Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation trial may have ended but, the social media trial continues to wage. Interestingly, Depp's lawyer Camille Vasquez played a crucial role in securing the actor’s win. Vasquez’s closing argument against Heard is now going viral again, but for all the wrong reasons.
The lawyer was previously lauded for the arguments she made in the courtroom, however, this time netizens wondered if she had a slip of tongue on her behalf as she ended up calling Depp an abuser.
In the latest viral video, Vasquez can be seen rendering her closing argument, announcing why Depp needs the jury’s support. However, in the middle, as she claims Amber’s accusations to be false, she inadvertently calls Depp an ‘abuser’.
A section of netizens argues that the incident was merely a slip of tongue on Vasquez’s behalf. However, Amber Heard fans have seeming taking it out of context, circulating the video claiming that Johnny Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez supported Amber during the argument.
Camilie, however, immediately makes up for the slip later and says, “there is an abuser in this courtroom, but not Mr Depp. And there is a victim of domestic abuse in this courtroom, but it is not Ms Heard.”
For the unaware, Johnny and Amber’s legal battle between two started on April 11, 2022, and ended on June 1, 2022. The jury rendered the decision in favour of Johnny by the end of the trial, with the court announcing that Amber must compensate Depp with a total of $15 million as damages.
Johnny sued ex-wife Amber for defaming him in a 2018 Washington post article which saw Heard calling herself the saviour of domestic abuse. The duo got married in 2015 and the next year, Heard filed for a divorce, citing physical abuse.
