Johnny Depp Will Be Known by the Picture Amber Heard Painted of Him

"It's gonna be tough, but you're gonna have to try and forget how great he was and Donnie brasco or Gilbert grape or Edward scissorhands or Ed wood or plenty of other films. Now he's gonna be known for what amber's testimony said and her pictures showed and that is a guy who has drugs for breakfast. We've seen the pictures, passes out in his closet for lunch and then beats her up for dinner. How long before you can forget that he used a tampon applicator to snort Coke, or that he sliced off a part of his finger because he thought she was fucking Billy Bob Thornton, and he used that finger to write whore and whatever else on a mirror in the bathroom. He's also the guy who pissed all over the floor trying to write even more hateful words, oh, and did I mention any blue is $650 million fortune. How could we all forget that? And on top of all that, you know, wait, could at least walk away believing that it was amber, whose shit on their bed. Remember that? That's what Johnny claimed. She should on my bed. Well, now we've been told, no, no, it's most likely dog shit from boo. The yorkie. The judge actually said, this is why it's so insane to have court in London. The judge said, boo had an incomplete mastery of her bowels after she had accidentally consumed some marijuana. If that was important to you, who shit on the bed as any type of redeeming fact that you can get that now. Even the dog was shitting on Johnny.

Johnny Depp Loses Libel Case Over Sun 'Wife Beater' Claim

"You know it won't be fine, Johnny Depp, Jesus Christ, talk about a ruined reputation. Because if you haven't heard already it's official, a British court found him to be a wife beater. They ruled against him in his libel suit against the sun, high court judge mister justice Nicole. So proper. Laid out his decision in a 129 page ruling and he said that after he went over the 14 allegations of abuse, he believed that Johnny Depp did assault Amber Heard and that all her allegations against him messed with her career. The judge said the claimant, mister Depp has not succeeded in his action for liable, the defendants, the son and news group newspapers have shown that what they published in the meaning, which I have held the words to bear was substantially true, the judge also defended Amber Heard against Johnny calling her a dirty gold digger. Because this judge believes that no self respecting gold digger would donate a $7 million divorce settlement to charity, even though listeners to my show know that that $7 million actually came from Elon Musk. How she's paying him back, we can only imagine. But justice Nicole believes that Johnny showed his real feelings about amber in that horrible email where he wished she were dead.

"ALF back then. I go, you got to go. You got to fucking go, bro he was a junior. I was a senior. I said, you got to go. And he left. So suddenly, out of nowhere, I'm watching scorchy, and they're sooning out sitting in my living room. At the old drunk and sexy and silly, you know, how it goes. And I'm like, well, what do you want to do? Do you want to look at some baby pictures of me? I was thinking of anything I could do. Hey, look, look at these. I was bringing out baby pictures. I was bringing out, I mean, guys, I did all I could to keep I'm sorry. I did all I could to keep her interested. And we're on the couch together. I'm finally alone with Sue and eno. It's now 1980. We're no longer freshmen. We're seniors, and everybody wants Sue. And she's in my house on my couch, and she's letting me hold her against my chest and kiss her head and kiss her ear, whatever the fuck. But I didn't go further than that. Apparently, her contact lenses were bothering her, so he took them out. We put them in some kind of liquid that she had and then that didn't work. It all ended badly. But the point is, she was right there, so when I think about these kids who were talking about cheating on exams and wearing headpieces, I'm like, you idiots don't even know what you're missing, man. You're missing your old Sue Nino. What are you doing? Put the fucking hats away. Go flirt with someone. I mean, am I the only one that has memories of that kind of stuff of people just, you know, blowing your mind and having. To be with them and then actually one day they're there with you? Oh my God, I'm not going to spoil it, but we saw a picture a few weeks ago of Sue and some girl who went to high school with and, you know, they don't look the way they used to look in 1979, but neither do I, so no harm no foul, speaking of which, I'm sorry, but listen, guys, as much as I love Johnny Depp. I'm honest enough to say the music he plays with Jeff Beck is God awful. And I've been gone up against a lot of people online who have taken to call in Johnny God dad and saying, oh, he looks so beautiful. No, Johnny Depp, Johnny dep now looks like a Johnny Depp in personator. He looks awful. I don't know. You know, I don't look like I used to look when I was a kid either. So I'm allowed to be critical here. But the drinking and the drugs and the bullshit has caught up with Johnny Depp. And it shows it's like that old adage. You die what the face you deserve. And Johnny has his now. Okay, that's it. He may have been a beautiful soul. He may still be a beautiful solid spirit. I don't doubt he is. But Scott with how beautiful or handsome he is now. He doesn't. He's not. So so many pictures and imposing with relatives and Kentucky or some shit. And while that was a really cool gesture, Johnny Depp doesn't look good anymore. None of us do. You know, you can still love him. As, you know, we've allowed Pacino or old Jack Nicholson or old Warren Beatty, but stop acting like Johnny Depp still belongs on the cover of Tiger beat. And stop what this new term, God dad. What is that? You Johnny Depp fans are starting to sound like Britney Spears nuts. Who, by the way, is back on Instagram and was rolling around naked in the sand on some beach sandy vagina is back and to hell with whatever her teenage sons want. She doesn't care,

Johnny Depp Is Dating the Wrong Lawyer

"Johnny Depp dating his lawyer, yep. What have we all say back during the trial? We all thought they looked a little too comfortable. We knew he had the hots for Camille Vasquez, the way she looked at him and here they are now officially date. What? What's that? It's not Camille? But no, but it's a lawyer. Oh, I never heard it. I've never heard of her. Okay. Never mind. Johnny Depp switched us up, we all thought he and Camille Vasquez would get together. But it turns out he had his eye on his other lawyer. Joel rich, who wrapped him in his trial in the UK, take a look at the pictures, all I can say is he chose the wrong lawyer. You'd think he'd want to date the lawyer who won his case, not the one who lost his case, but wonderful guy, no hard feelings. Just feelings.

Did Trump Take the Wheel Like Cassidy Hutchinson Said?

"Hutchinson was an aide to former White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, at prick, and she testified about Trump's actions to the special congressional committee investigating the rights. So Trump promised during his speech on January 6th to march to Capitol Hill with his supporters to protest Congress certifying the 2020 election results. That we all know. But when the president was told by a security detail that they would not take him to the capitol, he got upset. Apparently they were told, they told him they've got guns, and he said, I don't care that I hear the shoot me. Let's get to the capitol. So Hutchinson testified with a very straight face. And this is the kind of people, this is the kind of person the left just loves. The kind of person that comes out of the woodwork to make these crazy charges and the left thinks she's got no book to sell. She's not trying to get a job at MSNBC. She must be real. No, no, no. Hold your horses. So Hutchinson said that Trump told his security detail the president said something to the effect of on the effing president, take me up to Capitol Hill now. And then he lunged at the steering wheel, and that's the story or not all told her. She also said Trump used his free hand to lunge at his security detail. When mister owner actor or not to had recounted this story to me, he had motioned towards his clavicle. Hutchinson's testimony is offering new alleged details, obviously, about the president's actions on that day. As the Democrat led committee continues to try to paint Trump as an unhinged lunatic who poses a serious threat to American democracy, they're just scared shit, he's going to run again and really kick some tables over. She was not physically present for the events. He described, but based her testimony on hearsay, she got from a member of the Secret Service. I can't do that. Where is Johnny Depp's lawyer right now? Objection hearsay. Objection leading. We need Camille Vasquez. Well, listen, you PEEP on the left, hold your tongues and push back your victory party. Because I'm hearing now in the last few minutes that the Secret Service in question offered to testify under oath that the story about Trump trying to commandeer the assault commandeer that the assault and attempt to attempt to steer the beast never happened.

