Amber Heard's Legal Team Are Trying a New Trick

"No, I wish it screwed finally Amber Heard. Amber has legal team is now claiming that one of the jurors, you heard this story for about two weeks. One of the juries who started the trial was not the actual person who was actually called for jury duty and tricked the court. And now amber's lawyers want the verdict tossed out. So back on June 1st, we all know a jury of 5 men and two women ruled in favor, Johnny, gave him 10 million bucks in compensatory damages, 5 million in punitive damages, and the state caps punitive damages at 350 K blah blah blah. So amber didn't look totally loose, but the jury later declared that Johnny's former lawyer remained the same Paralympic interview with the daily mail. Blah blah blah, she gets 2 million. No one cares. We all knew Johnny won unanimously. Now they believe and what gets me is she just wanted to move on from this. That's all she said, a lot of the crime, the tears, they believe that one of the jurors, tournament 15, never received the summons. At the time, amber's lawyers didn't know how someone who was not summoned for jury duty got into the jury pool, but now they think they know. There was a new documents filed the other day in Virginia again. And amber's lawyers claim that a jury summons went to this person's house with two people at the same name live. One of them is 77. One is 52, okay? The 77 year old was the one who was summoned, but the 52 year old showed up and eventually became druid on the 15th. Now, some people think that the 77 year old and the 52 year old also share the first name about amber's doctor don't mention that. So that's a problem for her lawyers to deal with. But it may be a case of like, you know, maybe the sun thinking as far as jury, some of those for him, but amber's finally says that the 52 year old knew damn right that he would trip in

And not think that it is Hollywood brat at their worst. But what people don't understand is it's actually so much bigger than that. This is this is not only about our First Amendment rights to speak. But here's the thing about the First Amendment. The First Amendment protects free speech. It doesn't protect lies that amount to defamation, and that was the issue in the case. Yes, exactly. You can't go into the free speech that's not protect you if you go into a crowded theater and you scream fire. We get the concept of free speech from the Greeks. My understanding of what that means is not just the freedom to speak. It's a freedom to speak truth to power. But truth is the word. Yes. And that was the issue. And that's all I spoke. And I spoke it to power and I paid the price. So you just tried to mansplain law. To a lawyer. And Savannah said what most black women say..

The Ingenious Proposal by Revolver News to Flip the Script on the Left

"There's a fascinating article in revolver news. Revolver is just simply one of the most original investigative websites in the country. It's edited by Darren Beatty, who's been on the podcast a couple of times. In fact, Darren has sent me a bunch of questions to answer to do a kind of a Q&A on 2000 mules and I need to get to do that. I told Darren. I've been under the weather, but I will oblige. I'm also on book deadline, by the way, I'm finishing finishing my book for regnery, which comes out of the end of August. Now, in revolver news, fascinating article about a new idea for the GOP. And the idea is how do you strike back at the kind of defamation that is routinely done by the left of conservatives. And revolver basically says, look, we can get to take a little page out of the Johnny Depp Amber Heard trial. Why? Because there was systematic vilification, really for years of Johnny Depp. He was the bad guy. And what did he do in the trial? He kind of turned it around. And he turned it around by really showing that she was the abuser that she was the one defaming him and that the aggression was coming, at least in many cases, from her aside. And death had to do this in court and essentially overcome a slanderous and malicious and sinister media that had been cultivating this image of depth. So depth success in doing that gives revolver a kind of an ingenious idea. And that is, how can we use defamation law to go after the left? Well, what is the most incendiary accusation that is made by the left? Of conservatives, almost always falls. And therefore, something that we can use to go after them on. And the answer is, it's the charge of being a racist, a white nationalist, a white supremacist now, says revolver. Yes, you can file a defamation case now. But a lot of times courts don't take it seriously because they go, well, you know, they just calling you a name. But revolver says, no, wait a minute. This accusation of being a racist of being a white supremacist or white nationalist can destroy your entire life.

President Trump = Johnny Depp

"I'm back with attorney Joseph McBride, founder of the McBride law firm in New York City, Joe represents some of the January 6th defendants. Joe, in some ways, we were, as you were talking, I was thinking about, you know, the Amber Heard Johnny Depp trial because when you mentioned an abusive situation, here was a trial set up with the idea, a lot of media vilification, death is the bad guy. This had been going on for many months to some degree, maybe a fear that the jury pool had been poisoned. And yet as the trial went on, it became really clear that first of all, admittedly, this was a very dysfunctional relationship, but the idea that Amber Heard was this innocent party on the receiving end, began to be contradicted by fact after fact after fact, and pretty soon a lot of people absorbing and began to conclude wait a minute. This woman might be the real abuse or in this relationship. And are you saying that something similar might emerge as a consequence of these public hearings and maybe even some of the trials in which as people take a closer look, they begin to realize that they are, they are being sold a narrative that doesn't really match reality. The national ought to say that's a fantastic analogy and this set of circumstances president Trump is Johnny Depp. And Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden are Amber Heard. There is no question about it. There have been years of defamatory and slanderous statements, impeachment trials. They have done everything they can do to dirty up, slander and defame president Trump's name. But every time you dig into these situations, every time there's a trial, anytime there's an actual investigation, what do we find? President Trump has clean hands and the actual wrongdoing was through by some member of the government.

