Whitey Bulger Is Not Happy with Johnny Depp & 'Black Mass'

Whitey Bulger Is Not Happy with Johnny Depp & 'Black Mass'

Johnny Depp‘s new movie Black Mass hit theaters this weekend and is set to do great business at the box office, but James “Whitey” Bulger, the gangster he plays in the film, is not happy with the finished product.

Johnny Depp might as well have been playing the Mad Hatter all over again as far as James Bulger is concerned,” Bulger‘s defense attorney Hank Brennan told People. “Hollywood greed is behind the rush to portray my client, and the movie missed the real scourge created in my client’s case, the real menace to Boston during that time and in other mob cases around the country – the federal government’s complicity in each and every one of those murders with the top echelon informant program.”

Bulger, now 86, is currently serving two life sentences in a Florida maximum security federal prison and he does not plan on watching the movie if he ever gets the chance.

“The movie missed the real story and instead made a cartoon mockery out of Jimmy Bulger,” Brennan added.

    Of course, Bulger wouldn’t like (did he watch it? because he’s on jail for the next 300 years). He’s the villian in this movie

    Bulger is a criminal. It doesn’t matter how Hollywood portrays him. He’s still a criminal. He’s got morals all of a sudden? Please.

    He is Villian and proud to be but here he says he was helped

  • VanityInsecurity

    I think Bulger’s issue is he was enabled to do all the crimes he committed w/ help from the FBI. So guess he feels they should have received the same sentence as he did?

  • SquidBillie

    Of course, nothing was Bulger’s fault, according to his lawyer. He was and is scum.

    Not just a criminal…a psychopath.

    Why people even go to a Hollywood movie in the first place is beyond me. Hollywood wood show you a blank screen if you paid for it which some sheeple would I’m sure , that is if Hollywood told you to.

    I’m a distant relative of Jimmy. He was my father’s age. What people don’t know is that Jimmy was not only a socio but he was also a dissociate. He has dissociative identity disorder. With me he hated me and other times he loved me. I remember a time when he hated me and I pinned him down on a floor and wouldn’t let him up until he said uncle and he never had me hurt afterwards because he loved me, lol. When the movie Departed came out I watched it. I was amazed at all the story parts in it. They were all based on true incidents but of course many facts were twisted. Like for example the undercover trooper who was thrown off a building roof. Didn’t happen that way in real life. What really happened was a state trooper working undercover was caught by a clingon associate member of the winter hill gang. This clingon I’ll call him aka wannabe tied up the trooper there on the roof and when a relative of Jimmys’ went up on the roof after finding out about it, he had a fight with the clingon and pushed the clingon off the roof and then untied the trooper and they both fled. In the scene when the van full of winter hill gang members pulled up next and a shootout with troopers began this relative was the individual who jumped into the van and fled with the gang. Back at the clubhouse the wounded gang member questioned the relative and the relative was able to get away from getting caught with a white lie and the gang member believed him. They were actually going to cut open the wounded gang member and operate on him there inside the clubhouse but law officials arrived and took him away in an ambulance and the wounded gang member died on the way to the hospital. Believe it or not Jimmy was more verbal intimidating than he was physically dangerous.
