  • Thank you, J Davis, for posting another article on this trial, which doesn’t wrongly cast Depp as the “real” victim. Wish there were more honest coverage like this instead of all the grifters feeding the Depp crazies what they wanna hear to assuage their cognitive dissonance.

  • Thank you , after what I have seen in court today and the way he was lost fit words , he is an alcoholic drug addict narcissist verbally nasty verbally abusive insecure jealous low life garbage whom got lucky make money from Disney ,never a good actor even during his performances he was drunk , cheap as he never given a dime to charity . Some show up at children’s hospitals for publicity ,and ugly without an makeup as no one would even consider dating him if he had no money , she is way out of his league and he knows it

  • THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! The whole world needs to read this. It’s absolutely terrifying that this has turned into a witch hunt and that so many are worshipping JD and ignoring his violence, addictions and misogynistic abuse. Once again, denial is fierce and serves no one in the long run, only preventing the needed healing. The real truth will surface eventually.

  • There’s more lies JD has been caught in, for example day 22 JD lied on the stand under oath. JD claimed AH hit him on the Orient train and caused a bruise under his eye. Evidence showed a picture of him before the train ride with that bruise. If AH caused the bruise, there would be no need to lie about where and when it happened. JD lied in court under oath about domestic abuse.

    • I m so happy to find this forum as there is no other place to tell the violence and abuse faced by women this day.. he is a wife beater and monster.
