Leonardo DiCaprio sued for portraying Native Americans as ‘violent, inbred hillbillies’ in new film Out Of The Furnace

He’s no stranger to filing lawsuits himself, once successfully stopping Playgirl from publishing some full-frontal naked photos.

But now Leonardo DiCaprio has found himself the defendent for producing the 2013 film Out Of The Furnance - purportedly based on the Ramapo Mountain people of New Jersey - with members of the community saying they were wrongly portrayed as violent, drug-using 'inbreds’ and 'hillbillies’ and that the movie has caused them emotional distress.
