Johnny Depp Adopted By Indian Tribe

Earlier this week a woman named LaDonna Harris, a Comanche Nation tribal member, adopted Johnny Depp as an honorary member of the Comanche tribe.

Why? Because LaDonna thought it would be “fun.”

If you can adopt Johnny Depp as your son, can anyone adopt him as their boyfriend? I’m asking for a friend, or whatever.

Depp plays Native American character Tonto in the new film adaptation of “The Lone Ranger.” Maybe you’ve seen the photos from the film, Depp is seen with a bird on his head posing next to Armie Hammer as the Lone Ranger.

Depp has also publicly stated that he is “part Native American.” But since he’s never been on an episode of “Who Do You Think You Are?” we really can’t be sure, now can we?

CBS News is reporting that the woman who “adopted” Depp said that adopting people as honorary Comanche members is common in their culture. Harris said she knew someone who was working as a cultural adviser on the “Lone Ranger” set and reached out to Depp that way.

The ceremony took place at Harris’s home in Albuquerque, New Mexico on May 16.

This is so random. I guess if you play something in a movie, it happens in real life. In other news, Robert Pattinson is now a vampire and Daniel Radcliffe has been named an honorary member of the wizarding community. I yie yie.
