Details of some of the offensive jokes in Adam Sandler’s upcoming movie “Ridiculous Six, ” which is now filming, have been revealed by Gawker. They were considered so insulting to Native Americans that nearly a dozen of them walked off the movie’s set last week.

(See our story here.)

The movie, being made for Netflix and co-written by Sandler, is clearly meant to be a spoof of ”The Magnificent Seven.” It is due out in 2016 and of course co-stars Steve Buscemi and David Spade.

The Indian Country Today Media Network reported that the people who bolted the production, which is taking place in New Mexico, included actors, actresses and even the film’s Native cultural advisor and that they were mostly from the Navajo nation. They felt that “The Ridiculous Six” is insulting to Apache culture and uses offensive names for Native Americans like “Beaver’s Breath” and “No Bra.”

Here are some excerpts from the script obtained by Gawker:

Sexy Woman: Morning Three Knives. I had a dream about you

Tommy: That’s Nice Sits-on-Face.

Frank: Wow, someone’s got an admirer…

(Sits-on-Face squats down behind the teepee and pees while lighting up a peace pipe.)

Not offensive enough yet? Well how about this:

Flaming Wolf: Me never hear of him. I know a “Five Hairy Moles” and a “One Eyebrow” and my cousin “Four Pickles” but no “Three Knives.” Sorry.

These are in addition to what was described by an extra named Loren Anthony who told The Indian Country Today Media Network, “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?’”

We could go on with more examples, but then you would probably hate us for it. You get the idea enough already.

Not only is Sandler offending American Indians, but he seems to think that he can continue to get away with the sophomoric bathroom humor that launched his film career in the 90s.

Note to Adam Sandler: no one cares anymore and you’re too old now to appeal to stoned high school and college kids.