And we're back with more of that trial. Madison, I feel like it's time for me to ask you a question. As someone who famously on the record has said, you want nothing to do with this. What is your impression been of who the Internet is siding with over the past few weeks? Oh, 120% Johnny Depp, both anecdotally and listening to people I know talk in watching snippets of tiktoks. I didn't choose to watch. And frankly, I had kind of almost forgotten about the best way to explain this is I went to see the new fantastic beast movie. I'm sorry. I did give that woman my money. And it wasn't until I sat down and remembered, oh, they recast Johnny Depp in this. Mmm um. That I started to recall all of the things I previously knew about Johnny Depp. I don't know if this is true for you as well. And maybe it's just because deep down I have some shred of hope for humanity love, but I was genuinely shocked by the level of support for Johnny Depp. I shouldn't have been, but I was. I mean, Rachel, I think that's how you and I continue to be able to do this job day in day out, is that that little shred. That's your sanity. The thing about Depp's fan base is that it is been incredibly mobilized and that's diplomatic over the past few years, even before the UK trial in 2020. Any time Amber Heard was in the news, if you and by you, I mean me because I'm nosy, search her name on Twitter, you would just see tweet after tweet calling her a liar and abuser, demanding justice for Johnny Depp, it sounds kinda orchestrated, maybe that's the word I'm looking for? Yeah. Yeah. To me, it had all the markings of a classic alt right men's rights campaign mixed with just a smidgen of toxic fandom and like a healthy dash of misogyny. And the thing is, I don't think we're the only ones feeling this. There are people online with otherwise feminist leanings. Who are feeling that same kind of whiplash or ambivalence to, even if they say they're on Johnny's side. So based on the evidence that I've heard so far and this is faded this me. I believe Johnny Depp has been abused by amber hert. But yesterday on Facebook I saw a comment by a man who said what if we lay another woman down in Hollywood? And that's how I have been feeling. I think that ambivalence comes from the fact that the evidence that people are hearing or that they're encountering, they aren't encountering just organically. This isn't just some trial where the information is leaking out in an equal way. A vice piece actually revealed that the daily wire, which was founded by Ben Shapiro, has spent tens of thousands of dollars pushing anti herd content on Facebook. Man, I know trust but verify, but do you ever hear a piece of reported information in just immediately go, yes, that makes sense. And so people who I think otherwise would have either treated this child as something to wait until the end to see what's happening, are now being pumped with 6 weeks worth of anti herd content that, listen, I don't have the resources to prove this just the experience, but it feels AstroTurf to me. The existence of hashtags that have sprung up around the trial like hashtag men who or Amber Heard as a psychopath with psychopaths spelled incorrectly. It spells out Ashton turfing in these bright neon lights. Speaking of spelling out astroturfing, if you look that up in merriam Webster, and you actually can, it's defined as organized activity that is intended to create a false impression of a widespread spontaneously arising grassroots movement in support or in opposition to something like political policy, but that is in reality initiated and controlled by a concealed group or organization. TLDR, people paying to run anti Amber Heard content on Facebook and playing you into believing it was organic. And so it takes a lot more than a hunch proved bad activities, so take this with a grain of salt. But again, I and you have spent years on the Internet watching these campaigns unfold and finding out later that when researchers who have millions of dollars of the disposal have the time to look into this, they find out that this was all just a giant bot campaign. There are some signs that are very familiar to me. There are experts who have testified on behalf of Amber Heard, who are now having their businesses online reviews bombed. That's when a brigade of quote unquote people immediately go to the Yelp page of a restaurant or a psychiatrist office or whatever and give a bunch of zero star reviews so that you can't actually find any useful information anymore. And even people who don't actually have anything to do with the trial as in aren't experts testifying as in people who are just commenting on it in media, are dealing what looks like coordinated suspicious bot activity. One of those experts spoke to The Guardian after the UK libel case, and they said they reported about a hundred suspicious accounts who targeted him after he spoke about the trial. And when he checked again later, 50 to 60 of them were now gone. I don't want to use the G word, but for a little group. It is. It's giving Gamergate. Unfortunately, it's giving what these people wanted to give. And just like Gamergate, I feel like this trial has really long ranging implications. Not least the Amber Heard is now being tried in a court of public opinion and the effect that will have on her career or on her mental state, but the effect it has on survivors of abuse who have written about how harrowing it is to see an army of people bots are not mobilized to discredit herd. They've talked about what it feels like to hear or read over and over that this is not how a victim of abuse would act, which is, I feel like we shouldn't have to say it, but there is no specific way that victims of abuse should react or act. There's no right way to do that. I just keep thinking about the fact that all of this springs from a post me too op-ed that didn't even mention Johnny Depp by name. That's the origin point. It's terrifying because, I mean, it feels like it's been at least, I don't know, a quarter of a century since me too. But do you remember the kind of glut of first person testimony that happened in 2017, the amount of people who spoke up and said essentially this happened to me too? Yes, I do work in the personal essay, industrial complex that is our business. What this case that Depp has brought against herd means is that all those people, even if they didn't name their abusers, are now opened up to civil cases from their abusers who could claim that just based on the fact that, you know, three of their friends saw their ex tweeting me to new or assume they were talking about their ex, that's enough to say that you've been to famed. The simple act of saying the two in a context where people might know your abuser could now open you up to a defamation case. And obviously, I think it goes without saying that the stakes are different if your abuser is Johnny Depp and you are Amber Heard, but this will have implications.

