Johnny Depp’s Christmas song has landed him in a whole heap of trouble with a number of religious groups, it has been reported.
The ‘Rum Diary’ star has teamed up with Babybird to record ‘Jesus Stag Night Club’ – a song about about a drunken, joy-riding Jesus look-alike who gets his kicks at lap-dancing clubs – and had hoped that it could rival The X-Factor for a Christmas number one.
Lee Douglas, spokesman for the religious pressure group The Christian Coalition, told the Daily Star: “I’m sure he thinks he’s being very funny but he’s simply a disgrace.
“One day, Johnny Depp and his cronies will face the judgment of our Lord and they will burn in hell for this filth.”
A spokesman of the Focus on the Family campaign group said the song was “appalling”, adding: “We are sickened by Mr Depp’s behaviour. Why did he need to record this song?
“It is a slap in the face to Christians all over the world.”
Depp is said to be unmoved by the controversy, with Babybird’s Stephen Jones accusing the groups of having “no sense of humour.”
Johnny is said to be the front runner to play Michael Jackson in an upcoming biopic about the King of Pop.
