Johnny Depp Joked About Assassinating Donald Trump

Johnny Depp, accused domestic abuser and
confirmed dumbass, made a dumb joke Thursday night while giving
at talk at the Glastonbury festival before screening The
, the 2004 flop that he’s currently trying to convince
people is actually quite good. During the conversation, the
reanimated carcass asked the crowd in a voice that sounded like
it was gurgling out of the mouth of a malnourished toad caught
in a pipe under a sink whose drain has been clogged with garlic
peels, spinach leaves, and diced tomatoes, “Can you
bring Trump here?”

Per the New York Times, “the remark was met with
booing and jeering,” but he continued, saying:

“You misunderstand completely. When was the last time an
actor assassinated a president? I want to clarify: I’m not an
actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been a while and
maybe it’s time… By the way, this is going to be in the
press and it’ll be horrible. It’s just a question; I’m not
insinuating anything.”

Oof, there’s a lot in there to unpack in there! First of all,
it’s yet another example of a dumb celebrity making a lazy,
entirely unhelpful, and perhaps even harmful joke about killing
President Trump. Second of all, he says he “lies for a living,”
which—while a “joke,” I guess—is particularly alarming given
everything his Very Recent History with calling, oh, people
like Amber Heard a liar. Third of all, you could
almost interpret this as Depp suggesting that
actor/assassin John Wilkes Booth’s actions were… desirable
(by him, at least).

The point is that Johnny Depp is a dumbass who did something
several times more inflammatory and worthy of outrage than
Kathy Griffin. And it looks like that
outrage has already begun.

Kim Kardashian bought a Cartier watch acquired
by Jackie Kennedy Onassis in February 1963,
just months before the death of her husband, for $379,500.
Per TMZ, Christie’s only
expected it to rake in $120,000.

Though she bid anonymously by phone, I like to imagine this all
went down like it did in The First Wives Club. (SJP is
Kim, obviously.)


Speaking of the Kardashians, look who started
playing the Flat Tummy tea game!

  • Ali Fedotowsky-Manno “is busy planning her
    daughter’s birthday party, balancing work and life, and
    partnering with great brands such as goodnessKNOWS snack
    squares to inform others about the importance of mindful
    snacking.” Who isn’t! [OK!]
  • Chance made fun of Aftermath Records (he
    called it Can’t Do Math records) and then apologized to
    Dr. Dre. Oop. [Variety]
  • But do you know who refuses to apologize?
    . [Hollywood Life]
  • This is a story about Ryan Reynolds
    working on his abs for Deadpool 2. Not interesting, but it led
    me to the IG of his personal trainer, which was fun to scroll
    through. The guy’s other clients: the sheriff from Stranger
    and Jim Parsons. [People]
  • Gregg Sulkin. I dunno. [TMZ]