"What we need to empower parents again. And when I say in power parents, I'm speaking on an individual household basis, right? I don't care what the PTO moms think. I really don't. I just do not give a damn. So your kid, if your kid has ever not able to go to a camp or whatever because he's not vaccinated, just doesn't matter, right? Yeah, not for me. I'll find the ones that he's allowed to go to, right? And too bad on them. He's healthy. It's so bizarre to me. You're treating a healthy person like they're sick and fortunately because of COVID, parents are awakened to how bizarre it is, right? You're saying that there's nothing wrong with my kid. Mikey doesn't have COVID. Even if my kid did have COVID, he's a child, so he has an effective 0% rate of becoming ill from this, right? And yet you're saying to me, my child can't do activities unless they roll up their sleeve and risk getting myocarditis. That's insane. That's not worth the trade off for me. Let me just say this to parents are listening to this. You only get when it comes to your health. It's just one time, you're born with it, you get your health, right? If your child gets myocarditis, there's no cure or fix for that. You've ruined the rest of his life. Potentially for a Facebook post to say, my child graduated. I got so many emails from moms and dads. He's only got one semester left to go, right? Horrible circumstance to be in, by the way. I am completely sympathetic to that. Imagine COVID hits, you have one semester left to go. And they say, well, he's got a rope receiving at the vaccine. And parents are going, I paid all this money, man. I just want him to get the freaking certificate. Wrong decision man, right? You're playing with his health. Now, imagine if you're that parent that did that in your child, suffered from a heart attack, had mild has myocarditis. We have listeners where that's happened. Right, right paralyzed. Paralyzed.

And turning point, USA's organization, almost burned to the ground, so I'm going to give a lot of credit to you right now, Charlie. So basically, me too started trending, like the online Twitter movement, started trending, because that's all it was really, was a Twitter movement. And it just lacked substance. It was so obvious to me what all the holes were going to be in this. And I basically tweeted that I would not support the me too movement. And that it weakened women. And obviously, it's bad for men. And oh my gosh, the floodgates. First, foremost, like turning point, USA, obviously. Has a lot of young girls that work here, which is amazing, and it's great in college, you know, a lot of young college women, and they took that as Candice Owens doesn't support rape victims, which is what the intention of the movement was, right?

The Explosive Collapse of #MeToo Just HEARD Around the World

"So this person Amber Heard, again, I know very little about her except the fact that anyone who had tried to destroy somebody's life based on fake accusation that are so patently fake and false really deserves to be called out for this. And so Amber Heard was found liable for defaming Johnny Depp. And she pushed back against all these accusations in the last couple of days. And so this is really kind of the last gasp of the me too movement. The me too movement came out of the scene four or 5 years ago, which was basically trying to restructure societal norms and to try to destroy the patriarchy, kind of the alleged complaint that somehow women are being so incredibly oppressed by their male bosses and men are nothing but savage animals and believe all women regardless of the circumstances. Now, of course, the belief all women think didn't apply to Joe Biden and all of his accusations against him didn't apply to prominent Democrats, but it did take out a couple Al Franken and many others. They tried this with Brett Kavanaugh Brett Kavanaugh fought back and Brett Kavanaugh won. So Johnny Depp decided to sue Amber Heard and Amber Heard fought back in this trial of which I wasn't really following the details, but the long and short of it is this is that not only did Johnny Depp fight back against the accusations he fought back against all these corporations that were so quick to go take the psycho woman's side without ever actually finding whether or not finding out she was telling the truth. Like was she actually telling the truth and in fact, not only was she not telling the truth, she was complete and total fabricating the entire situation. So me too started with some legitimate complaints, Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein, and it transitioned into the demands of the hordes of social justice warrior angry women that believed they could destroy the lives of men, and they do not care about the repercussions and they do not care about the consequences. Now, just understand the standard to be able to prove defamation in an American court is an unbelievably high standard. In order to prove defamation, you have to be able to prove intent not the result in an American court, so to be able to convince a jury that you are defamed against and that someone intentionally had the intent to make things up against you is a very, very high standard. And Johnny Depp came with all the receipts and all the evidence from voice memo recordings to text messages to third party witnesses and now just some interesting backstory Amber Heard was also dating Elon Musk for quite some time. I'm just curious to see who is going to date Amber Heard next.

