Johnny Depp is apologizing for a joke in poor taste that he made at the Glastonbury Festival in England earlier today. He said this morning, UK time, "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?" He went on: "I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”

When the White House caught wind of this, they issued a statement -- because clearly there isn't anything more important going on right now (health care) -- saying, "President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and it’s sad that others like Johnny Depp have not followed his lead,. I hope that some of Mr. Depp’s colleagues will speak out against this type of rhetoric as strongly as they would if his comments were directed to a Democrat elected official."

Depp has now issued an apology to Trump, via People magazine: "It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone."

Apparently what happened with Kathy Griffin didn't teach Depp a lesson!
