Censors have cut scenes of Chow Yun-Fat as a bald, scarred pirate in the new “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie, saying they insult China’s people, the main state news agency said Friday.

Xinhua said Chow’s time on the screen in “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” had “been slashed in half by censors in China for vilifying and defacing the Chinese.”

The version of the Hollywood blockbuster released in China earlier this week shows only about 10 minutes of Chow’s scenes compared with 20 minutes in the version seen in the rest of the world, it said.[Full Text]
