    Johnny Depp's Defamation Suit

    I'm seeing a lot of people defending Johnny Depp and maybe I'm missing something, but I'm not seeing a lot to defend.

    The claim is that Amber Heard's article in 2018, was defaming with malicious intent, costing Depp hundreds of millions of dollars in prospective movie deals.

    Here's Heard's article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opini...c36_story.html

    Depp has already sued a UK paper, the Sun, for libel and lost. In the Sun's article and headline, they directly call Depp a "wife beater", though I cant seem to track that original article down. If someone finds it, I can add it to this post. https://www.theguardian.com/film/202...leged-assaults

    In the UK trial for libel, the judge found: Of the 14 alleged assaults heard in open court – all of which have been denied by Depp – he found that 12 of them were proved on the balance of probability.

    Now he's in US court, suing for defamation, which has a higher burden of proof than a libel suit. The article that Heard wrote, doesn't mention Depp by name, so how can he expect to win a defamation case, if he can't win a libel case?

    This feels like a circus show... I'm curious to hear what you guys think.

    Let's look at the test results. You are a horrible person. It says right here, you're a horrible person. We weren't even testing that. Don't let the horrible person thing get you down though. Science justified your parents choice to abandon you.

    Just GamerGaters looking for a cause to latch onto some 7 years later.


    Johhny Depp fans are as bad as JK Rowling fans these days.

    I wonder if you buy them at the same botnet service?

    Proud JK Rowling fan <3

    It has a ton of supporters both men and women but its kinda weird given Johnny Depp's past history. I am staying away from the entire scandal tho and waiting for the results when it comes

    Its kind of uncomfortable to accuse someone of lying of their abuse without like rock solid evidence.

    Ive been following some of the case on youtube at the Law&Crime Network. I cant vouch for this channel as a good channel, but theyre posting some good, raw coverage without any commentary. The comments though are thick with Depp supporters for as long as you care to scroll through them. I get the feeling that bots might be involved too. Idk...

    Take this video for instance:

    Paints Depp really badly, but supporters in the comment section is thick. Depp might even say thicker than Amber..

    But this isnt a criminal case. Civil cases require less burden of proof. Youre basically waiting for evidence that no one has to present in order to win.

    Can't we just agree that they're both shitty people and move on from celebrity gossip?

    I think its more she clearly abused him, and admitted to hitting him on tape. Even taunted him to tell the world and see who believes him. Then played the victim later. He was punished for that while Heard went on to make Aquaman 2. I don't think Depp will win the defamation case but I think the whole point is to get his story out and save his career.

    So you think the UK court got it wrong?

    So not only did the UK court fail, their appeals court failed too? Interesting take. Why do you think the UK courts failed?

    I mean, I've heard the tapes, I've seen the messages, Heard's abusiveness is pretty obvious.

    They're both awful people, tbh. Though I generally just try to stay away from this whole thing. Most of the defending comments I tend to see are when I open to FB to clear notifications and see all the women defending Depp lol

    Isnt he accusing him of defamation? He should prove that he never abused him and that she knowingly lied

    Youre using a lot of pronouns without settling what theyre referring to and its confusing. He (Depp) is suing her (Heard) for defamation. Idk who the other he, or him is..

    so, in that case you have to decide which one was the more abusive one, and in this case, the more malicious one was pretty clearly Heard. especially when it came to knowingly trying to tank Depp's career, Depp seems pretty content to just not have anything to do with her.

    Are you assuming she "knowingly tried to tank Depp's career", or do you have some evidence that would slam dunk this case that no one else seems to have?
