Overall, despite how Depp’s supporters allegedly crowdfunded the costs of unsealing the documents, the revelations on the pages do not paint a flattering picture of the man. Became a national hero To symbolically defeat lying, scheming women everywhere. It is not yet clear whether unsealed documents have a significant cultural impact; But at the very least, they seem to have persuaded some of Depp’s previous A-list supporters to reconsider their position, or at least hide their public display of support.

It went viral on Twitter on Thursday yarn shared a swelling list of celebrities who initially “liked” and appeared to dislike Depp’s celebratory Instagram post, shared after he won his defamation lawsuit in May. Jezebel has confirmed that the Instagram accounts of these celebrities no longer appear to have “liked” the post as of Friday afternoon.

And before that, stars like Courtney Love and Kate Moss shared very publicly supportive stories or messages about how Depp didn’t abuse them. Actively kind to them-This proves that he didn’t hurt Heard, because everyone knows domestic abusers have abused every woman they’ve ever encountered. Famous people like Depp’s friends Paul Bettany—who texted Depp about “burning amber” and “fucking her corpse” — and Imaginary animals Director David Yates Depp has also been called a stand-up guy and said they’ve never seen him hit a woman, so, of course, that hasn’t happened.

Two years after Depp publicly accused Depp of abuse, she wrote a 2018 op-ed in which she sued Heard for defamation for identifying as a victim of domestic violence. Even before the aforementioned court documents were unsealed, Heard presented detailed evidence of the abuse she says Depp inflicted on her during their relationship, from damaging audio and texts to eyewitness accounts of alleged violence. his Still, a jury ruled by That Heard had defamed her ex-husband and owed him $15 million.

There’s little excuse for anyone—including high-profile celebrities who publicly market themselves as feminists and profit from this marketing—to realize all the bullshit about testing just now. From a more cynical perspective, maybe they haven’t changed their minds, but realize the tide is turning and their names shouldn’t be attached to his post?

Learning and growth is important. But how many women have to be publicly retromatized and constantly ridiculed by millions before finally enough is enough?
