The Onion Skewers 'The Lone Ranger'

Satiric website The Onion writes about The Lone Ranger as a film that will make up for previous injustices done to American Indians

Satirical website The Onion took aim at Johnny Depp's portrayal of Tonto in The Lone Ranger yesterday, wryly lauding both the actor's choices and the notion that the less-than-authentic portrayal of a fictional Indian in an action film will compensate for Hollywood's past wrongs, as Depp has suggested.

The piece, titled "Ecstatic American Indians Praise 'The Lone Ranger'", includes comments from a 94-year-old Potawatomi elder, who says that "At long last, we have a tale befitting the long, proud tradition of our tribespeople." Additionally, a coalition of all American Indians declares that the genocide and countless historical injustices were "worth it" to arrive at a film as thoroughly excellent as The Lone Ranger.
