🧵 The #DeppVHeard case can become the turning point for male domestic abuse victims to stop the cycle of abuse and get help

This fair verdict can break stigma, shame and stereotypes surrounding DV for male victims. Feminism is not meant to live off the suffering of battered men
🪡 In the past months there were many mainstream media articles, trying to convince you that amplifying the voices of male DV victims is a threat to feminist movements. Reaffirming that only a woman can be a a victim and listening to male survivors like johnny would hurt #MeToo
📊 According to statistics intimate partner violence towards men is not a rare event

USA: More than 830,000 men fall victim to domestic violence yearly

UK: 786,000 of men were victims of DV in 2018/2019

Canada: Identified “Gender Symmetry” in their IPV statistics

You have not been sued for libel.

I have.

There are many things I have wanted to say in the last 6 weeks of #DeppvHeard

But I haven't.

Because whatever I say will be used to attack not just me but others too.

Because that's how libel works. That's the whole point of it.
You have not been sued for libel.

So you'll not understand how it's not just designed to silence you. Although it does. But also to destroy you. Which it does too.

It's not a pissy business dispute. It's a full-frontal multi-million quid existential assault. On who you are.
You have not been sued for libel.

Because it is a rich man's sport. That only rich men play. Because only millionaires get to have 'reputations' in the age of the internet. Sticks & stones, pal, you just have to suck it up.

Jeg skjønner veldig godt at de som ikke har fulgt #DeppvHeard saken opplever det som et show, og også at Heard er offer her. Jeg tenkte slik sjøl før jeg begynte å følge med daglig. Jeg tror hovedgrunnen til at det er så stor forskjell i opplevelse for de som har fulgt med 1/
tett, og de som bare har lest om saken er så forskjellig handler om noe svært viktig. Depp-siden har ført denne saken for retten. Heard-siden har ført denne saken for media. Depp siden la ned ressursene sine på gode advokater og en god jobb i rettsystemet. 2/
Heard-siden har lagt ned jobben ikke der, men på PR, på pressemeldinger, på sosiale medier (ja, det er faktisk de, ikke Depp-siden som hadde kampanjer i sosiale medier, startet av de hun betalte. De som har støttet Depp, flere og flere etter hvert, har kommet til fordi de 3/

I can no longer stay quiet on #DeppvHeard. I watched pretty much all the #DeppVHeardTrial (amazing I got any work done or still have a relationship) and my main takeaway message is, yet again: WE ARE STILL FAILING EVERYONE WHEN WE IGNORE WOMEN'S VIOLENCE & ABUSE. Buckle up...1/13
Just to be clear about *my* context - I'm not a men's rights activist, I'm not a feminist, I'm not a Depp/Heard supporter. I am a staunch believer that there are no 'bad people' but that people do bad things, and that everyone should be given the chance to change. 2/13
I strongly believe in evidence-based psychological understanding of why people do the bad things they do, and using that to inform what might be changed or nurtured to reduce the chances of those bad things happening again. 3/13

Heard’s closing:

“Think about the message Mr Depp and his legal team are sending to Ms Heard and, by extension, all victims of domestic abuse: If you didn’t take pictures, it didn’t happen. If you did take pictures, they’re fake.”
“If you didn’t tell your friends, you weren’t injured. If you did tell your friends, they were part of the hoax.”

#JohnnyDepptrial #JohnnyDeppAmberHeardTrial
“If you didn't seek medical treatment, you weren't injured. If you did seek medical treatment, you're crazy… if you finally decide that enough is enough, you've had enough of the fear, enough of the pain and you have to leave to save yourself, you're a gold digger”

Another huge day in court yesterday. Here’s what happened:

#DeppHeardTrial #JohnnyDeppVsAmberHeardTrial #DeppvHeard #deppvsheardtrial
Amber Heard returned to the stand. Her lawyers asked her how this trial has affected her, and tbh it was heartbreaking. I know people are saying that they don’t find her emotion credible but personally I don’t see that; I see a very distressed person.
AH was asked about the mockery and harassment she has received from JD fans. She says she gets “thousands” of death threats.

“People want to put my baby in the microwave, and they tell me so.” She also talked about being harassed by JD fans outside the courthouse.

It’s a glorious morning here at the Fairfax County Judicial Complex. District Court 5J will soon be in session for the second day of Amber Heard’s cross-examination in the #DeppvHeard defamation trial. Thread follows.
The spectators are in court. The two parties’ legal teams have just strolled past me into court and the jurors are down the corridor to my right being quite chatty (amongst themselves, obs)
Proceedings begin at 9am eastern time.

This was the line at Fairfax County Court for #DeppvHeard this morning at just gone 7am. There are no journalists in the main court today. People have been queuing overnight.
Court began at 9am. I had UK TV news duties to attend to regarding the first hour of evidence, and I am now catching up, whilst sitting outside court 5J with the other journalists.
You can watch the live feed either by watching the E! news youtube TV feed which shows evidence as it comes up:

OR the Law and Crime feed which mainly focuses on Depp and Heard in split screen.

Hi there’s another youtube video up - I posted it yesterday but forgot to mention it here. Two stalwarts from the National Coalition for Men give there views on the issues surrounding #DeppvHeard:

I am acutely aware that most...
… of the youtube content I have been posting mainly features interviews with Depp-leaning or supporting interviewees. One correspondent was kind enough to watch every single interview and break down THE MINUTAGE of those who are pro-Depp, neutral or pro-AH. It’s quite...
… a statistical endeavour! I have that correspondent’s permission to put the full breakdown in my next newsletter, which I’ll put out tonight.

If you are an AH supporter and have some professional or personal interest in #DeppvHeard and would like to be interviewed by me...

