Johnny Depp is in hot water after comments he made at an arts festival in Glastonbury, England. He asked the crowd “Jesus Christ. Can we bring Trump here?” — eliciting predictable booing.
Depp elaborated, saying in supposed jest “No, no, no, you’ve misunderstood completely. I’m not insinuating anything, but… by the way, this is going to be in the press, and it will be horrible… but I like that you’re all a part of it. When was the last time an actor assassinated a President?” See his full comments in the video below.
Depp is merely the latest celebrity to use violent rhetoric in regards to the President, echoing last month’s Kathy Griffin photoshoot and comments made in January by Madonna about blowing up the White House.
Will you boycott Johnny Depp’s movies going forward? Tell us in our CBC reader poll!
Speaking of boycotts, are you still angry at Meryl Streep? Vote HERE.
Trump is an immature underdeveloped unqualified embarrassment . Melania wants to stop cyber bullying , she needs to start with her man child husband .
June 29, 2017,11:20 pm
And Trumps teeets re Mika? Zero class. He behaves like a 5th grader with his insults. He’d probably snap her bra if he could.
June 29, 2017,1:52 pm
What is disgusting is that Trump invited Nuggent to the Whit House, after he made threats on a Presidents life.
Trump is clueless and an embarrassment.
So everyone bitching about Depp should’ve just as mad at Trump chumming with Ted.
June 29, 2017,1:40 pm
1. Death threats are never ok
2. To everyone who is boycotting Depp, be sure you also boycott those who threatened Democratic presidents also. If not then you are just a hypocritical narrow minded follower. Principles and values have no political party.
You’ll need to boycott Ted Nuggent folks.
PS, our president is spending time on the 2020 campaign already. Now that is absurd and audacious.

Johnny Depp is a free individual. Free Individuals, in the act of expressing their individuality, will inevitably offend the sensibilities of those around them. This is a necessary evil in any free society. My thoughts about your actions should never be allowed to impinge on those actions, because that would result in a loss of liberty for you with no increase in liberty for me. My only benefit would be the satisfaction with seeing you lose your liberty to offend me. Why would I want to see you lose your liberty? This question lies at the root of intolerance. How others choose to live their lives is their own business, not ours. When we become uncomfortable with the behavior of others, we often choose to blame them and not to blame our own lack of self-assurance. Although no real harm can come from their actions, we feel threatened by them and we retaliate, preferring our own comfort to their liberty. This, my friends, is the real source of the hatred and intolerance that is sweeping the nation.
June 27, 2017,5:12 pm
start Boycotting Trump for the things he has said & done .
June 27, 2017,12:36 pm
did any one boycotted Trump for saying what he said?
no , so why boycott Depp
June 27, 2017,12:34 pm
What if someone stood up and made the statement that perhaps it was time for Johnny Depp to be assassinated, how would he feel about that?
June 26, 2017,4:07 pm
Do you Think pubis and pothead when you see this little clip one saying stuff and the other voyeristically observing like a lap dog?
June 25, 2017,12:27 pm
If you have kids ….kill your TV now! Or your kid will grow up to become similar to what you see in the photo above. Depp PRETENDS to be a cool rebel yet he has no mind of his own. He is clearly being controlled by someone, or something because no true Roma would ever threaten the US President. Get help JD get help before it is too late.
June 25, 2017,12:21 pm
When people take too many substances to the point of being out of control evil spirits “walk in” google it ….google “walk in” this may be find out why so many democrats are acting like evil spirits. I never used to believe n this stuff but it is getting more and more obvious that evil has been let loose like never before.
June 25, 2017,12:14 pm
If SESSIONS would go pick all of these people and charge them with crime of making threats we could watch them in court for free! Ha let’s see them “act” their way out of legal charges!
June 25, 2017,12:09 pm
democrats have become Manchurian candidates ….totally controlled by the mainstream media to do the bidding of the globalists….. not a shred of intelligence left after being totally programmed…. shocking but true
June 25, 2017,12:06 pm
June 25, 2017,12:03 pm
If you want your kids to grow up idolize get these skuzzy characters then keep letting them watch tv.