"depp" Discussed on The Secret History of the Future

"The views which can then be monetized is all pro dep, which is how we get video titles like top Johnny Depp comebacks and reactions to questioning while testifying. Or Johnny Depp expert colon, how Amber Heard faked abuse evidence. Even people who absolutely have no reason as in should not in any way touch this child to ten foot pole are piling onto Amber Heard in an attempt to get those views. It's not just child lawyers who at the very least have a law degree. We haven't checked, but in theory, I hope they're not lying on the Internet who would do that. I mean, but speaking of lying, I have you heard about the milani of it all. I have a vague knowledge that there is some makeup plotline involved in this trial and I know nothing more. And you're gonna let me stay that way, right? Uh huh, yeah. Cover your ears. There is a makeup plot line, and I think this plot line more than anything goes to show just how clickable and monetizable anti Amber Heard content is. So one of the most viral moments from this trial came when one of amber's lawyers held up a color correcting kit. And said, this is what amber carried in her purse for the entire relationship with Johnny Depp. So a color correcting kit for the people who don't do makeup, usually includes a green, a white, a purple, and like a kind of orangey color, and you mix them together to make color theory and create a base that will cover up anything from bruises, to zits, to discoloration, like hyperpigmentation, things like that. So color correcting kids are very common. A depth ban on TikTok noted that the specific kit that amber's lawyer brought to court seemed to be from the cosmetics brand milani. Milani, the official verified brand, then decides to get it on this and made this video. And that's the unexplained what's happening in this video to the sound of a cutesy little backyard against bob is someone from milani, pointing out that the specific color correcting kit, the lawyer had, was released in 2017, which is a year after Depp and heard broke up. Depth, extremely rapid fan base, took this as evidence that heard was lying. That video is now the milani TikTok's account, most watched video with over 5 million views. So when BuzzFeed reached out to milani, they had this to say, our video was severed by the claim that our eagle eyed and loyal fan base made about the product named in the trial. Milani cosmetics is not taking a formal stance on the trial. Evidence or future outcome of the case. Do you want to know why they can't take a formal stance on any of the evidence? No, because I can't hear you, but yes, tell me. Because hearth lawyer quite literally never said that the specific color correcting kit that heard carried was from milani. All she said was that heard learned about how to use specific colors to cover bruises. Milani's name has never been mentioned in that courtroom, but milani the brand got what they wanted, which is views. Okay, so the lawyer then was just using the makeup kit as a prop, as a dramatic demonstration of here. This is a representation. Yes, exactly. And importantly, someone just guessed that that was a milani color correcting kit. There is actually no proof that the one she even held up was from milani. So as content like this gets pumped out from verified brands like milani and DuoLingo or celebrities like Lance Bass, casual observers are left with the overwhelming impression that the entire Internet is against Amber Heard. On TikTok, the hashtag justice for Johnny Depp now has 18.6 billion views as of the time of recording while the hashtag justice for Amber Heard has 65.2 million views. I feel like this is one of those moments where I wish I had a brain that was better at understanding spatially numerically the difference between a billion and a million. Yes, I know that one is much larger than the other. But that is a huge difference. Truly, sometimes we talk about trends, right? It's like a gap of a few million or a 100 million, and that's a lot, but that's massive for two equal players in online drama sounds wrong, but we'll call it an online drama. Exactly. And it's not entirely clear to someone who's just watching this happen, who doesn't actually want to be in any way involved in this trial, why that is. In a post me too world, where did this overwhelming support for Depp, a man with it's not controversial to say deeply checkered past come from? Is it just this fan base that he's managed to build over a four decade career? Is something else going on? And for me, the most important question I feel like I've had is what exactly does that rabbit overwhelming support mean for survivors of abuse watching this trial? All really important questions we'll get into after just a quick break.

Okay, that's honestly good for you. I will say that in those 5 to ten years, both of them have come out as gay and then they are now also dating each other. Also Dan left YouTube. But he came back. So really not a lot has changed since the last time you checked in, but in this video where he comes back, which is titled why I quit YouTube. Here I am, so that begs the question. It turns out, despite everything, I can't help it. I love this gosh darn heck hole. It is still strongly on. He uses none other than I see why am I theme song which I think is an Easter egg to tell everyone in the world that he loves us. Yes, that's definitely it.

Of course, thank you, Dan Howe, who I can only assume is listening to this podcast right now because you're such a big fan. We love you. Hi, Dan. Bye Dan. That's all the time we have for fun today. Unfortunately. Because, yes, that is correct. We are getting into Madison's favorite topic. Aka talking about the trial that has broken the Internet. Why? We must we must. Why? You gonna answer? Yes. I know you already discussed this battle between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard with our incredible guest host moist Mendes on the episode, the trial everyone TikTok, but I had COVID. And I'm obsessed with this child. So I'm overruling all the times you've grown in that segment to say that we have to talk about it again. That's why. Not you using COVID as an excuse. Can't argue with that. But there's also just so much there, Madison. There's toxic fandom and astroturfing, which if you don't know what that is, we will explain it later in the show, but there's Ben Shapiro spending thousands of dollars on anti Amber Heard as on Facebook. There's a YouTube reaction video economy and of course we can not forget good old fashioned American misogyny. Yes. That I'm very familiar with. And it sounds like at least we're talking about something new, although speaking of misogyny, I will say, based on my mentions after that episode in which we talked about this a little bit, here's your friendly daily reminder that women don't owe you anything when talking about abuse. Yeah, that feels, you know, abundantly clear. But for the people in the back, if you don't agree with us. That's okay. We're going to talk about it anyway. I guess as much as I hate that we're still talking about this. I did open up TikTok today and find not an Amber Heard lip sync, but instead a guitarist strumming along chords in tune with the technical notes that Amber Heard was saying. Oh, my God. She's, you know, weeping on the stand, giving testimony in this guitarist is just strumming along. Like, it's a bad timeline. It is, and you and moist has got into a lot of the bad timeline, specifically on TikTok. And while we can not entirely avoid the clock app on today's episode, we will mostly be getting into the trial ubiquity outside of TikTok and the various many.

"Depp has done nothing wrong in his entire life, right? So instead of it being an actual conversation about, hey, this was a very toxic relationship involving a complicated situation with complicated people and also like survivors don't have to be perfect. And people should just be allowed to talk about what happened to them. And we should have space for that. But we can not have those kind of nuanced conversations evidently. So, and I think that there might be a reckoning about this case and people are going to be like, oh my gosh, can you believe this became such a media circus? And nobody recognized people are complex and complicated. And it just reminds me so much of, you know, I thought we were, you know, maybe getting past that narrative that needing for like, oh, in ten years, you know, like Tonya Harding. Like how we talked about Tonya Harding was so horrible or how we talked about and Nicole Smith was so horrible or look at what happened to Britney. I can't believe nobody said anything. And I just feel like we're just in that same cycle. And I think that there's three main takeaways here that I have so disinformation is really going to impact everything, including the law if we do not watch out. Because we see it can make or break your narrative, it can break people and events, and it's powerful, and I don't think it should be underestimated. And we've got to figure out how we're going to deal with disinformation. And again, we just not created space for conversations about imperfect survivors in these situations. And that there is a backlash to me too and believe women, there is a backlash to the feminist movement as a whole. And gains that that's had, there's a backlash to, you know, is connected to backlash against LGBTQ people as well, because what can not be left unsaid is Amber Heard is bisexual and I'm very familiar with these biphobic narratives that bisexual women are manipulative liars. I've never heard of that. I've never heard, didn't know she was bisexual. I've never heard of that. That's not part of this? I think it has to be said. I do think it has to be said because also a lot of what her allegations are, is that Johnny Depp was afraid she was going to sleep with other women. Oh, I didn't know that. Wow. Boy, I wish we had another hour to kind of explore all of that. I think those takeaways are incredibly useful. The last thing that I would add to your set of takeaways that struck me is that there is a deeper record here that there is the UK proceeding that if you're taking in what you're seeing and you want to have an informed opinion, make sure you're not taking in information selectively. Yes. And that's what I really tried to do here because and that's what I really tried to and I hope that I did strike a good balance here without falling into these sort of traps. But again, it's so difficult because there is so much disinformation or so much misinformation out there and also my last takeaway, I think here is people will do anything for ratings still in this day and age except now everybody is a content creator. I would like to add an ironclad rule of the Internet is if you see everybody going after a woman, don't just instantly believe what they're saying and jump on the bandwagon because I think that's been proven to be incredibly harmful. Almost every time. So yeah, thanks for the breakdown, Morgan. I know Andrew learned a lot. Two of these people are and what any of this is. No, I did as well. I really didn't know much about this. So thanks so much,.

