Keith Richards Pissed Off Disney! Cut Out of Pirates?

| Filed under: Film FlickersDisney

keith richards kicked out of pirates of the caribbean

Although Keith Richards reprised his role of Captain Teague in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the rocker may be removed from the film due to his new book Life.

He gets pretty graphic about sex and drugs, which is not appropriate considering he stars in the family friendly film.

Richards wrote:

"It's not only the high quality of drugs I had that I attribute my survival to. I was very meticulous about how much I took. I'd never put more in to get a little higher. That's where most people f**k up on drugs."

Ha. It's very possible that he could be cut out due to these admissions.

Do U think he should be axed from the movie?!

  1. 1

    WTF would they expect?? He's a rocktar of that time, is that a surprise?



  2. 2

    That is ridiculous! Were they somehow under the impression that he had been an angel his whole life? His personal life should have nothing to do with his involvement with the movie. It is not like he is portraying himself. Disney is just going too far these days. They need to get over themselves.



  3. 3

    I've been a fan of the Stones for decades, like ANYTHING Keith has done is news. He was a drug addict and EVERYONE has known it for years. His teeth rotted because of heroine use. Disney is a bunch of hypocrites.



  4. 4

    Naw. He is a walking advertisment for why NOT to use drugs. Look at the guy. Any young person wanting to try drugs might have an adult tell him, "Take a look at Keith Richards. Is THAT what you want for yourself?



  5. 5

    Disney sucks and always will…if u want to brainwash your kids..watch Disney



  6. 6

    Disney is the Devil …period



  7. 7

    umm did they not know who he was when they hired him?



  8. 8

    Puhleeze. They hired KEITH RICHARDS. Twice. His name has been synonymous with recreational pharmaceutical abuse for over forty years. He cut up his own father's ashes with some weapons-grade cocaine and snorted it. Is Disney just figuring out now that he might not be an ideal role model for the children of the nation?



  9. 9

    hell no ,hes talking moderation I never could do it I had to leave it all alone but more power to him !



  10. 10

    oh please! disney is being stupid. it's not like he has always been a disney star and now he's opening up and disney wants to cut him. and it's not like drugs in his life has been any secret to anyone. no reason to cut him off.
    miley cyrus was a disney star and 1 hour after she was out of her contract she was showing her vajay-jay to anyone who wanted to see it, and disney still has her show on. everyone is always on her ass on how she's too sexy for her age and disney still has her show on.
    keith richards always had his rock star life going on and everyone knew about it, including disney. if they didn't want a drug addict starring in their movie, then they shouldn't have hired one!

    iIf American Idol can have Steven Tyler, a recovering druggie, as a judge on their 'family friendly' program, why should Keith Ricjards be axed from Pirates? JK!!I personally will not be watching Idol this season because of Perry's seat…



  12. 12

    If he got axed because of that, it would be the funniest thing ever. LMAO! Only Keith Richards could get kicked out of a Disney film. But that's just it: He's Keith Fucking Richards. What did they expect? They knew his story going into this with him, so…



  13. 13

    Did Disney miss the news a few years ago that Keith Richards snorted his fathers ashes with cocaine….. how is this less family friendly than that? Disney is so crazy if this is true.



  14. 14

    why would they cast keith richards if they have a problem with drug users? Thats just silly.



  15. 15

    Oh please- he's KEITH RICHARDS!



  16. 16

    Sounds like a stupid rumor. I think Disney knows that most of the kids going to see the movie don't know who Keith Richards is, and that most of the parents taking them there (as well as grandparents) are fully aware of Keith's past and love him anyway.



  17. 17

    I think it's silly. It isn't like Disney didn't know Keith Richards did drugs.



  18. 18

    Like anybody's phucking surprised!? Let's get real people.



  19. 19

    Come now people Keith Richards was caught doing a three way with Daffy Duck and Mickey Mouse while on crystal meth and Reverend Ted Haggard complained to Disney that Daffy was his main man,so all hell broke loose at Disney, and they said can that bastard Keith Richards



  20. 20

    Disney is ridiculous. They hired friggin KEITH RICHARDS.. king of sex, drugs, rock&roll. What did they think his past is some deep dark secret? This book is the thing that bought it all out in the open? Obvs not.. they need a reality check. If they want the big name they need to deal with his game too.



  21. 21

    Right. Because Disney didn't have a clue Keith Richards did drugs before he wrote that.



