, they “should probably leave.” See the video below.
As Gossip Cop previously reported, a number of Native Americans walked off the set after protesting the screenplay, which included naming two female characters “Beaver’s Breath” and “No Bra,” and a scene in which a woman is urinating while smoking a peace pipe.
In the new video uploaded to YouTube on Friday, a producer is heard refusing to change the script, despite the objections of the actors, who repeatedly call parts of the film “disrespectful.” After one of the actors loudly protests, “We don’t need to to sell out our people,” a Ridiculous Six producer responds, “I understand completely, but we’re not changing ‘Beaver Breath.'”
Another member of the film’s crew says, “We have a lot to lose. Adam Sandler is playing a person that loves you guys. He’s the hero,”Still, despite the plea of the movie’s production staff, the Native American extras abruptly leave the set.
On Thursday, Netflix defended the movie, saying the actors were in on the joke. “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.” That, however, seems to contradict the standoff between the actor and production crew.
