Johnny Depp Went Too Far With His Trump Joke…
Well, it’s not like Johnny Depp is the most reserved person in commenting his true feelings, is he?
But this time he took a joke way too far…
Depp made reference to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by an actor as well and made the following comment,
“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”
It was during an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival that this comment slipped out of Depp’s tongue.
“I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”
Shortly after the news broke about Depp’s comment, the White House was quick to issue the following statement,
“President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and it’s sad that others like Johnny Depp have not followed his lead,”
“I hope that some of Mr. Depp’s colleagues will speak out against this type of rhetoric as strongly as they would if his comments were directed to a Democrat elected official.”
Then Depp knew it the time is right to issue an apology.
He told People magazine,
“It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone.”
Depp is not the only A-lister that has been in trouble over comments or jokes about the President.
Kathy Griffin took it too far in partaking in a photoshoot with a fake bloody plastic head that resembled Mr. Trump. She also issued an apology and she was dropped from her gig in co-hosting at the CNN’s New Year’s Eve show.
Do you think Johnny Depp went too far or do you think it was an acceptable comment?
