STFU Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp hearts rapists

Apparently feeling that not enough people hate him and he has too many fans, Johnny Depp came out in support of Roman Polanski in an interview with The Independent last week. “Johnny, shut the fuck up!” — your agent. From the paper:

However, [Depp] wasn’t shy in voicing his dismay about the arrest of film-maker Roman Polanski on a 30-year-old statutory rape charge. In 1999, Polanski directed him in The Ninth Gate.

“Why now?” Depp asked rhetorically. “Obviously, there is something going on somewhere. Somebody has made a deal with someone. Maybe there was a little money involved, but why now?” Polanski, Depp continued, “is not a predator. He’s 75 or 76 years old. He has got two beautiful kids, he has got a wife that he has been with for a long, long time. He is not out on the street.”

In the interview, Depp also voiced his support for 55-year-old Daniel Clive Lyttle of Bradenton, Florida. In 1977, Lyttle was sentenced to life in prison for raping a 15-year-old Manatee High School student as she walked home from a football game. Oh wait a minute, that’s right, Johnny didn’t actually say anything about Daniel. Because he doesn’t direct films.