"The fan video, just to make everybody good and depressed, has 4.6 million likes on TikTok, 38 million views, milani TikTok has 5.5 million views and 1.1 million likes, and it is by far their most viral content. So congratulations to them, they made a viral moment happen out of a trial that involves domestic abuse. And when they were asked about this, they said, our video was to verify the claim that our eagle eyed and loyal fan base made about the product named of a trial. Milani cosmetics is not taking a formal stance on a trial evidence or future outcome of the case. But as BuzzFeed news pointed out, the account has been replying to Depp's fans and liking comments, including one reading newest milani model Johnny Depp. It's just very gross that they are using this opportunity as, you know, to create this viral moment for themselves, but obviously that's not what Amber Heard's lawyer was saying. Regardless of how you want to weigh the testimony here in this really messy case, survivors of abuse are going to see this. And they're going to see how you talk about this. They're going to see how you treat these. How you're treating Amber Heard. And honestly, I've seen people to do that. I have seen Friends of mine do that, and I've thought I don't know if that's somebody that I would feel safe talking to, if any of this happened to me, because I don't feel safe with that. There's been another video that claimed that heard did a bump in the middle of her testimony. What? Yes. Yeah. Did some precious little cinnamon bun, but cocaine. You know what a bump is from Madison Cawthorn, Andrew. Yeah, a tweet that went viral is that, yo, I've done some shit in my day, but I've never had a stones to do cocaine in a courtroom, that it has a video of Amber Heard holding a tissue to her nose and rubbing it and supposedly they're like, oh, she was sniffing the cocaine there. So precious little cinnamon bun, but that's not how one in just cocaine, right? Okay. Yeah, no, I know that. Unless the judge, I guess, spiked the tissues with Coke somehow, like, again, it's normal tissues. That sounds horrible, but I would not be shocked if somebody made that claim at this point because people have lost their complete minds. So it actually the video is altered. They edit the sequence of events to make it look like she pulled the tissue out of her lap and then supposedly like rubbed her nose and then you know she puts it back down 'cause obviously I guess that the implication there is, this is her special cocaine tissue, right? But actually what she does is you can see the box of tissues is on the stand. She pulls a tissue out because this is actually at a very emotional part of her testimony and she pulls out the tissue and rubs her nose with that. But they edited that to make it look as if, again, which even if she had done that, that makes no sense. That is an insane thing to believe. If you believe that, please go outside and touch some grass, go outside. Your family misses you. There's also another viral video claiming her pause for a photo. And look, she instantly stopped her crying, so this proves she's acting. And the video is actually all that video is also altered. And there's even another version that adds a sound effect and flash. Andrew, can you tell me is flash photography? Usually allowed in courtrooms? No. A 100% not? No, that's why they have those sketch artists unless the sketch artist had like a flashbulb on their pencil, you know? Hold on, hold still for my sketch. Okay. Yeah, they're acting like this is a courtroom scene from a musical Chicago, right? It's insane. This is the 1920s. Like, you know, everybody's like, hey, miss, wanting to snap a photo. But yeah, that is, and then there's another one that is saying that this went viral, especially on Twitter, but it's made the rounds on TikTok and other social media as well as a disinformation often will. And it said basically that amber, I mean, you'll be able to tell what's wrong here. And Amber Heard's opening statement, she said, the thing with Johnny, it's like the sun shines on you and it's glorious and then he forgets you and it's very cold and it goes on in the post claims that this is exactly what Margaret Sherwood says about Dickie and the talented mister Ripley. We got her ladies and gentlemen, she's literally quoting from movies that shows that she's acting. Amber Heard did not make an opening statement. Yes. I was taking that to colloquially mean like the start of her testimony. So what is the real story? Did the lawyers quote from that movie in their opening statement or it's just all made up? It's literally made up. And then other people are taking clips. Yeah, that one's just like somebody tweeting that and just saying that she did it. So therefore, it's fine. You can just repeat that. It's fine. So there's other people saying that she's quoting movies by saying things like, well, he drank lots of tea or saying things like the most beautiful woman in the world, which are obviously, you know, very generic lines, like those aren't from, and then snopes pointed out that you could easily do the same thing with Johnny Depp's testimony. You could say, oh, loved her instantly. That's a line from American outlaw, right? There's so many, like you could easily do that. I don't even know what this allegedly would prove. Like, I feel like she's acting. But acting doesn't mean you speak in old movie quotes, that's a weird. Obviously, on time to go through all the disinformation, that's out there about this case. And also this case is not finished. So the trial will resume on May 16th. The judge has said that she would like for closing to be the Friday before Memorial Day. And that's the idea. And then I don't know how long the jury is going to deliberate, right? And juries are very interesting creatures, so it's possible that, again, the jury says, okay, well, Johnny Depp clearly hasn't met the burden here, right? He hasn't met the burden of showing defamation. Or they might just, they might think, okay, well, the issues here are very complicated and muddled. They might split the baby on it, right? And say, okay, you get this much money, this person gets that much money or, you know, nobody gets anything. And there's just a lot of really awful narratives that are seeping into here. So I think that this is a way where you can say me too has gone too far and believe women is nonsense. But if you say that outright, people are going to call you a sexist asshole. But if you say, oh, well, look, Amber Heard, then it's fine. And also, I think there are people who do want to bring attention to male victims, which absolutely exist, and we should be bringing more attention to them. And I think that there are people who are hopeful that Johnny Depp is breaking the stigma and people will seek help and or knowledge that they're being abused, and there's also people who want to acknowledge male victims being very well meaning here. But there's sort of a trap here where if I don't believe Johnny Depp is an innocent boy, do you know wrong, then I don't care about male victims, therefore anything that I say about me too can be discredited, right? So I think that's really the insidious thing you have to watch for and how you talk about this. And if you do believe that if you want to make commentary on this whole mutual abuse situation, then go for it, I guess, but again, I think that's a situation that I am deferring to on experts there. That's why I haven't really talked about this trial and been out there. Well, this is my personal opinion on it. I'm just here to tell you, here's what happened. Here's things in context. Altered things that people have made. And also, I do find it very weird that there are people who are determined to get this certain narrative out there. And this is my theory and again, this is just my opinion, but I don't know that Johnny Depp actually cares if he wins or loses this case. I think the court of public opinion is what matters. Right. Because it doesn't matter what the jury comes back with. If a jury says, hey, you didn't prove defamation or if they split the baby on it or whatever, it doesn't matter. The narrative is that amber heart is a lying psychopath who is making absolutely everything that happened to her up..

