today's action Tell Adam Sandler: Don't Mock Native Women

Adam Sandler's next movie contains numerous jokes mocking American Indians. When a dozen Native extras heard the offensive jokes, they walked off the set of the Netflix-produced spoof.

Sandler's so-called "jokes" include naming Indian women "Beaver Breath," "Never Wears Bra," and "Sits-on-Face," rhyming "tee-pee" with "pee-pee," and having white men toss an alcoholic beverage at an Indian woman passed out on the ground. Alcoholism, sexual assault, and violence against women continue to ravage real reservations, yet Sandler tries to poke fun at the very serious issues. When a white producer learned that some Native extras were upset at the stereotypes, he snapped, "if you guys are overly sensitive, you should leave." So they did.

For today's Daily Action, sign the petition urging that the producer be removed from the film and calling on Adam Sandler to remove his insensitive jokes mocking American Indians, especially American Indian women.
