Amber Heard Breaks Silence On Johnny Depp's First TikTok

Amber Heard Breaks Silence On Johnny Depp's First TikTok

Depp posted his first TikTok this week.

Amber Heard has broken her silence after Johnny Depp posted his first ever TikTok video this week.

You can watch it below:

The video included a montage of his recent performances with Jeff Beck, as well as clips of crowds of fans, and alongside it, Johnny wrote: "To all of my most treasured, loyal and unwavering supporters. We’ve been everywhere together, we have seen everything together.

"We have walked the same road together. We did the right thing together, all because you cared. And now, we will all move forward together.

"You are, as always, my employers and once again I am whittled down to no way to say thank you, other than just by saying thank you. So, thank you. My love & respect, JD."

Following the post, the actor's ex-wife, Amber Heard, broke her silence, explaining 'women's rights are moving backwards'.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Heard, 36, said: "As Johnny Depp says he's 'moving forward,' women's rights are moving backward. The verdict's message to victims of domestic violence is ... be afraid to stand up and speak out."

Amber Heard responded to the TikTok.

Following the verdict of her and Depp's defamation case last Wednesday (1 June), Heard released a statement on social media.

It read: "The disappointment I feel today is beyond words. 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."

The trial went on for six weeks.

The jury found that Heard did defame Depp on all three counts in her op-ed for the Washington Post back in 2018.

Depp has been awarded $15 million in damages - $10m in compensatory damages and $5m in punitive damages.

While the jury ruled that Heard's defamation claims against Depp were not fully proven, they did however award $2 million in compensatory damages to Heard.
