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.”
This is not the first time he has spoken about depression though. In 2007, he wrote an article in the Irish Times under the heading “depressing new take on sadness”. 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.
