Controversial John Waters quotes – Gay marriage, depression and bloggers

John Waters struck again today in an interview with The Sunday Indepedents Niamh Horan. He said “I don’t believe in depression. There’s no such thing. It’s an invention. It’s bullshit, it’s a cop out.”

In what’s become his usual hallmark of insensitivity He describes people as merely being sad not depressed. You can read excerpts from the 2007 article HERE

Below are a selection of quotes from John Waters over the last few years.


People are selectively finding things offensive to suit themselves? If I was a depressed gay blogger I’d be pretty offended.
