John Wayne Wikipedia 7

In 1973 actor Marlon Brando refused an Oscarhe had won, due to “the treatment of American Indians today by the film industry”; Brando did not attend the award ceremony but asked Native American civil rights activist Sacheen Littlefeather to attend and deliver a refusal speech in the event that he won. Wayne, who has been described as “serial slaughterer of Native Americans on-screen and self-professed white supremacist off it”, was in the wings, and was so angry that Littlefeather said “he was coming towards me to forcibly take me off the stage, and he had to be restrained by six security men to prevent him from doing so.”[111] This has also been described as a Hollywood myth that grew over the years.
