Relatively unfunny guy, Adam Sandler has had some issues with his latest upcoming film (or flop) ‘Ridiculous Six’.
[dropcap size=small]O[/dropcap]n Wednesday, April 22nd, over a dozen Native American extras left the set of Sandler’s The Ridiculous Six due to jokes that were considered stereotypical representations of Apache culture and the scripts offensive jokes aimed at Native American women and elders. At first, specific details to the script were not released but since then more and more dialogue and names of characters have surfaced.
Characters with names like “Beaver Breath”, and “Never-Wears-Bra” are featured in a picture of some dialogue from the movie’s script. The script above includes a conversation between characters about the use of toilet paper and how they use dead animals instead of it. Other pages of script show characters “Flaming Wolf” and “Five Hairy Moles” and even dialogue where one character asks another “to go some place and I put my pee-pee in your tee-pee.”
From just these few lines and character names, it is easy to see why people are so outraged about the movie. The movie is a satire of the 1960s western The Magnificent Six but many are saying the satire is bordering racism. This form of offense is something that Sandler is familiar with; many of his movies have jokes aimed towards women, homosexuals, people who are over-weight, etc.
The movie is part of a four movie deal that Sandler has with Netflix, who commented Thursday saying “The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous. 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.”
Sandler himself has not yet made a comment on any of the accusations and claims.
The Ridiculous Six is slated for release sometime in 2016 and stars Adam Sandler, Taylor Lautner, David Spade, Vanilla Ice, and many others you would normally found in a Sandler film.
