Johnny Depp, in costume as Tonto, meets with members of the Navajo Nation while filming The Lone Ranger in Monument Valley. (April 16, 2012)
He then immediately offended them by saying, “HOW, BIG CHIEF SQUANTO! WE SMOKUM PEACE PIPE?”
It’s as if we haven’t done enough to these people…
I know, now self-loathing Americans can fund and support their racist agenda as equality. Gladly advertise their fleecing of our society at their casinos, and nod along as they imagine their history and blame everyone but themselves for their failure. Never mind the monthly check and tax breaks the government sends them for being sovereign nations. Protected class, doesn’t sounds very “equal” to me.
So just to fact check you, lots of tribes live in poverty and if it wasn’t for the government assistance, they would be in worse shape.
I was simply making a hyperbolic comment on our dilution of their culture through idiotic interpretations like this one.
El que no sabe eres tu!
Nothing racially insensitve to see here.
I guess Johnny figured “As long as the check clears, these people will do anything”.
Oh, cool. I didn’t know they were making a sequel to Edward Scissorhands.
They made him an honorary tribe member, naming him “Rapes With Camera.”
Don’t worry, in traditional Navajo culture this is what’s known as ‘the handshake of death.’
Hi, how are you?
Hi, how are you?
I wonder if that blanket has smallpox on it.
Wow, I mean… genius, but wow.
That awkward moment when you’re dressed up in full war paint and run into an an actual Indian.
“We’re incredibly offended, but y’know…money.”
When the fuck did Tonto start dressing like Gene Simmons?
Tim Burton is on the rock in the background shouting for more haberdashery.
Ain’t that an abominable crime against nature or something like that?
johnny have tiny head. maybe that’s his indian name: tiny head.
Typical white man. Took him 20 years to finally get around to embarrassing the *Indian* people.
Chester Wellington, in blackface as Trayvon Martin, meets elders from the NAACP while filming “The Lone Neighborhood Watcher” in south Florida.
“Lovely to meet you too…fancy a curry?”
Navajo Indians overjoyed that Ke-mo sah-bee “accidentally” fell from the cliff. Hi Ho Tonto and away!
To add insult to injury, Tim Burton was unavailable for this photoshoot… he was off finding an ancient Indian burial ground to piss on.
…..is “red face” an actual term?
