Johnny Depp has apologized for joking about assassinating President Donald Trump and says he meant no malice.

The actor released a statement to People magazine Friday in which he called his remarks Thursday night at the Glastonbury Festival a bad joke and said it was in poor taste.

Depp's statement said he was trying to be amusing when he asked the crowd when was the last time an actor assassinated a president. He answered that it's "been a while, but maybe it's time."

Depp's statement said he was trying to be amusing.

The Secret Service said Friday it was aware of Depp's remark but declined further comment.

The actor's publicist did not respond to an inquiry from The Associated Press about the report in the magazine.
