Indian Country Today, a national Native American media company, reported that a new Adam Sandler project for Netflix called "The Ridiculous Six" ran into problems when its cast of Native actors walked off the set due to disagreements over the show's humor.

According to Indian Country Today some of the Native women’s names such as Beaver’s Breath and No Bra are not humorous but are disrespectful. The publication also said an Apache woman was squatting and urinating while smoking a peace pipe. The peace pipe is sacred tradition to many Native Americans.

One of the actors that walked off did post pictures of himself on Instagram getting ready for the shoot.
