Adam Sandler may need to start acting his age — and by that we mean remembering it's 2015.
According to reports, a dozen Native American actors AND the Native cultural advisor walked off the set of his latest film The Ridiculous Six on Wednesday.

Johnny Depp is almost unrecognizable as Tonto from The Lone Ranger! We're still not full convinced that's him!
When we first hear the news that he was taking this role, we were worried that Johnny portraying a Native American might be offensive to the leaders of the Navajo Nation.
But they seem to be fine with it! Just look at them getting all chummy!
They must be aware that Johnny and director Gore Verbinski (who directed the Pirates of the Caribbean movies) are planning to twist the classic stereotypes and tropes from old Westerns.

It's time for another Urban Outfitters scandal!
The hipster retailer is in hot water for using of the word "Navajo" to describe their Native American-inspired items, which violates the Federal Trade Commission Act and Federal Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990.

Girl, what are you wearing!?
Lindsay Lohan put on one heck of an outfit to go out to eat this weekend.
Her mess of an outfit included a Native American printed sweater, black dress, blue scarf and boots.
Not your best look, Linds.
