Disney Worries About Keith Richards' Dad's Ashes Comment

(World Entertainment News Network) - Rolling Stone Keith Richards' recent comment he snorted his father's ashes mixed with cocaine has left bosses at family movie studio Disney squirming.

Richards, who has since insisted he was joking, is appearing in the upcoming Disney sequel 'Pirates of The Caribbean: At World's End' and the company's marketing department is worried.

Disney senior vice president Dennis Rice tells British music magazine NME, who broke the original story, "When (a senior Disney publicist) forwarded the (Richards) story to me, I thought 'How are we going to spin this?'"

He adds, "Keith won't be doing a lot of publicity for this movie."
