Surely Adam Waldman and staff are taking many notes and Kaplan's antics won't go unaddressed in court.
For that matter, a lawsuit toward #metoo should be in order for continued defamation, in my opinion.
But for every cheap shot Kaplan and company sling at Johnny, his soldiers are swift to set them straight in no uncertain terms.
Just look at the petition to get Heard replaced in Aquaman2. The signatures are growing faster than a speeding bullet.
Brian McPherson has been a gem in all of this as well. The strength behind his accurately produced videos are some of the best timelines we have that present the truth about Amber's hoax. Following Brian's brilliant detective work is Autumn On Venus' videos and various podcasts that are spreading the truth, emphasizing Johnny's innocence. This is the power Johnny's supporters have and are taking charge through social media when mainstream services cowardly sit, twiddling their thumbs. All it takes is for one major network or newspaper to stand up in support of Johnny Depp and male victims of abuse and other media will follow.

Through the years, for the many xoxo's, giggles & kindness...
thank you & love you Johnny.

I’m not sure the VA legislature is totally informed on the Depp lawsuit. WaPo and VA journalists are influencing this.

WaPo intentionally fails to report that Depp’s Case was correctly filed in Fairfax as the judge already ruled when her team tried to have it transferred to a California. Amber Heard’s OpEd was contracted by the Washington Post and they have exclusive rights to it. It was printed in their paper and uploaded to their server all maintained in Virginia.

Of course we also now have heard the audio tapes where in her own voice she admits to initiating physical fights and is enraged that he always “splits” when arguments escalate. He won’t stay and fight.

Amber Heard is a woman who claimed she was abused and she has lied.‬ Worse probably, is that she did this knowingly, all too well aware of the reach & influence her stardom affords her. She abused her position to punish & humiliate Depp, as publicly as she could.‬ She used important movements like #MeToo as further status and influence to get her paid speaking jobs including ACLU Ambassador on a false platform

As so many have remarked, mainstream media has been deafeningly silent with respect to offering comment on the recently released audio tapes as is now obvious to even the most casual observer. The even more deafening silence is the question that remains: Why?

From all I have read to date: Why? Because they have been all this time, part and parcel, integral to attributing to Johnny Depp the very crimes that, ironically, are being proven to have been perpetrated against him. Their vindictive, shoddy, purposely selective “journalism”, defiant defense and support of a habitual liar, and ongoing propensity for half truths, inaccuracies, glaring omissions, cherry-picked “quotes”, flagrant, self-serving degradations of JD’s work while snidely referencing never proven allegations (not “charges”, mind you), outright false information - all make them vulnerable to charges of perpetuating for years the defamation that had, in truth, reduced the now abuse-recovering workaholic actor (and humanitarian, musician, artist, producer, writer etc. . .), Johnny Depp, to an almost shadow of himself. The immense harm done this man- professionally, personally, and emotionally - cannot not be mitigated merely because his own indomitable inner strength and unabating belief in justice continues to propel him forward. To recant any of it now would, quite simply and incontrovertibly, be their admission of guilt.

I want to agree with Chocolat’s assessment. It would be a risky move for this spineless lot, but surely not more so than the inevitable damning fallout coming home to roost should they stick stubbornly to their indefensible, hideously tangled, but rapidly unraveling hoax.

I hope Loreal is reading the comments and taking stock that customers are now boycotting their products.

Speaking of L’ORÉAL, L’ORÉAL Paris is one of the four Principal Partners of the 2020 Berlinale International Film Festival where Minamata is premiering next week. The other three Principal Partners are Audi, MAGENTA TV, and ZDF.

L’ORÉAL is profiled in part as: The Berlinale’s official cosmetics specialist that has, since 1999, styled the stars for an absolutely perfect appearance on the Red Carpet.

There seems to be a bit of uncertainty (to be polite) about whether Johnny will actually be at the festival given his last minute bow-out of the recent Beauty Awards gala. No mention of the gracious video he took the time to make and send to the affair in his place.

Last I heard it was confirmed he will be there. Gina has been posting from Paris so I guess we will see.

Johnny had to make a decision on a gig in LA right when the audio was released He had no idea how it would be received. So he had to cancel an LA gig with enough warning for them to replace him. Gina being in Paris with her friends has nothing to do with Johnny. He’ll be at Berlin film festival imo

Gina posted a thank you to her friends and "(and to those not pictured!)" so who knows if Johnny was there or not but I believe he will be at the Berlin film festival because he has a contract to promote the film.

Nah. She’s been on trips with her girlfriends before. I do not see Johnny running around Paris on a shopping trip. Yes some of his island guys are posting from the island. OR JD was at his estate before Zurich premiere so maybe there. Gina doesn’t work for JD and has her own life. In fact I can’t figure out what she does. But we will have new pics next Friday 😄

Thank you, Lbock and ForeverYoung, for the confirmation re: Johnny’s expected upcoming appearance in Berlin to promote Minamata and the very encouraging “. . . we will have new pics next Friday.” :heart2:

This has to be an unimaginably stressful time for Johnny - the audio revelations of the past week, the lawsuit uncertainty now being exacerbated by a pending VA bill and a biased Washington Post article riddled with misinformation (last I looked the 59 comments were overwhelmingly in JD’s favor - do you ever sleep, Lbock?), and now the anticipation surrounding unpredictable feedback to the Minamata premiere. I wonder if any US film critics were among those invited to next Thursday’s viewing . . . can’t come up with even a barely civil comment about that one.

I hope that this new VA bill does not affect Johnny's case.

Not sure where your link was supposed to go, Moonbeam, but if it was to the Washington Post article it is not working. No worries, though.

Ruby Begonia posted the whole article at the top of p. 165, yesterday. She was apparently having similar issues with the “Link”. Thanks to you both!

I share your concerns, as do many others. I would not be surprised if the arrogant Del. Schuyler T. VanValkenburg, (D - Henrico), was “encouraged” to sponsor this bill. A nobody now grinning in the limelight . . . Too many coincidences, not to mention the careless (but oh, so convenient) designating of Johnny’s lawsuit as “frivolous” and lumping it in the same category as Nunes’ case. There are several well-written, pro-Johnny comments after the actual article.
