Native American actress Lily Gladstone has slammed Yellowstone as “delusional and deplorable.”
The Killers of the Flower Moon actor, 37, criticised the portrayal of the American West in the Paramount Plus drama.
Taylor Sheridan and John Linson created the film, which stars Kevin Costner as John Dutton III, who is desperate to safeguard his family’s cattle property.
The plot revolves around Dutton’s ranch and the tensions and conflicts that emerge with its neighbours, which include an Indian reserve, Yellowstone National Park, and a growing town.
Lily had a two-word reaction when questioned about the Western, which has been plagued by rumours of animosity between Kevin, 68, and showrunner Taylor Sheridan.
‘Delusional! Deplorable!’ The Last Manhunt star said to Vulture.
Lily continued: ‘No offense to the Native talent in that. I auditioned several times. That’s what we had.’
The criticism comes as it was revealed that Yellowstone would finish after the fifth season, and that a new, as-yet unnamed sequel has been approved for a series.
Previously, it was reported that Kevin had left the series due to disagreements between the actor and Taylor.
Kevin recently mentioned leaving Yellowstone during a court session for his divorce procedures with estranged wife Christine Baumgartner, hinting that he might file a lawsuit.
During his testimony, The Bodyguard star said that he had previously promised to do seasons five, six, and seven of the Western series for a cost of $12 million (£9.5 million).
When the fifth season was broken into two parts, Costner altered his schedule to accommodate filming the second half, even shifting the filming of his picture Horizon to meet it, resulting in a $10 million ‘push charge’ that was absorbed by his film’s budget.
The screenplay for the second half of the season had not yet been finished by the time The Man of Steel actor was ready to film Yellowstone again.
He claimed in court that discussions for season six continued in February and again in May due to money and ‘creative issues,’ and that Paramount finally backed out when he demanded $12 million to film that season.
‘I’ll probably go to court over it. I’m disappointed in the production,’ he is reported as saying.
It’s unclear when Phillip chose to unfollow Holly, months after people speculated about the health of his connection with her.
Holly, on the other hand, still follows Phillip and his kids on Instagram.
Nonetheless, she has other things on her mind tonight as the stars of This Morning hope for another triumph at the NTAs.
Yellowstone’s second part of the fifth and final season will debut in November.
