Real Talk: none of your narratives fit with this.

Remember that post I made about actually being able to hold off Black History Month. That same woman, and literally all of the other women in my area, who were also all Leftwingers, despise Amber Herd. Surprising amount of NSFW comments from them at work.

Most women absolutely hate Amber Heard because she's a psycho bitch, (she's actually a predator, but psycho bitch is how most normies see it).

As for Johnny Depp, this court case fucking revived his career. The slander against him has been relatively non-existent, #MeToo backed off a loosing fight, he's repeatedly come across as charming and sympathetic. Honestly, the difference between Day 1 of this trail and today is a fucking night and day difference between how Depp is carrying himself because as crazy as it's been, it genuinely showed he wasn't a violent wife-beater, and everyone figured out who was abusing whom.

Honest to God, I will bet you a silver coin his career recovers to the point that he's in significant movies again. Say, movies that make $50 million in their first week within 10 years.

As for not being a fan of Trump? He's Hollywood, I wouldn't expect him to.

You are overestimating a lot their morals. Most women hate Heard because they love Depp. He has been a sex icon for a long time now, and a lot of women swoon over him like no other.

That has been a major factor in this case from the start. She didn't try to throw some nobody under the bus. She tested the Sisterhood versus the Horny, and Horny always wins.

I don't doubt that thier is sex appeal to Johnny Depp. However, it's clear that they also genuinely hate Amber Herd.

I think they are angry that she's both a psycho bitch and they are horny.

Adamrises 14 points ago +14 / -0

Well of course they hate her. She had what they wanted, AND damaged it.

Gizortnik 5 points ago +5 / -0

Not saying that's a wrong view, I'm saying that the level of damage, and the ability to inflict it, is also part of their analysis on why she's trash.

APDSmith 5 points ago +5 / -0

Even if you subscribe Imp's apparent view that women form some kind of wasp-like eusocial hive mind, Heard still doesn't do well here, because she's shown herself to be the kind of damaged personality that will throw other women under the bus too.

Why would some woman-insect collective consciousness tolerate that?

Gizortnik 7 points ago +7 / -0

They wouldn't.

I think there is some merit to the idea that she actually is abusing women's privilege, and women actually notice that, and are throwing her under the bus because an abuse of that privilege is a threat to all women.

It's like: there's a reason that (despite all the screeching) men adopting the Pence Rule is very bad for women. It basically inoculates men from the influence of women outside of marriage. Feminine wiles go a long way (frankly, a disturbingly long way, it's like men can be straight up hypnotized), but if all men universally consider all feminine attraction outside of wed-lock to be a threat; that power & influence fucking vanishes.

You are overestimating a lot their morals

I don't think they hate amber heard because of a sense of morality, they hate her because when men aren't around women are fighting amongst themselves and they just hate the amber heard type.

Women's game amongst themselves is some sort of flipping around between authenticity and manipulation, amber heard doesn't have authenticity. In girl battles she's the female equivalent of the man who comes to fight club and in the middle of the fight - pulls out a knife and starts stabbing the guy he's fighting.

Amber Heard is like if the non-schwarzenegger terminator in t2 won at the end of the movie. It's like if Dwight became the manager of The Office.

They don't hate her out of compassion for men, they hate her because they personally don't like her type.

Women love judging other women. That's all that's needed. They don't have to love Depp. I wasn't even aware that, I mean not that I track these things, but Hollywood is full of a lot of attractive men who spend a lot of time maintaining their appearance (tl;dr actors). Does Depp rate in that environment?

Adamrises 3 points ago +3 / -0

Depp has more fangirls than average because he pulls off that wierd artsy rocker look they love, and he was in a bunch of "puberty awakening" movies for them.

I know plural women with obsessive crushes on the guy, the likes of which you don't often see. Adult women at that.

JustHereForTheSalmon 2 points ago +2 / -0

As for Johnny Depp, this court case fucking revived his career.

Has he gotten new work? I honestly don't know.

I'd bet the hiring agents still won't pick him up, because they really believe institutional misogyny protected a wife beater.

Gizortnik 3 points ago +3 / -0

It was just yesterday so I have no idea. But considering the state his career was in, this is a massive improvement. Some agent is going to want to cash in on the fact that he still has sex appeal to women.

RaisingPhoenix 1 point ago +1 / -0

If he even wants to keep working in film anyway. He is getting fairly old now so he might just choose to retire rather than have to deal with all those snobs.

AnotherSchwarzesMark 21 points ago +21 / -0

Yeah, I doubt he'll find any chance to restart his career. They've burned all the bridges for him alongside the ones he's burned. TBF though I'd probably get outside of the limelight by now since this was just to repair his reputation. Overall a win for men even if I do not agree politically with him.

