Johnny Depp Slams Lying Mainstream Media: ‘Fantastically, Horrifically Written Fiction’

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

Mainstream media deals in “fantastically, horrifically written fiction,” according to Johnny Depp who torched the lying mainstream media during an interview at the Cannes Film Festival in France.

Speaking during a press conference for his new movie Jeanne du Barry, in which he plays King Louis XV, Johnny Depp was asked questions on a number of subjects, including his relationship with the mainstream media.

Depp didn’t hold back, accusing the media of dealing in deception and lies. “The majority of what you read is fantastically, horrifically written fiction,” he said. “I mean it’s boring, isn’t it? Aren’t you guys sick of it by now? It’s weird.”

Last year, a jury decided in Johnny Depp’s favor in his libel lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard, vindicating his assertion that Heard lied when she wrote in an op-ed that he abused her both before and during their marriage.

Prior to the verdict, Hollywood and much of the news media had sided against Depp based solely on Heard’s allegations. Depp reportedly lost his role in the Fantastic Beasts movies due to Heard’s claims, though not his $16 million paycheck.

On Wednesday, Depp said he doesn’t think about Hollywood that much anymore.

“I don’t feel boycotted by Hollywood because I don’t think about Hollywood,” he said at Cannes.