  22. 22

    Uhm…as I recall when the last movie came out, he confessed to snorting some of his father's remains. He wasn't cut from the movie. This new admission seems tame by comparison.



  23. 23

    Disney should really focus and be more worry with their teen stars than about keith richards enuff said.



  24. 24

    I think Ke$sha should ask Keith to take a paternity test. They look so much a like it's scary.



  25. 25

    River Phoenix OD'd outside of Johnny Depp's nightclub and obviously Disney doesn't give a shit.

    This makes no sense to me.



  26. 26

    He absolutely SHOULD NOT be cut. Kids watching Pirates are not of the same generation as those likely to read the book. Disney execs knew Richard's history when they signed him.

  27. SeeMe says – reply to this


    27

    Didn't he get kicked off last time for snorted his father's ashes?

    It is Keith Richards, what do you expect? Maybe we should all pray for him to turn into Billy Graham.



  28. 28

    Poor Keith, I'm sure he really could have used the money.



  29. 29

    kieth richards has always been a drug addict his whole life disney should of know this crap. diney needs to relize kids need to know about drug addicts and everything because it seems disney just want kids to believe life is all unicorn and rainbows yes we should incourage them that but its not like kieth richards going to be smoking pot or dong herione in the pirates of the carribain film oh look mommy the pirate is doing herion of course disney is not going ot do that if disney is thinking of that they are such hypocrates.



  30. 30

    It's not like the kids watching POTC are going to be reading his book.



  31. 31

    Yes he should be cut. Disney is a brand and when my kids were little you expect a certain standard of wholesomeness. Keith Richards is a sex, drugs, rock n roll guy which is cool, but not as part of the Disney thing. I was surprised that he was even in the 3rd one. or was is the 2nd? Oh I forget. The 1st one was the best of the Pirates movies anyway.



  32. 32

    Why, he's being bitterly honest. Everyone has a "past", we don't need to hold that against him . If anything, they should prase him for getting clean instead of punishing him for what he did. He's really a good example of being ABLE to commit to being a drug addict and doing something about it. I honor him for doing that, it's hard. I know, I've been there myself. Ah ohhh, does that mean I can't work for Disney now too?



  33. 33

    If he was being convicted now of drugs that is one thing, but this was his famous past and no child should be reading that book anyways. But, highly doubting this story is true anyways.

  34. Jaded says – reply to this


    34

    I kind of feel like the same people that are reading Keith Richards books are not the same kids that are going to see Pirate. Adults that are older and less impressionable sure, but that's not really Disney's main market.
    Plus, one look at Keith Richards and 90% of the kids would stay away from drugs. They should probably let him mainline smack in the film just to keep kids away from it.



  35. 35

    he's talking about doing drugs the right way. its better then being a closet addict and winding up on the front page from an overdose



  36. 36

    You are ONLY allowed to be a SUICIDAL STRUNG-OUT DRUG-ADDICTED ALCOHOLIC SEX FIENDS after you work for Disney ….not before!



  37. 37

    Is it not common knowledge that Keith Richards has done drugs? Did Disney never think of that before casting him? This is NO reason to cut him.



  38. 38

    Well then lets dig up the disney execs' past. Doubt they are all squeeky clean.
    They don;t want a former drug user in their movie? Then should former drug users run that company? Come on we all did it.



  39. 39

    How is this any different from the damn Glee shoot? People are all up in arms because they're being "too sexy" for a family TV show, now it's Keith Richard's book when they have nothing to do with one another! It's ridiculous. And I agree with each and every one of you that pointed out, Keith Richards is a walking poster boy for who to NOT emulate as a role model. I'm sure he'd put that in his pipe and smoke it. ;)



  40. 40

    ohhh my god.Keith Richards took grugs in the past….Disney is just plain ridiculous



  41. 41

    omg do Disney execs live in a cave.. THE MAN WAS BANNED FROM CANADA for like 15 years, had his entire blood supply exchanged twice due to heroin addiction and was a HUGE rock star in the 60-70-80.. really really WTF



  42. 42

    Plus kids wont know who the fuck this old guy is unless the Stones release a version of guitar hero or rock Band



  43. 43

    Can't believe this guy is still alive. His explanation, "I did drugs in moderation". Wow, that's admirable!



