More than 34,000 people are calling for the cast and crew from Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials to apologize to Native American tribal leaders after allegedly removing artifacts while filming on location.

The film was being shot in Albuquerque, N.M., on an ancient Pueblo burial ground. Fans have expressed outrage in a petition after actor Dylan O’Brien said that, while the cast was told not to, “everyone just takes stuff, obviously.”
