A Pirate Prospers – Victory for Johnny Depp

‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star Johnny Depp’s victory was deserved; it is now time for Amber Heard to be dragged back to Britain to face perjury charges

Johnny Deep v Amber Heard (Round Two) was always going to be car crash viewing. Like Rebekah Vardy v Coleen Rooney though with a bit of added crack and cocaine, this was a defamation case that frankly should not have been heard but also one that illustrated that self-serving vanity generally leads to self-deserved destruction.


As was seen when Vardy was most definitely kicked into touch in the witness box, the crocodile tears of Heard will now go down in history as representative only of someone of warped mind and wicked motive. Here was a woman whose lies have come back to haunt her and here is someone whose name will now forever be mud.



Supported by amongst others Javier Bardem, Kate Moss, Winona Ryder and Sia, Depp – admittedly a man with flaws that must be acknowledged – was not only the victor in the courtroom.  He won legions of fans on social media and now though The Guardian’s Andrew Pulver suggested that the careers prospects of both will continue to suffer, I’d argue it’ll be quite to the contrary for Depp.



Currently enjoying life to the full on a tour of Britain with guitarist Jeff Beck and singer Sam Fender and clearly making the most of life, the Pirates of the Caribbean star is now £6.66 million ($8.35 million, €7.81 million or درهم30.67 million) richer and deservedly headed to a pub in Newcastle to neck a pint or ten last night.


‘Anxious Amber,’ meanwhile, may now feel “disappointment,” but in falsely claiming this verdict “sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated.” Instead of accepting the decision and moving on, she ludicrously whinged:


“I believe Johnny’s attorneys succeeded in getting the jury to overlook the key issue of Freedom of Speech and ignore evidence that was so conclusive that we won in the UK.”


“I’m sad I lost this case. But I am sadder still that I seem to have lost a right I thought I had as an American – to speak freely and openly.”


Ending with a far more dignified statement, Depp simply concluded:


“The best is yet to come and a new chapter has finally begun.”


“Veritas numquam perit.”


“Truth never perishes.”


It is now time for Amber Heard to be dragged back to Britain and charged with perjury for the clear lies she told at the Royal Courts of Justice; it is now time also to remember that Johnny Depp – who showed his positivity and unbeat personality in saying: “Life’s pretty good, and why wouldn’t it be? I’m a pirate, after all – is a talented man who deserves to once again be left to focus on treading the boards.

On Twitter, Nick Adams joined the vast majority in rightly concluded that this was a victory “for all men who have been wrongfully accused of sexual assault.”
Amended statement
Others amended the statement of the haranguer Heard and called her out for what she genuinely, truly, most definitely is – an out and out liar.
Mocking the likely next chapter for the mendacious minx, one website suggested this decidedly deviant’s net worth now to be -$10 million. Her career deservedly in tatters, her reputation in ruins and her future prospects panned, here is someone who should have long ago learnt the art of silence. Instead, here was an attention seeker with more front than Brighton who finally got what she deserved. It is time for this wicked woman to now disappear.

  1. I just love Johnny Depp. I cannot help it. He will have learned a great deal more than Amber through this most unfortunate series of events. Wow. I am alarmed that they didnt part ways when it became an assault on their own self respect. I cant quite summon an ” Ah Love “moment for these two. He is more popular than ever and is receiving its power with powerful grace.

  2. Text messages read out in court from June 2013, show Johnny Depp and actor Paul Bettany joking about killing Amber Heard.

    Lawyer: “After you said let’s drown her before we burn her Mr Depp, you said I will ‘beep’ her corpse afterward to make sure she is dead. That’s what you said you’d do after you drowned her and after you burned her. Did I read that right?”

    Depp: “You certainly did.”

    Is that what victory really looks like?

    You’re treading on shaky ground with this one Matt.

  3. Love the edits, Matthew. Anyone who couldn’t see through her was blind. You don’t antagonize an abuser. She loved Johnny? Yeah right! Then why did she record him in his worst moments. Course, if I had lived with her, I doubt I would have enjoyed my life.

    I wouldn’t have blamed him for decking her, however, if he had, it would have left more than a little scratch considering the size of his rings.

    She needs psychological assistance. No wonder she has so few friends, who wants to have a narcissistic psychopath to hang around? Just my perceptions.

  4. Arrrrr, now Johnny the pirate can sail off in his old fruit sloop to get away from this bimbo, and get some peace.
