Amber Heard’s Domestic Abuse Claims Branded A Hoax In Court


This whole Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial has been going on for what seems like months now, and Ms Heard’s domestic abuse claims against Depp were branded a “hoax” in court.

This was said by Johnny Depp’s lawyer, Adam Waldman during his deposition.

Waldman was speaking to the defence via video link.

You can watch a breakdown of his deposition over on Popcorned Planet.

Amber Heard’s lawyer, Mr Rottenborn asked Waldman whether he spoke to “other social media users” about what happened between Mr Depp and Ms Heard.

It was a very open-ended question, and Mr Waldman took the opportunity to reveal to who he gave information to.

Waldman said that he gave information to “Internet journalists”.

He went on to reveal that he spoke to the likes of That Umbrella Guy, That Brian Fella and LauraBockov.

These three “Internet journalists” (I like that term) have been instrumental in getting the Justice For Johnny Depp movement going online.

Oddly enough, Heard’s lawyer, Mr Rottenborn, then asked Mr Waldman the following question: “Have you communicated to those individuals listed evidence that you believe suggests that Ms Heard’s allegations are hoaxes?”

This is such a strange thing for the defence to do because it puts the idea into the jury members’ heads that Amber Heard’s domestic abuse claims could, in fact, be hoaxes.

Mr  Waldman then answered, saying: “I would say I communicate with the Internet journalists – because we’ve put them in a category calling them that, I’ve done that – exactly the same way I would communicate with mainstream media. If they have questions about evidence or facts, I will inform them.”

This was a very interesting and successful strategy from Depp’s team because it helped them to get the court on public opinion on Depp’s side.

Giving evidence and information to people like That Umbrella Guy is really important.

This is due to the fact that they can dedicate most of their time to making content around the whole Amber Heard vs Johnny Depp situation.

Mainstream media outlets cannot dedicate so much time to this story, and they probably don’t want to.

It wouldn’t be in their best interests since they can be seen as being opposed to actual victims of domestic abuse.

It all helps to expose Amber Heard and let normal people who use the Internet – also known as “social media users” – know what really happened between Depp and Heard.

What I will say is that I’m pretty sure Amber Heard’s team was and is doing exactly the same thing.

They just haven’t been as successful because they’ve been spending most of their time squashing news stories that depict Amber in a negative light.

There are a lot of those sorts of news stories.

What do you make of this news?

    As far as I know, Amber was wrong in this case. It has become a perception of people that men are always wrong but it is not so. Somewhere women are also wrong I am also a woman and I firmly believe that when women are equal to men in everything So why can not Amber be wrong in this case?

Have your say...
