Less than 24 hours since his foreboding question to a Glastonbury crowd, Johnny Depp has issued an apology.

During remarks that proceeded a film screening, Depp suggested Donald Trump should be in attendance before asking “when was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” The uncomfortable joke sparked headlines and controversy, and now the actor is back-pedaling.

I apologize for the bad joke I attempted last night in poor taste about President Trump, Depp said in a statement to People. It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone.

Meanwhile, The White House has also issued a statement about Depp-gate, and brought Democrats into it, of course.

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. Depps colleagues will speak out against this type of rhetoric as strongly as they would if his comments were directed to a Democrat elected official, a statement provided to multiple outlets read.

Still no tweets from Trump, however. You might have gotten off easy this time, Depp.
