Before the judge dismissed the Fairfax VA jury for the weekend with directives that they had to strictly protect their understanding of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard court issues from being influenced by outside chatter – Johnny Depp’s lawyer uncovered that someone appears to have been severely abused in the marriage between Depp and actress Heard- and it was not Heard.
Depp’s lawyer asked Depp to react to a video of Heard mocking him, saying that no one would ever believe him if he should tell his story of domestic abuse.
“I am,” Depp said ” I am not telling that story”, leading court watchers to talk about the obvious double standards of the Me Too Movement, that all women must be believed- even when people know it is they who are the abusers.
Too often it is women who have abused men and then run and hide behind the privilege in the leftist media and with the courts that they “must be believed”, even when people know they are lying.
Hopefully, those days are over.
And hopefully, with Depp’s bravery to confront one of the last remaining taboos of our culture- that all women are not worthy of respect n matter how they act- we will see some real justice for the men who have been abused openly by women, with permission from the US Court system.

I’m laughing so hard, this is Amber Heard’s face after Johnny’s attorneys played the clip of her saying “Tell the world Johnny that I, Johnny depp am a victim of domestic violence, and see if the jury, see how many people believe- or side with you” pic.twitter.com/utp3AtJ3z0

Longtime Depp bodyguard Malcolm Connolly and driver Starling Jenkins testified on Thursday.
Connolly testified that he never saw injuries on Amber Heard — but did see them on Depp.
“It would be scratches on his neck, maybe a fat lip in the corner,” Connolly said, testifying over a video link from England.
Testifying about a photo taken in 2015 during Depp’s and Heard’s honeymoon in Malaysia, Connolly said there is swelling evident on the actor’s face.
“He walked into a door, or a door walked into him,” he said.
“He had bruising on the eye socket,” Connolly said. “It would get more regular. Not every week, but it definitely happened, yeah.”
Viewing a photo, Connolly remembered the day and described what he saw:
“Most of these marks were happening on the left hand side of his face… fat lip, bruises to his eye…” Connolly testified that Heard attacked Johnny Depp on their honeymoon trip.
These are the photos that were presented in court:

Domestic abuse against men can take the form of physical violence, emotional, verbal, or sexual abuse.
If you’re a man in an abusive relationship, it’s important to know that you’re not alone. Abuse of men happens far more often than you might expect—in both heterosexual and same sex relationships. It happens to men from all cultures and all walks of life, regardless of age or occupation. Figures suggest that as many as one in three victims of domestic violence are male. However, men are often reluctant to report abuse because they feel embarrassed, fear they won’t be believed, or are scared that their partner will take revenge.
An abusive partner may hit, kick, bite, punch, spit, throw things, or destroy your possessions. To make up for any difference in strength, they may attack you while you’re asleep or otherwise catch you by surprise. They may also use a weapon, such as a gun or knife, or strike you with an object, abuse or threaten your children, or harm your pets.
Of course, domestic abuse is not limited to violence. Emotional and verbal abuse can be just as damaging. As a male, your spouse or partner may:
- Verbally abuse you, belittle you, or humiliate you in front of friends, colleagues, or family, or on social media.
- Be possessive, act jealous, or harass you with accusations of being unfaithful.
- Take away your car keys or medications, try to control where you go and who you see.
- Try to control how you spend money or deliberately default on joint financial obligations.
- Make false allegations about you to your friends, employer, or the police, or find other ways to manipulate and isolate you.
- Threaten to leave you and prevent you from seeing your kids if you report the abuse.
As an abused man, you may face a shortage of resources, a lack of understanding from friends and family, and legal obstacles, especially if trying to gain custody of your children from an abusive mother. Whatever your circumstances, though, you can overcome these challenges and escape the violence and abuse.
Court for Depp’s defamation case is expected to resume on Monday.
