The way people absolutely ignore that Amber Heard abused Johnny Depp and other people is sickening, I have no words… he almost died two times because of the things she did (that we know of), he has so much evidence, more than 30 witnesses (both to his innocence and her abuse) and she even admitted some of the attacks under oath in 2016 and people still ignore it? call him a liar? ridicule him, mock him, make memes? what the f@ck.
She had no witnesses, photos without metadata of a painted perfectly straight line in a 90° angle which everyone believed was a from a thrown phone without questioning it, the “news” spread like wildfire and he’s been branded a wife beater ever since, hated on, bullied, boycotted, all the while trying to heal from physical and mental abuse.
But his claims, evidence and witnesses keep being ignored and Amber Heard continues to be given a platform and people keep glorify her because you find her pretty? Sick world. Everyone pretends to care about victims and wants to “cancel” abusers but only as long as they’re men, right? Female abusers get a pass? Male victims don’t matter? Where is the outrage? A tiny portion of the internet is talking about it, media are still largely siding with her, repeating her claims and statements and glossing over his.
I honestly don’t understand this. Johnny Depp did nothing to deserve this. And I’m not talking about just the abuse. I mean the way he’s been treated, hated, mocked, ignored. He’s opened up a huge case to prove his innocence and all people have to say is he needs money? Call him a liar despite the fact he’s not painting himself as perfect? He openly admitted to dealing with painkillers addiction in 2014 but he knew he had a problem so he went onto detox and what Heard did? withheld his medicine like a psychopat and caused him to have spasms (he could have died you know). And no one seems to care. She seriously injured his finger and then put out a cigarette to his face. She said he wrote on the wall after this, and he doesn’t deny that. He admitted to doing this because he was in shock HIS FINGER WAS SEVERED. He’s honest about everything. Someone like him, one of the most private actors, would not put such private parts of his life on display in court for the world to see unless he was telling the truth. It’s preposterous to suggest otherwise.
Johnny Depp is not a perfect person. But he’s not an abuser. And you can insult him or mock him for struggling with drug addiction (even though it’s gross) but keep in mind that this is someone who was abused as a kid by his own mother (she was ill, as I understand it) and because of this and mental health he started taking pain killers at the age of 12. He didn’t do drugs for fun. He did it to deal with the pain, to feel better. As a child, and as an adult (presumably because of Heard’s abuse). And he’s always been honest about it. But having these problems does not make him a bad person. And I’m sick of the lack of compassion. He’s just a rich white man to people. Like he has no emotions. Like we all forgot how deeply human he is? Forget his money or gender. He is a human being who deserves love and support after everything he’s dealt with.
but why do I even still bother here or in twitter, people won’t care no matter what.
