Actor Johnny Depp won his defamation case against Amber Heard, his ex-wife and former costar. Following a six-week trial, the jury found that Heard had defamed Depp in a 2018 op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post, describing herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.”
The jury also found that Heard had been defamed by one of Depp’s lawyers when he called her abuse allegations a hoax. Depp said he was “humbled” by the decision, which awarded him $15 million in damages. Heard, who was awarded $2 million in damages, has said she was “disappointed with what this verdict means for other women.”
Following the jury’s verdict on the defamation case between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, Depp’s fans are praising his lawyers, especially Camille Vasquez.
Johnny Depp’s monumental win was based on the conclusions of 7 jurors … but BILLIONS of others may have influenced that decision. Amber Heard’s lawyer says the actress was demonized in court by Depp’s team, making it impossible to win the defamation trial.
What people are saying?
Franceenkp: For the past few months, I’ve been seeing Johnny Depp in men’s fragrance ads at major department stores. He has a large contract and that particular brand has him featured in huge displays. So I don’t know if the trial has harmed him long-term.
Serexolik: Yes lets waste more of everyones time its not like theres anything important going on like say a war or gun terrorism so lets just drop everything for self entitled ppl we call actors.
