Abstract

In April 2015, actor Loren Anthony and eight extras from the cast of Adam Sandler’s Netflix production Ridiculous Six had walked off the set due to repeated insults and derogatory remarks embedded in the script. The claim was the film included disrespect of women, elders, and sacred items, and it exceeded the actors’ capacity to overlook the intended “satire” of the production. The author examines derogatory Indian stereotypes in several films, and the social media campaign to boycott Netflix - #NotYourHollywoodIndian and #WalkOff Netflix.