"But yeah, but the judge points out, it would make sense for amber a friend of hers to do that because that night death left for one of his other properties, which, you know, is an insane thing that because rich people do not live like us. But you know, he just went to one of his other houses that night, so how would that get back at Depp if he wasn't even staying there? Doesn't seem like an ironclad counter argument to me, but yeah, it's not ironclad, right? But again, the issue, again, as the UK judge points out, like, this is a defamation case. And this is about did you yeah, and again, this is where a lot of these issues are getting crossed over, right? Because the issue legally here is okay, well, did you abuse Amber Heard? Like, did the sun make that up, essentially? Did she make that up? The issue isn't like, oh, well, you know, what amber did was bad or even, you know, if you want to go super dark, did she deserve it? But anyways, I'm glad that people got hashtag me poo trending on Twitter, so great work with that guys. I'm super happy about that. Another thing that people have been saying is that amber's disjointed testimony proves she's lying. So there's a case where she is talking about she's talking about being physically assaulted and she keeps she mentions that, oh, I just kept thinking, you know, the dirty carpet, the dirty carpet, and people have been mocking this on TikTok. And there's also been just join a testimony with her saying, I thought he was punching me and breaking it down, and then later on her testimony, it's clear she's actually talking about, again, huge trigger warning here. But she's talking about being sexually assaulted with a bottle. And thanking the pressure from that and the movement from that was that Depp was punching her. And people thought this was hilarious. They made videos saying, oh, I wish Johnny Depp would do that to me. And she testified in a way that wasn't linear and she was acting and well, a real victim would act like this and the testimony was disjointed. And as somebody who's been through traumatic events, I can tell you like often how you will remember that is, especially in the aftermath, is disjointed. Because your brain is going through a traumatic event. And when people are saying things like, oh, no tears came out in which the follow-up, you know, I've seen where somebody's like, no, here's her crying, and they'll say, oh, well, you know, she's acting. She's an actress. And again, there's nothing you can say. It just gives me the same vibes of when people say, you know, oh, well, you know, the husband didn't grieve, right? So he must have killed his wife, and then you find out 20 years later, you know, the innocence project gives him all death threat, right? So it's that same narrative of like, oh, well, you have to testify in a certain way and will a real victim would do that, which are things that you would think now, especially in the me too era that, as I call it, people were past that right, were saying, well, no, victims actually act different ways, but the thing is when the victim is somebody who may be unlikeable. Or that people don't want to believe or accuses someone people like, because I mean, who was coming out swinging for Harvey Weinstein. It's not like a bunch of Gen Z kids were like, oh, Harvey Weinstein is my idol, you know? So when it happens with somebody in that situation or even when it's somebody who she does acknowledge she hit Johnny Depp, does that mean that she, again, that people are kind of having the sort of like, well, maybe she deserved it. She gave as good as she got or it's just, I don't think that framing is helpful or useful to anybody, and I think it's actually really harmful. So stop that. You're going to have to turn off the Internet. So another big thing that came out and this was and I'm going to start talking more about specific videos that have gone viral now. So this concerns a makeup palette, which, I mean, every detail has been combed over Bobby's fans. And I think part of that is sort of the true crime phenomenon, which I'm somebody who listens to true crime content reads, you know, those kind of books. But I think there's a way to engage with it in a way that's more healthy than in other ways. And I think people have forgotten that this is a case about real people. And I think people are, you know, almost kind of desperate to be part of a story in a way that's like, oh, I found something that no one else did. Or I found a detail that proves that, you know, Johnny Depp is innocent and I'm the one who, by finding these little details, almost like it's an episode of unsolved mystery mysteries and you think, oh, if only I noticed this one thing on unsolved mysteries, I'm going to be able to solve the case. But this is a case involving two people and it involves domestic abuse and it's getting very problematic. So her attorney, she held up a color correcting kit. So this is a makeup palette that will have various colors like orange green and purple, and basically the idea is you color correct your skin to cover blemishes. It's basic color theory, so purple will cancel out yellowness in your skin or Reddit orange will cancel out purplish in black, so dark circles, green will cancel out redness, et cetera. So if the attorney holds up this color correcting kit and says, I have so glad we have you on the ship to explain. I figured some listeners might be like, what the hell is a color correcting kit? And at least 50% of the hosts. So I greatly appreciate that. So the attorney holds up this color correcting kit and says, this is what amber carried in her parts to the entire relationship with Johnny Depp. This is used during opening statements and in the context is she's saying amber used makeup to cover up her bruises and injuries. So a depth fan creates a TikTok that is clearly a fan edit of some fangs, but then the TikTok ends by pointing out that the color corrector the attorney is holding is a malani color corrector, and that didn't come out until 2017, which is after the abuse allegedly occurred because the divorce happened in 2016. So obviously, that's not the attorney was using this as a prop to form an emotional connection with the jury. Yeah, if I pull out a pen and I'm like, my client had to carry this pan around with them, and then it's like, well, that pen was issued in 2019. You're like, okay, it's a pen. I didn't mean the literal pen this exact pen. Exactly. So then milani, the manufacturer of that color corrector, that the attorney held up decided they needed to make a big viral moment for themselves and make themselves the main character essentially. So what they did is they do something on TikTok called stitching. So you can take the you can take parts of somebody's TikTok video and do your own reaction to it. So they give us with this debt fans TikTok and it shows someone at the company pointing out that it did indeed come out in 2017. And this TikTok made by the makeup company plays a it's flying a song in the background where the lyrics say, you know, I'm an international super spy and their spy music playing and they're pointing to the catalog of your showing 2017 and they're pointing to a screen that says, yeah, it came out in 2017..

