(FiveNation.com)- Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp hit out at far-left activists and cancel culture this week, telling Americans to “stand up” to those who wish to destroy the lives of people with their “instant rush to judgement.”
When rapper Nikki Minaj makes more sense on COVID-19 vaccinations than the president does, and celebrities like Johnny Depp are calling out cancel culture, you know there’s a shift in the culture taking place.
Depp made the comments during a discussion at the San Sebastian Film Festival. He said that cancel culture could be seen as an “event in history.”
“It’s so far out of hand now that I can promise you that no one is safe,” he said.
Depp said that as long as someone is willing to target others, all it takes is “one sentence” and the “carpet has been pulled.”
Depp’s decision to stand up to cancel culture fanatics is a sign that all it takes is a few celebrities to stand up to left-wing activists in their own industry to empower average Americans to do the same.
It appeared as though Depp was also making at reporters who wrongly claimed he was a “wife-beater” following a court battle with his ex-wife Amber Heard. During the court case it was revealed that Amber Heard wasn’t the victim she claimed she was, and disturbing recordings of fights between the two Hollywood stars revealed the level of abuse directed at Depp by his former wife.
“When there’s an injustice, whether it’s against you or someone you love, or someone you believe in, stand up, don’t sit down,” Depp said.
Depp’s comments are likely to cause him some trouble in the future, but according to a Morning Consult poll, he might receive more support among younger people than you might think.
The poll showed that 55% of Generation Z, which refers to people born between 1997 and 2008, have a negative opinion of cancel culture. Only 8% have an overwhelmingly positive view of it.
