Breaking News

Johnny Depp is apologizing for his joke about assassinating President Trump, saying he didn't mean any harm by it.

Johnny released a statement admitting the "bad joke" he told Thursday to the Glastonbury Festival crowd was in poor taste.

“It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice," his apology read. "I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone.”

Depp had joked, "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?"

The White House condemned Depp for the joke and called on Hollywood to speak out against this type of violent rhetoric.
