Kaya Scodelario, who portrays Carina Smyth in the long-awaited installment of "Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge" commented on details of the filming that has uncovered a controversial fact in which the filming of the film is now involved.

PETA and Pirates of the Caribbean...what happened to the monkey on the set?

The actress also known for playing Effy Stonem in the British series Skins told a British newspaper the complexity of shooting for the monkey that is part of the film. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has defined the fact as animal abuse

"The most memorable member of the cast was the monkey, because he vomited all the time," said the actress. "He had a very small stomach and when we were rolling on the boat he was vomiting in the middle of the scenes, it was very funny," he added.

This fueled the concern of the animal organization, which issued a statement filing Disney and the production team behind the film. In the document they described as "unacceptable" what happened during filming and stated that "there is no human way of forcing an animal to act in a film."

This is not the first time that the animal organization is facing the film industry. One of the most recent cases was seen earlier this year when images of the recordings of "The reason to be with you" were posted, showing a terrified dog being forced into the water.

What do you think about PETA's position on these statements?
