Disney CEO on Abuse Allegations Against Johnny Depp: I'm 'Not Worried. We Have Jack Sparrow'

In an astoundingly tone deaf case of choosing bros before...common decency, Disney CEO Bob Iger has spoken out in something resembling support of Johnny Depp because the star has made the company so much dang money by playing Captain Jack Sparrow.


In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Iger was asked for a comment on Depp’s “personal problems.” (That’s a nice way of saying “domestic violence allegations.”) Iger responded, simply, “Not worried about it.” When being asked whether or not he thinks the “scandal will pass,” he added:

“I don’t know whether it passes or not. We have Jack Sparrow.”

Does this man know he could have just said, oh, “I can’t comment on Johnny’s personal life,” instead of implying that he doesn’t really mind abuse allegations made against his stars as long as they continue making him money? Guess not!

The Chicago Police Department is searching for Sinead O’Connor “after someone in her family told cops she’s threatening to kill herself.” Writes TMZ:

Chicago PD got a call from Irish authorities saying Sinead contacted her family an hour ago and said she was suicidal and planned to jump off a bridge in the Chicago area.


TMZ obtained scanner audio from the PD giving officers the heads up. We’re told there’s not an active search ... but cops were told to be on the lookout.

This marks the second time O’Connor, who has a history of struggling with mental health issues, has been reported as suicidal this year.
