Early on in filming, things got a little hairy when a man dressed as a pirate, complete with a live parrot, pulled a knife on security as he tried to board the Black Pearl, Jack Sparrow's pirate ship. The man was able to get as far as he did because people thought he was an extra, since he happened to be in the one place in the world where a pirate costume is good camouflage. After making some threats, the man fled into the bushes, disgracing the honor of pirates everywhere.

Actually, he might have been dressed as your weird cousin who "went to Burning Man ... for six months."
Meanwhile, the film has been having several animal problems as well. Co-star Jack the Monkey, a capuchin who's been portrayed by several different monkeys over the course of the series, was placed in quarantine by Australian animal control. This should come as a surprise to nobody, because Australia has a notable interest in keeping any more potentially dangerous animals out. However, this turned laughable and then very serious when Depp's wife Amber Heard attempted to smuggle her Yorkies into the country. She was caught, and will likely face a hefty fine in lieu of jail time.
Meanwhile, her participation in this crime continues to go unpunished.
