  1. Tribal Actors Depart Sandler Movie Set

    Some jokes aren’t funny anymore. Netflix is defending its comedy Western The Ridiculous Six, starring Adam Sandler, after a dozen Native American actors walked off the set over a script they called offensive and insulting to their culture.

Audiences can judge — if the film, which has no release date, ever comes out.