June 25, 2017,12:02 pm
Ps… Depp……please take a shower already I can smell you by just seeing you! Yikes no wonder why he is getting divorced! Would you want to share a bed with someone who looks like they have been sleeping on the street for months?
June 25, 2017,12:00 pm
His need to please democrats and his hollyweed colleagues is inconsistent with his “rebel” persona. This could indicate he is indeed melting down.
June 25, 2017,11:59 am
Johnny Depp needs to be deported from the united states,
June 25, 2017,10:42 am
Depp Shit and all those like him are vermin. They are trash! What we despise in most celebrities and musicians are the effects of what happens when you succumb to the excesses of their lifestyles. They represent everything that is unnatural and despicable. Most of the women are nasty and will do anything to call themselves entertainers. We never attend or rent movies, concerts or follow these useless individuals on the internet. My husband and I turned the big-screen media off long ago! We have basic TV because my husband watches the weather and FOX News, and we listen to Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh and Clark Howard on the radio. I subscribe to Conservative websites to keep up with certain issues. They keep threatening to leave the U.S. why won’t they? I imagine nobody else wants them. TV is poison for everybody especially children. Let’s get the liberal ideology out of curriculum and on every level of media from the pamphlet in the doctor’s office to the big screen movie. It might take a war.
June 25, 2017,9:34 am
Absolutely! Fed-up and tried if this crap from these elitists who are intelligently bankrupted. Morons!
June 25, 2017,9:11 am
But of course 45 can say anything but suffer no repercussions. Unbelievable considering all he does is lie.
June 24, 2017,7:59 pm
I love Depp’s work.I guess he just doesn’t give a damn though.I don’t want to hear one more treasonous ,terrorist,godless democrat saying they feel threatened.They are the lawless thugs that respect no one’s rights and opinions but their own.They are like rabid dogs running the streets attacking anyone not infected with their disease.They reject our Republic,Family,History,
God,Church,Constitution,Laws and Freedoms.These Demo-nazis need to be stopped now.They are already committing violent acts of war against our citizens ,orchestrated by the Obamas,Warrens,Pelosis and financed by the Soros like scum of this world.
June 24, 2017,6:56 pm
But none of you boycotted Trump or Nugent for their threats.
June 24, 2017,5:54 pm
He was very disrespectful and that is not right. He should loose his job plus like Kathy Griffith
June 24, 2017,5:34 pm
Wife beater as well another killer liberal , too bad I liked his movies
June 24, 2017,4:43 pm
Definitely! We should boycott all these left-wing Hollywood people for their foul mouths and actions. Let’s hit them in their wallets where it hurts!!
June 24, 2017,3:00 pm
Entertainer,s are PAID, too ENTERTAIN! Who cares what their Political view,s are? Do you not; have a Mind of Your OWN?
June 24, 2017,2:20 pm
Libtard idiot. Never watched this queer anyway.
June 24, 2017,1:19 pm
Very sick for Depp to say any thing like that.
June 24, 2017,9:43 am
I was surprised and disappointed by Depp. This was worse than tasteless two days or so after a gun assault on members of Congress. Definitely boycotting him. I really don’t get this hatred of Trump. Truly stupidity.
June 24, 2017,9:18 am
But I forgot to say, I cannot boycott anything that I never spend money on anyway. I don’t go to his movies, nor by them in any form. So I cannot boycott what I don’t buy. I don’t like coffee, so I have never bought coffee.
But I am not boycotting coffee… I just prefer to buy and partake of tea instead.
June 24, 2017,9:08 am
Does anyone see the irony of the Depp historical assassination innuendo that I do? It is clear to me he was referring to John Wilkes Booth assassination of Abraham Lincoln. And if that was to character an assassination of a despised tyrant president by a heroic figure actor… it fails to do so miserably.
Yes, it is a fact both Lincoln and Trump are republican presidents.
One desperately tried to keep the Union together and try and work things out and heal the nation. And along the way bring abolition to free slaves.
