“Can you bring Trump here,” Depp asked the crowd, which instantly booed. “You misunderstand completely. When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? I want to clarify: I’m not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been a while and maybe it’s time.”

Depp, aware his quip could get him in trouble (hello, Kathy Griffin), was quick to point out that he wouldn't actually harm the president.

“By the way, this is going to be in the press and it’ll be horrible. It’s just a question, I’m not insinuating anything,” he said.

Still, as can be imagined, the comment has caused some outrage, with calls to have the Secret Service investigate the actor.
