Some called for a boycott of Depp's movies.
Other conservatives demanded Depp's management company, Creative Arts Agency (CAA), drop him as a client.
Some people noted that Trump invited musician Ted Nugent to the White House, despite Nugent calling on people to "chop the heads off" the Obama administration before the 2012 presidential election.
