After the six long weeks of a court trial, the Virginia jury declared the case in favor of Johnny Depp. The most awaited hearing has come to an end.
The trending #Abusehasnogender, #justiceforjohnnydepp, finally brought a win to the actor and all of them who stood in support of him.”The goal of bringing this case was to reveal the truth, regardless of the outcome,” said Johnny Depp, who had filed a domestic abuse case against his ex-wife Amber Heard.
However, Johnny produced an audio recording where Amber was heard distinctly saying, ”Tell the world Johnny, I.. Johnny Depp, a man.. I’m a victim too, of domestic violence. Let’s see how many believe you. Go on. ”
After the verdict came out, Johnny released an emotional statement on his Instagram account, “Six years ago, my life, the life of my children, the lives of those closest to me, were forever changed. All in the blink of an eye”. “And six years later, the jury gave me my life back. I am truly humbled,” he wrote.
The jury awarded Johnny $15 million in damages and $2 million to Heard due to some unavoidable facts she produced. Despite this, Johnny was supported all over the globe.
Therefore, it is a human tendency to believe what we see and what stereotypes we have. Truth is bitter and unexpected, as happened in the case of Johnny.
Hence, lastly, we can conclude that violence and abuses are not gendered biased; we need to understand the individual’s rights, freedom of speech, and right to live in the society with dignity.
