Native Americans Have Had Enough Of Adam Sandler’s New Movie

adam sandlerWe can all agree that Adam Sandler seriously blows, right? It wasn’t always the case. He was funny in his day. He wasn’t my cup of tea, but I can recognize various forms of comedy and recognize talent when I see it. However, in the past 10 years or so, Sandler has gone so far downhill that the hill is no longer in sight and he must’ve fallen straight through to the center of the earth. It’s bad. Come on – Jack and Jill? Grown Ups? Don’t Mess with the Zohan? I could keep going but I think you get my point. The situation is not good – especially now that he’s managed to piss off the Native American community with his new travesty, The Ridiculous Six.

From TMZ:

The movie is called “The Ridiculous Six” and is being produced just for Netflix. It’s described as a spoof on “The Magnificent Seven” … starring Sandler, Nick Nolte, Steve Buscemi, Dan Aykroyd, Jon Lovitz and Vanilla Ice.

But the spoofing went too far Wednesday, in the eyes of a dozen actors and actresses who walked off the set. Some of the offending jokes included female characters named Beaver’s Breath and No Bra — and a scene where an Apache woman urinates outdoors while smoking a peace pipe.

Netflix is defending the Sandler flick, saying it’s all a joke. A Netflix rep tells TMZ, “The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous.” The rep says it’s intended to be a satire of Westerns and the stereotypes popularized in the genre.

The rep adds … the diverse cast “is not only part of — but in on — the joke.”

This wasn’t the first day of filming. In fact, Loren Anthony — one of the pissed actors had previously tweeted how much he was enjoying the project. But after today’s walk out he said, “Today work was no bueno, my native women were disrespected and i walked off set.”

Uh… yikes. Nothing like a bunch of white bros lampooning another culture and not listening to ACTUAL native people when it comes to knowing when they’ve gone too far. This whole thing is going to be a mess, anyway. What the hell is Buscemi thinking being involved with this bullshit? Shut it down!

Jimmy Kimmel has celebrities read even more mean tweets

spears

I don’t really like Jimmy Kimmel – I don’t “get” what’s so funny about him and find him rather dull, most of the time. One of the few exceptions to this, however, is when he does his ‘Celebrities Reading Mean Tweets’ segment. Now that’s entertainment – though you could argue it’s not really his, since he doesn’t appear in the videos, but whatever.

The point is, we’re here with another installment of celebrities reading all the mean shit you guys say about them online, and they’re great. I particularly enjoy the tweet about Adam Sandler, but that’s just because I totally agree with it. Enjoy!

Adam Sandler is making four new movies for Netflix

adam sandler

I’m going to say something (else) that’s probably going to be really unpopular: Adam Sandler sucks. He’s not funny, his movies are awful, and the entertainment industry would march on just fine if he decided to retire tomorrow. I actively avoid anything he’s involved in (though obviously I have seen the “classics” like Happy Gilmore and Big Daddy and the like), so I have zero interest in the four new movies he’s making for Netflix. I guess if you can’t make bank in theatres, go to VOD?

“?People love Adam’?s films on Netflix and often watch them again and again,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement released online. “His appeal spans across viewers of all ages — everybody has a favorite movie, everyone has a favorite line — not just in the U.S. but all over the world.”

“?When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said ‘yes’ for one reason and one reason only?,” Sandler said in a statement released by the company. “Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks. Let the streaming begin!!!!?”

Uh…

Okay, I’ll just leave that one alone.

Adam Sandler Has Already Swept This Year’s Razzie Awards

Well, that’s it. Forget the Oscars—which are tonight!—just forget ‘em, because we can all go home. Adam Sandler is already slated to clean up at this year’s Razzies. And as we all know, the Razzie is the only trophy that matters.

Sandler swept with a record-shattering 11 nominations. Deadline has the full press announcement:

Sandler has more than doubled Eddie Murphy‘s old record for the most nominations accrued by an individual in a single year. As an actor, writer and/or producer on Jack & Jill, Bucky Larson and Just Go With It, the former SNL star has amassed a whopping 11 RAZZIE nods, dis-honoring last year’s Worst Achievements in Film.

Leading the pack for Worst Picture is Sandler’s cross-dressing comedy Jack & Jill, which received 12 nods in all (becoming only the 4th film in the Tacky Trophy’s history ever to get more dings than the awards have categories).

Besides having the inside track to “win” the top award, Jill is also contending for Sandler as Worst Actor (as male twin Jack). […]

Sandler is also nominated for Worst Actress for playing the role of Jill and, should he “win” and follow in the footsteps of previous “winners” Halle Berry (Catwoman) and Sandra Bullock (All About Steve), Sandler could potentially become the first “winner” who literally has the balls to accept a Worst Actress RAZZIE.

Yeesh.

Russell Brand also scooped up a nomination for his work in Arthur, which I thought was a perfectly likable movie, and James Franco was nominated for his “work” in Your Highness.

And Ken Jeong—whom I adore—was nominated for FOUR (!) movies, including Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son. Frown.

The full list of this year’s nominees—just in case you were wondering about them, I mean—after the jump. (How borked is Hollywood? Here’s how borked: a bunch of the “worst actress” nominees are men. Stop taking our (bad) roles, dudes!)

Blind Items, Now Featuring Leg Humping!

I don’t know if you could tell, but I’ve really hit my stride with these blind items. So far, I’ve uncovered Lea Michele‘s close relationship with cocaine, I’ve revealed to the world that Anne Hathaway‘s boyfriend is worshipping Satan, and I’ve warned you that Chris Kattan is fond of showcasing his junk in gyms. I’ve done a lot of good so far, right? Well, here’s my latest deed, because I’m about to expose a leg humper.

This still barely hanging on to A list comic actor who is supposedly a devoted family man has been accused several times recently on his movies for acting inappropriately with female co-stars. They say that in the guise of being funny he will often rub his peen against women and does this with or without pants and the whole time does it in public and while laughing. He says he is just joking around but it seems to only be done when there are attractive women around and he never does it to a name actress only to those with lesser parts.

It’s Adam Sandler, right? He’s a family man, he’s not so A list anymore, and he definitely seems the type to act inappropriately with his penis. Any other guesses?
