Johnny Depp has been branded a "cannibal" by tribesmen on the Dominica island, where the Hollywood actor is currently filming the third Pirates Of The Caribbean movie. Members of the Garifuna tribe are furious with a scene in which Depp's character CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW is being roasted alive. Chief CHARLES WILLIAMS says, "The film's depiction of our natives as flesh-craving savages is grossly untrue and very politically incorrect. "Of course, there was violence and bloodshed in the past. But to stigmatise us today is very wrong. We will continue our fight when Hollywood returns." The island's natives are also threatening to boycott future sequels because of a scene which depicts Depp munching on a severed toe. Depp says, "People were like, 'You can't do that in the movie.' But it's played for laughs and gets them. The last thing we want to do is offend anyone. But it's fantasy and I think people realise that."

Johnny's right! I can't believe the island people are up in arms about this..come on...it's just a movie. NOBODY is going to think the Dominican people cannablize anyone today! It did happen in the past, maybe not with these people, (maybe Haiti) but it did happen! This is just for fun...people need to lighten up...sometimes things are easier to forgive with a laugh..get a grip! It's fantasy.

Irishmeow your so totally right! Man it's just a film and it's based on the past, of course these things happened just like how pirates existed! The film ain't even out in cinemas in some places and people are already starting to give the film makers and Johnny Depp grief! Ignore them guys because they're just saying that so that they can make some money for themselves! Pathetic i know! Johhny Depp is the best and the most loyal person i have ever known, he would never offend anyone, if he thought that this scene would offend them then he would not have agreed to do it
