Johnny Depp, an American actor who has made a name for himself in the filming industry after playing a wide range of roles successfully in a number of productions is in trouble. Recently, there have been a number of top actors who have been making jokes about the assassination of Donald Trump. This top actor adds to the list after he recently spoke ironically about the assassination of the current American President.
The renowned actor was addressing his fans on Thursday at the Glastonbury arts festival in southwest England when he moved ahead to make the statement that was not taken lightly, especially by the intelligence team.
According to some top reliable sources, Depp is said to have asked his fans whether or not they wanted Trump to be brought right there. The question was met with mixed reactions with some booing and others jeering.
He said: “You misunderstand completely. When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? I want to clarify: I’m not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been awhile, and maybe it’s time.”
White House on Friday condemned that actor’s words. Depp has made his apologies outlining that he was just joking about it and had no bad motive behind his talk. The governance looked at the matter from the perspective that was being interpreted s an allusion to the Scenerio when President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by a top actor by the name Wilkes Booth in 1865.
The actor was in the process of introducing a screening of the 2004 film “The Libertine.” He was playing the role of the womanizing poet John Wilmot, second earl of Rochester. Depp according to Nytimes.com made the acknowledgement that indeed his words could in one way of the other cause damage because of their destructive nature.
President Trump in a number of his tweets and speeches has been calling upon the American population to denounce violence in all of its forms. The White House press secretary, Sean Spicer upon meeting up with Depp told him that they wanted to hold to that standard. He added that there was indeed great need to apply the standard universally.