The present one is trying to keep the same nation safe from terrorists and invasion. He beckons that the opposing party try and work with the will of the people to restore, repair, our economy. To improve our ways of life (including better health care), ensure or rights and liberty. Unity for the sake of a better America. And along the way helping to create more good paying jobs for whomever desires them. Thus eliminating the enslavement to poverty so many cannot seem to escape.
John Wilkes Booth believed he was an important voice and call to action to depose a despised tyrant. And that he would be hailed as a hero and if caught and killed, become a martyr.
But nothing could have been further from the truth. Abraham Lincoln had chose a southern Democrat to share his ticket in the 1864 re-election campaign. Lincoln knew the war was all but won. And it was time to do things to begin as he said in his second inauguration address. John Wilkes Booth was attending the address.
“With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan—to do all which may achieve and cherish a just, and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations.” – Abraham Lincoln
After Lincoln’s assassination the hopes of a peaceful transition back to peace and reunification, were gone. There would be pain and suffering inflicted by real tyrants in retaliation, revenge and for monetary gains.
Had Abraham Lincoln survived these things would not have been tolerated.
And as the assassin who killed Lincoln and with him the hopes of southerners to return to a peaceful way of life. And to be allowed to heal the wounds of the war as quickly as possible… died with Lincoln.
And John Wilkes Booth was NOT seen as hero nor martyr. He was seen as a deranged man who took the hopes and dreams of Americans north and south away like a murderous thief.
Summary of the lesson here. Johnny Depp should not wish to be associated with John Wilkes Booth. And while just like with Lincoln, Trump is disliked by half of America, but also loved by the other half. But both presidents deserved to try and do what they believed to best for our country. Without threats of assassination. In politics we pick and fight our battles on capitol hill.
A civil society demands we behave like intelligent, civil adults. Not barbarians.
June 24, 2017,9:03 am
Joanie, love your comment 😄short but sweet!! 😅
June 24, 2017,8:17 am
Yes I would!! He THREATEND the Presidents life. He should pay his dues. Should be in prison, & lose his career. Same for Griffin & Madonna. Their all disease minded liberal scum. So full of hate!!! Their thinking is violent & dangerous. Suzie, you hit the nail on the head!! He should be charged with treason. These liberals logic us so evil. Their low life garbage.
June 24, 2017,8:14 am
Enough is enough. Apparently these brainless actors as well as too many would be late night talk show hosts and comedians have failed to note that liberalism isn’t all it’s hyped up to be, and that more than 1/2 of the population doesn’t subscribe to their antics or opinions.In fact. too many seem so hard up for attention that they would literally throw their career down the proverbial toilet by saying what is so darned offensive that they can not and will not be forgiven for their remarks. In fact, some remarks being literally dangerous to their own freedom as they can and will be arrested and imprisoned if they continue to go to the length’s that some have described . We are all entitled to our own opinions and political beliefs but we are not entitled to try to force those beliefs down the throats and into the homes and minds of the entire public. The arrogance of these people is simply astonishing. Are they doing drugs and have they literally fried their brains ! Their business, their living and their pocket books are dependent upon keeping the public happy. Their behavior is not healthy nor is it going to be lucrative in the future for them.
June 24, 2017,8:11 am
Time he was given the griffin treatment, end his career,, any actor/celeb that speakes out against the president and makes threats of assignation,, should be charged and jailed for treason,,Depp Carey, griffin, madonna , and all the rest of these insipid satanist,,,,,any threats to the president, country and White House is treason,,, Depp is well know for his evilness and satanic worship ,,,boycott hellywood
June 24, 2017,7:32 am
Way down rant…Oh Theresa, SATAN has gotten to you,,
PRAY FOR GODS’ HELP.
June 24, 2017,6:58 am

June 24, 2017,6:51 am
YES SHIP THESE HOLLYWOOD FREAKS TO NORTH KOREA.MAYBE THEY’LL COME OUT OF THERE STUPOR.
