The star of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has found himself in great trouble. In fact, some of his fans have lately been joking about it saying that he is actually in more hot water than, well, an actual pirate in the Caribbean.
This pretty decent Donald Trump impersonator Johnny Depp was introducing his 2004 film The Libertine at the Glastonbury Festival in England when he suddenly posed the question, “Can we bring Trump here?”According to some reliable sources, the crowd answered with a resounding “no.”
Depp proceeded to assert that Trump needed “help.”It was pretty clear that the 54-year-old actor was not about to slow his anti-Trump roll any time soon. In fact he went ahead to say provide a rather cringeworthy sound bite: “This is going to be in the press, and it will be horrible. But I like that you’re all a part of it. When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”
It goes without saying that the actor was indeed referring to the 1865 assassination of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth who according to Theguardian.com used to be an actor as well. After his “joke” about assassinating the leader of the free world, the actor made numerous efforts to do damage control. He is reportedly outlined to have added that he wasn’t an actor but someone who lied for a living.
As would have been expected, the crowd laughed wildly at the actor’s jokes. To the least of the celebrity’s knowledge, the Secret Service on its part wasn’t finding the assassination joke very laughable.
The fact that recently the House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was shot at the practice for a Congressional baseball game has raised the heat. It was a matter that deeply upset a lot of people. Making the kind of remark the actor made was not going to be taken as easily as he could have expected.
