Jack Sparrow Is Staying Put — Abuse Claims Against Johnny Depp Don’t Have Disney Worried About Pirates Of The Caribbean‘s Future

We’re gonna be seasick.

Johnny Depp is currently wrapped up in the most tumultuous divorce of the year, and once again, his prominent industry peers don’t seem to care very much about Amber Heard‘s disturbing domestic abuse claims.

Disney CEO Bob Iger became the latest Hollywood power player to speak out about the Pirates of the Caribbean actor’s personal problems on Wednesday… but he seems almost too lackadaisical about the whole ordeal.

The 65-year-old businessman sat down with The Hollywood Reporter this week to discuss the grand opening of Shanghai Disneyland Park, but when the topic of Jack Sparrow’s role in the Pirates ride came up, Bob didn’t seem at all bothered by the drama.

In fact, while Bob doesn’t necessarily think the public is going to forget about Amber’s accusations anytime soon… he’s not that worried about their effect on the Pirates brand:

THR: “Do you have Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean in the park?”
BI: “Yes.”
THR: “And Johnny Depp’s personal problems?”
BI: “Not worried about it.”
THR: “The scandal will pass?”
BI: “I don’t know whether it passes or not… We have Jack Sparrow.”
THR: “You think people separate.”
BI: “Right.”

Is he right? Or will Amber’s horror stories make the boat ride a little less comfortable for families? What about the upcoming movie??

Do YOU think Jack Sparrow should be removed from Pirates of the Caribbean?
