How far is too far when it comes to jest?

Fifty-four-old-actor Johnny Depp is no stranger to controversy, but he found himself in hotter water than usual on Thursday for a remark against US President Donald Trump, The Telegraph reported.

"I think Trump needs help," he said while promoting his film The Libertine at Glastonbury Festival. "There are a lot of dark places he could go."

He continued, "I'm not insinuating anything - by the way, this will be in the press and it will be horrible - but when was the last time an actor assassinated a president?"


In response to cheers, Depp added, "Don't worry, I'm not an actor, I lie for a living."

American actress Kathy Griffin recently lost a contract with CNN due to a failed attempt at comedy in which she was photographed holding a model of Trump's bloody and decapitated head.
