Controversy

Despite the dramatic conclusion of the six-week divorce case in which Johnny Depp (58) accused ex-wife Amber Heard (36) of harassment, the case is far from over in the eyes of the general public. The argument grew when Elaine Beredehoft, Amber Heard’s lawyer, made an interview on CBS Mornings, an American program, shortly after the jury’s decision.

Moreover, both sides’ supporters have continued to place the blame on the other. “These folks were threatening to kill her. They suggested they would microwave her child. According to Bredehoft on CBS Mornings, this is the type of social media she was receiving.

Amber Heard had already been found guilty of defaming Johnny Depp by the jury when she identified herself as a “public figure symbolizing domestic abuse” in an opinion piece.  As a result, the jury decided in Johnny Depp’s favor and gave him a $15 million damage award.

On social media, Johnny’s supporters posted emotional words to the Jack Sparrow actor as Amber’s supporters bowed their heads in disappointment. “He prevailed in the eyes of the public. In a legal proceeding, he succeeded.

He may finally get his name and reputation restored now that justice has been done, a supporter wrote. Another supporter commented, “Johnny Depp’s victory in his defamation case against Amber Heard is a reminder that women CAN be abusers too.

However, a conflict has broken out on social media platforms, and many are debating who won and how. While body language experts continue to analyze gestures and facial expressions to determine whose testimony carries integrity or dishonesty, other YouTubers have undertaken their own investigations and are still trying to figure out who was right and who was wrong.

More about Controversy

One of Amber Heard’s close friends, Eve Barlow, begged her on Twitter to “leave Amber alone,” but the request backfired, and “leave Johnny alone” quickly replaced it as the new trending word.

Throughout her ex-husband Johnny Depp’s multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit, journalist Eve Barlow has used her platform to advocate for the Aquaman star, and she continues to do so.

However, Johnny has successfully won in the Virginia court as well as in the court of public opinion despite Amber’s heartbreaking testimonies and allegedly fake evidence, but Amber can still appeal, according to several reports.

Moreover, American lawyer Lisa Bloom is well-known for representing women who accused Bill O’Reilly of sexual harassment, which led to O’Reilly’s termination from Fox News, and for advising Harvey Weinstein following many sexual assault charges.

She told BBC that appeals are typically where defamation cases are actually resolved. If one is to believe her, our Captain Sparrow and his lovers’ battle is far from done.
