Remember The Ridiculous Six, that Adam Sandler Netflix comedy that offended countless Native Americans, including the Native actors and hired consultant on set? Well, the trailer is out, and like most Sandler films nowadays, it looks and sounds just like you’d expect. Take a look at it for yourself.
I’ve been covering the news surrounding The Ridiculous Six for about a week now, and I’m very excited to say that I was able to speak directly to one of the actors who left the film, Loren Anthony.
In this interview, Anthony details what the general feeling was on that particular day of filming and his personal feelings when it came to the absurdly offensive treatment of his people and culture, as reflected in the leaked script. I know there are those out there that have wanted to know how much the actors knew about the film before signing on; Anthony covered this and much more in our phone call, which you’ll read below.
