When your #metoo moment turns into a #mepoo moment.
The Amber Heard/Johnny Depp trial is a lot to unpack. It’s crazy. It’s confusing. It’s as juicy as a fat shit tucked into the covers of their marriage bed. So let’s break this down a bit, yeah? Let’s get the major bullet points out of the way and figure out how we got here.
Amber Heard accused Johnny Depp of physically assaulting her during their brief and tumultuous marriage. She alleges he threw a phone at her, bruising her face.
Heard’s claims were proven false by authorities.
But it didn’t matter to Hollywood. The #metoo movement was too shocking. The offenses committed by awful pieces of absolute dogshit like Cosby and Weinstein and Spacey were too sickening. As important and eye-opening as the movement was, there were the opportunists who managed to ride the #metoo wave and ruin the lives of good men. Even as they were abusers themselves.
