It’s been a long six weeks, but the Johnny Depp-Amber Hard Defamation Trial is finally over.
The jury is currently negotiating and a verdict is expected before the end of this week.
We are sure that both sides are grateful that the bitter battle of the court is over, but the truth remains that only one side will win.
Of course, no matter what the jury decides, the events of the last six weeks will forever change the lives of key players, and that could be doubly true in the case of Hard.
We’ve talked before about why Horde is so hated on the Internet.
This is partly the result of a recording that Hard admitted to hitting Depp during their relationship, but social media commentators have not been nearly as rigorous in evaluating the evidence against Johnny.
No matter what outcome you are personally rooting for, there is no denying that most of the hate speech has nothing to do with the arguments presented in court, and has everything to do with the prejudices that the haters held long before the trial began.
Some members of the anti-hard contingent are just old school misogynists, others seem to have sided with Tim Depp for more subtle reasons.
However, the threat to Amber’s safety is real, and it implies that she has taken steps to protect herself and her young daughter.
But now, a controversial friend of the actress’ says the media is ruining the little protection she enjoys by going over the coverage of her new home.
Scottish journalist Eve Barlow first gained international fame last year when her controversial anti-Palestinian views made her an overnight celebrity on Twitter – for all the wrong reasons.
Nowadays, the number one defender of the Barlow Heard.
It has been rumored that the women are dating, but neither side has confirmed the reports.
Amber bought a home in Southern California in 2019 (unlike some other outlets, we’ll just say this about its location).
He hasn’t been home since this year, and Barlow says it’s already unsafe for him to be there.
“It’s not an ‘escape home’ if the mainstream media posts it all over the internet,” Barlow tweeted Tuesday. “FFS [for f—‘s sake]”
“I don’t care who you believe in or who you don’t believe in. A person is the victim of public humiliation, constant death threats and harassment, and it’s – once again – the fault of the public,” Barlow wrote separately. Posted on Tuesday.
“How do you support ridicule, violence + the inhumanity of a woman you don’t know. Leave Amber alone,” she continued.
The security plea came as a seven-person jury in Fairfax, thinking about the fate of Virginia Amber.
Depp Attorney Camille Vasquez said in her concluding argument, “When you are doing it intentionally, ask yourself why Mr. Depp would put himself through this, publishing every embarrassing account of his life on national television.”
“If she’s guilty of anything, Miss Hard accuses her of anything, we ask you, we ask you to give a verdict. [for] Mr Depp, “Vasquez told the jury.
“We’re asking you to set the record straight. He’s not the abuser he’s described, and he’s not the heroic living person he’s portrayed.”
“We’re going to hold you accountable in the end,” Hard’s lawyer, Ellen Bradhoft, countered.
“He has not accepted responsibility for anything in his life.”
Depp Hard is suing for $ 50 million, alleging that he irreparably damaged his career when he identified himself as a victim of domestic violence.
Hard has filed a counter-suit for 100 million.
The jury will not only decide the winner, but also determine the amount of loss.