BREAKING NEWS, FOR IMMEDIATE RT: Amber Heard claimed under oath that this is a picture of herself with TWO black eyes, a broken nose and a busted lip. There is NO possibility this photo contains even one black eye. #JusticeForJohhnyDepp #DeppvHeard [Medical explanation follows:]
Now the obvious thing here is that there is some sort of dark smudge on her right lower eyelid, a point in her favor, but that's where it ends for her. The smudge abruptly stops. Not consistent . Black Eyes have burst capillaries, leeching blood into the tissues. [cont.]
The pooling of blood spreads, extensively. It turns dark blue/purple and in combination with skin complexion, it appears black, It's kinda why they're called black eyes. It's a gradual return to normal colored skin as you move further and further away. That's Not all... [cont.]

The current #DeppvHeard jury makeup appears to be:

▪️6 men (4 Asian, 2 White)
▪️3 women (1 Asian, 1 Black, 1 White)
▫️7 jurors will decide the case. Later, 2 will be designated as alternates

@CourtTV #johnnydepp #AmberHeard
The number of jurors empaneled to hear a civil matter varies state to state.

In Virginia, civil trials can encompass 5 or 7 jurors depending on how much money is sought in the lawsuit... Virginia Code §8.01-359
Virginia Code §16.1-77 indicates that the max jurisdictional limit is $25,000; so, if a lawsuit seeks more than that amount, the jury would be comprised of 7 people.

▪️Depp is suing Heard for $50million

▪️Therefore, 7 people are deciding his case and it must be unanimous

Amber Heard tonight after realizing that the world still won't believe her lies and that the new PR is not worth anything. #amberheard #AmberHeardIsALiar #AmberHeardIsAnAbuser #JusticeForJohnnyDepp Image
Amber Heard - Part 1: Today I learned that you can have PTSD & still have 2 personality disorders. What she presented was not only bad acting but a failed attempt to seem luke the normal person. #amberheard #AmberHeardlsALiar #AmberHeardIsAnAbuser #JusticeForJohnnyDepp Image
Amber Heard - Part 2: It sounded like She described her father. Now every man must be the same bad man as the father was. She totally has these 2 disorders. She also behaved like a child. #amberheard #JusticeForJohnnyDepp #AmberHeardIsAnAbuser #AmberHeardlsALiar Image

Good after (just) in ET time (just) and welcome to Fairfax County Court where I have not been live tweeting due to a UK 5 News commitment and due to wanting to spend a bit of time in court.


Tweet thread follows...
The day started with the cross-examination of Dr Dawn Hughes by Johnny Depp’s team.

DH is a forensic psychologist hired by AH’s team. Yesterday she told court she diagnosed AH with PTSD due to violent sexual abuse by JD. She also did not diagnose her with BPD or HPD...
… this morning Wayne Dennison for JD’s team said that when DrH spoke of victims she always used the she/her pronouns and said she couldn’t remember when she last testified for a male victim of abuse.

DrH said she used female pronouns because it was appropriate to her...

Gooooooood morning from the queue outside Fairfax County Court. Live tweets of #DeppvHeard to follow. Watch the video to the very end for a special guest appearance.
Court 5J is in session - Week 4 day 13 of #DeppvHeard. This could be the final day of JD witnesses. The lawyers and judges are currently discussing administrative matters which means the live feed sound bar is cut, so, whilst we are waiting for the jury to come in...

1/ A lot of #MeToo advocates are showing their asses about the #JohnnyDeppAmberHeardTrial and I have thoughts. Framing this case as a zero-sum game against Heard, women, DV/DA survivors, #MeToo, etc. is unhelpfully reductive
2/ The more dogged #MeToo crowd seems to be struggling to parse info presented thus far because they’ve backed themselves into a corner by saying “believe all women”/“‘due process’ is the patriarchy inflicting more violence and trauma”
3/ Many points being made about trauma’s effect on survivors, DARVO defense tactics used by perpetrators, etc. are valid, but could just as easily be used to support Depp’s testimony

Good morning from the queue to get into Fairfax County Courtroom 5J. More pre-recorded deposition evidence expected today.
It is one of the coldest mornings of this three week old trial so far.

Fortified by the Fairfax County court cafeteria coffee I am diving into 5J for the start of proceedings. We have more Laura Wasser, apparently followed by another pre-recorded deposition this time from the ACLU who had the idea for and drafted AH’s 2018 WaPo piece.
Which is at the centre of this defamation case, if anyone’s losing track…

Good morning from Fairfax County Court, Virginia where Day 10 of the Depp v Heard trial is well underway. You can watch the live feed on youtube here

Or follow these tweets for an overview of what’s going on. Everything I write is a summary...
… or paraphrase of what is happening in court. Nothing is a direct quote unless it is in “direct quotes”.

Yesterday saw the conclusion of Ben King’s testimony. Today we start with our first remote live testimony from Tara Roberts [TR], estate manager on Johnny Depp’s island.
She’s managed his island for 15 years - her job is to look after the staff and day to day operations on the island, houses, fuel, food etc. She describes it as like an estate in the middle of nowhere.

TR is shown a video of JD’s house on the island.

Welcome to the longest queue so far outside Fairfax County Court, Virginia for the beginning of Week 3 of DeppvHeard. Johnny Depp’s cross-examination is expected to conclude today.
I am told the witness schedule for today is likely to be as follows (subject to change):

Managed to spend the first part of today in court before diving out to do an as live for @5_News (on air now in the UK).

There was a 24 minute delay this morning before the jury filed in.

Then JD’s xe resumed - short audio clips were played in. Some were indistinct, but in...
