‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ Slammed By Peta After Kaya Scodelario Monkey Vomit Anecdote

'Hollywood must learn there’s no safe or humane way to force a wild animal to perform.'

‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ has been criticised by Peta, following an unusual anecdote from one of its stars, Kaya Scodelario.

In a recent interview, the actress reportedly said it was “hilarious” that a monkey used for the ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’ movie “would just projectile vomit in the middle of scenes”, and her comments haven’t gone down well with animal rights campaigners.

According to the paper, she said: “The most memorable cast member was the monkey because he threw up all the time.

“He had a very tiny stomach and when we were filming on the boat he would just projectile vomit in the middle of scenes, which I found hilarious.”

While ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’ faired reasonably at the box office, it didn’t exactly delight critics and currently has a dismal Rotten Tomatoes score, with 31%.
