Johnny Depp was awarded $15 million in damages from his lawsuit against Amber Heard and has gone on to becoming more ‘public’ again, including debuting on TikTok.
- Amber Heard has responded to Johnny Depp’s debut TikTok in which he said he plans to “move forward.”
- As Johnny Depp says he is moving on, women’s rights are going backwards. Heard’s representative said.
- Depp joined TikTok on Monday, nearly a week after winning his defamation lawsuit against Heard.
Amber Heard criticized Johnny Depp’s first TikTok post. In the video, Depp said “we will all move forward together.” This was nearly a week after he won his defamation lawsuit against her.
“As Johnny Depp says he’s ‘moving forward,’ women’s rights are moving backward,” a spokesperson for Heard told E! News. “The verdict’s message to victims of domestic violence is…be afraid to stand up and speak out.”
Depp joined TikTok on Monday and quickly gained millions of followers without even posting his first video.
On Tuesday, he thanked his “treasured, loyal, and unwavering” supporters in his first-ever TikTok, noting that “we did the right thing together, all because you cared.” The video has received 10 million views as of press time.
@johnnydeppTo all of my most treasured, loyal and unwavering supporters. We’ve been everywhere together, we have seen everything together. We have walked the same road together. We did the right thing together, all because you cared. And now, we will all move forward together. You are, as always, my employers and once again I am whittled down to no way to say thank you, other than just by saying thank you. So, thank you. My love & respect, JD
Last Tuesday, jurors found both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard liable for defamation against each other. The jury awarded more financial damages to Depp.
The jury found that Heard had defamed Depp when she described herself as a victim of domestic violence in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed. The jury also found that Heard’s statements were false and made with “actual malice” against her ex-husband.
Depp was found liable for defamation when one of his attorneys claimed Heard’s allegations of sexual abuse were a “hoax.” The jury awarded Heard $2 million in compensatory damages, but no punitive damages.
In a statement shared on Twitter last Wednesday, Heard said that she was “sad” and “heartbroken” over the verdict. Heard’s team has also said that she plans to appeal the verdict.
