Johnny Depp's controversial Whitey Bulger comments provoke backlash from victims' families

17 September 2015 9:43 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Johnny Depp has provoked a backlash from the families of Whitey Bulger's victims after saying he was "glad that he got away".

The actor stars in new film Black Mass as the infamous Boston gangster, who is currently serving a life sentence for involvement in 11 murders in the '70s and '80s.

Speaking to The AP, Depp previously said: "No matter how good that person is deemed, no matter how bad that person is deemed, by anyone and everyone, my responsibility was to do my best to represent him in a human light.

"No disrespect to any victims or families of victims, but there was some element for me that was kind of glad that he got away," he added.

"For 16 years he was on the lam and he wasn't causing any trouble. He was living his life. Good on him."

The comments have since provoked reaction from victims' families. »
