Demand The Scorch Trials cast and crew apologize to Native Americans

In a disturbing interview on Live with Kelly & Michael, Dylan O'Brien admits that cast members of his film "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" ignored instructions about filming on a Native American site and stole ancient Pueblo artifacts from a filming location outside Albuquerque. 

The Native Americans from that area, the Pueblo people, have spoken out, angered and disrespected. 

While O'Brien plays it for laughs, talking about bringing a Native American curse on the cast, his flip treatment of the crew's actions is outrageous. O'Brien, the film's director, and other crew members involved need to apologize to Pueblo tribal leaders for their behavior and return any artifacts they removed from the site.
Native American culture and communities deserve more respect than you apparently showed while filming "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials." Fans are furious that you would steal Pueblo artifacts despite being told not to. Please publicly apologize to Pueblo community leaders and return what you stole.
