#JusticeForJohnnyDepp Trends After Amber Heard Admits To Domestic Violence In SHOCKING Audio Tape

New hashtag in support of Johnny Depp begins trending after Amber Heard admits to domestic violence against him.

Fans are speaking out after a shocking audio recording between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard with evidence of the pair’s alleged domestic violence disputes was made public this week.

The tape in question is of a conversation between the pair when they were still married back in 2015, a sort of couples therapy session recorded “consensually” on the 33-year-old actress’ phone and acquired by thanks to “a well-placed source.”

In the clip, Heard admits to hitting the Rum Diaries star and throwing pots and pans during a previous physical altercation. This recently released admission comes after years of back-and-forth accusations between the two, beginning with Amber’s claim her husband threw a phone at her face as part of her 2016 divorce filing. She would go on to detail more of her experience in an op-ed in the Washington Post two years later describing herself as the victim.

Johnny responded with a defamation suit, claiming her abuse accusations were an “elaborate hoax” and calling her the “perpetrator” of the abuse and not the victim. Now, fans seem pretty pissed with Amber for not owning up to her part in what reportedly transpired during her relationship with Depp. On Saturday, the hashtag #JusticeForJohnnyDepp began trending on Twitter as users aired their grievances and offered support to the 56-year-old movie star:

Many critics online argued this story serves as another reason why society should collectively challenge the double-standards placed on male victims of assault:

“When a man abuses a woman, his disgusting, nasty, repugnant ass needs to be in jail and held accountable. When a woman abuses a man, her disgusting, nasty, repugnant ass needs to be in jail and held accountable. Victims deserves justice.#JusticeForJohnnyDepp”

“If you think feminism gives women a free pass to abuse, because paTRiarCHy. You can unfollow me right now. I’m not going to accept abuse apologists from any side. #JusticeForJohnnyDepp”

“supporting abusers is not what feminism is and it never will be #JusticeForJohnnyDepp”

Well, they’re not wrong — but this situation is hardly black and white.
