Paul McCartney was recently under fire for featuring Johnny Depp clip during  Glastonbury performance.

On Saturday, the Beatles star played a medley of his amazing hits when he performed on Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage.

According to Independent, the singer “became the festival’s oldest ever solo headliner at 80 years old”.

However, at the event, Paul reportedly performed his 2012 track My Valentine, which he dedicated to his wife Nancy, and shared clips from song’s music video. 

The clips featured the Pirates of the Caribbean actor “playing guitar and reciting the song’s lyrics in sign language”.

As soon the clips from the performance were shared online, several fans took to Twitter and expressed their disappointment over Paul using Depp in his music video.

One user wrote, “Deeply disappointed in both Paul McCartney and Glastonbury for the Johnny Depp video. Feel like it goes against everything Glastonbury stands for.”