"They were calling each other ugly names. And she's always been very open about the fact that she did not behave great in this relationship. She didn't ask for this, right? He is suing her and she was not someone who wanted to bring this out into the public eye, and she's always been really transparent about the fact that her actions weren't always great. People don't react to abuse in pro social ways. This is also something that is very familiar from abuse cases. And so most of his accusations against her. And if you listen to his account of events, it's like, okay, she was annoying. She could nag you. She was condescending about your drug use. She would kind of roll her eyes if you're like, oh, I'm getting it sober this time. Okay, I don't know, that's not great behavior. But she has ten documented incidents of you beating her up. And giving her black eyes and slamming her to walls and tearing out chunks of her hair, and at least two sexual assaults. So it's like, I don't know why we're talking about this. Like, I don't know why we're talking about like, well, maybe she hit him once and she's on tape saying maybe she hit him. Okay, I don't know. In a vacuum, that's not great behavior, but also if you look at this relationship as a whole and what the evidence indicates, she has a very strong case for believing her and even the fact that he is doing this is in some way evidence of her account. Part of her account is that he had these paranoid conspiracy theories that he was accusing her of all the time, and now he's suing her for destroying his career, right? She wrote half a sentence about him in The Washington Post in 2018. He's kind of ignoring the libel suit that he lost in England. You know, prior to that. And there's been numerous magazine articles before this about Johnny Depp's fading star. He had, I think it was like 6 bombs in a row. He was in this Alice in Wonderland sequel that nobody's ever heard of. He was in the lone ranger, which was like such a flop that it's kind of a legend at this point. He's also just getting older and Hollywood thrives on youth. I mean, there's a million reasons. Why his star was dimming in Hollywood, and also they had a Disney executive testify at the trial who was talking about why they removed him from the Pirates of the Caribbean films, and she was like, no one even saw the op-ed. We didn't even know that was happening, and there's some evidence that they actually made the decision before it came out. This is all about the op-ed? Yeah, this whole, this whole trial. He is suing her for defamation for an op-ed in which she only referred to him in a half a sentence. And she didn't say anything that wasn't factually true. Her sentence was, I became a public figure representing the issue of domestic abuse. Which is factually true, she did become a figure representing that. She didn't say anything about him. Obviously, the assumption is very clearly there that it's about him. But when he was suing her in London, that was about a prior defamatory statement in his view. Yes, he was suing the newspaper the son for printing an article that called him a wife beater. And then by calling Amber Heard to testify and present all this evidence, they were able to prove under the statutory rules in the UK that he was, in fact, a wife beater, the claim was substantially true, therefore it's okay to print it..

"As part of the divorce settlement, signed an NDA and withdrew the abuse allegations that she had made when she filed a restraining order. And then she didn't speak about it. So she's fabricated all of this abuse. She makes the abuse claims, she then agrees with him to withdraw the abuse claims when they settle the divorce, and then she doesn't say anything for a year and a half. Again, strange behavior for a criminal mastermind who wants to use this to get ahead in Hollywood. To depth defense, you've made this observation yourself. He might sincerely believe given that he is prone to blackouts, he made sincerely believe in what he's alleging. It feels like every time we have one of these, everyone forgets everything we've learned before about abuse dynamics. And I think it's really important to actually hear the narrative that Amber Heard is telling because it's an extremely familiar story of abuse dynamics. So when she first met Johnny Depp, he was sober, early in their relationship or on March of 2013, he fell off the wagon. And once he started drinking again, he would disappear for days. He would return as kind of a different person. He would accuse her of whoring herself out in Hollywood. He would speak really negatively about other actresses. He criticized her for wearing a low cut dress. She says she stopped telling him about auditions because he would start grilling her about whether or not there were love scenes with male actors. And what they really fell into was this cycle where he would get drunk or use drugs to the point of blacking out and then he would hit her and then the next day he would deny it. He would deny that he had a drug problem and he would deny that he ever hit her. And he would deny that he was ever abusive. There's this deep denial and I think shame associated with being the kind of addict who hits a woman, like this is a very stigmatized, I think rightly category in society. And I don't say this to defend the behavior at all, but this is a very familiar abuse pattern, especially when drugs and alcohol are involved. And what she describes is by late in the relationship, she's essentially the only person who is treating his drug use and his violent outbursts as a problem because of course we have to reckon with the fact that this guy is a movie star. He's extremely wealthy. He has people handlers around him. He has full-time doctors. He has lawyers, and her talks about people prescribing him things to get him through shoots, because the studios need him to finish the shoot, and then he'll get into detox after the shoot is done, right? There's this whole kind of machine around him to make sure that he never has to reckon with what he did last night. Nobody ever reminds him, oh, you trashed that hotel room. He just has this bottomless checkbook and these people that we're going to make these problems go away. And so when you listen to his testimony, he in contrast to hers, he doesn't really list very many incidents of abuse. He says that she was irritating. He says that she was abusive, but he doesn't say, okay, on this date, these text messages indicate that there's nothing specific in his account, but he does describe her as sort of nagging him. Oftentimes, abusers, especially people who are in denial about the fact that they are abusive, will remember when their victim hits them. They'll remember when their victim was nagging at them, right?.