June 24, 2017,6:22 am

June 24, 2017,6:20 am
Johnny Depp is such a whack job. I stopped watching him years ago. He’s an odd duck that’s always on something. You can’t understand what he says. because he rambles on ans slurs his words. What a MORON !!!
June 24, 2017,2:02 am
As I said before maybe it is time to haul in every actor that makes a joke about assassinating the president and let them know that if something happens to the president that they will be suspects in conspiring to harm the president, maybe it will give them something else to think about besides making jokes, that is if they have a brain to think with, who knows they may not be joking
June 24, 2017,1:00 am
Yes, his career and rot. I have and I will boycott any celebrity who spews harmful threats toward president Trump and GOP members.
June 24, 2017,12:10 am
There should be a limit to everything. People with no boundaries are dangerous people.
June 23, 2017,11:44 pm
For that comment, he should not be allowed back on the USA!…if he is allowed back in, then Depp should be visited by the Security Service people. Yes, I will boycott Griffin, Madonna and now Depp too. He’s the new idiot!!
June 23, 2017,11:41 pm
John mccormick think of it this way, to continue to see his movies, is like him offering you to share a drink with him only to find out he URINATED in your glass!!!
June 23, 2017,11:27 pm
Johnny Depp by his own actions is a proven idiot. You cannot Boycott what you never watch.
June 23, 2017,11:17 pm
Johnny ( “IN DEEP SH*T” ) Depp!!!
June 23, 2017,11:12 pm
Was looking forward to seeing his latest movie but will be sitting this one out. And sorry but what he said is not a joke. Not funny!
June 23, 2017,10:54 pm
June 23, 2017,8:59 pm
Just read numerous previous posts. Are you folks serious??? Do you not talk to your neighbor if he has different political beliefs? Do you not watch your favorite sports team or change your doctor if he’s a democrat? Holy crap you folks are nuts. And yes, I’m a republican who voted for trump.
June 23, 2017,8:53 pm
Hell no. He’s my favorite actor…and I’m a republican. Could care less about his politics. I like him for his acting….not his political beliefs. Come on folks, lighten up!!!!
June 23, 2017,8:41 pm
I have not watched more than an hour of television nor have I attended a movie in over a year due to the rederic of the media and the over paid actors
June 23, 2017,8:35 pm
June 23, 2017,8:17 pm
I used to like Johnny Depp, but now he is anathema to me.
June 23, 2017,7:54 pm
Hollywood snowflakes, that’s great Chris. I have no use for them anymore either, they have no idea how normal everyday Americans live these days. They need to just accept the fact that we did not want Killary and accept our American President Trump!
June 23, 2017,7:44 pm
Quit watching anything with Depp in it, when he ran off to Europe, because he couldn’t use his dope in this country. So everyone else will have to make their own decision, as to how they are going to deal with this doper and his politics I sure don’t agree with, so I’m not going to spend my money so he can go buy more dope and try to spread his communist politics.
June 23, 2017,6:58 pm
get ready for the dead silence, Johnny. Don’t let the door hit you in the back. BaaaHaaaa BoooooHooooo. Are you going to cry during your fake apology too? please just melt away like the other Hollywood snowflakes. Not so important now, eh?
June 23, 2017,6:57 pm
if people in Hollywood were smart, they wouldn’t make their political views public at all,bc they lose 1/2 of their fans for either side they choose.
June 23, 2017,6:45 pm
Please jail ALL these PIGS who’re Disrespecting our USA President, so they’ll realize that they’e not “ALL THAT” after all. I really resent them ALL for not acknowledging my VOTE. Never seen so much EVIL during my lifetime.
June 23, 2017,6:39 pm
I dont give drug addicts $
June 23, 2017,6:34 pm
He once called America a puppy.
June 23, 2017,6:23 pm
He needs a visit from the Secret Service and arrested. It is illegal to threaten the President. He is no different than anyone else. Maybe detained from reentering US due to his illegal activity.
June 23, 2017,6:08 pm
HOLLYWEED PLEASE LOOSE MORE MILLIONS DO A MOVIE WITH JON DRIPE..REMEMBER GEORGIA !!!!!!
