Johnny Depp Johnny Depp has come under fire from religious activists for a new Christmas-themed track they've branded "filth."

The Pirates of the Caribbean star teamed up with British rockers Babybird to record "The Jesus Stag Night Club," which tells a story of a boozing Christ-like figure in a strip club.

But the track has caused uproar amongst religious groups including the Focus on Family campaign.

A spokesperson says, "We are sickened by Mr. Depp's behavior. Why did he need to record this song? It is a slap in the face to Christians all over the world."

Lee Douglas of The Christian Coalition adds, "I'm sure he thinks he's being very funny but he's simply a disgrace. One day, Johnny Depp and his cronies will face the judgment of our Lord and they will burn in hell for this filth."

Babybird frontman Stephen Jones has brushed off the controversy, insisting, "Some people have no sense of humor."
