American actors quit Adam Sandler's movie set
Some Native American actors on the set of Adam Sandler's movie, 'The Ridiculous Six,' have walked out on the directors and producers.
It was reported that the group of actors quit the movie set over what they tagged an insult on their personality and race as well as disrespect on the women of their race.
In a tweet by one of the actors that led the walk out, Loren Anthony, "...my native women were disrespected and i walked off set. ... but Netflix says the outraged actors are missing the whole point of the film."
The Ridiculous Six, which is being produced for Netflix and stars star Sandler, Nick Nolte, Steve Buscemi, Dan Aykroyd, Jon Lovitz and Vanilla Ice.
It was further reported that actors got angry and walked out on the set on Wednesday, April 22, 2015 during the shoot of some scenes that had an Apache woman urinating outdoors while smoking a peace pipe.
As if that wasn't enough, the angered actors got offended by jokes in the flick that included female characters named Beaver’s Breath and No Bra.
However, the movie producer, Netflix has risen to Sandler's defence saying it's all a joke.
'The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous." The rep says it's intended to be a satire of Westerns and the stereotypes popularized in the genre. The diverse cast "is not only part of -- but in on -- the joke,' a Netflix rep tells TMZ.