"This is a meta myth that we've gotten a million times. It's something that appears in a lot of stories that have caught on. It's something that I think a lot of people believe somewhere in their brain and they turn off their critical faculties when a story meets these criteria. What we've had is this phenomenon that people have been colloquially calling true crime brain, where there's a lot of these small discrepancies in Amber Heard's account. So the biggest one is she says that she donated her divorce settlement to charity, half to the ACLU and have to, what was the other half? Children's hospital of LA. Right. And so this seems like her main claim that she's not a gold digger, right? I gave away all the money. And she said, under oath that she donated all this money, right? And then in the course of this trial, it comes out that the ACLU, which should have received $3.5 million, has only received about $1.7 million, and some of it was like in Johnny Depp's name and some of it was like an Elon Musk's name and it's all the whole thing just starts to seem like she's been running this scam for the entire time, right? And so this goes around and this is oftentimes cast as one of her proven lies on the stand. She said that she donated the money under oath, and now it comes out she hasn't donated the money. Looks bad. But of course, once you show any natural human interest in what actually happened, the ACLU has testified in this case that they had always planned with Amber Heard for her to give it away over ten years. This is fairly normal for these large scale donations. She paid the first year and during the second year, she started getting sued by Johnny dep and she now says she spent $6 million defending herself from these lawsuits. And so according to the ACLU, she has been completely transparent with them. And she said, hey, all my money's tied up in this lawsuit right now. I can't pay the second year. I still intend to pay the rest. Can we put it on hold for a year? And the ACLU said, sure, that's fine. These things happen..

"To make it seem like she was being deceitful and sort of when did this happen? When in the day did this happen and first she said this and then she said that it's quite easy to do this and make somebody look like a liar on the stand and it's also it allowed bad faith actors to plant a lot of seeds that then you have to go and sort of pull up like weeds. It's much harder to deal with this stuff once it's been entrenched, then it is that there's two narratives going on at the same time. So for weeks, the only narrative was Amber Heard is a manipulative psychopath and Johnny Depp is the victim of abuse. Like that was the only thing that most Americans were hearing. Well, you mentioned TikTok, a lot of this, as many of these kinds of narratives do, started on a whole range of social media, a popular podcast where the hosts were congratulating themselves on not weighing in and maybe that's the least of it. What were some of the complete misinformation? I mean, the things that were absurd. One of the, one of the early ones was that in Amber Heard's opening statement, she said that dating Johnny Depp was like the warm sun shines upon you and then the sun burns out and then it's very cold or something along those lines, which it turns out is a line from the talented mister Ripley and the idea was that she had plagiarized this line from the talented mister Ripley, which, first of all, people do that with movies all the time. It's fairly normal to sort of quote movie lines when you're talking about your relationship. Second of all, Amber Heard didn't give an opening statement. There's no such thing as an opening statement where Amber Heard said this quote, like the entire premise of this plagiarism is just completely made up. There's no evidence that she ever said this. But this kind of nothing burger of an accusation bounced around. There, did you hear the one about the makeup palette? No. So one of the arguments against Amber Heard is that if Johnny Depp was so violent, why do so many people report seeing her without bruises? This is what I consider to be a very bad faith accusation because bruises are fairly easy to cover up with makeup, especially if they're relatively minor bruises, and that's what she says they are. So in opening arguments, her lawyer held up a makeup palette as a kind of example, like a visual aid to say, the reason why people didn't see her with bruises is this. It's a makeup palette. You can use concealer, and you can cover up your bruises, right? So then the flying Internet monkeys that have been swarming around this case for weeks now, they zoomed in on the image, they found the brand that Amber Heard's lawyer was holding up and they started tagging this makeup brand and saying, her lawyer says she used your product to cover up her bruises. And then this is really ugly. The actual makeup brand, then put out a debunking tweet saying we only started making this makeup palette in 2017. So Amber Heard is lying. There's no way Amber Heard could have used it in her relationship to Johnny Depp between 2012 and 2016. So, of course, that leaves out the fact that in the opening arguments, they didn't say that she was using this specific brand..