"So the first one we have and this is a popular one that's basically that Amber Heard defecated in their bed to get back at Johnny Depp because she's such a bad person. So the judge. Yeah, it's insane. This case has gotten insane. I had to watch a deposition with a man who is vaping and driving while he was being deposed. It was somebody that worked for Johnny Depp and it was a taped deposition that they were admitting into the courts and apparently while the man was being deposed. He was vaping and driving because it was done over Zoom, so that was a lot. It's a new world we live in, Andrew, it's a new can we say that to our clients if the officers of Pedro Torres represents you and you are being deposed, please take that deposition from your house while not vaping? Thanks. Remember the one that was, I can't remember we talked about this, but pretty early in the pandemic, where a guy was in traffic court and appeared while driving and used the zoom background to try to not look like he was driving. Remember that? That was great. Surpassed only, of course, by the way. I am not a cat. Of course. The classic. I feel like we need to annually celebrate that moment amongst the lawyers. It can be like our extra Christmas. But yeah, so this one narrative is that, yeah, again, Amber Heard defecating the bed to get back at Johnny Depp because, you know, she's a psychopath. So the UK judgment mentioned several reasons why the judge doesn't believe it was amber or friend of hers, but he does present like the evidence that Johnny Depp's team presented, which was the housekeeper belief that the dogs couldn't have done that. And apparently at the time, one of the her line manager said her told him it was a harmless prank. Please tell me we got forensic poop experts that came in and argued back and forth as to whose poop this was. Man, it's gotten out of the things I have had to look into, the things I have seen and read and watch, I deserve extra compensation. And a vacation. So it would Arkansas. I mean, hey, I can have fun wherever. This episode is brought to you by buck mason clothing. We all have our favorite go tos, shirts, sweaters, jeans, stuff you wear all the time? Well, as I was getting dressed this morning, I realized a lot of my go tos are from buck mason ever since I got some buck mason clothing. I'm wearing it all the time. I'll tell you why. It's because of the high quality mostly for me. I hate thin cheap clothing that wears out after you wash it a couple times. That is the exact opposite of buck mason. I got this really cool heavy cotton T-shirt that is just, it's thick with two C's. I'll say I'll put it down. That thing is not going anywhere. It's not gonna get worn out 'cause it's so well made. I love it. Buck mason's clothes are second to none. They're timeless, and they never go out of style. Everything I've gotten from them fits right out of the box and it becomes my new favorite buck mason has all the essentials, jeans, shirts, jackets, and so much more. I love the tailored looking fit of their t-shirts and I already told you that even after I put them through the wash, a lot of times 'cause I wear them a lot, they still look just as good as when I got them. I think that once you try buck mason, they'll become your go tos too. Head over to buck mason dot com slash OA and get a free T-shirt with your order. That's BU CK, MAS.

"TMZ instantly was like, this gold digger and this, you know, she's making it everything up and things like that. So she said, hey, that's great. I would love to settle this privately, but kind of hard to do that when, you know, TMZ is running insane stuff about me. So she's saying everything I'm doing has been as a defensive move. And I don't want to do this because I still love you and care about you, which Depp also says that about her, right? That he cares about her and loves her, but her brings up that she has evidence. So because Depp keeps saying, oh, well, do you want to go to court? Do you want to go to court? And then she says, well, here's the thing. I have evidence about she's talking about the abuse and this context, right? She says, she has photos, messages, et cetera, so she says, hear of a possibility. One, I'm lying, and I've been, you know, just holding on to this evidence for years for no reason. And I'm lying about, you know, at a secretly been at some secret Fight Club or something, or two, these are true. What do you think people are going to believe? Quick question with respect to that, how much of the evidence in connection with the UK defamation trial is public? Not all of it. There are certain, but again, there is enough to where there is a 126 page judgment. And where he is laying out evidence he heard, he will say, you know, mister Murthy testified to this, you know, regarding incident number three, I actually really like the way that the British judgment is laid out. Because the judge is a fact finder there, right? So he's like, here are the facts that were all presented. Here is what I found. This is why I found this way. This is how I weighed this evidence. This is why, you know, I believe this testimony was more credible than that testimony, which again, you're free to disagree with, but it's out there. So the fact that people are saying, oh, well, this was a rigged trial or something like that. That is not true. And also, he was able to appeal. That's never a great argument. Yeah. Because yeah, that isn't a good argument. You're right. It is dumb. And to say, oh, it was somehow rigged. These are celebrities. Did have a right of appeal and he did try to appeal that case, but basically the court said, no, there's no reason for the judge found what he found. Sorry, man. Oh, so the court affirmed on appeal. Yes. Oh, wow. Okay. So fair to say that if you have an opinion about the news coverage of the current debt heard trial with respective claims of defamation, that to have an informed opinion you ought to at least read the British court's judgment. Yes. And again, you can disagree with what the judge found. That's fine. But at least look at it. Is what I'm saying instead of believing, you know, altered tiktoks basically and out of context, you know. Studied all the relevant underlying tiktoks for this case. Morgan, I know what I'm talking about. It's concerning. It's very scary to me that this is where it's going, but yeah, so this is where that snippet comes from this audio recording. This is like a big smoking gun just so Andrew, like among the redditors, the TikTokers. This is a huge smoking gun that Morgan's breaking down Andrew that's like, who are they going to believe me or you kind of thing? Yes. So hertz said she had to defend herself from these allegations being brought by TMZ. And she also brings up, hey, when my friend, it was a third party of VAERS, IO is a man's name. But she said, hey, what he called the cops that wasn't me who called the cops during this incident, and when the cops came, I didn't cooperate with them. And Depp is debt brings up, yeah, but you're the one who told him to call the police, and she says, okay, well, I did that because I was afraid for my life in that moment, and I thought you were going to accidentally kill me. And then Deb responds by saying, I lost a finger that night, which the finger situation is very murky. I don't have time to get into it, but there's different stories about how deaf accidentally cut off a finger tip, cut it off himself. He claims that he lost his fingertip when heard through a bottle of vodka at him. The claim that he makes now, but he says, I lost a finger at night and says, amber threw a can of mineral spirits at his nose. That's when amber says, you can tell people it was a fair fight and then see what the jury and judge thinks. Tell the world Johnny, tell them. Johnny Depp, I, a man, I'm a victim too of domestic violence. It's a fair fight and see how many people believe or side with you. She says, which is a bad thing to say, because that's not accurate. And I'm not saying that that was a good thing to say or that she was right to say this or even that she never hit Johnny Depp because she says I was a 115 pound woman and dep says, oh yeah, but you would start it and amber says, okay, well did I overpower you in depth says, okay, will you try? And then she goes on to say, yes, but I have all this evidence that you would be used me and she does mention the size difference again. And you know, of course, I'm not saying like amber was right and saying this or that she even is a perfect survivor with this. But again, the issue of a defamation trial is, was she lying when she said, Johnny Depp abused her. And there's one expert witness who called this situation mutual abuse, but for reasons that I'm going to get into, I'm not 100% sure about that terminology because apparently amongst domestic abuse experts, this is a very divisive thing. The concept of this mutual abuse. So with that, I just prefer to leave that debate to the experts. And again, this is why I kind of the courtroom isn't really the best forum to sort of untangle this very toxic relationship where I believe abuse did occur. I think that this debate within the scholarship of domestic abuse about, okay, well, is mutual abuse of thing? I don't think that that's best for people on TikTok or Twitter to be really having discourse about right now, because it's not settled amongst the experts. Themselves. And I prefer to leave that conversation amongst amongst them. It's a messy situation for, I think, this court to figure out, I do not envy the jurors here in Amber Heard does acknowledge that she says we called each other horrible things. She, she says she would hit that, hit him, and she would throw things at him, but she's saying that she did hit him out of a space of self defense. But I don't think that you can say based on what I've seen that Amber Heard is a psychopath who is making up everything that has happened to her. And Johnny Depp is a sweet innocent small being who did nothing wrong, right? I don't think that's what people should be getting out of this. And I think that there are things that people can get out of it, but again, I think that the space of mutual abuse that's happening between the parties and that kind of language, I'm just very, I'm not comfortable with using that myself because of what the experts say. So for some experts that say, no, there is a primary person who is the abuser, and then there is somebody who is, you know, the abuse survivor, right? And what the survivor does is act out of self defense. So I'm not an expert in that field. Do you have any idea how the law views that? Is it just kind of up to a jury to decide, yeah, you gave this person a black eye and so your abusive or no, I fought back and in the process of that, yes, I might have caused harm to them, but it was because I was fighting in self defense. Yeah, that's an issue of fact, so that's for the jury to sort out. So I want to talk about just some of the big narratives that are going around about this trial and just sort of talk about that..

