Amber Heard is expressing her solidarity with those who are attempting to make a change to the “flawed” and “broken” system. Breaking her silence on the protests taking place all over the county, the 34-year-old revealed she’s taking a stance and on the side of those pushing against police brutality. The “Aquaman” actress took to her social media ahead of the weekend to declared her views on George Floyd‘s death and countless others who have died at the hands of police officers.
Amber Heard posted a picture, showing herself wearing a face mask and without makeup standing alongside a graffitied wall with an armed police officer behind her on Friday, June 5. Holding her hand over her mouth, Johnny Depp‘s ex-wife captioned the powerful snap by writing, “Standing in solidarity with those intent on changing a terribly flawed and broken system and for those who are demanding justice in support of countless black and brown lives lost to it.”

Making sure her views on the issues were crystal clear, Amber Heard added, “I stand with all who are participating in this historic moment.” In less than an hour, the star’s post has already collected over 32k likes and the love and support keep coming. The words she used about a “broken” and “flawed” system is interesting, considering she’s in the middle of a defamation battle with her “Pirates of The Caribbean” ex. Amber Heard has accused Johnny Depp of domestic violence but several A-listers have come to his defense.
Stars like Winona Ryder and Penelope Cruz have publically supported the actor against her allegations. Johnny Depp recently issued subpoenas in order to collect any documents and communication Amber Heard may have had with the ACLU and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles regarding donations that were made following the couple’s divorce. As part of their divorce settlement in 2016, Amber Heard agreed she would get $7 million from the actor as an equalization payment and the money would be donated to charity.
But Johnny Depp and the “flawed” system aren’t the only things the actress is battling. As The Blast reported, Amber Heard’s mother, Paige, passed away last month. She revealed the news to fans on social media, stating she was “heartbroken and devastated beyond belief.” She has since returned to Instagram weeks later, showing she was spending some much needed time with her sister and her nephew following her mom’s heartbreaking death. Amber Heard has leaned on her fans for support and now it’s time to give back to those who need their voices heard.
