ADAM SANDLER NETFLIX FILM SLAMMED AS OFFENSIVE TO NATIVE AMERICANS: Some of the Native American actors who were hired to work on Adam Sandler's new western comedy, Ridiculous 6, have publicly slammed the project for being offensive to their community. Actor Loren Anthony told the Native & American Indian News, "I was asked a long time ago to do some work on this and I wasn't down for it. Then they told me it was going to be a comedy, but it would not be racist. So I agreed to it, but on Monday things started getting weird on the set. We were supposed to be Apache, but it was really stereotypical and we did not look Apache at all. We looked more like Comanche. One thing that really offended a lot of people was that there was a female character called Beaver's Breath. One character says, 'Hey, Beaver's Breath.' And the Native woman says, 'How did you know my name?' They just treated us as if we should just be on the side. When we did speak with the main director, he was trying to say the disrespect was not intentional and this was a comedy." Netflix responded with their own statement which read, "The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of -- but in on -- the joke."

JOHN OLIVER SAYS PEOPLE IN THE UK CARE LESS ABOUT THE ROYAL BABY THAN THE WORLD: Kate Middleton's upcoming baby is apparently not such a huge deal in the U.K. Last Week Tonight host John Oliver claims that other countries tend to make a bigger deal about royal babies than they do in England. He explained to Page Six, "I don't care. I think people around the world care more about royal babies than British people do. It's one of the only things we produce of international value anymore. It shows how far our empire has collapsed that people tend to look at us whenever members of the royal family are born, die or get married."