"Different standard. Yes, I mean, it should have been very easy for Johnny Depp to win that case, and he didn't win. So that decision is available online. And it's a 126 pages long. It's actually very clearly written. It's very cogent. It basically goes through 14 incidents of violence that Amber Heard alleges happen in the relationship. And it very clearly lays out, okay, here's the evidence for Johnny Depp's account, and here's the evidence for amber herd's account, and it says of those. One is thrown out on a technicality. Another one the judge isn't convinced, but on 12 of those incidents, the evidence indicates that Johnny Depp was violent toward Amber Heard. Based on what? Based on, I mean, it's actually quite remarkable once you get into it, and this is really what radicalized me is that very few domestic abuse victims have as much evidence as Amber Heard. So she has contemporaneous texts from very early in their relationship two years before they even got married. She was texting her mom and saying, I think I'm in love with someone who's abusive. She was telling her friends, I'm afraid of this guy getting violent with me, her acting coach says sessions are supposed to be an hour long, but we had to schedule them for two or three hours because she was so distraught from what Johnny Depp was doing to her. We have witnesses who say they covered up her bruises with makeup. We have photos. We have texts from Johnny Depp himself kinda sorta, not admitting to the abuse, but admitting to drinking to the point of blackout, which is the heart of her accusation of abuse that most of the incidents of violence took place when he was drinking so bad that he couldn't remember what happened the next day. We have his staff texting her the next day and saying, when I told him he hit you, he cried. And so you look at all the evidence and I don't know of other public domestic abuse cases where there's been this much evidence. I was comfortable believing Christine blasey Ford. I was comfortable believing the accusers of Weinstein and Cosby, and they had much less evidence than this. If the mainstream media had wanted to engage, they could have this information was available and collated for their convenience if they were willing to read through more than a hundred pages. That said, what is the consequence of the progressive media, even the mainstream media's reluctance to engage with that evidence? Well, I mean, I want to offer some Amnesty on this because I think a lot of people did this out of a place of generosity thinking that, hey, this is ugly in there. I don't really want to engage. I might be re traumatizing this person by adding more attention to it. But the effect of that ultimately was that we had three or four weeks when almost nobody on the liberal media side was covering this case and the right wing media was having an absolute field day with this. And so we had rumors, I mean, just straightforward misinformation from the opening arguments we were getting misinformation about Amber Heard's case. And we were getting all of this, especially on TikTok, these video clips where people would take Amber Heard's testimony out of context, and they would make it seem like she was lying..

"And thus ends the me too movement tweeted conservative mischief maker Ann coulter. This Wednesday afternoon and fairfax county circuit court in Virginia, a jury awarded Johnny Depp, $15 million in damages in his libel suit against his ex-wife Amber Heard, and gave her 2 million in her countersuit against him. All this, over a December 2018 op-ed, she wrote in The Washington Post, describing herself as quote a public figure representing domestic abuse. Depp's lawyers said that he was defamed by the article even though it never mentioned his name. This case argued over 6 weeks before a 7 person jury and judge and a noisily expanding online audience drove much of the Internet crazy with guilty pleasure, except in precincts where the idea that women were regularly abused and had the right to say so was beyond the pale. And those places the pleasure was guiltless, enhanced by the collective hurling of feces at Amber Heard, who did not deserve it, based on the evidence gathered meticulously in a British libel case,.