"Happy casting wife beater Johnny Depp in the new fantastic base film. So I, of course, distastefully using a Harry Potter pun because this was referring to Johnny Depp being cast in the Harry Potter spin off fantastic beasts. So Johnny Depp sues news group newspapers. This is ng, which owns the sun, and the sun's executive editor who wrote the article for defamation. So this is taking place and basically American listeners can think of this as a civil trial court. It's the queen's bench division of the high court. But Depp is making these coins for defamation in an English court. And listeners may recall me discussing elements of definition in my Cardi B segment. Those standards are American standards, which you will need to keep in mind for later, but it is very easy to win a judgment on defamation in the UK. There were some reforms that were done in 2013, but compared to the U.S., it's a lot easier. So for libel in the UK, you have to have one a negative fault statement of fact to that cause or was likely to cause serious harm to the claimant's reputation, three the statement referred to the climate and four of a statement was published. Also, the burden of proof is actually on the defendant, not the plaintiff to show that the statement was not false. Besides, exactly. So the sun is having to show basically that no, actually, Johnny Depp was a wife beater. Wow. And there's no sort of New York Times V Sullivan difference between public and non public figures. Okay, okay. They do not care if you are a public figure. This is not the Cardi B case. Yep. Got it. So additionally, in English court, the more serious the allegation, the higher of a strength and quality of the evidence that the allegation is true must be, and where the allegation is one regarding serious criminality, clear evidence is required. So it's a lot easier there. So what ngin did was they presented 14 incidents where they alleged that Depp was abusive to Amber Heard. Substance abuse disorder would exacerbate his anger, cause him to have blackouts, and then he wouldn't remember what happened, but he would have frequently abused her in those moments. And there are even text message exchanges and other evidence that Depp referred to this abusive rage filled part of himself as a monster. And when confronted with what he did, he would apologize and say, you know, I'm going through a hard time, you know, this is my substance abuse disorder, et cetera. Also, in England, libel cases do go before a judge. There is no jury. Trial was in late July 2020 and that trial lasted for three weeks. And there was a lot of media attention about this trial, but there wasn't so much as the, you know, hashtag Amber Heard as a psychopath. There were some corners of the Internet that were paying more attention to this case, particularly in cells and people who want to detract from the me too movement. But I think there are also people who genuinely believe that Depp was a victim of abuse because that's also the claim that DApp made when in this defamation trial was that Amber Heard was actually the abuser and he was the victim. I certainly did not. Thomas, did you know that there was a Johnny Depp defamation suit in 2020? I missed that entirely. Not until this coverage I've heard about it since this, but no, not at the time. But contemporaneously, yeah, no, I think that's right. I just wanted I may be the least active person on pop culture, but you know, I did have this show into 2020. And it slipped beneath our radar. So I think at least from a sample size of three, that that's new information for me. That's not just new information to you. I have heard, I don't think I've seen anybody talk about it in the context of this case, which is kind of bewildering to me. I've seen a few other few journalists from box and then one from a guardian, but from the little tiktoks being made, the tweets that are being made, I have never seen somebody say, hey, by the way, basically the same case kind of played out in the UK. So here's what happened in that UK case, right? The judge found for the sun. In fact, the judge found for Q 12. Yes, the judge found for 12 out of 14 incidents presented by ng, which meant that they went in total because they said, okay, as their defense, they said, basically, here are 14 incidents where we think that we can prove as true that Johnny Depp abused Amber Heard. Wow. And the judge found for 12 out of 14. And justice nichol, you can look this up. He lays out all the evidence, his conclusions about that evidence and why he made them. It is a 126 page long judgment. And you were free to disagree with the judge's assessment, but I still find it very telling that a judge in an English defamation trial where the standard of evidence is much lower than it is in the U.S., actually found in the burden was on the sun, a tabloid newspaper that he did actually abuse heard and the judge found that it was not the other way around. So let me spit back just make sure that I'm understanding in an English court. So not binding on U.S. courts and different standards of admissibility. Nevertheless, when you're sort of thinking about the persuasive effect, an English tribunal found that the sun a tabloid newspaper by a preponderance of the evidence had proven 12 instances in court of Johnny Depp abusing Amber Heard sufficient to grant a defense verdict on a defamation case in which they had called him a wife beater. Yes. That is absolutely correct. Wow. And also one of the other reasons why this isn't coming up..