300 million people know Amber Heard shat on a bed. How many people know the names of Ghislaine Maxwell's customers?

TheImpossible1 [S] 2 points ago +4 / -2

A lot of people know about Prince Andrew.

Kweebecker 2 points ago +2 / -0

How many people know the names of Ghislaine Maxwell's customers?

Exactly as long as the arkancide conspiracy theory list plus one.

NoGardE 6 points ago +6 / -0

The clearest evidence that you are wrong: on the final day of Depp's rebuttal case, the executive in charge of DC films at WB gave testimony on his behalf. Those people literally hire people with "executive" in their title to get called to court and answer with "I don't know." Instead, he testified himself.

Hollywood is back on Depp's side. He'll work again. She won't.

When I was a kit Pirates of the Caribbean was a hokey ride at Disneyland. Not even one of the good ones.

xleb2 5 points ago +5 / -0

He won't be restarting his career because he's an aging drug addict and looks like shit.

dagthegnome 9 points ago +9 / -0

He still has more charisma in his little finger than most people could ever summon. The crowds outside the courthouse proved that.

vicious_snek5 7 points ago +7 / -0

The finger that amber cut off and was reattached?

dagthegnome 4 points ago +4 / -0

Yes, specifically that one.

Real talk, Johnny Depp's win will not restart his career. He's an enemy of the right for attacking Trump, and an enemy of the left for proving Amber wrong.

I'll take the opposite stance. I don't even think he needed to win to restart his career. He could have lost, and still "redeemed" himself. He cast huge doubts on the narrative, put himself back in the public eye, and came across as quite likeable, especially compared to Heard.

This is a huge win for Depp, and he can probably at least to some extent restart his acting career, if that's what he chooses to do.

As to your points on Trump and Heard...I think everyone is getting a bit tired of all that divisive shit. A lot on the right have soured on Trump (at least as far as extreme idolization goes), and I think even some people on the left have grown sick of the woke shit. It's weird, I think people are getting more divided than ever, at least on the fringes, but I do think those not on the fringes might be calming the fuck down a bit too. We're in flux, it's hard to say what happens next, but I'm not sure, at least in some relative non-event like this, ideology is quite as impactful as it would have been in recent history.

TL;DR: Depp won big, and I think there is potential for his career if he chooses. People are fed up with the nonsense.

I don't agree. The right has soured on Trump because he wasn't anti-Democrat enough. Not the establishment Never Trumpers of course, but Trump's greatest flaw is that the Democrats deliberately waged biological warfare against the elderly, killing tens of thousands, declared their secession from the United States, took up arms in the name of decriminalising rape and other violent crimes and conspired with a serving general to commit treason; and Trump didn't lift a finger to bring any of them to justice.

If he wants to get back to Hollywood, I see a dress in his future...

ernsithe 6 points ago +6 / -0

If they replace Heard in Aquaman 2 with Johnny Depp in a dress, I will actually give them money.

xleb2 3 points ago +3 / -0

I support your suggestion.

He’s already in some new commercials. Pretty sure he’ll be back, but I may be wrong.

Kienan 2 points ago +2 / -0

Pretty sure he’ll be back

Now I'm imaging Johnny Wick. "Yeah, I'm thinking I'm back. Savvy?"

One would think being a belligerent alcoholic would be more career ruining than a silly op-ed, but I suppose this is Hollywood we're talking about.

TheImpossible1 [S] 0 points ago +5 / -5

They will do everything to keep him from being successful as revenge for this loss, and I doubt the right would ever forgive him.

Mpetey123 12 points ago +12 / -0

There's a lot more obnoxious people than Depp. Not liking Trump isn't that big of deal. He still has fans did you not see the crowds outside the courthouse? Depp will be fine.

Grumman 2 points ago +2 / -0

Not liking Trump isn't that big of deal.

Musing about assassinating the sitting President of the United States is a big deal.

CptLightning 3 points ago +3 / -0

No it's not, unless there's a (D) after his name. Have you been living under a rock for 22 years?

The_Shadow_of_Intent 0 points ago +1 / -1

I would normally say yes but after watching the trial, I can tell he said that because he's genuinely one of those sensitive artist types and sees Trump as the world's most powerful frat boy. As long as he doesn't push it then I don't really care.

Mpetey123 0 points ago +1 / -1

I find people only care if they like the president or not. Unless it's an overt threat to someones life musing isn't that big of deal.

Assassin47 8 points ago +8 / -0

I doubt he wants to be allied with the right.

almond_activator 7 points ago +7 / -0

Just need to get him talking to Russell Brand in his "I married a crazy bitch" support group, and he'll find his way over to neutral ground. From there, it's all on him.

BandageBandolier 2 points ago +2 / -0

Man, getting a Depp-Russel deep interview right now would be a red pilling juggernaut for so many normies.
