The famous superstar got 2 million followers within no time after joining the social media, the count of which has now risen to over 3 million. He put up his picture and also a video clip talking about various things.
Depp’s initial article was a photo of himself resting by a candle-lit table with the caption, “Hey there everyone … shooting something for you currently … gim me a min.”
He after that uploaded an eight-minute video clip, thanking his fans for their assistance throughout his lawful battles with ex-wife Brownish-yellow Heard as well as dealing with the brand-new coronavirus.
He said that now is “the time to open up a dialogue,” adding, “as the threat of this invisible enemy has already caused immeasurable tragedies and damage to people’s lives.”
“People are ill and without care, people are getting sick and fighting for breath. People are dying at frighteningly high rates … and I know for the moment it feels like both of our hands are tied behind our backs, and to some degree, they are, but our minds are unbound and our hearts are not chained,” Depp said.
“We need to make the best use of this time by being close to those we love despite our dire circumstances. We cannot and must not succumb to shutting down and giving in to what feels like hellish quarantine monotony. We have to keep ourselves curious as this time in isolation can be used for great learning,” Depp said.
“Create something today that will benefit yourselves and others tomorrow. Do anything you think could be of use to brighten someone’s day. Draw, read, paint, think, learn, make a film on your phone, play an instrument if you play; if you don’t, learn,” the Pirates of the Caribbean actor added.
“Remember today is today and that’s that,” he said. “There are going to be no refunds given tomorrow for having missed today. Today ain’t coming back.”
Towards the end of his video, Depp said that he’s been working on an album with Jeff Beck and they released a cover of John Lennon’s Isolation.
“Jeff Beck and I recorded this song Isolation last year,” the actor said, adding: “Lennon’s prophetic words are pure poetry. … This song about isolation, fear and the existential risks to our world. So we wanted to give the song to you. We truly both hope in our own little way it helps you get through these unusual times we’re experiencing, even if it just helps to pass the time.”
“Before I go, on a more suppose personal note: Thank you all for your kindness, your unwavering support and your strength over these years,” Depp said. “I am touched beyond words.”
