Johnny Depp Apologizes for Joking About Assassinating Trump

Johnny Depp has issued an apology for his remarks about assassinating President Trump, which he made on stage at the 2017 Glastonbury Festival this week.

“I apologize for the bad joke I attempted last night in poor taste about President Trump,” he said in a statement to JustJared.com. “It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone.”

While Trump himself has not spoken out about the comment, the White House has released a statement condemning the remarks.

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,” the official White House statement read.

    Eh, it’s a joke we’ve all thought of many times. I’m sure his own security team thinks about it.

  • TaraTeller

    gee, depp’s managers say otherwise.

    Good that he realized he upset all those deplorable Trump supporters. Who complained to the White House about it.

    Didn’t lie dear, the guy is a psycho scumbag.

    Who cares, like all the trump lovers didn’t say horrific things about Obama. Like there aren’t any ropes being hung around the White House. People suck, always have, always will.

    I’m more disappointed in him for apologising for making a joke. Free speech seems to be disappearing in the US, I know he was in the UK when he said it, but the reaction has come from those Trump nutters in the US, the same ones who have demonised Shakespeare. I seem to remember effigies of Obama being hung from trees.

    The wife beater who has been arrested for DV was Amber Heard.

  • erni.m@bluewin.ch

    Of course, they are sued for millions. They tell very strange things and they had no proof. Amber Heard has dropped the case with prejudice. She cannot file again

    It was a bad joke. Trump is definitely no Abraham Lincoln.
    Trump should worry more about his own words.
