The pressure is on.
Johnny Depp made a grave error in “joking” about assassinating President Donald Trump — he can pretty much kiss his career goodbye.
“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” Depp asked in reference to the death of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865. “I want to clarify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”
On Friday, backlash was widespread for the famous actor, with the hashtag #FireDepp going mega-viral. Disney, who’s stars him as the main protagonist in the Pirates of the Caribbean, has yet to submit a formal response to the actor’s comments.
Even Donald Trump Jr. chimed in, saying that it’d be hard for Disney not to fire him.

Other’s chimed in, with some even posting video of a drunken Depp attacking his former wife, Amber Heard, in a domestic scuffle.
