Johnny Depp Sorry for Joking About Assassinating President Donald Trump


The 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' actor apologizes for his insensitive remakes and insists that he 'intended no malice.'
Johnny Depp apologizes for joking about assassinating Donald Trump. The actor made the controversial remarks at the 2017 Glastonbury Festival this week. "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?" he told the crowd. "Maybe it is time." Now he regrets it.

"I apologize for the bad joke I attempted last night in poor taste about President Trump," the 54-year-old Hollywood star says in a statement to PEOPLE. "It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone."

The President himself hasn't commented on the actor's remarks, but the White House has. "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," they said.
