Yesterday it was revealed that a number of Native American actors, as well as the film’s cultural consultant, walked off the set of Adam Sandler’s Netflix film “Ridiculous 6” because of its insensitive portrayal of Native American characters.

Speaking to Indian Country Today, extras described some of the offensive content, which included "Native women’s names such as Beaver’s Breath and No Bra, an actress portraying an Apache woman squatting and urinating while smoking a peace pipe, and feathers inappropriately positioned on a teepee."

Today, Defamer got their hands on a version of the script (dated 2012, so some jokes may have changed), which offends our comedic sensibilities in addition to being chock-full of degrading stereotypes.

For example, here’s the dialogue from the "Beaver Breath" exchange. Tommy, AKA Three Knives, is played by Sandler, while Smoking Fox is the name of Tommy's wife.

INDIAN CHILD
Did you get our sharpening stone, Three Knives?

TOMMY
Here you go, Beaver Breath. Be careful.

INDIAN CHILD
I’m going to make my knife as sharp as yours. And my wife will have a sweet zum-zum, just like Smoking Fox!

TOMMY
Nobody talks about my girl’s zum-zum!

There’s also this bit, where a character named Will Patch makes overtures to a character named -- wait for it -- Sits-On-Face.

WILL PATCH
(to Sits-On-Face)
“Say honey: how bout after this, we go someplace and I put my peepee in your teepee?"

You can read more of the dialogue over at Defamer, if you want. We don't recommend it!
