Christians slam Depp's Christmas song

A NEW Christmas song featuring a guest appearance by Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp has been slammed as "sickening" by Christians.

The song Jesus Stag Night Club is about a Christ-like character on a bender, visiting strip clubs and getting lap dances.

It features the lyrics: "I can't remember where I was last night, I think I was hanging naked off a church spire ... felt like I was Jesus on fire".

The festive-themed track has been slammed by religious groups, including Focus on Family, news agency Wenn reported.

"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," said a spokesman.

Christian Coalition spokesman Lee Douglas said the Pirates of the Caribbean star would "burn in hell" for recording the song.

"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."

Babybird frontman Stephen Jones called the song a joke, saying: "Some people have no sense of humour."

Depp reportedly wants the song to challenge the No. 1 spot in the UK this Christmas.
