Despite rumors, Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, will ultimately not testify in Johnny Depp’s defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard (with whom Musk had a brief fling).
We understand that you want to stay out of this matter that has become a delusional media circus. Elon Musk is also the one who wants to lift the banishment of Donald Trump on Twitter, if he manages to buy the social network, where Amber Heard is burned daily like a witch at the stake.
After a week of respite, especially for those who can no longer bear this harrowing saga, the trial resumed on Monday and the show even more beautiful. Even if Amber Heard had all the mistakes, that doesn’t fully explain the outpouring of pure hatred against her. Rarely have I seen such an accusation, which goes far beyond banal voyeurism. We take sides as if it were the trial of the century and clearly in favor of Depp. The petition to remove Amber Heard from the sequel aquaman collected millions of signatures.
I have the impression that there is in this a revenge, even a revenge, towards the #metoo movement. Amber Heard will become an example that women should not take their word for it when reporting their abusers, as there may be “innocent” victims like Johnny Depp. It doesn’t matter if the audio and video recordings showed an inglorious image of the actor.
This lawsuit, requested by Depp in a state where they are broadcast in their entirety, is being dissected every second on TikTok, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook, and it is turning against Amber Heard.
All the clichés of the crazy and hysterical blonde (mostly lying) are brought back to life; mind you, they had never really left. I’ve read even harsher things, even downright obscene comments. We let go, let’s say.
For women who have actually suffered violence, for those who have reported it or are thinking of doing so, this trial is torture.
Millions of Internet users scrutinize the slightest movement of the actress’s eyelashes, analyze the quality of her bruises in the photos, her emotions, her absence of real tears when she cries. She had never seen so many certified nonverbal language specialists. She does comedy, they say, and badly. But isn’t Johnny Depp also a comedian?
Regardless, the tone is with #JusticeforJohnnyDepp, who successfully went from pirate of the Caribbean to algorithm hacker. His groupies applaud him in court. Men and women thank you for showing the true face of a profiteer riding a feminist wave.
Social media has been in Depp’s favor from the start, and Amber Heard seems to be putting on that lying woman show that many enjoy, regardless of the serious accusations of violence being heard on the stand.
It is documented that women and minorities are particularly targeted by hate speech on social media. But this is the price to pay, I imagine, for the freedom of expression so dear to Elon Musk, who is willing to pay dearly to buy back Twitter, where he wants to bring Donald Trump back.
This president who took advantage of Twitter to encourage a coup, also adored by Christian fundamentalists, since he fulfilled the divine mission of appointing the adequate number of conservative judges in the Supreme Court to be able to nullify the right to abortion of women in the United States Joined.
Meanwhile, the Heard-Depp affair feeds the worst in people, who have already decided which way the verdict should go. And no matter what anyone thinks of this case, it looks like a bonfire online. Johnny Depp can laugh at his beard, he knows that he has won the battle for public opinion.
Whether I win or lose this case, Amber Heard is destroyed. And some of the #MeToo movement will go down with her, I fear, as she crumbles on the sidelines.