June 23, 2017,5:57 pm
June 23, 2017,5:49 pm
It is a federal crime to make threatening statements about a US President. Depp should go to jail.
June 23, 2017,5:45 pm
No Maria Ortega making death threats towards the president or towards anyone is not right and sure isn’t something to joke about. To many fruitcakes out there that take morons like him serious.
June 23, 2017,5:40 pm
FREEDOM OF SPEECH!!!! THANK YOU JOHNNY FOR HAVING THE COURAGE AND INTELLIGENCE TO SAY IT!!! ANY WORLD LEADER THAT IS ACTIVELY RAPING THE POOR TO MAKE THE RICH RICHER, WILLING TO RAPE/POLLUTE THE PLANET FOR PROFIT ALLOWS THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL MACHINE CREATE WARS THE LINE THEIR POCKETS DENY GLOBAL WARMING SCREW HIM AND HIS GOONS THAT ARE ACTIVELY LOOTING THE WORLD! PACK OF TREASONOUS A-HOLES! MORE SHOULD THINK AND CONSIDER THESE WORDS! REMEMBER THAT OL’ RACIST SLAVE OWNING CHILD RAPIST JEFFERSON?! WHO DID HE SHOT ON THE WHITE HOUSE STEPS?! AND HE’S A SUPPOSED AMERICAN HERO RIGHT?! SO…….LET THE SOUND OF JOHNNY’S WORDS RING THE TRUTH FOR WHICH THEY STAND!
June 23, 2017,5:39 pm
These liberal celebrities morons think they are better and know what we need. Got news for you liberal moron. I can think and do for my self. I am not brain dead like you and have common sense to know that making threats at the President well land your butt in jail morons.
June 23, 2017,5:36 pm
just another has been ,not worth watching .a big mouth with no scence goodbuy as=hole .OLD VET
June 23, 2017,5:34 pm
He’s a good actor and a terrible human being. All must be responsible and accountable how they use freedom of speech like they are with freedom to own use guns except cops of course.
June 23, 2017,5:18 pm
Good & well Maria, freedom of speech is fine however not violence & giving a pass to those who will react when famous people are giving them the free ticket to act on. Be against who you want but do we teach kids that if they don’t get their way then they resort to violence? No, live with it, do what we can to make a difference the next time. We are like a third world country otherwise. We sre all smarter than that. For years many Americans were not happy with an elected politician but didn’t resort to violence. Use that energy to make a positive difference till the next election & give those in office a chance to prove themselves without all the violent interference. Let them do their job to help all of us make things better for our future & the future of our children. They are not learning anything by allof this & they will be our future leaders. People with a pkatform like Johnny Dep need to be smarter in using his brain. After all, we ALL made him what is today & tgey should learn, it can all come to an abrubt stop too. They are not above the law & act too high & mighty due to their fame.
June 23, 2017,5:09 pm
my dear Maria I have had no contact from Trump he has not told me how to feel, I must not be important enough to contact. But stupid I don’t think so you see I would boycott anyone who
would assassinate anyone, and the person who advertises that people should be assassinated really in my opinion needs to get help mentally. The bible states THOU SHALT NOT KILL, and even if your not religious commom sense tells you that killing is wrong
June 23, 2017,5:08 pm
Jane it was a joke. He just responded to the question he was asked. And everyone laughed. It was a joke…everyone has there own thoughts. God bless you and your family.
June 23, 2017,5:01 pm
He’s a awesome actor look at all the good he does for the children’s hospitals.
Your all stupid to boycott Johney Deep. The only reason you all are boycotting him is because that’s what the president Trump what’s you to do. What happened to the 1st amendment of freedom of free speech.And plus it was a joke. You all who voted yes are being such good little boys and girls. Your doing exactly what the president Trump tells you to do. Next he’ll say give me all your money and you’ll probably say yes of course anything for you president Trump.
June 23, 2017,4:57 pm
Bill & Chuck – +10!
