At Glastonbury, Depp asks about assassinating the president

Johnny Depp predicted this story would be written - probably because that's what happens when someone famous talks about assassinating President Trump.

Depp has been working with organisers on the latest addition to Glastonbury's expansive site, which boasts the biggest screen in the United Kingdom and will show films to festivalgoers sitting in remodelled vintage cars. There, he seized the opportunity to make a controversial joke about the president.

Can you bring Donald Trump here? Depp asked. The crowd reacted by jeering and later realized that he was just joking.

"I think he needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark, dark places he could go".

"This is going to be in the press and it'll be frightful but I like that you're all a part of it", Depp continued.

"The Pirates of the Caribbean" star spoke during an appearance at Britain's Glastonbury music festival on Thursday when he pondered how long it had been since an actor had killed a USA president. He shrugged as the partygoers applauded him.

"I want to clarify".

Donald Trump: Mexico Wall May Include Solar Panels
To help cover the Homeland Security Department's estimated cost of $21 billion, photo-voltaic cells could bring the cost down. Among them was one from Gleason Partners in Las Vegas that proposed a wall of steel, cement and solar panels.

Depp has been vocal about his distaste for the president in the past.

The topic of Trump's presidential tenure was first raised by the audience, at which point the event became a politically fueled affair.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" actor also made his own Trump impression in a 2016 "Funny or Die" sketch. Actor Johnny Depp introduces a film at the Glastonbury music festival at Worthy Farm, in Somerset, England, Thursday, June 22, 2017. But I like that you are all part of it.

And earlier this year, rapper Snoop Dogg made a video depicting an assassination of a President Trump clown. "However, it has been a while and maybe it is time".

Other commenters appeared amused by the backlash. "His words added up to exactly that".

"Lol Trump supporters triggered", wrote one user.
