In his recent tweet, McAfee criticizes a Hollywood A-lister Johnny Depp, saying that ‘Jack Sparrow’ has been having a bad year in his movie career.

To prove his point, McAfee posts headlines of news that say about Depp being replaced in the movie about McAfee’s life, ‘King of the Jungle’, and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, as well as in a few other movies.

John criticizes Johnny

Last year, John McAfee, the crypto baron, as he is often referred to, insisted that the makers of his biopic ‘The King of the Jungle’ replace the Hollywood star Johnny Depp, who was meant to play McAfee.

The role was given to Michael Keaton, though McAfee admits he wanted very much (and still does) to be played by Morgan Freeman.

As for his disdain towards Depp, McAfee admits that the man has consumed a lot more ‘mind altering substances’ than himself.
