Johnny Depp’s online support base is growing as more people are siding with the actor, singer, and musician regarding alleged domestic violence involving his ex-wife Amber Heard. Preparing for a new album with “Hollywood Vampires” social media has shown a shift in the conversation surrounding Depp since the Blast released a new photo of Johnny with a black eye.
Depp is currently suing Amber Heard for $50 million in a defamation lawsuit and the photo shown below is part of the suit, according to the Blast.
According to court documents, Johnny Depp is suing Amber Heard over an article she penned for the Washington Post where she took the viewpoint of a domestic abuse survivor. Depp says that she isn’t a victim of domestic abuse, therefore the article is defamation.
As more people follow the case and are browsing through court documents, they are responding with support for Depp and some are attacking Heard online.
Amber Heard continues to state she is a domestic abuse victim who is fighting the good fight.
