Wilder trounces Depp in Willy Wonka debate

- — Martha Ross, Bay Area News Group

Johnny Depp was trending on Twitter Friday morning.

Depp was handily losing an informal Twitter poll over who was the best Willy Wonka: Him or the late, great comic actor Gene Wilder. To many responding to that question, the choice was simple: Wilder, of course.

The debate was launched by a tweet posted by web TV host, “Bad” Brad Berkwitt. The debate also made Wilder, who died in 2016 at age 83, a top trending topic.