"Hello and welcome to opening arguments. This is episode 5 96. I'm Thomas. That's Andrew Torres, how are you doing, Andrew? I'm fantastic, Thomas, how are you? Doing great. I mean, lots of stuff going on in this episode. We've got poplar. We've got ace associate Morgan stringer. She's going to explain to Andrew who Amber Heard is. That's an important thing. Also kind of to me, I know she was aqua woman or something. I don't know. She's just in some movie. She talks to the fish, huh? Yeah. So she'll tell if Morgan will explain it out. Okay. I pretend that this was just about you, but it's also me, I don't really know who she is. I know Johnny Depp is, though. Me too. So many people have been clamoring for this segment. So let's get to it. Of course, the bob, blah, blah, blah, blah. Wow. You, sir, are a mouthful. And we're joined by ace associate Morgan stringer for Morgan's pop law. How are you doing, Morgan? I'm nervous, but great. Why are you nervous? Because of a subject matter that we are discussing today. This feels like a hornets nest. It is. It's a huge hornet's nest and I would not be shot if I got some death threats. I mean, and that goes either way, like either side you take on this, there's gonna be nothing but grief from the other side. So what beef up security, yeah, right? Yeah. This is the weirdest thing. You're gonna have to explain to Andrew, who Amber Heard is, first of all, that's not the weirdest thing that's actually totally not weird. But also, I don't know from the popular coverage, I'm sure even Andrew has seen some of it because it's everywhere. And I just don't know what to think because everything online slants toward Johnny Depp is this wronged man, Amber Heard is the hysterical woman, but from what I know about our society, I am very skeptical of that. Type of claim. What's going on here, Morgan? Yeah, obviously a huge content warning. We're going to be talking about abuse and sexual assault, that kind of thing. Also some substance abuse. So I just want to start off with that. But yeah, so first, I guess I will talk a little bit about Amber Heard. I mean, we all know who Johnny Depp is, I hope. Yes, I do know him. Yes. So it's going to be wild when I get accused of being an Amber Heard fan because the only thing I knew about her before I started researching for this was that she was an Aquaman and she dated Elon Musk, which if you date Amazon say yeah, huge negative points for me. Yeah, yeah, you're down in my book. And I love the Pirates of the Caribbean movies growing up and the other barriers movies, Johnny Depp's been in like oh my gosh. Edward scissors. I also feel really old. At least you named Edward scissorhands. That's an old movie, yeah. Yes, so we're all very familiar with that. But the thing is, I think that a big part of why this is cross into the mainstream is because people are such big fans of Johnny Depp because he's been in pop culture for so long. And I think that I really want people to just relax and chill. So before you send that death threat to me, please chill. And I need you to realize that you do not know Johnny Depp. I do not know Johnny Depp. And in that same vein, you do not know Amber Heard, and I do not know Amber Heard. So, but there has been this absolute lunacy that has taken over social media. And so I'm just asking everyone to relax about it and calm down and realize that Johnny Depp is not captain Jack sparrow. Like, I need you to I am begging. Please realize that. All right, great intro lesson. You do not have a relationship with your favorite Hollywood celebrity. What's going on? Yeah, listeners may have noticed on TikTok and on Twitter, you never spend hashtags of justice for Johnny Depp. People are selling t-shirts. It's gotten insane. And they're also has been this really disturbing trend on TikTok where people are taking Amber Heard's testimony from his case and actually reenacting it and exaggerated ways trying to be like, oh, look how inconsistent this is. You can do this. And even mocking her sexual assault testimony, I even saw a lawyer, you know, getting some ducks in. So yeah, it's been, it's been absolutely fantastic and not triggering or harmful for me to see all this content. I think I want to go through just some misconceptions. And so do like a classic debunking. Misconception number one is that Amber Heard, this is the first time she, you know, she's ever alleged abuse. So of course, Johnny Depp had to sewer, right? And this actually is not a domestic abuse trial, which is another misconception people have. This is a defamation trial. So just for some context, deaf and heard met on set when there were filming the rum diary in 2009, they start dating in 2012 and then in 2015, they get married May 2016, Amber Heard files for divorce and days later she files for a restraining order on the grounds of domestic abuse. And that restoring order is granted. Depp's lawyer immediately goes on the defensive by saying she is lying so that she can get a favorable financial settlement out of a divorce, right? So deaf and hard, they do reach an out of court settlement in August 2016 and this also involves an NDA. And both parties, they make a statement, they make a joint statement after a settlement, and they also make individual ones. So amber says there was never an intent of physical and emotional harm and Depp said neither party has made false accusations for financial gains. So this was just another celebrity divorce. August 2016. But then me too happens in 2017. Quick question that settlement and NDA encompassed the divorce, right? So there's a marital settlement agreement in that as well. Yes, but I don't know what all that entails. Right, 'cause that's all that's all been kept confidential. But in other words, this was all kind of subsumed into the divorce proceedings and both sides agreed. As is very, very common in celebrity cases to keep that confidential. Yes. And also basically no disparagement, that kind of thing, which will come to. So misconception number two is that this is the first time that a court has even ruled on this sort of content between them. So in April 2018, the sun, which is a British tabloid. Yeah, to put it mildly. Ran a headline entitled gone potty, how can J. K. Rowling.

"depp" Discussed on On The Media

"WNYC studios. I'm brandy zadrozny. I'm a reporter for NBC News, but this week I'm sitting in for Brooke gladstone. Johnny Depp is suing Amber Heard his ex-wife for defamation, and she's countersuing him for the same. And never has the term media circus been more apt. Johnny boy. There is a Johnny Depp supporter right there right behind the court right by that garbage can with alpacas. I kid you not alpacas that have a sign that says justice for Johnny. There are loads and loads of dirty laundry. I do not think the juice is worth the squeeze for either of these two because these details are horrific. It all started back in 2018, when heard wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post, in which she identifies herself as a survivor of domestic violence. That same year, Depp sued a British tabloid for defamation, over headlines that accused him of being an abuser, but he lost that case. Given that all of this stuff has been in the ether for years, you might be forgiven for thinking that there'd be less coverage about this latest trial. But you'd be wrong. The ratings for court TV, which is broadcasting every salacious moment of the trial, have more than doubled, pair the live visuals with Depp's massive online fan base, and you've got a case being watched billions of times over. In fact, the justice for Johnny Depp hashtag has upwards of 10 billion views on TikTok. I've never seen anything like it. EJ Dixon is a senior writer at Rolling Stone, where she covers Internet culture. I've seen it referred to as the meme ification of the Johnny Depp trial, and I've never really seen that process applied to a trial before, especially in the context of such extreme and horrifying allegations, the pro Johnny Depp sentiment just so far outweighs the pro Amber Heard sentiment, or even just the neutral sentiment around this trial that it's really not even worth comparing at a certain point. The social media phenomenon that exploded around this trial began with videos that joined Johnny Depp poking fun at Amber Heard's lawyer. So for example, Depp was described as pouring himself a quote mega pint of red wine. A mega pint. Yeah. I poured myself a large glass of wine. Right. Then that word became a meme. It even made it onto t-shirts, right? Sold by fans and Etsy shops. Almost immediately after it was uttered, there are thousands and thousands of t-shirts, mugs, stickers, incorporating the mega pint meme being sold on Etsy right now. A mega pint..

"You did. Did you know this? I don't know if I knew this. Remind me. It's been many years. So explain what your background is really quick for those that don't know us. On for the last ten years about, I've been doing locations, scouting, and working as a location assistant. So you kind of stay at the location that you generally found for the director and then you make sure everything runs smoothly. So you're working on? I covered the name. I'm not telling anyone. Come on. The hit show The Rookie, take the tape off. Let's see it. No, I'm not doing it. You have more electrical tape right there. You can just take this stuff from your giants. My new name is tape head and I like to keep tape on everything. Wait, why don't you want people to know it's The Rookie? I don't like to advertise, and I also was doing something with a film where I couldn't show the logo. So I just kept it like this though. I like it better. It just says. All right, so back to you. Yeah, I worked on a film and I want to say it was like 5 years ago and it was called mordecai starring Johnny Depp and Gwyneth Paltrow. The code names and nobody knew what it was was called mustache. Do you remember this? No, not really. I barely did. I was like, have I met Johnny Depp before? I said, oh yeah, I worked with him. So did you get to talk to him? A little bit. I thought he was pleasant and but I didn't, you know, in the location job and especially that show, you're like running around like crazy and a lot of times I was jumping ahead. So everybody would, they call it land, the whole crew would land and everyone would land and you stay there and make sure it's all, you know, you prepped it well and that everyone's settled in and then I would bounce to find that next thing and set it up and so I often didn't spend a lot of time on set. Did they call it bounce? Do you land and bounce? I bounced. Yeah, I just said that. It was mordecai, it came out in 2015. I did not do well. Oh really? Juggling angry Russians the British am I 5 and an international terrorist debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie mordecai. All right, well, you can get up from there. Okay. Yeah. So I remember he was very nice that we filmed it at one of my locations was a dirty hotel room and it was somewhere like up a magic mountain in half an hour from Hollywood in the sticks and it was a dirty hotel room and we had a scene there and he showed up four hours late and I was in the hallway in the executive producer was like this guy. She goes, I can't do this. I can't do this anymore. This is insane. And I heard her saying, how could we get, I don't know. Get out of it..
