The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star Johnny Depp has spoken in the defense of the Dior's latest 'Sauvage' Campaign. The aforementioned was deemed as offensive to the Native American community and hence, it was decided that Dior won't be going further with it.
The ad features the actor roaming around Southwest Utah, with a native American woman in the background and Sioux warrior chief performing a war dance. The add has ignited outrage on account of being highly racist and giving weight to stereotypical representation of Native Americans. Also, the word 'Sauvage' literally translates to "savage," and has not gone well with those who have been outraged.
Speaking at the Deauville Film Festival, where the star is to receive a career honor and promote the film 'Waiting for the Barbarians', the star claimed that `There was never - and how could there be or how would there be - any dishonorable [intent]. The film was made with a great respect for the indigenous people not just of North America but all over the world. It's a pity that people jumped the gun and made these objections. However, their objections are their objections,` he said, adding that they were currently working along with the offended parties to come to a resolution accepted by all.
