Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against Amber Heard is ongoing. Many celebrities have shared their opinion on the messy court case. Very recently, Julia Fox has commented on the trial as well. She too has been in the headlines recently after she dated Kanye West. The two only dated for a short while. She has made a comment that Amber Heard hitting Johnny Depp is not abuse. This has infuriated the internet. Both have claimed that they faced abuse in the relationship, testifying that they were the victim.
Julia Fox supports Amber Heard on Instagram
In a post on Instagram, the star commented that Amber Heard couldn’t abuse Johnny Depp because he did not have power in the relationship. Julia Fox claims that due to her lack of power, the Aquaman actress hitting Depp wasn’t abuse. Not being the same age as the Pirates of the Caribbean star or having similar fame would justify her hitting him, according to her.
She wrote, “She (Amber) never had the power in the relationship to be abusive to him (Johnny). Did she hit him? Yes. Was it abuse? No. You need to have the power to be able to abuse it. She was 25. He clearly was always way more powerful, including physically and financially.”
The internet slams Julia Fox over her comment
The netizens took over the internet to talk about the comment. One of them said, “Julia fox really said with her whole chest that even though amber heard hit Johnny Depp, it wasn’t abusing because she was 25???” Another weighed in saying “Na wah oh. Going by this analogy it’s ok for young women to beat and possibly kill their lovers/husbands if they are younger and earn less than them right?”
Another Twitter user wrote, “Feminism at its worst, she legit missed the whole point.” Another fan added that “How to cancel yourself: a guide.” Also, a fan of Johnny Depp tweeted against the comment too, “So much wrong with this. 1) physically, yes, he’s more powerful than her (biology) but did he USE that power against her? No. 2) apparently 25 = powerless? there are much younger, v dangerous people. 3) financial power = abuse? get your facts straight. #JusticeForJohhnyDepp.”
The trial is ongoing and will conclude on May 27, 2022.
