Johnny Depp Takes The Stand Against Amber Heard
Although she did not mention Depp by name, he claims that he has lost movie roles due to the “clear implication” that he was the “Aquaman” actress’ abuser.
Deadline obtained court testimony in which Depp claimed “my goal is the truth” and said that he needed to take a stand against Heard’s “diabolical” abuse.
He claimed that her allegations against him were “lies built upon lies” and insisted he was “doing the right thing” by pursuing the case.
Ireland feels the exact same way about the actor.
Ireland Defends Johnny Depp!
On Thursday, April 21, she shared a tweet which read, “Johnny Depp’s reaction to the court finally getting to hear the audio tape in which Amber Heard admits to abusing him. #JusticeforJohnnyDepp.”
She wrote on top of the tweet, “The thing is, I know women who are exactly like this. They are manipulative and cold and they use their very womanhood to play victim and turn the world against the man because we live in a society where it’s cool to say men are all the worst and blah blah f**kity blah.”
Ireland Goes OFF On Amber Heard
Ireland’s message continued, “Men can experience abuse too and this absolute disaster of a human being Amber Heard is a terrible person and I hope Johnny gets his reputation and his life back. And I hope he’s in like 5 ‘Pirates’ movies.”
Depp continued to say in his court testimony, “It was my responsibility to not only clear my name … I wanted to clear my children of this horrid thing they had to read about their father, that was untrue.”

Depp said “it was a complete shock” to hear Heard’s allegations against him. “It just didn’t need to go in that direction, as nothing of the kind ever happened,” Depp testified. “There were arguments, and things of that nature, but never did myself reach the point of striking Ms. Heard in any way, nor have I struck anyone in my life.”
As reported by the New York Post, Depp claimed that he was a victim of “physical abuse” by his mother, Betty Sue Palmer, who would hit him, throw things at him, and torment him with “psychological abuse,” which he called “almost worse” than the physical abuse.
Depp said “there was quite a lot of name-calling” growing up, and admitted to wondering why his father did not leave his mother.
“He is a good man,” Depp said of his father, John Christopher Depp. “He apologized to me for having gone through the whipping – the belt.”
The actor clarified, “My father is not an abusive man. At the same time, my father was to some degree at the mercy of Betty Sue.”
