Johnny Depp Jokes About A Trump Assassination: 'Maybe It's Time'

INQUISITR  . . . "Perhaps what’s even in more bad taste, the hipsters in the audience cheered what the Pirates of the Caribbean star had to say, according to British media reports. . . . "When someone in the audience apparently asked him about Trump, Johnny Depp reportedly had this to say, according to the Guardian and the Telegraph.“ 'I think he needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark, dark places he could go. It is just a question — I’m not insinuating anything. By the way, this is going to be in the press. It will be horrible. I like that you are all a part of it. When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it has been a while, and maybe it is time.' ”

Rick Moran comments on this in American Thinker:   . . . "Depp, like other celebrities seeking attention, knows the quickest way to gain tons of media exposure is to advocate the assassination of the president of the United States. His "qualifiers" notwithstanding, Depp knew that the assembled press would eat up his John Wilkes Booth reference and blast it all over the world.

"It's pathetic. Johnny Depp's descent will not be stopped by his gaining cheap headlines or calculated PR moves. They used to say that there's no such thing as bad publicity as long as they spell your name correctly. Only in the Hollywood cocoon is that still true."
Why don't we tire of Hollywood?  . . . "Pop pioneer Madonna, for example, celebrated the so-called “Women’s March” following Trump’s inauguration by telling crowds she “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”
Comedian Kathy Griffin found herself in serious career trouble, losing tour dates and endorsement deals after she staged a bloody mock decapitation of the President last month."
