Jason Momoa’s social media activity following the Depp v Heard defamation verdict is raising some eyebrows.
It was announced by the jury on Wednesday that Depp had won the case against Heard which started over her 2018 Washington Post op-ed where she claimed to be a victim of domestic abuse.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actor won $15 million in total, $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. However, Judge Penney Azcarate reduced the punitive damages to meet the state’s statutory cap of $350,000.
After the spokesperson for the jury announced that Heard’s defamation claims against Depp were not proven, they did then award Heard $2 million in compensatory damages for one of her three claims against the actor.
Celebs have been reacting to the news, among them is Heard’s co-star Jason Momoa, who appeared to “like” both Depp and Heard’s statements following the verdict.
Heard’s statement 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.”
“It sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke up could be publicly shamed and humiliated. It sets back the idea that violence against women should be taken seriously.”
