Johnny Depp was all grins as he exited an English restaurant after winning his slander action against Amber Heard. Finally, #JusticeForJohnny was a huge success.
Damages in the amount of USD 15 million have been granted to Johnny Depp by the jury. As soon as the decision was announced, Depp’s fans from all over the world were seen expressing their joy on various social media platforms. Followers are all appreciating Johnny’s legal team and voicing their thanks to the two major attorneys representing Johnny, Camille Vasquez, and Ben Chew. The supporters are holding a massive cheering competition for each and every member of the jury who was engaged in the case.
Johnny posted on his Instagram account, “Six years ago, my life, the life of my children, the lives of those closest to me, and also, the lives of the people who for many, many years have supported and believed in me were forever changed. All in the blink of an eye.”
“False, very serious and criminal allegations were levied at me via the media, which triggered an endless barrage of hateful content, although no charges were ever brought against me. It had already travelled around the world twice within a nanosecond and it had a seismic impact on my life and my career. And six years later, the jury gave me my life back. I am truly humbled,” Johnny wrote.
“My decision to pursue this case, knowing very well the height of the legal hurdles that I would be facing and the inevitable worldwide spectacle into my life was only made after considerable thought. From the very beginning, the goal of bringing this case was to reveal the truth, regardless of the outcome. Speaking the truth was something that I owed to my children and to all those who have remained steadfast in their support of me. I feel at peace knowing I have finally accomplished that,” Johnny said.
Johnny added, “I am, and have been, overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and the colossal support and kindness from around the world. I hope that my quest to have the truth be told will have helped others, men or women, who have found themselves in my situation, and that those supporting them never give up. I also hope that the position will now return to innocent until proven guilty, both within the courts and in the media. I wish to acknowledge the noble work of the Judge, the jurors, the court staff and the Sheriffs who have sacrificed their own time to get to this point, and to my diligent and unwavering legal team who did an extraordinary job in helping me to share the truth.”
Johnny Depp finished the post by writing. “Veritas numquam perit. Truth never perishes,”.
