The verdict of the Depp-Heard trial divides Hollywood


After coming to light the verdict of one of the most mediatic trials in history, that of Johnny Depp and his ex-wife, Amber Heard, Hollywood is more divided than ever.

The court ruled that both Depp and Heard defamed each other, but the actor was successful in the entire legal battle and his ex-wife must pay him 15 million euros for defamation, while the complaint of abuse has been declared null because it is considered false. And although it is not the 50 million million that he asked for, without a doubt, the 58-year-old interpreter has emerged victorious from the trial that began six weeks ago.

The first to speak out have been the protagonists of this contentious circus. Heard stated as soon as the ruling was known that her “disappointment goes beyond words”, especially for what “this means for other women”. Although she will also receive compensation of two million from her ex, she has been very touched. On the contrary, the protagonist of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ assured that the jury has “returned his life.” “The truth never dies,” he stressed this Wednesday.

“I feel really honored. My decision to pursue this case, knowing full well the height of the legal hurdles I would face and the inevitable world spectacle in my life, was only made after much thought,” Depp’s statement reads. “Telling the truth was something I I owed my children and everyone who has been steadfast in their support of me. I feel at peace knowing that I finally made it. The best is yet to come and a new chapter has finally begun.”

However, the networks have not been slow to manifest themselves and both anonymous users and numerous celebrities have positioned themselves on two sides:

Since the beginning of the litigation, this team has been led by #MenToo, a movement that defends that men are also victims of violence.

Among the avalanche of reactions in favor of the interpreter, those of colleagues who have expressed their satisfaction with the jury’s decision stand out especially.

One of the first to react has been actor Greg Ellis, co-star in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, who brought Commander Groves to life. “Truth has triumphed,” he tweeted, after sharing Depp’s statement and sharing another message: “Plant your flag for Johnny Depp,” he wrote alongside a pirate flag emoji.

The actress Ashley Benson has responded to the verdict with an unequivocal “YESSSSS”, followed by several hearts, and next to a photo of Johnny Depp.

For his part, the singer-songwriter Ryan Adams, investigated in 2019 after being accused of abuse by several women, has been happy and has reacted to Depp’s statement with emojis: a red heart, raised hands and a fire icon .

Laurie Holden, interpreter of ‘Files X’ and ‘The Walkin Dead’, has assured that justice has been done, since the jury’s verdict shows in his opinion that “abuse has no gender and the facts do matter”. While the model Naomi Campbell has marked Depp’s statement with four hearts.

His ex-wife, Vanessa Paradis has always been by his side: “We were partners with Johnny Depp for 14 years and raised two beautiful children together. He is a generous, caring, kind and non-violent man, he has expressed to ‘Page Six’.

Other celebrities who support Depp also include: Gemma Chan (British actress, star of ‘Eternals’); Thomas Lee (son of Pamela Anderson and Tomy Lee); Chase Stokes (actor); Riley Keough (actress, daughter of Lisa Marie Presley); Ricki Lake (actress and TV host); ‘Gossip Girl’ star Eli Brown; Chase Stokes (actor); the star of ‘Teen Mom 2’, Briana De Jesus; and Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman’s children, Connor and Isabella.

At the other extreme, there are those who lament the resolution, such as American comedian and actress Amy Schumer, who has forcefully defended Heard with the quote from feminist journalist and writer Gloria Steinem that she has shared on Instagram: “Any woman who chooses to behave like a complete human being must be warned that the armies of the ‘status quo’ will treat her as some kind of dirty joke… She will need her sisterhood.”

Elon Musk and James Franco, the new owner of Twitter and the famous actor, who were for a time Heard’s partner, have defended their integrity as a wife and as a person.

The British presenter Amanda de Cadenet has also positioned herself in favor of the actress. In fact, this week she days she has dedicated herself to retweeting several posts in which she places ‘Miss Heard’ in the role of victim.

Republicans and conservatives have also weighed in. Meghan McCain, influential columnist and daughter of Senator John McCain, called the ruling the death sentence for the #MeToo movement, which since 2017 has been denouncing sexual abuse and harassment by perpetrators protected by their position of power in various spheres. “#MeToo is dead. Great job @ACLU,” he tweeted, while former National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch added: “Amber Heard just destroyed ‘believe all women.’ Ann Coulter, lawyer and columnist from different conservative outlets, agreed, writing, “And so ends the ‘#MeToo’ movement.”
