The race controversy swirling around Adam Sandler's Western comedy Ridiculous Six just isn't going away. The Hollywood Reporter reports that a source on set says that the makeup team has been darkening actors of various ethnicities to make them appear Native American. Indeed, one of the actors who walked off set, Allison Young, told MSNBC, "I'm full-blooded Navajo and they bronzed me. I was quite confused." You'll remember this came after a number of Native American actors, as well as the cultural adviser, walked off set, and after Vanilla Ice defended the movie — who, as we all know, never steals or appropriates anything.
