In early April, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard embarked on one of the most high-profile trials in Hollywood. The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor accused his ex-wife of defaming him in an opinion piece that he published in ‘The Washington Post’ newspaper in 2018, in which he recounted the domestic violence he experienced in the past.
Although the “Aquaman” actress never referred to the actor by name, he alleged that in two passages of it the references pointed to him as the perpetrator of the abuse.
For the next 6 weeks, the artists gave their versions of what they lived through in their 15-month marriage.
On June 1, the jury ruled in favor of the protagonist of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, so Amber Heard will have to pay 15 million dollars to her ex-partner as compensation for the damage she caused him.
Johnny Depp opened his TikTok account after winning the trial against Amber Heard
The Hollywood star wanted to send a message to those who supported him in the 6 weeks of his media litigation, for which he joined the social network of the moment.
On said platform, he shared a short compilation of clips of fans outside the courthouse as well as of him playing the guitar. Beneath it she wrote:
“We have been everywhere together, we have seen everything together. We have walked the same path together. We did the right thing together, all because you cared. And now, we will all move forward together.”
Similarly, he took the opportunity to thank “my most precious, loyal and unwavering followers.”
To all of my most treasured, loyal and unwavering supporters. We’ve been everywhere together, we have seen everything together. We have walked the same road together. We did the right thing together, all because you cared. And now, we will all move forward together. You are, as always, my employers and once again I am whittled down to no way to say thank you, other than just by saying thank you. So, thank you. My love & respect, J.D.

“While Johnny Depp says we’re moving forward, women’s rights are going backwards.”

“The message that that verdict gave to victims of domestic violence is that they should be afraid to stand up and speak out (against their abuse).”
