Native Americans walk off Adam Sandler set

A group of Native American actors have walked off the set of an Adam Sandler comedy, claiming the film is “totally disrespectful” of Apache culture.

Nine actors quit the set of Western satire The Ridiculous Six this week over its portrayal of Native Americans.

But Netflix, which commissioned the film, said it was a “broad satire” intended to send up stereotypes.


This is one of those situations for me where it’s hard to choose a side.

From a personal standpoint Sandler’s career ended with the atrocity “Don’t mess with the Zohan” .

Imagine, an Israeli and Muslim terrorists teaming up to defeat the real bad guys, white redneck racists.

It doesn’t get more Hollywood cesspool than that.

Makes me cringe to even type the title.

Still it’s fun to watch the Liberal Left eat one of their own. There’s been a lot of that going around of late.

Boing Boing being the latest made to squirm by their own “allies”.

Perhaps the grievance mongers have learned from Memories Pizza, the right can fight back and we have a hell of a lot of Fuck You Money at our disposal.

Their own side makes for a much softer target.

It’s why I support the Monument to the victims of Communism.

I don’t care how ugly it is, I want it bigger and uglier now.

    I’d hire the winner and several runners-up to an announce Iron Eyes Cody look alike contest.

    I have never watched an Adam Sandler film, out of protest against the “stupid culture” point of view he promotes. It is said that he plays men who “never grow up to adulthood”. If one looks at society, young men are postponing decisions to educate themselves, marry and have kids. As a university professor, there is nothing more frightening, in my first year classes, to see a group of young men came walking in, late, with their baseball hats turned backwards, with a stupid grin on their dumb-looking faces. I always wonder what role people like Adam Sandler play, in misleading our young an any positive side to stupid-culture.

    Male comics often have to play stupid. We see this in the awful ads running down men and fathers (always played by dumb-looking white comics). When we were young we might have laughed at the old black-and-white Abbot and Costello and Three Stooges movies. But then stupid-culture was a small part of culture; today stupid-culture is all pervasive.

    I do not like Adam Sandler. I like it when Cat says that, in this case, it is the left eating their own.

    • Young men are amazingly able to be stupid of their own volition, role models are secondary, the test begins when they enter the real world.

      Some smarten up, many don’t having drank the kool-aid.

  • Tom Forsythe

    He is in heap big trouble.

    • He better start circling the wagons.

      • Justin St.Denis

        No, he’ll weather this very well. American Indians are about as effective as Canadian Indians, and neither are even vaguely familiar with actual history. American Indian Chiefs rent their head-dresses from Hollywood the same way Canadian Indian Chiefs do. It’s an industry standard.

    This made me chortle.


    • Thanks;)

      Short, to the point, and true. Never fails! Hats off, BCF!

    I always side with freedom and liberty in situations like this. Comedy and satire are exactly that. And different people respond to different comedians and satirists differently. That’s the whole point. I was never a great fan of Mel Brooks’ movies. I find Monty Python rather stupid, too. I’m a huge Naked Gun films fan, but I can understand that others may not share my taste in comedy. 😉

    BTW, I really laughed when I saw The Wedding Singer, but other Sandler films have left me cold.

    • I do as well but Sandler and Hollywood are the enemy.

    • kkruger71

      The main reason for your last sentence is The Wedding Singer is one of the few Sandler movies that he didn’t write. The other one he was in (but again, didn’t write) that I enjoyed was Airheads.
      I agree with you in that comedy is a matter of taste and what one person finds funny, another may not. I never thought I’d miss the days when the Left were always arguing “If you don’t like it, don’t watch”.

    • just a thought

      I sat through The Wedding Singer because my ex wanted to watch it. I wouldn’t have on my own volition. I’ve never seen any of his other stuff, at least not that I can recall, anyway.

      Punch Drunk Love was a great movie.
      If Peter Sellers was alive he would have been perfect.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Is that the one with Drew Barrymore? I have to tell you, I have a major THING for Drew Barrymore. I would watch her read the phone book (if they still publish one). 😉

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          No, it’s with Emily Watson.
          And Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
          As The Mattress Man.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Great! Thanks. But I STILL like Drew Barrymore.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            She was good in that movie with Jimmy Fallon about the Red Sox.
            They had to change the ending because the Sox actually won the World Series that year.
            I am a huge Red Sox fan.

          • Justin St.Denis

            I didn’t know that about that movie.

          • Clausewitz

            She was in 50 first dates, and the wedding singer.

  • I’m sure it was vulgar and I don’t blame people being so bothered by it that they walked out.

    That being said, Hollywood is a land of lies and stereotypes. A vulgar depiction of aboriginals is just as bad as one that shows how in touch with nature they are.

  • just a thought

    “it’s fun to watch the Liberal Left eat one of their own. There’s been a lot of that going around of late.”

    It’s unavoidable, almost a law of nature, that lies and those who tell them eventually end up at odds and come crashing down.

    Native American actors… [claim]… the film is “totally disrespectful” of Apache culture.
    What did they expect? There is no respect for anything in Hollywood. Of course, if the Apache were more numerous, and began instilling fear of them by starting to cut the heads off of some prominent actors, maybe there would be the pretense of respect? Hmmm, interesting idea for a movie I might actually go to see.

    Isn’t Adam Sandler a Republican?
