“Old news. Depp retracted it in person (I saw the live interview many years ago) and he apologized, instead of spinelessly having a PR person read a scripted one.”
I threw my TV away during the OJ trail. I have been to a half dozen movies since, but found them mostly painful where they threw in something that attacked Republicans or conservatives or GWB that was gratuitous and out of character. I’m glad Depp has retracted his previous anti-American statements, but I don’t really care. Hollywood has permanently lost me as a customer. I don’t like getting into the story and then get blindsided by some liberal comment. It turns me off of the entire thing. I read only now. And, if the author goes liberal and it’s not in character or germane to the story...toss.
I was at my ex-GF’s place waiting an hour for her to put make-up for our date and out of boredom, turned on the TV and caught Entertainment Tonight which showed his live interview. I have more respect for that instead of having to hire a PR person to send an apology via twitter or facebook but he did it like a man.
