Adam Sandler Calls His Racist Movie Controversy a 'Misunderstanding'


Adam Sandler has responded to criticism of his racist Netflix Western parody The Ridiculous Six by not really responding.

The film initially caught heat after Native American actors walked off the set over its apparently offensive script, in which “Apache” characters were given names like “No Bra” and “Beaver’s Breath” and asked to do things like urinate while smoking a peace pipe. There’s also been talk that the movie’s stylists are using makeup to darken the skin of some of its actors.

At the premiere of his new project Pixels on Saturday, Sandler told the Associated Press, “It was just a misunderstanding and once the movie is out will be cleared up.”

Okay… well, thanks for letting us know…

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sandler also referred to the movie as “100 percent pro-American Indian.”
