Read a Page From the Adam Sandler Script That Caused Native Actors to Quit
Native actors who walked off the set of Adam Sandler’s movie The Ridiculous Six managed to snap a quick photograph of one of the pages of the script that shows offensive language and insults to native women. In the scene, characters "Beaver Breath," "Smoking Fox" and "Never Wears Bra" discuss the novelty of toilet paper, and it is revealed that their own approach to hygiene involves keeping their private parts clean with dead animals.
Additionally, the characters speak in broken stereotypical English.
The script reads as follows:
EXT. CREEK OUTSIDE APACHE VILLAGE – LATER
The Creek area is busy. Braves spear-fish while children play in the water.
Smoking Fox is on the banks of the creek, doing laundry with her best friends: a 30-ish chubby woman, BEAVER BREATH, and a younger woman, NEVER WEARS BRA (both Apache).
I have a big idea for your wedding: we decorate trees with toilet paper!
What is this “toilet paper”?
Paper used to clean your chi-wat after taking a chungo.
That what dead squirrel for!
Why we all so afraid to try something new in this village? Must I speak with the spirits to see if it "okay" to have clean chi-wat without murdering innocent rodent?
Whoa somebody "on the raccoon" today…
As they all laugh, smoking Fox looks over at Tommy. He is surrounded by kids. He shoots an arrow in the air, and catches it with his teeth. The kids are impressed.
You lucky, Smoking Fox. White Knife all man. Bravest of all braves.
Not brave, foolish. I want to be wife, not widow.

The Gawker website Defamer obtained an earlier version of the script, which includes a female character named "Sits-on-Face," who inspires another character to declare "Well then, I'm Stiff-In-Pants!" It also includes the one-liner "How bout after this we go someplace and I put my peepee in your teepee?" LINK: These Are the Jokes That Caused Actors To Walk Off Adam Sandler's Set
