“My bad, yo. Damn, this pocket watch makes me look pimp, right? *Publicist tears out hair* Aww, what now?!”

In case you fell off the face of the earth yesterday or just chose to not give a shit about how Johnny Depp has tried to bump his next movie over the $1 Billion box office mark, you missed him comparing photo shoots to rape. Right, well he walked that shit back faster than John Travolta in a backwards footrace through a cornfield. Depp’s statement via Huffington Post:

I am truly sorry for offending anyone in any way. I never meant to. It was a poor choice of words on my part in an effort to explain a feeling,” Depp said in the statement. “I understand there is no comparison and I am very regretful. In an effort to correct my lack of judgment, please accept my heartfelt apology.

He really wasted no time getting this statement out while simultaneously getting even more press for The Rum Diaries. It’s almost like this whole thing was a set-up. You see a handsome Johnny on the page, oh, he says something controversial to pique your interest. All of a sudden you’re swept up, say intoxicated, with the madness of controversy and the curiosity of this dark, edgy gentleman. Then he’s soothing the flames with cool confidence getting you even more drunk on his charm. Next thing you know, you’ve awoken having paid to see his movie and you’re left wondering if you really ever wanted to in the first place. Well played, Depp. Well played.

    He should apologize for dressing like a douche.

    Well I’m not falling for it. That movie is going straight to our NetFlix list and that’s it. I won’t let this faux Frenchie scam my movie dollars yet again.

    • actually i found most his movies entertaining. but i havent seen tourist.

      • Dan

        The Tourist was OK to watch on a Friday with nothing going on with a bottle of vodka to keep you company. Entertaining but not a must see.

    • TomFrank

      Judging from the trailer to The Rum Diary (singular, not plural), I will be happy to pay to see it in a theater. I will be more than happy to see it without paying, too.

    Looks as though there is also a chain holding his penis on.

  4. Mike Walker

    I saw rain forests protesting outside his hotel.

  5. 500 million video gamers apologize for using the term “rape” in a gaming context.

    LOL Faceraped.

    Just once, I want to hear one of these guys go “I don’t give a shit who I offended”.

    I mean shit, even Hank Williams is fucking apologizing.

  7. it had to be said

    I don’t think Depp should apologize. I just think he should be anally raped for a few hours so that he can really consider his choice of words.

    @it had to be said: I agree. My sister was raped at 15. Believe me you dont know until you know. Even your comment wouldnt start to even touch the surface. I do think he should apologize. If everyone who threw the word around so casually or defended those who used it as such were to experience an actual rape they wouldnt be so glib or arrogant. Period.

  9. jew

    he was making a point that it is degrading and LIKE rape. not it IS rape. i don’t see how people are so sensitive. stop ruining everything you annoying dumbfucks.

  10. Johnny Depp Photoshoots Like Rape Apology

    Commented on this photo:

    I will do anything he tells me to.

  11. rough rapes your funny bone

    Who’s complaining about this? Certainty not people who’ve been taped.

  12. Archie

    +1 for jew…what other word captures degradation and objectification better than saying it was like being raped?

    • it had to be said

      Wait. Degradation and objectification were the issue? Oh, because you know, those are words. He could have said them. Interesting.

  13. forrest gump

    what’s the difference between an *SSKISSER & JOHNNY, folks?
    ……………..there simply is NO difference!!

  14. Just once, I’d like to see a celebrity own what they say instead of offering up some half-assed apology. These are people who measure each word they say. It’s their job. He said it, he meant it, case closed. I doubt he meant physically raped anyway. It was an analogy, so rape victims can stop shuddering now and calling for his head. We’re all sorry for your pain and suffering.

    I now have even less respect for him than I did before. Fuck you, Depp

  15. I think the full quote was, “being photographed is like being raped by a queer buck nigger jew who drives a fossil fuel car.”*

    *Note – my sincere apologies to gays, large African-Americans, Jewish persons of either gender, fossil fuel car drivers and people who have been raped.

    Dude, hunter s. Thompson plus Johnny dep. Sells itself.

    Come on! No apologies! Don’t you people realize there are millions of celebrities going through this right now while you sit in the cozy basement of your mom’s house. These poor celebrities have to just take these awful, horrible photoshoots and deal with the hundreds of millions of dollars just waiting for them back at their 20,000sq/ft squalor with nothing but an army of workers waiting on them hand and foot. You all should be ashamed of yourselves to even suggest an apology from these defenseless, poor individuals that sometimes must take photoshoots several times a week.

    political correctness rapes a hole through freedom of speech.

    Yes, johnny depp, well played.. In attempt to put words to his feelings of vulnerablility, he uses the word “rape”. ohh, the intensity of emotions he must have been feeling.. now the outcome: I’ve seen the movie, bought the memorabilia, and banged a guy that looks like johnny depp.. well played indeed johnny

  20. I think it’s a tempest in a teapot. But then I’ve never been raped. Good thing…I probably would have asked for sloppy seconds.

  21. lolz

    I still love you Johnny- still hot after all these years… sigh.

  22. Fart Fartington

    I get that smashing celebrities is the point of this site, and cynicism is part and parcel with that, but taking a moral stand against something like making a rape comparison is just silly.

    Are we supposed to believe that the Superficial Writer has never made the same comparison? No one among the throngs here has compared something intrusive or invasive to rape? Never?

    I call BS. I’m all for lampooning the celebworship culture, but feigning moral outrage at something like this is a bit much.

    Rape has more than one meaning ya know. Granted, when one hears the word “rape” they automatically associate it with the violent, physical act of rape, but still. People and advocate organizations need to stop getting all pissy andnoffended whenever a celebrity speaks. What next? A celebrity says “bless you” on camera when someone sneezes and atheists get all up in arms demanding an apology because they had to hear a word associated with God on TV? I’m sick of this shit.

    Uh, it’s “The Rum Diary” – based on the book of the same name written by Hunter S. Thompson. And Depp is very well-dressed and quite handsome in the photo. I enjoy the writing talents of the author of this blog but am repelled by the nastiness of many of the commenters. You’ll get a lot more mileage with humor than with hate.
