Johnny Depp allegedly used a ‘derogatory’ term for his legions of fans when under the influence, a former friend of the Pirates of the Caribbean star revealed in court on Monday.
Wright, a friend of Depp’s through his then-partner Amber Heard, revealed in a pre-recorded deposition that while he never witnessed Depp physically assault Heard, he did witness the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s substance abuse issues.
According to Wright, when Depp was sober, he ‘understood’ that he influenced people and was ‘kind and generous’, but when inebriated or drugged, he would turn ‘cruel’.
“He would insult his fans, he called them — I remember, he called them remoras, which is a type of suckerfish that attaches itself to the hull of a ship and puts a hole in it and then sinks it," Wright said.
Depp is currently suing Heard for $50 million for ‘defaming’ him in a 2018 op-ed published in the Washington Post, in which she claimed to be a survivor of domestic abuse.
