According to Netflix, nobody should be surprised when an Adam Sandler movies turns out to be a bit ridiculous.

According to reports, nearly a dozen Native American actors walked off the set of Sandler's new movie, The Ridiculous Six, in protest of some less-than-sensitive cultural jokes and stereotypes present in the script. According to the Indian Country Today Media Network, "the examples of disrespect included Native women’s names such as Beaver’s Breath and No Bra, an actress portraying an Apache woman squatting and urinating while smoking a peace pipe, and feathers inappropriately positioned on a teepee."

The Ridiculous Six, a supposed parody of The Magnificent Seven, is the first of four original films Adam Sandler will make for Netflix. The two parties struck a deal back in October of 2014.

In an statement, Netflix basically said that the whole point of the movie is to be ridiculous – I mean, it says so in the title.

“The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous,” said a spokesperson in a statement. “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.”

The film boasts an impressive cast – Blake Shelton, Whitney Cummings, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Dan Aykroyd, Will Forte, Nick Swardson, Terry Crews, Jon Lovitz, Taylor Lautner, Nick Nolte, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, Chris Parnell, Lavell Crawford, and Vanilla Ice.

Filming was unimpeded by the walk-off, according to reports.

“When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said yes for one reason and one reason only…. Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks,”” said Sandler when the four-picture deal was announced.
