Johnny Depp joins Instagram with a video about the hideous coronavirus crisis

The elusive, yet A-list actor joined social media to premiere his and Jeff Beck's musical cover of John Lennon's song, Isolation. An admittedly fitting choice given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which Depp addressed in an IGTV video. Depp remarked while seated, "I don't think, I've really felt any particular reason until now. Now is the time to open up a dialogue, as the threat of this invisible enemy has already caused immeasurable tragedies and damage to people's lives. People are ill and without care. They are dying at frighteningly high rates. Many are unable to provide for their children and their families as a result of this hideous global pandemic." The Oscar nominee urged those watching to stay focused on each other, "I know for the moment it feels like both of our arms are tied behind our backs, and to some degree they are. But our minds are unbound and our hearts are not chained and we can care. Through caring we will help each other. Thank you all for your kindness, your unwavering support and strength over these years. I am touched beyond words." In just few hours, he amassed more than one million Instagram followers.