June 23, 2017,4:54 pm
If you like him as an actor (I do), watch his movies (I will). Keep in mind that most actors are, off screen, IDIOTS! Anyone who cares what actors say off screen is also an IDIOT!
June 23, 2017,4:51 pm
Maria… noone has a ‘right’ to threaten the life of the President (or anyone else). Johnny Depp is an aging bore that is getting nearer to meeting his maker. I don’t think he’ll be quite so happy in eternity.
June 23, 2017,4:49 pm
He’s nothing but trash.
June 23, 2017,4:45 pm
I won’t see his movies anymore. I just seen the last Pirates of the Caribbean. It was good. But I don’t care for people who insight violence towards our President. I think all Hollywood actors shouldn’t voice preference one way or the other.
The Liberals don’t want Religion anywhere so I guess we should start asking for Politics be put out of the Awards and the actors mouths. As Billy Joel said, I didn’t come here to talk Politics.
June 23, 2017,4:34 pm
Depp has the right to free speech. And Trump is an ineffective president.
June 23, 2017,4:33 pm
Was all set to buy the latest Pirates of the Caribbean installment but not now. It is in poor taste for anyone to “joke” about assassinating anyone. My, Johnny Depp sure has aged…….
June 23, 2017,4:31 pm
He’s always been a dim wit, strange and unentertaining. He just cubed his loser status with that remark. The ‘ psychotic ‘comedian’ posting a decapitatated head of Trump make a good pair. They both need to be commuted !
June 23, 2017,4:28 pm
I stopped supporting folly land when treasonous Hanoi jane got off.
June 23, 2017,4:23 pm
I too liked his movies, but not that much. I can do without him.And will!
June 23, 2017,4:19 pm
Did conservatives boycott Trump for suggesting a second amendment solution to Hillary being elected?
Did Conservatives boycott Ted Nugent for his threats?
Hypocrisy runs wide in the Conservative world.
June 23, 2017,4:18 pm
I used to like his movies, but will no longer support him with my money!
June 23, 2017,4:16 pm
I never could see what all the fuss was about! Without camera tricks and stunt doubles, he could not finish a scene! He always sound like he has a mouth full of marbles! MAYBE HE WILL GO PLAY IN TRAFFIC IN NIECE!!!!
June 23, 2017,4:15 pm
Already did. Was planning on seeing the new “Pirates ” movie tonight, but not now!
June 23, 2017,4:15 pm
He is a DUMBASS!!
June 23, 2017,4:14 pm
I don’t watch much of the hollywood product, unless I know it to be conservative in nature. I’m a musician that won’t support other musicians whenever they get political. Most know absolutely nothing of American history or our form of Government.
June 23, 2017,4:13 pm
Johnny is without a doubt the consummate asshole
June 23, 2017,4:09 pm
Will gladly boycott him. His movies are subpar anyway.
June 23, 2017,4:07 pm
What a horrible reptile.
June 23, 2017,3:59 pm
I have never been a fan anyway. I have never seen one of his movies. He seems like he is on drugs/alcohol by the way he slurs his speech. He has been known to beat his wife in the past so he is a violent thug. The real question here is where the HELL is the Secret Service? You have all of these Hollywood idiots making threats against the president of the United States and they are getting away with it. If any average American citizen did this, they would be in jail. Johnny Depp is too much of a wussy boy to try anything. These morons put the word out in the hopes that they can take advantage of some loner loser to do the “dirty deed.” The Secret Service had better start taking these threats seriously and have consequences for these maniacs. (KATHY GRIFFIN, MADONNA, ASHLEY JUDD, and JOHNNY DEPP to name just a few)
June 23, 2017,3:57 pm
he’s a jerk-no need to go to his effort to be a person on the screen
June 23, 2017,3:54 pm
Shows his demenor and proves Amber was telling truth.
June 23, 2017,3:51 pm
Never liked him to begin with, & have no use for him.
June 23, 2017,3:51 pm
Learn how Antonin Scalia helped change America’s courts forever in our interview with his friend Bryan Garner, author of the new memoir “Nino and Me”!
