Johnny Depp's Post-Trial Concert Appearance Sparks 'Canceled' Debate

Johnny Depp surprised fans at a Jeff Beck concert over the weekend

when he took to the stage in the English city of Sheffield in a move

that has sparked a debate about cancel culture.

As the actor waits for the verdict in the multimillion defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard

he joined the rock guitarist on stage where he performed Marvin Gaye and Jimi Hendrix covers.

The longtime friends performed a cover of the John Lennon song "Isolation," of which they recorded a studio version in 2020.

The surprise performance comes after seven weeks of the trial

that saw allegations of severe abuse made by both parties and created a frantic media storm and social media circus.

The jury will deliberate on a verdict after reconvening on May 31
