Johnny Depp has won a lawsuit against Amber Heard. Some Hollywood stars took their “likes” off Depp’s Instagram post about it.
Depp is suing Heard for $50 million for allegedly implying he abused her in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed. He claims his allegations impacted his ability to work. She filed a countersuit accusing Depp of orchestrating a “smear campaign” against her. She also said her lawsuit was a continuation of “abuse and harassment.”
In June, the jury shared their verdicts, finding Heard lied about Depp on all three counts.
She was ordered to award him $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. However, Heard achieved a partial victory in his case and was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages, but no punitive damages.
A number of celebrities have commented on Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s court case. Many Hollywood stars have supported Depp via likes on Instagram.
After the couple shared their posts discussing the verdict, a slew of famous people liked Depp’s post. Heard notably received much less support.
However, it is now reported that many of these celebrities hated the post for unknown reasons.
The names were highlighted by the Twitter user @k4mil1awho cross-referenced the post with pre-existing lists compiled by Reddit users at the time.
Celebrities whose names previously appeared below the post but no longer appear include Elle Fanning, Bella Hadid, Orlando Bloom, Robert Downey Jr, Zoey Deutch, Sophie Turner and High-speed train starring Joey King.
The Fender musician has come under fire after sharing a photo of himself with Depp taken in a Newcastle pub. The photo was taken the same day the trial verdict was announced. He then apologized for the “disrespectful” timing of the image, calling Depp a “hero”.
After the unsealing of documents related to the case, new information appeared. This information was not authorized to be sent to the court.
The documents included several potentially damaging anecdotes about Depp that Heard’s team was not authorized to mention. The documents also included other quotes from video testimonials given by famous figures, including Depp’s ex-girlfriend, actress Ellen Barkin.
