The picture you can see on the left was taken in Russia last week, where Johnny had been touring with his band Hollywood Vampires before they headed over to Germany, where they’re currently performing. After a Johnny admirer posted this picture with Johnny on her Instagram account, statements such as “he looks ill” or “he looks so pale and skinny” have been making their rounds on several social media platforms. So, among comments from other fans who told them how lucky they were to have met their idol, were concerns over Johnny’s appearance.
Just to give you an example of how people reacted, comments like those were not uncommon:
‘I think that my hero looks ill,’ said one concerned admirer on Facebook.
‘He looks thin,’ said another.
Others did not seem to recognize the Pirates of the Caribbean star at all.
‘F*** me is that Johnny Depp?’ remarked one Twitter user.
Since I do not like spreading rumors, neither about one of his movie/music projects, nor about his personal stuff, I decided to share this nevertheless. I personally do accept his decisions and privacy etc. and I know very well how a certain angle of a photo or the light might make you look different . So, I read a lot of statements from people who have met him throughout the tour, confirming that he was all healthy and happy when meeting them. I’m asking you guys: please do NOT spread any rumors about health issues or whatever when there are none! Yes, it’s up to you to be concerned and worried when seeing someone losing weight or whatever, but Johnny seems to be fine, so please let your concerns stay concerns and not turn into rumors.
