The way this has gone viral and been the talk of the online sphere has been wild. The Johnny Depp versus Amber Heard Defamation Trial has been going on for weeks. The tweets, the Facebook posts and the YouTube Videos have deliberately spread the trial for more to see. Not only read the commentaries or the articles on the evidence or such. Therefore, the lies and deception was for everyone to see. Where the mockery and the shocking details was shown for the whole world to see.
This sort of case is showing a toxic relationship for whole world to see. A sort of a relationship that is doing anyone no good. Where one party was trying to diminish and destroy one in the press. That was very clear and the vindictiveness of Heard is very obvious now. As she blames everyone and couldn’t even stand tall on the non-payments to charities even. Therefore, something had to give.
It is good that a man is believed that a woman can assault and attack a man. Not just the other way around. That in the aftermath of that… she did write an article and hurt the career of Depp. This is why the verdict and the victory of Depp is on establishing that it was a fact.
The Collider reported this after the verdict: “Heard was ordered to pay Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages in his defamation suit. Depp had originally asked for $50 million in damages, to which Heard had counterclaimed $100 million. The jury also ordered Depp to pay $2 million in compensatory damages to Heard, but no punitive damages, underlining how the decision favored Depp in the defamation case. The high-profile case took place in Fairfax County, Virginia, and was broadcast worldwide. Heard will be allowed to appeal the verdict if she chooses” (Marco Vito Oddo – ‘Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard Trial Verdict: Heard Guilty of Defamation’ 01.06.2022, Collider.com).
What this states after all this years is that Depp was right all along. Even if the court sided and gave some way to Heard. That is just showing the toxicity, but also how she tried to blind-side the public opinion of Depp until the evidence was brought to the courts. Because, this case has aired out everything. Nothing has been left untouched and even Exe’s of Depp has showed him support during the trial. That’s why you know this has run deep and the private life of him and her has been exposed.
Even if Depp is a victor here and has won punitive damages and compensatory damages of a total of $15 million US Dollars. That will never the patch the hurt of lost roles, the opportunities after such a destructive case and way of maligning each other for everyone to see. Depp has lost franchise-roles and Hollywood studios might more choosy in what to offer him. While Heard possible has drained her career and destroyed all possible revenue-streams for her foreseeable future. As her ways and the way that she carried this was a lesson in self-destruction.
That Depp is vindicated only says that Heard has been exposed. She said he was a wife-beater, but instead he was a victim of her violent ways. That she was projecting things onto him and it making him into a villain. Heard’s plan has backfired… and that shouldn’t shock anyone now. Lies and deception can only take you that far.
Heard tried to malign and make Depp look like the worst. What the trial and the case has proven that she isn’t sincere or honest about anything. While she wanted to bring down her ex-husband. Because, everyone was supposed to believe the weaker gender and any narrative she would tell. However, she didn’t bank on him taking her to the courts and challenge her heads on.
In the public’s eye… Heard has totally lost it. That’s for the role and the manner of how she carried herself. That is a perception she cannot run away from. Depp has gotten more favourable treatment, but don’t expect him to run straight back into Disney movies or franchises at once. He most likely has to be picky with roles too.
Depp has won, but a cost. Heard has lost and has nowhere to go now. Yes, Heard is still favoured by some, but that will not be many. The ones that certainly doesn’t value men or says “all men are trash”. While not believing a man could be a victim of abuse. That’s why a case like this is important.
An it shows that false representation and deliberate story-telling with no basis of truth will in the end hurt the ones telling it. Heard tried to play this one out as the victim. Heard tried to blame the victim and make him evil. While that didn’t pan and the court has now partly cleared name.
The truth of what is to come is hard to foresee. What we do know is that Heard has to cough up this dough and pay Depp the bread. That is inevitable. Justice has been served. The victim has been believed and the abuser has been exposed. This is why Heard will not be treated kindly everywhere. She might struggle to even stay relevant for while now.
People should take a cue from this and remember that anyone can become a victim. Even superstars and popular actors. Depp has been a bankable and a well-reowned actor who could play anything and be marketable everywhere. This case might have destroyed that, but hopefully there will be a renaissance for him in the future. Peace.
