Obviously, Depp is uber famous for being an actor, musician and a devilishly handsome human, so, it makes sense why everyone flocked to his TikTok account and hit the “follow” button.

It appears the defamed actor joined the platform on Tuesday, June 7.

He published a 30-second video to his account which featured footage of him in a suit going to the courthouse, passing by droves of fans with signs that read, “I love U and your Lawyer Johnny,” waving to the crowd, as well as him rocking out onstage with his guitar.

Performing music live is something he’s been doing since before his defamation trial win.

As you may recall, we reported the actor/musician jetted off to Europe before the trial came to a close. He was spotted hamming it up with fans, rocking out with his band and thoroughly enjoying himself.

The video has over one-million plays, 14.2k shares, 616k likes and 59k comments.

One fan commented, “WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU ??❤️❤️❤️.”

“The legend is back!!! ?❤️,” another fan replied.

This fan took the time to thank Johnny for speaking up about his domestic abuse, “Johnny you spoke for Men all over the world and hopefully we can become more open about private things thank you brother.”

Others expressed their desire to see him in the next ‘Pirates’ movie, which he was famously let go from due to Amber Heard’s 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which she claimed to be a victim of domestic abuse and sexual assault.

Earlier this month, a jury found Heard guilty of defaming the actor and was ordered to pay him $15 million. Depp was awarded $10 million in “compensatory” damages and $5 million for “punitive damages.”

Depp and his legal team were also found guilty of defaming heard, so he owes her $2 million in “punitive” damages.

In the state of Virginia, where the trial was held, they put a cap on punitive damages and the judge lowered the $5 million to $350k.

So basically, when everything is said and done, the “Aquaman” actress will owe her ex-husband $8.5 million in damages.

Following the massive court room victory, both Heard and Depp released statements.

Depp wrote, “Six years ago, my life, the life of my children, the lives of those closest to me, and also, the lives of the people, who for many, many years have supported and believed in me were forever changed. All in the blink of an eye. False, very serious and criminal allegations were levied at me via the media, which triggered an endless barrage of hateful content, although no charges were brought against me.”

The actor explained how her comments became international news in a nanosecond.

“It had already traveled around the world twice within a nanosecond and it had a seismic impact on my life and my career. And six years later, the jury gave me my life back. I am truly humbled. My decision to pursue this cause, knowing very well the height of the legal hurdles that I would be facing and the inevitable, worldwide spectacle into my life, was only made after considerable thought,” he shared. “From the very beginning, the goal of bringing this case was to reveal the truth, regardless of the outcome. Speaking the truth was something that I owed to my children and to all those who have remained steadfast in their support of me. I feel at peace knowing I have finally accomplished that.”

Heard’s message was not so uplifting and positive. The actress is looking to file an appeal.
