ORne of the most mediatic trials of recent times came to an end a few days ago and the reactions are still happening on the part of the protagonists. Amber Heard Y Johnny Depp, old marriage, they sued for defamation after their divorce and this led them to a legal battle that ended up being won by the protagonist of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’.
After hearing the verdict of the popular jury, made up of two women and five men, which gave the winner of the trial to Johnny Depp, the actor began a new life. The artist even ventured to create an account tik tok where he thanked, in an open letter to his fans, all the support he received from the beginning and was encouraged to “go ahead”.
Secondly, Amber Heard was devastated and still doesn’t believe that “the mountain of evidence” insufficient for the court. Sexual abuse or mistreatment within the relationship was what the actress accused her ex-husband of, but the lawsuit did not come to fruition. The actress wrote an article in Washington Post recounting everything he allegedly suffered, the trigger for the entire legal battle.
Amber Heard: “Women’s rights are in decline”
The actress responded forcefully to the latest statements by Johnny Depp through a spokesperson, but she already related what she felt previously, without being able to “express in words” her feeling and did not give credit to “the manipulation” that she may have had, according to her, the actor.
Amber Heard responded: “Just as Johnny Depp says he’s ‘moving on’, women’s rights are going backwards. The verdict’s message to victims of domestic violence is… Be afraid to stand up and tell what happens to you.”
Amber Heard’s message a few days ago
“The disappointment I feel today cannot be expressed in words. It breaks my heart to see that the mountain of evidence was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence and manipulation of my ex-husband.”
I am even more disappointed by what this verdict means to other women. It’s a throwback. It turns back the clock to a time when, when a woman spoke up and publicly said what was wrong with her, she could be publicly humiliated and blamed. It’s a throwback to the idea that violence against women has to be taken seriously
I think Johnny’s lawyers managed to get the jury to miss the key issue of free speech and ignore the evidence that was so compelling that we won in the UK.
I’m sad that I lost this case, but even sadder that I lost the right to speak freely and openly as an American.”