I used to be respected people took me at my word, then I became a lawyer representing amber. Caitlin Tiffany, staff writer at the Atlantic, you mentioned earlier that when we first started seeing Amber Heard Johnny Depp's stuff on TikTok, SnapChat, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram everywhere. The initial feeling a lot of people had was something like this must be bots, this must be fake. Someone is paying for this. But eventually we realized that it was indeed real. Yeah, there were quite a few firms who analyzed bought activity that looked into it and they found a couple hundred bots or something, which I think is pretty typical around any major news event. There are people who will create bots to participate in it for various reasons probably have to do with click farming. But yeah, I mean, in general, this is real. It's been pushed out on TikTok and Instagram and Twitter. And I think part of the reason that it's everywhere is that it's being pushed around by these groups that are already really tightly networked and are already really good at amplification and that would especially be fans and fandom. So are these Johnny Depp fans? Yes, some of them are definitely Johnny Depp fans. Who knew his fans were this passionate until now? I know. I think that's a part of why people were surprised because everyone knows who Johnny Depp is, I think he had a little bit of a resurgence when he got involved in the Harry Potter movies. Magic. Only in rare, so. So some of it's definitely Johnny Depp fandom. A lot of it is also this kind of separate phenomenon called anti fandom. Anti fandom. Yeah, anti fandom. Like you're a fan of not being a fan? Right, yeah, in a lot of fandoms, they're called anti people who just viscerally hate a celebrity or if you're talking about fictional character or fictional character. And that is what determines their fan practice. And I think in this case, there's definitely a huge faction that doesn't care so much about Johnny Depp at all. I've actually gotten a lot of emails from people that start, I'm not a Johnny Depp fan, but people are going online to hate amber herds specifically. It smells anti feminism. I'm very full feminism. It's anti Amber Heard. There's a difference. And some of those people are Johnny Depp fans who think that she's manipulating him and controlling him and ruining his life and others just see her as this sort of dangerous figure who's making women look bad or disgusting to them in some other way. But that is as highly personal and engaging and fixation and do thing as regular fandom. It sounds like anti fandom didn't come to be in light of this trial. What's like the history of anti fandom? What else have people been anti fans of? The example that I have touched on the most in my own work is in the one direction fandom, one of the members Louis Tomlinson. He had sort of a surprise pregnancy situation with a woman that he had been dating casually. Louis is expecting a baby with Los Angeles based stylist, Briana jungwirth. Also, 23. This was a very big deal within the fandom because a lot of people believed that he was secretly gay and closeted and in love with Harry Styles. As soon as this pregnancy became news, it was like narratively undesirable, impossible. There had to be a different story to explain why he would be on Good Morning America saying, obviously, it's a very exciting time. So I wasn't. Thank you. Pretty much immediately like an anti fandom sprung up around the woman that he impregnated. Brianna Jung worth, who was not a person who was in the public eye, really, until this incident, and this really aggressive anti fandom sprung up around her. They were analyzing everyone of her outfits every one of her tweets, every one of her Instagram posts, but they were doing it because they hated her. And so they variously portray her as this mastermind who's manipulating Louis Tomlinson and ruining his life, and then they also, you know, discuss her as stupid and grow and often accusing her of being a bad or delinquent mother. All of these things that seem on their face to be so obviously misogynistic, but what was interesting to me about them and about all of the anti fandom examples that I would kind of bring up in relationship to Amber Heard was that they claim to actually be feminists and said, I'm not misogynistic. If I don't criticize this woman because she's a woman, that's misogynistic and actually she's the one making women look bad. And it's my responsibility almost as a woman to call her out because men can't see what she's doing. That became like a huge part of the Amber Heard anti fandom, which was why I felt like, okay, this is part of a continuum or a pattern in fandom, we hate these women, but we are no longer comfortable saying I hate women, they're gross. So instead, you have these contorted explanations of like, well, I hate this woman because, you know, she's evil, or I hate this woman because she's actually undermining me too, or she's actually an abuser. She's actually doing all of these things that go against my progressive politics and my interest in social justice. Do we have any idea if these anti fandoms are more often directed at women? Yeah, it's definitely more often women than men. You know, people hate all manner of celebrities for all different reasons, but I think the anti fandoms that pick up a lot of momentum are the ones that are focused on women. Another example I've reported on is Benedict Cumberbatch's wife, Sophie hunter. His fans claim that she is just part of an international drug and human trafficking ring. What? Yeah, it's why you'll. Benedict Cumberbatch, his wife, what did she do to anybody? I guess it's just that people were really surprised by how quickly they got married. They don't believe that their children are real. They think she faked all of her pregnancies. Fake pregnancy is like or like lies about paternity is really common in all of these conspiracy theories. Jeez, get a life Internet. I mean, just to be clear, there's no evidence at all that Sophie hunter is like an international crimes indicate mafia boss. Thank you for that. I mean, thinking about Benedict Cumberbatch's wife and this guy from one direction's ex-girlfriend baby mama, whatever. Amber Heard has more reason to actually have fans than any of those people she was in an Aquaman movie or two, I can't tell. But is anyone coming to her defense? There's definitely like little groups on Twitter and tumblr that are supporting Amber Heard. I spoke to a woman who had made a new Twitter account specifically for that purpose to debunk claims about Amber Heard's testimony that lay ridiculous. Or to point out the way that making fun of her claims of being abused, whether or not you ultimately think she's telling the truth about every single one of those claims, it's still really messed up to just make jokes about domestic violence on the Internet. All day long? Yeah. It just feels like we're supposed to be a little bit more mature at this point after me too. After Black Lives Matter, after just having some sense online that there is reason to be a little more sensitive to people, it's sort of shocking to see how brutal people are willing to be to this individual who is on the stand, whether you believe her or not, like pouring her heart out and crying and talking about just awful things that may or may not have happened in her life. I mean, we don't know, but it just feels wise to keep a distance and maybe respect it, but that is not the way this is gone. I mean, if you're the type of person who makes any kind of content for the Internet, there's certainly an incentive to start making content making fun November heard or at least following the trial from an anti Amber Heard perspective. And there's been some good reporting about YouTubers totally pivoting to that kind of coverage because it gets tons of views or I was following this Instagram user who used to do totally generic lifestyle, you know, here's my beautiful house in California type of stuff. Like her account has gone through several phases of gaining hundreds of thousands of followers and it's always because she starts covering something like free Britney or Gabby petito and most recently, Johnny Depp, she just goes all day long, posting clips from the trial. And emoting about, oh, I can't believe Amber Heard used to make fun of Johnny Depp's wynonna forever tattoo. We love wynonna. I think she specifically said that was evidence of Amber Heard's psychopathic deranged because she would make fun of that tattoo. Her audience is clearly eating it up. There's definitely like motivation to make this kind of stuff..

Are these bots are these people? This can't possibly be such a widespread topic of debate. Hundreds of miles away from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, this high profile case will be right here in fairfax county. And in the rare move cameras will be allowed inside the courtroom. Like what seems immediately attractive about this story. I think is that it's the kind of thing that involves a lot of salacious details and a lot of different celebrity players, including Elon Musk very tangentially. Attorneys may want to hear from the world's wealthiest man because he dated Amber Heard. So it really appeals to this culture that's super concentrated on the Internet right now of investigation and amateur sleuthing, all right you guys, let's get into it more lies amber told on stand part I can't keep up.

