As one can expect with the existence of social media, actress Amber Heard has been facing plenty of backlash after she won the UK legal battle against her ex-husband, actor Johnny Depp. The legal battle initiated after Amber Heard alleged Johnny Depp was a domestic abuser. According to Depp, Heard was actually the abusive one, and sued The Sun – the publication she made such claims in – for defamation. While Amber Heard ended up winning the lawsuit, Johnny Depp’s fans aren’t too happy about it. And now Amber Heard is targeting these same fans on Twitter.
As you can see below, via Giant Freakin Robot, Amber Heard is targeting fans as well as Johnny Depp’s own lawyer on Twitter in a variety of ways – namely outright mocking them. It’s an interesting reaction, considering she already won the UK lawsuit, but apparently Amber Heard has simply had enough of the Internet backlash.
It’s worth mentioning that Adam Waldman is actually Johnny Depp’s lawyer, and that he’s been using social media as a way to call Amber Heard and her claims into question. This includes much of the majority of his Twitter feed, but it was the particular image posted above that caught Amber Heard’s attention. It seemed she had enough of Adam Waldman, and decided to respond to him and a variety of Johnny Depp fans on Twitter as a result. Obviously she’s gained quite a bit of confidence after winning the UK lawsuit, and she isn’t going to take any more time to back down from a fight. In this case, allegations that have yet to be proven true or false.
In the meantime, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard still have one other US defamation lawsuit to deal with. So for the time being, it looks like we’ll still be seeing plenty of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s back and forth. Whether or not any more Twitter users will be brought into the crossfire is yet to be seen.
