Well, I’m glad that the jury saw right through Amber’s lies. They aren’t stupid. They made the right decision on siding with Johnny. It wasn’t a surprise and I knew that Johnny would get it. Johnny only awarded $15 million but Johnny did what he had to do to prove that Amber defamed him in that op-ed article. Johnny’s job is done, he can now move on with his life.
As far as Amber goes, she was awarded a little something in her countersuit but she only won in a very small thing. It was over something like Depp lawyer accusing her of faking the apartment destruction to make it worse for police? Anyway, that wasn’t a big deal. At least the jury didn’t award her anything that he was the abuser, she could never prove that and the jury saw right through it.
Yeah, I did watch the verdict reading live on the internet and it was exciting stuff. When I saw Heard’s lawyers and Depp’s lawyers sitting there before the verdict reading the reaction between both of them were interesting. Depp’s lawyers were smiling and laughing so you can tell that they already know that Depp got it while Heard’s team didn’t look like they were in a good mood.
When the judge was getting ready to get the verdict read, the judge called for recess to calm everybody down ’cause she was nervous that things were about to get crazy? Another sign of Johnny winning.
When the verdict finally being read, that part was exciting.
No reaction from Amber though. She just stood there with her head down and eyes closed the whole time. No angry outbursts or crying of any kind.
Right after it’s all over, both Amber and Johnny sent statements on social media. Amber crying “Freedom of speech” like usual and Johnny saying he’s “happy” and how he gets to move on.
Some may ask why wasn’t Johnny there? Simply put, he didn’t need to be. He could have been in court during the verdict reading if he wanted but he didn’t care for the attention. On top of that, I think he knew he would win anyways so that’s another reason he wasn’t there. Think about it, right?
In the court room today, there were police officers standing everywhere in case things got crazy and out of hand but surprisingly everybody behaved and was pretty calm.
On the outside though, lots of Johnny fans were outside waiting for Johnny’s lawyers to come out so they can cheer them on. I’m sure the fans wanted to cheer for Johnny himself but he wasn’t there so they cheered on his lawyers instead. Of course, Camille and Ben Chew got the rock star treatment on their way out.
Glad it’s all over finally and Amber really needs to move on with her own life and leave the man alone. She thought she could bring him down and humiliate him but it all backfired on her. She won’t give up, though. She could try appealing and I can see her cashing in on all of this by writing a book… make a slew of talk show appearances. Amber should have no career anymore. She should be blacklisted but Hollywood won’t do anything to her.
It’s pretty likely that Depp will never work for Disney ever again, though… unless they give him an apology and re-instate his contract? They probably won’t, though. I know how “leftist” Hollywood is. They’re all about supporting “women”.
Now I want to watch a Johnny Depp movie this weekend. I think I have “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” on DVD somewhere, a Criterion collection DVD, I’ll have to find it. I’m also planning on buying the Hollywood Vampires albums.
Congrats Johnny. A big victory for the truth and a victory for men who are also victims of domestic violence by women.
A Mega Pint for Johnny!
