Johnny Depp is back in the wrong kind of news again.
Speaking onstage Thursday at Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, England, Depp stepped into controversy again with jokes aimed at President Trump.
“Can we bring Trump here?” Depp asked the crowd at the music festival.
“I think he needs help,” Depp said, according to video posted online. “This is going to be in the press and it’s horrible. But I like that you are all a part of it. But when is the last time an actor assassinated a president?”
As the crowd roared, Depp thoughtfully rubbed his chin. “I want to clarify, I’m not an actor, I lie for a living.”
Depp’s representative did not immediately respond to USA TODAY’s request for comment about Depp’s jokes.
According to Britain’s The Guardian newspaper, Depp received a “rock star welcome” during the Glastonbury event at Cineramageddon – a drive-in cinema.
Depp introduced his 2004 film The Libertine along with director Julian Temple. But first he talked about the President Trump following questions from the 1,500-strong audience.
