Johnny Depp’s heartfelt post to fans after Amber Heard trial

By Tribute on June 8, 2022 | 14 Comments

Johnny Depp on TikTokJohnny Depp thanked his fans for their support during his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard by joining TikTok and posting his first video.

Depp already has 8.8 million followers on the platform and the number keeps growing by the hour. His first post is a montage of clips from his European tour with Jeff Beck, paired with a poetic message in the caption.

“To all of my most treasured, loyal and unwavering supporters. We’ve been everywhere together, we have seen everything together. We have walked the same road together. We did the right thing together, all because you cared,” he wrote.

He finished the statement, “And now, we will all move forward together. You are, as always, my employers and once again I am whittled down to no way to say thank you, other than just by saying thank you. So, thank you. My love & respect, JD.”

A spokesperson for Amber Heard responded, “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 jury awarded $15 million in damages to Depp, finding that Heard defamed him three times in her 2018 Washington Post article. The jury also awarded Heard $2 million in damages for comments made by Depp’s 2020 lawyer Adam Waldman.

The verdict comes 19 months after he lost his 2020 libel suit against the British tabloid The Sun for headlines calling him a “wife-beater.” A London judge determined that the outlet’s claims were “substantially true.” Depp attempted to overturn the decision in March 2021 but was denied.

Heard plans to appeal the 2022 verdict, meaning this may not be the end of the defamation trial — turned media phenomenon. ~Megan Parsons

    I dont get it that the trial was even allowed to continue in light of the number of false statements made by Ms. Heard. Is the court going to follow through with perjury charges? I do not think this trial makes it more difficult for women to speak up about abuse. Ms. Heard hurt her own case. I think the jury carefully answered the specific questions set before them.

    Congrats Johnny. As a woman – I was offended by the actions of Amber Heard. She has set a very bad example for all women – young and old. She has shamed us with her lies and false claims of abuse. True abuse victims must be outraged by her conduct. Telling lies to deliberately destroy someone is not what God takes lightly. I hope Hollywood finally realizes that not all claims of abuse or harassment are true.

    What woman in her right mind would not seek out medical attention if she thought her privates were cut by a gass bottle? There were too many lies & she obviously lost track of all the one’s she told on the stand. I am glad Johnny has a new lease on life. Real victims of domestic abuse, men or women have nothing to fear if truth is on their side.
    I hope they both get help with any drug/alcohol issues that may still exist or that could lead to their downfall.

    Does anyone else cringe from the hypocrisy embedded in statements issued by Ms. Heard and her representatives? In a time when a greater focus is on the discrimination of underrepresented or minority groups, how can they say “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.” Perpetrators and victims of domestic violence are not gender-specific.

    It’s people like Amber Heard who make REAL victims of abuse/assault afraid to come forward, fearing they won’t be believed. Shame on her. Let’s hope she instills better morals in her child.

    Depp……….hands down…….is a classic woman abuser. He not only LOOKS the part but we all saw the videos of him throwing & slamming things around in their home, very violent actions. As well, there have been many other times he has abused Amber. The courts were only on his side because he has long been a children’s hero with his stupid pirate movies. Just shows that fame presides in all cases, the same reason OJ got away with murder. This one sided attitude in the courts has to STOP.

  8. Dianna • June 9, 2022 @ 3:39 PM

    Now an abuser has a certain look??!! Wow..tell that to the people killed by Ted Bundy. Anyone can be set up by video. He was throwing things around but did it show him throwing her around?! She is a lying manipulator proven in court & she would have no problem pushing his buttons to upset him knowing she would be filming him against him knowing. She in turn admitted to crapping in the bed because she was mad..who in their right mind does that except a baby or toddler??Should we label her mentally ill or spoiled rotten?! She lied like any spiteful & jealous person & got caught. She should apologize to REAL victims of abuse and lay LOW. Talk about narcissism. She proved shes also a terrible actress.Just typical ex behavior mixed with narcissism.She needs to go to counselling
    & tell the truth to change. A pretty face does not make a pretty heart. Both of them could use help for addiction & change and self growth but someone should never ever lie and try to destroy someone cuz it’s over.

    amber is a liar and fraud. she is not happy. and her wages should be garnished to pay johhny . and sell her billion dollar house and make donation that she claimed she made but lied about. her poor little girl. she needs toloose her acting carer for 6 years for setting up all her lies. and step down from being a spokes person. making it worse for men and women that are really being abused. and apolize to johhny d for all the damage she has done to him. now she is putting elon musk in corners the same way so sad. SHE NEEDS BIG TIME HELP

  10. Mike • June 11, 2022 @ 12:19 PM

    I think Amber’s Hollywood career is winding down. I predict that she’ll eventually do porn. And I’ll likely watch.

  11. Laura • June 11, 2022 @ 4:17 PM

    If women think our rights have gone backwards, its only because Amber lied so many times on the stand. Women like that are the reason the court ignore the real abuse on women. If she had been truthful the whole time this case would have just proven women abuse men as well. Amber’s lies have put women backwards.

  12. Lizz • June 11, 2022 @ 4:44 PM

    I do not understand how people /women think that women’s rights are moving backwards because Amber lost in court. Our rights keep move backwards because of stupid crap some women do such as lying about abuse, rape, etc. Our rights are not moving backwards at all. And I for one think Amber should be in jail for committing perjury.

  13. Rusty • June 12, 2022 @ 7:51 AM

    With all the horrors taking place in the world today it’s time to move on and address real abusers in the world, the human rights abusers. Sorry, I have lost patience with Hollywood, sports and political immoral players.

  14. Renee • June 23, 2022 @ 1:39 PM

    Well Carroll I guess you have never lost ur temper or had someone betray you and steal from you and if they did you must have said oh well lookee there oh well let me just be happy.

    Even JESUS got angry! Why?! BC HE WAS HUMAN! Johnny Depp was NOT slamming crap around bc of her but bc he just had someone embezzle and steal millions from him. She just tried to frame him bc she was tryin to do the same in a different way.

    Oh he was so violent. Something tells me you just said that to see what reActions you would get. Wow guess it worked. Idiot me! 🙄
