Actor Johnny Depp might be walking the plank for his recent comments about “the last time an actor assassinated a President.”
Depp was on stage at the Glastonbury Festival in the U.K., a performing arts event spanning several days, when he made the derogatory remarks about U.S. President Donald Trump that possibly hint at wanting to kill the Commander in Chief.
“Can we bring Trump here,” Depp asked the audience, which disapproved. “I think he needs help.”
“When was the last time an actor assassinated a President,” Depp continued.
“I want to clarify, I’m not an actor. I lie for a living,” he added.
The President’s son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted “Ha, Depp wants to make social commentary,” and linked to an article that claims Depp’s management team “knew of alleged abuse of Amber Heard.”
Depp is famous for many films during a career that span decades, including “Edward Scissorhands,” “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise.
His private life also became a public display during his recent, nasty divorce from actress Amber Heard.
Diamond and Silk, the self-proclaimed “most outspoken and loyal supporters” of Trump, tweeted that it “appears that Johnny Depp may have threatened the [President].”
“If so, Secret Service should appear on his doorsteps. He should be arrested,” they exclaimed.
