Johnny Depp apologizes for joking about assassinating Donald Trump: ‘I was only trying to amuse’

Johnny Depp was the Glastonbury Festival’s inaugural guest at the new Cineramageddon drive-in theater, and he certainly gave the place a memorable launch. While introducing a screening of his 2004 movie “The Libertine” on Thursday night, the actor made inflammatory statements about President Trump.

“I think he needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark, dark places he could go,” Depp said, according to the Guardian.

He then asked the crowd: “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”

The answer is 1865, when John Wilkes Booth shot and killed Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre.