Remember source X they said amber definitely went through hard times because of his addiction, but he was not abusive. I think it's just like a really rich, well of content to mine, I guess, more so even than just the normal speculating about a celebrity where you have paparazzi photos to go through. I'm the host lying again after they played a recording of her hitting Johnny Depp. On that recording, right? That's correct. And mister Depp was hiding from you in the bathroom. Isn't that right, miss heard? I think a lot of people got into this during the pandemic with the Gabby petito case or QAnon. I don't think this is directly related to QAnon, but I think it's the same kind of urge to put these puzzle pieces together and pull from this really big sprawl of documents.

"How celebrity cases like the Johnny Depp Amber Heard trial have shaped the national conversation about abuse. By Olivia B waxman. As a defamation trial between actor Johnny Depp and his ex-wife, actor Amber Heard, continues in fairfax, Virginia. The headline making case is raising awareness of domestic violence, as the two accuse one another of abuse. It's too soon to tell where the trial will fit in the history of the subject, but experts who study domestic violence say the lawsuit has the potential to help shape the national and global conversation about abuse just as a number of high profile incidents have done before. The modern history of that evolution begins with O. J. Simpson, though he was acquitted in the 1994 murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Simpson, Simpson's trial during which details about the violence she suffered were presented by prosecutors is seen as a watershed moment for the understanding of domestic violence, says Danielle's slay cough and assistant Professor of criminal justice at Sacramento state university, who studies media portrayals of criminal justice. Domestic violence had long been seen as a private matter about which both abusers and sufferers kept largely quiet. The nationally televised trial exploded that wall of silence, asking viewers to consider the consequences of violent behavior within a relationship. There was such a lack of understanding about domestic violence before the case, and now it is much more common that people understand what domestic violence is. Slay cough says. The increase in awareness led to tangible policy change, president Clinton signed the violence against women act vala into law on September 13th, 1994. You can draw a direct link between the OJ trial and the creation of the first ever national domestic violence hotline, which was created by the violence against women act fund, says Rachel Louise Snyder, author of no visible bruises, what we don't know about domestic violence can kill us. And so suddenly, victims in communities had a place to go. They had a phone number to call. They had some resources to consult. The trial also led to a lot of smaller media organizations and newspapers for the first time ever reporting on domestic violence and reporting on domestic violence in their communities. A few weeks after Nicole Simpson was murdered, time ran a cover story on the subject, headlined when violence hits home. The magazine described the influx of calls to domestic violence shelters. Last week, phone calls to domestic violence hotlines surged to record numbers. Many battered women suddenly found the strength to quit their homes and seek sanctuary in shelters. Although it has been two years since the American medical association reported that as many as one in three women will be assaulted by a domestic partner in her lifetime, 4 million in any given year. It has taken the murder of Nicole Simpson to give national residence to those numbers. Everyone is acting as if this is so shocking, says Debbie Tucker, chairman of the national domestic violence coalition on public policy. This happens all the time. In Los Angeles, where calls to abuse hotlines were up 80% overall last week, experts sent a sort of awakening, as women relate personally to Simpson's tragedy..

"Are celebrating here. But in Virginia, not so much. Let's make a serious turn to Johnny Depp's ongoing deformation trial. Amber Heard took the stand yesterday saying this is one of the most painful and difficult things she has ever gone through. She also talked about the alleged abuse in her relationship. Do you remember the first time that he physically hit you? Yes. He was drinking and I didn't realize at the time, but I think he was using cocaine because it was like there was a jar, a jar. Of cocaine out on the table. I asked him about the tattoo he was, and his arm. And he said it says, why no, he says, why not? And I laughed. Was that simple? I just laughed because I thought he was joking. And just let me cross the face. And I laughed. I laugh. Because I didn't know what else to do. He said, do you think it's so funny? You think it's funny, bitch. You think you're a funny bitch. And he sent me again. I knew it was wrong, and I knew that I had to leave him. And that's a broken my heart. 'cause I didn't want to leave him. And before I know it, he starts crying. He gets down on his knees and he grabs my hands and he's touching my hands and he's saying to me, I will never do that again. I'm so sorry, baby. I put the away. I thought I killed it and it's done. I thought I put the monster away. I didn't know what to say. I just remember thinking that it was just, he was crying. He seems so sorry, and I wanted to believe him. So I chose to. Amber is expected to return to the stand later today. Johnny Depp maintains his innocence. Let's take a sharp U turn and get back to the Top Gun: Maverick premiere last night where Francesca might have met her future husband. So we all know how Tom Cruise is hardcore. But the cast over Francesca, what he's really like on set.

