The jury is still deliberating in the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard defamation case. The Depp team is trying to prove that Heard allegedly defamed him when she called herself a domestic abuse survivor in a 2018 newspaper article.
Depp’s lawyer argued he was actually the one who was abused over the course of several years. In total, jurors heard six weeks’ worth of testimony and evidence presented to them.
The trial is sparking conversations here in the Carolinas on men being victims of domestic violence, though their stories are rarely – if ever – heard.
