Every day since April 11, Court TV and the Law and Crime Channel began broadcasting each and every one of the trial sessions with Depp Y Amber, showing every last detail of the case. Both actors, especially the star of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl – 79%, were able to gather a significant number of supporters outside the Fairfax County Circuit Court, in the state of Virginia, who stood outside the complex every day with flowers, letters and many shouts of support.

According to the report of InsiderLaw and Crime Channel has recorded 428 million viewers since the trial began in April, including the more than 600,000 who connected simultaneously every time Johnny Depp took the stand, surpassing one million on some occasions and setting a record for the channel itself. Rachel Stockmanpresident of Law and Crime on YouTube, shared a statement about the impressive interest shown by viewers in the trial:

It seems that this curiosity and fascination of being an armchair detective and trying to figure out who was right and who was wrong has captivated the audience here. However, I think there are some benefits to this, which is its transparency in our justice system and that’s important. And the fact that more viewers and more readers get involved in this system may in the future generate interest in other cases that are covered.

At the beginning of 2019, Johnny Depp accused of defamation Amber Heard after I wrote an article on Washington Post in which she referred to herself as a survivor of abuse, declaring that together with the actor she had suffered domestic violence and other ills (although she did not explicitly name him). The 58-year-old star asked for US $50 million in compensation for moral damages, she asks for double.

Although the judgment is very important, it is worth mentioning that things are relatively better for Johnny Depp in the court of public opinion, compared to Amber. Social networks benefit the actor, while Heard no longer seems able to maintain a good image in the press and on the web; Conversation about reducing his Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom role has skyrocketed and the petition to remove her from the movie and the DCEU has surpassed 3 million signatures. It is clear that the general opinion is a great point of support (or destruction) for the stars of the entertainment industry. Will either of them be able to recover the good reputation they had in the past?

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom opens on March 17, 2023. Will there be a future for Amber Heard after this movie? For Johnny after obtaining the result of the trial?
