In a gripping twist to the whole Amber Heard- Johnny Depp situation, the latter’s attorney has proven that Heard didn’t write the Op-ed for Washington Post. Rather, it was the ACLU who wrote it on her behalf. This certainly seems to bring about a twist in the entire tale, with Adam Waldman, Depp’s attorney stating that the latest email thread between the star and the American Civil Liberties Union shows the latter as a major co-conspirator to discredit Johnny Depp.
Amber Heard Claims She Didn’t Write The Op-Ed
The proof, which Waldman claims he has, mentions the staff of ACLU as the major perpetrators behind the entire idea. They convinced Amber Heard to write it, which was titled “I spoke up against sexual violence and faced our culture’s wrath.” Interestingly, this is the major piece in the entire $50 million libel that Depp has sanctioned on Heard.
Depp believes that the article was pointed towards their relationship- and then called him an abuser. But the email thread suggests that while Heard wasn’t directly involved with the article, her lawyer did suggest she not mention Depp, lest she violates the NDA the couple had signed post-divorce.
In the article. Amber Heard had written about her experiences as a college girl, where she had been victim to major sexual harassment and violence. But she hadn’t registered complaints owing to her non-celebrity status. Since she was a celebrity now, she believes it was her responsibility to stand up to what she was going through. And in her supposed war against this violence, she faced the brunt of the culture against women who spoke out.
Adam Waldman mentioned that Amber Heard wasn’t immune to the consequences of her actions- and even though she wasn’t directly responsible for the Op-ed, she did readily agree to go forth with it.
