Johnny Depp’s win in his defamation trial against Amber Heard has the internet reeling

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor was awarded $15 million in damages after the jury found that his ex-wife had defamed him in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed. In it, she claimed to be a “public figure representing domestic abuse.”

The jury also awarded Amber Heard with $2 million in compensatory damages, but $0 in punitive damages.

Both actors have released statements on their social media accounts with Johnny Depp thanking his fans who supported him, and Amber expressing her disappointment in the verdict.

Speaking outside the Fairfax, Virginia court, Depp’s lawyers Cammile Vasquez and Ben Chew addressed the crowd following their win.

She said in a statement: “Today’s verdict confirms what we have said from the beginning, that the claims against Johnny Depp are defamatory and unsupported by any evidence.

“We are grateful, so grateful, to the jury for their careful deliberation, to the judge and the court staff who have devoted an enormous amount of time and resources towards this case.”

On Twitter, fans heaped praise on the dynamite duo, who have achieved celebrity status following their courtroom showdowns with Johnny Depp’s ex-wife.

Newsweek reports that bystanders witnessed Amber Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoft leave the courtroom in tears.
