“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. 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.”
“While photos may feel at times intrusive, being photographed in no way compares to rape — a violent crime which affects another American every two minutes. RAINN welcomes the opportunity to speak with Mr. Depp and educate him about the real life experiences faced by survivors every day, and ways that he can work with RAINN to help.”
Do correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think even Kristen Stewart waited for this organization to make a statement before her publicist was wise enough to poke her and say, “Hey, girl, maybe you should rethink what you said.” I’m totally kidding about that last part, anyway, a lot of these morons, collectively, don’t generally take a minute for a second thought after words leave their mouths. Their publicists are paid to speak for them, and screenplay writers and directors are paid to put words in their mouths and make them move. I mean, why should they think for themselves, either?
