From Mediaite, "BREAKING: Jury Finds Amber Heard Defamed Johnny Depp With Op-Ed":
The jury has reached a verdict in the blockbuster defamation trial between actors and ex-spouses Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
Depp had sued Heard for $50 million in connection with the op-ed, and the jury awarded him $15 million total.As I reported previously, Heard's op-ed was ghostwritten by ACLU staffer Robin Shulman after Heard pledged to donate $3.5 million to the liberal activist group.
The aim was to capitalize on the #MeToo movement to both smear Depp and promote Heard's new movie.
It's now cost Heard her reputation and some $13 million.
UPDATE: Heard rushed out this likely prewritten, ghostwritten statement painting herself and all women as the victim:
"The disappointment I feel today is beyond words," Heard's statement said. "I’m heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence, and sway of my ex-husband. I'm even more disappointed with what this verdict means for other women. It is a setback. It sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated. It sets back the idea that violence against women is to be taken seriously."
"I believe Johnny's attorneys succeeded in getting the jury to overlook the key issue of Freedom of Speech and ignore evidence that was so conclusive that we won in the UK. I'm sad I lost this case. But I am sadder still that I seem to have lost a right I thought I had as an American — to speak freely and openly."
Depp released the following statement through his spokesperson after the verdict came out:
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.Follow InformationLiberation on Twitter, Facebook, Gab, Minds and Telegram.
