Johnny Depp has amassed 7.6 million TikTok supporters under two days subsequent to joining the online entertainment webpage. In his most memorable message to fans, he said they could “all push ahead together” following the decision in his defamation preliminary against ex Amber Heard – who has now answered.
Amber Heard is responding after ex-husband Johnny Depp shared a message to his fans on TikTok about “moving forward” after the verdict in his defamation trial against her.
On Tuesday — simply under seven days since the jury sided generally with Depp and the court granted him $10.35 million in punitive fees and Heard $2 million following a six-week preliminary — Depp, 58, joined TikTok and expressed gratitude toward his “reliable” fans.
In a statement, a spokesperson for Heard, 36, responded to the video by saying: “As Johnny Depp says he’s ‘moving forward,’ women’s rights are moving backward.
“The verdict’s message to victims of domestic violence is… be afraid to stand up and speak out.”
“The disappointment I feel today is beyond words. I’m heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence and sway of my ex-husband.”
“I’m even more disappointed with what this verdict means for other women. It is a setback,” she added. “It sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated. It sets back the idea that violence against women is to be taken seriously.”
