Actors quit Sandler movie

테스트

ALBUQUERQUE — A group of American Indian actors have walked off the set of an Adam Sandler movie over complaints about stereotypes and offensive names.

Actor Loren Anthony told The Associated Press on Thursday that he and eight others quit the production of the satirical Western “The Ridiculous Six’’ after producers ignored their concerns about its portrayal of Apache culture.

Anthony says the script also included offensive names for Native American female characters. He says producers told them to leave if they felt offended.

A spokesman for Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison Productions, didn’t immediately return a phone message.

"The Ridiculous Six" is produced by Sandler and Allen Covert and is slated for a Netflix-only release. Production on the film began this month in Santa Fe and northern New Mexico. AP
