Hollywood actor Johnny Depp has sparked a storm by seemingly threatening to kill US President Donald Trump.
His controversial comments came during an appearance at Britain’s Glastonbury Festival where he presented his film ‘The Libertine’.

“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” he asked the crowd which responded with a mix of jeers, boos and laughter.

“I want to clarify,” he added, “I’m not an actor. I lie for a living [but] it’s been a while. Maybe it’s about time.”

Several other US celebrity have threatened violence against Trump since his election but there’s been marked criticism on social
media of Depp as it comes days after a gunman shot and wounded a US politician and four others in Viriginia as they practised for a cross-party charity baseball match.

We’ll have to call CAA tomorrow morning and see if they’re going to drop Johnny Depp, or if they’ll still represent a wannabe assassin.
