Last night at the UK's Glastonbury Festival, Johnny Depp asked this rhetorical question of the crowd:
"When was the last time an actor assassinated a President?"
I believe that the answer is April 14, 1865, when actor John Wilkes Booth murdered Abraham Lincoln.
The White House's response to Depp's comment? "Sad."
According to an official White House statement, "President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and its 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."
Secret Service staff assistant Shawn Holtzclaw told CNN that they are aware of the matter but can't comment further.
UPDATE: Johnny apologized.