"Like willing to do all these things that he's doing, he met waldman through a Saudi Arabian prince Abdul Aziz bin Salman, who's the country's powerful minister of energy in 2016. This is so random, but also so predictable. After he met this guy Adam waldman, he allegedly cut out most of his inner circle. And that's what he severed ties with his agent, Tracy Jacobs, after three decades. He bad vegan to him? Yep. Well allegedly bad vegan Tim, but waldman also was the one who helped him sue his business manager for failing to pay his taxes and his entertainment lawyer for decades for $50 million for malpractice. And this is according to a report in Vanity Fair. I was also cross checking it with another article in The Hollywood Reporter. But anyway, TLDR, the chief executive of Barbara sturm, and Barbara sturm's husband, is Johnny Depp's like crazy scorched earth attorney who got kicked off of this case because he was leaking confidential materials about Amber Heard to the press. And he's represented Russian oligarchs with ties to Putin. Nick, this is, I mean, I guess we can kiss our free $400 hyaluronic. Yeah, we're not kidding. We're not getting we're not getting any sun drops anytime soon. I know. Wait, this is also breaking news before Adam waldman Barbara sturm was married to Hollywood actor George Hamilton. What? Are you kidding me? I Googled Barbara sturm husband and on alame stock photos. It's her and Hollywood actor George Hamilton and his partner Barbara sturm pose and dusseldorf Germany in July 2009. He receives George Hamilton as the super tan one, right? Yeah. Oh my God. Known for The Godfather part three, rough riders, this guy is prolific. He's been in everything. If you Google him. Yeah, he's the birthmark. He's like super, super, super tan. They were married. Also imelda Mark. Hold on hold on. No judgment. I trust me. I'm not passing judgment on dating older men, but this, okay. Hold on, hold on. I have one more piece of information. Let's do it. Have you heard of imelda Marcos? Yes. She was the wife of the former Philippine president and dictator Ferdinand Marcos. She had like an insane shoe collection lived quite extravagantly while the country was not living like that. Imelda Marcos, this is according to the AP in 1990, allegedly funneled $12 million out of the Philippines through the actor George Hamilton. This is we're entangling a huge, where is this going, Nick? What are we going to do? I feel like George Hamilton received a $6 million loan $4 million of which was secured by his estate and Benedict canyon from Antonio florindo, a Marcos confidante, and then he undertook extensive remodeling of the home and misses Marcos instructed floriano to transfer the mortgage on the house to a shell corporation 84. The shell corporation was a secret entity used by the Marcos to funnel money to Hamilton, holy shit..

"This might just be a hot way to begin, but I feel like we've got a scoop. And far be it for us to bury the lead, right? Do it. Is this a real scoop? You're the one that connects with me. It's been reported, but I don't think within our industry. It's all coming together in a crazy way. Okay. I'm gonna try to get this right. I have, I'm currently arranging to have a lawyer, a California bar certified lawyer on the podcast at some point soon, just to oh my God. Yes, to fact check us, but okay, hear me out. Side note before I get into this scoop if you can hear my child, we have closed all the doors to my recording studio AKA won't shut the fuck up about it. We can just hear her a little bit, just let it be sort of texture for the podcast. Anyway, as I was saying, Johnny Depp is currently in a defamation trial that he brought against Amber Heard for an article that she wrote an op-ed for the Washington post, which is why it's happening in Virginia, the case. Johnny Depp's lawyer, up until 2020, was a guy named Adam waldman and Adam waldman is a Washington based lawyer. He was actually thrown out the case by the judge in the case because he was basically revealing confidential information to the press. I sent you some articles, miss creek bomb. I appreciate the help because you know that I'm always logged out of all of my subscribers. Media accounts. So what Nick did was he took photos of his computer screen, but that resulted in the wavy lines. I actually couldn't really read. Okay. So essentially this guy Adam waldman is by various accounts sort of like a svengali esque figure in Johnny Depp's life. He is perhaps the reason he left his very long time agent, several years ago. He is, quote, the chief architect behind Johnny Depp's just sue everyone strategy. His background, mister waldman's background is that he's had clients, including Russian oligarchs, and allegedly Julian Assange. And this was the one line of the article that got me going. Adam waldman is married to Berlin based jetsetter and luxury skin care entrepreneur Barbara sturm. Nick. I have to say, I was skeptical at best. Slightly irritated at worst that we kept on talking about this on the podcast. And then here we are. Here we are. Not only one direct tied to the beauty industry. And we'll get to the second. And we'll get to the second. We'll get to the second. Was he also a podiatrist turn skin care entrepreneur or is that just Barbara? Barbara was an orthopedic surgeon or something in Germany, turned skin to care entrepreneur, but I guess she was like studying inflammation or part of her research and practice was about inflammation in the body. So I kind of allow her the skin care expertise because of that. However, I've never liked her products. And I know that she's like, he runs, he runs. The company. He's the chief executive of Barbara sturm, so the chief executive of Barbara sturm. Is also Johnny Depp's personal lawyer slash the Rudy Giuliani to Trump is Adam waldman to Johnny Depp. He is the reason many believe that Johnny Depp is like having these public lawsuits..
