Even before Johnny Depp said it, the actor seemed to know that his comment would ignite controversy.
"This is going to be in the press, and it will be horrible..." he said, speaking to a crowd on Thursday. "When was the last time an actor assassinated a President?"
The actor was at the Glastonbury Festival in the UK when he made his remarks, which were recorded. The Secret Service is aware of the comments Depp made about President Donald Trump, Secret Service staff assistant Shawn Holtzclaw told CNN.