  44. 44

    uh, did disney think he never DID drugs and it was all just an act? fucking obviously this man did drugs, and just because he actually talks about it in a book that NO child is ever going to read, doesn't mean they should cut him out of a movie. idiots



  45. 45

    What would they expect!? It's Keith Richards!

  46. @v@ says – reply to this


    46

    That would be hypocritical, and could open a real can of Disney worms. I'd bet they're hardly squeaky clean. People know what Keith WAS, past tense, and they love him anyway because he came through the fire and conquered his demons. He's a freaking PIRATE, for heaven's sake. Pirates are baaaaad.
    He's perfect for the role.



  47. 47

    Disney might cut him because of his book? Then tell me, why are they still airing episodes of Hannah Montana after all of Miley's bad media?? Juss' sayin'



  48. 48

    Disney's fucking retarded if this statement is a shock to them. He's Keith fucking Richards!! Hello!! The height of this rock god's career was during the 60's and 70's. Give Keith Richards a break. He's the shit!!



  49. 49

    Re: pattisullivan2 – And what is he?? Filthy rich, adored by millions and still able to rock out at his age. You know nothing.



  50. 50

    Re: IvyLeagueBitch – Your kids are probably going to end up drug addicts anyway. Try parenting instead of letting Disney do it for you. Typical lazy modern parents.



  51. 51

    He's pure rock 'n roll and WE LIKE IT!



  52. 52

    that shirt is so ugly

  53. @v@ says – reply to this


    53

    It really doesn't matter what Disney does here. Everyone knows the legend - when it's all over for mankind, Disney and all of it's execs will be long gone, or hiding in the bunker, yet still alive and walking about will be Keith Richards, cockroaches, and of course, Cher.



  54. 54

    So Disney and Co had no idea what Keith was about these past 45 years?? Book or no book the guy is a walking living proof you can go to the edge, hang by your pinky finger, and come back to play another gig. As usual, the Disney collective has their heads up their collective arses.



  55. 55

    Where's the rum… why isn't there any rum?



  56. 56

    You have really stooped to the National Enquirer level. This is a fake story. You say "may be removed" and "it's possible that he could be cut." You're so clever not to say anything close to "a source tells us" or "Disney execs are looking at cutting him". No instead you make it up entirely with your own non-fact based suppositions and salaciousness merely for the sake of seeing if people will read this and comment and start a rumor that is not based on anything.
    This website gets more and more worthless.



  57. 57

    of course an addict would describe themselves as someone who was better than others at using drugs …

    he was only meant to have a cameo if they gave him a bigger role its their own faults what the hell did they expect a SAINT…

    58

    What is the surprise here? That Keith Richards did/does drugs or that Disney are cocks. If you're surprised by either you're a fool.

  59. Low says – reply to this


    59

    No!! And what stupid person at Disney is this a shocker to??? It's Keith Richards for Gods sake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  60. 60

    LOL… I'm not a Keith Richards fan, but Disney knew what they hired when they chose Keith Richards, his whole life has been an open book. Not too many curve balls to come out of that book that people don't already know or could imagine. Besides, most kids won't know who he is and may just confuse him with being another skeleton in the movie.



  61. 61

    no they shouldn't. it's not like it's a book that their audience is going to read, and he doesn't even look like himself in the movie. Cut the guy a break, that's what they get for hiring a rolling stone!!



  62. 62

    Unless he wrote this in Seussical form, I seriously doubt that any "families," are going to read this book. "If you want to do drugs, oh yes oh yes, never put in more or death oh yes. Quality not quanity oh yes oh yes" Sorry, lame Dr. Seuss attempt. Seriously, people need to get a clue. I personally am not for it, but it is his life. Who am I to tell him to stop?



  63. 63

    Oh sure, because Disney thought Keith spent all those years in the Stones being a sparkly innocent butterfly spreading glitter and cookies throughout the world



  64. 64

    keith richards is keith richards, its not like its anything new for him



  65. 65

    so silly. i'm pretty sure Disney knew Keith Richard did drugs before casting him. why the hype now? duhhhh DIZNEY you so dumb.



  66. 66

    I don't see your problem-the man is a ROCK STAR and this was his life. He's just being honest.



  67. 67

    LOL — had they never heard of Keith Richards prior to casting?



  68. 68

    No.



  69. 69

    That is truly the dumbest thing I have heard. He is probably one of the most famous drug addicts in the world. His name is practically synonymous with drugs, it's a running gag. They knew that full well when the hired him the first time, this is not new.
