Johnny Depp has won the defamation trial against Amber Heard.
Fans are now demanding that Disney and Warner Bros. issue a public apology after his victory. See below:
Disney and Warner Bros owe Johnny Depp the biggest apology and they should already be grovelling at his feet.
Amber Heard has cost him roles in 2 of the biggest franchises in cinema. She's an absolutely horrible human being and hopefully we never see her ever again #DeppVsHeard

So does Disney apologize to Johnny Depp now or what?

I hope Warner Bros and Disney come out and admit they were wrong, they should never have turned their back on Depp asking him to resign. Now do the right thing and remove Amber from Aquaman 2 @warnerbros

According to BBC News, the actor was on his way out in Newcastle when the above photo was taken.
The 58-year-old has been playing with Jeff Beck in England, so did not attend the verdict announcement Fairfax, Virginia.
The televised trial which has gripped the world and has arguably been one of the biggest celebrity stories in years has come to a close.
Depp launched a defamation lawsuit for $50 million against Heard in 2019, after the Aquaman star described herself as a victim of domestic abuse in a 2018 article she penned in The Washington Post.
Heard then countersued for $100 million as she claimed Depp’s legal team started a “smear campaign” against her.
The trial started Monday 11 April in Fairfax, Virginia.
The couple first met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2009 and began what would end up being a tumultuous relationship. Depp starred as Paul Kemp in the film, based off the Hunter S. Thompson novel – Depp’s friend and idol. Heard played Chenault – who in the film, was engaged to another man when she met Kemp.
Ironically, much like their characters, Heard was also in a relationship with photographer/painter Tasya van Ree from 2008-2012, when she met Depp.
After weeks of testimonies in court, evidence and cross-examination we finally have our answer.
Heard recently testified in court she believed she was labeled a ‘liar’ as Depp has a larger following and was a bigger celebrity.
