Anthony said the script included offensive names for Native American female characters and a scene where a Native American woman urinated while smoking a peace pipe.
A spokesman for Sandler's Manchester, New Hampshire-based production company, Happy Madison Productions, didn't immediately return a phone message. Goldie Tom, another extra who departed the set Wednesday, said producers told the group to leave if they felt offended and that script changes were not up for debate. She added the production had a number of non-Native American actors portraying American Indians, a long-standing complaint about the movie industry.
The actors said a Native American consultant hired by the production also walked off the set.
The New Mexico Film Office said Thursday the dispute was a First Amendment issue and the office had no say over the movie's content.
David Hill, 74, a Choctaw actor from Oklahoma who left the set, said he thought the film industry was heading toward better portrayal of American Indians before this experience.

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 and the inappropriate use of props.
Anthony said the script included offensive names for Native American female characters and a scene where a Native American woman urinated while smoking a peace pipe.
The Ridiculous Six is produced by Sandler and Allen Covert and is slated for a Netflix-only release.

It’s the kind of premise that, were it masterminded by Mel Brooks, could probably be really f*cking funny, but the minute I heard Sandler was coming for my heritage, I felt a chill. Maybe having a dozen people walk off set will be a wake-up call that his jokes have to get better.
