Johnny Depp was a Victim of Cancel Culture

Johnny Depp knows a thing or two about cancel culture. For the past two years, the actor has been involved in a very public dispute with his ex-wife Amber Heard. Last year, Depp lost a libel lawsuit he filed against The Sun.

In a 2018 article, the UK tabloid called him a “wife-beater,” which the actor took offense to. Depp’s lawyers allege that Depp never abused Heard. In fact, they alleged that Heard did the abuse on many occasions.  

However, British rules against slander are much more stringent. As a result, Depp lost his case. A London judge said that using civil standards, Depp can be guilty of the bulk of Heard’s domestic abuse claims.

Depp moved on by filing a $50 million lawsuit against Heard. This time, he did so in a US court. Not to take the matter lying down, Heard filed a $100 million counterclaim.

Whether Depp did abuse her ex-wife or not, the damage has been done. Mega studio Walt Disney Co dropped Johnny Depp from his blockbuster franchise “Pirates of the Caribbean” days after Heard’s testimony.

Johnny Depp Receives Donostia Award at the San Sebastian Film Festival

Depp attended the San Sebastian film festival, which started last week, to receive an award. He took the Donostia Award for career achievement and thanked the organizers.

He admitted that some people might find his presence at the festival offensive. However, he still thanked director Jose Luis Rebordinos and the city mayor for “not buying what has been, for far too long, some notion of me that doesn’t exist.”

During a news conference, Depp lashed out at the present film industry. “Hollywood is certainly not what it was. Large, large corporations take control of these things.

As someone who takes part in the creation of cinema, how much more formula do we need from the likes of studios? How much more condescension do we need as audiences? I think that Hollywood has grotesquely underestimated the audience,” he said. 

Instant Rush to Judgment

Prior to the Film Festival, Depp talked to industry reporters about cancel culture. “It can be seen as an event in history that lasted for however long it lasted, this cancel culture, this instant rush to judgment based on what essentially amounts to polluted air,” Depp said.

“It’s so far out of hand now that I can promise you that no one is safe. Not one of you. No one out that door. No one is safe. It takes one sentence and there’s no more ground, the carpet has been pulled,” he added. 

In addition, he said that cancel culture already took many victims. “It’s not just me that this has happened to, it’s happened to a lot of people. This type of thing has happened to women, men.

Sadly at a certain point, they begin to think that it’s normal. Or that it’s them. When it’s not,” he added. “It doesn’t matter if a judgment, per se, has taken some artistic license.

When there’s an injustice, whether it’s against you or someone you love, or someone you believe in — stand up, don’t sit down. ‘Cause they need you,” he implored the audience.

    Poor Johnny, there’s a hell of lot of serious issues out there let’s deal with those first . just another poor millionaire

  • Wayne Morgan says:

    Yeah we heard about people going to vote being told they had already voted. Hard to say what I would have actually done but leaving would have been my last move. Show me the proof, I say I haven’t and you say I have prove it. Fed up with the Democratic Socialists playbook. Ready for some serious payback. Unleash your worst DS because you have poked the National Bear and they are ready to respond in kind. Tired of being threatened by a man that puts his underwear on backwards.

  • Thomas W Briggs Sr says:

    It’s high time intelligent people wake up and tell these anti everything people to grow up and stop behaving like children.

  • sherril henderson says:

    Just another way to change our country so that the far left can change it to a communist dictatorship. We have to get rid of all those people who are absolute lunatics’.We must get term limits!

  • Anna says:

    Why and how did cancil culture start, well Democrats started it to stir up the public! The Dems love starting wars! Now its about getting rid of people qho don’t line up with their agenda!

  • David says:

    That’s all of your hollywood buddies, so take a bath in it. It’s only bad because it happened to you, poor johnny! And your buddy disney is illegally forcing an experimental, dangerous drug on people so…birds of a feather!

  • BBA says:

    How pathetic is this chump. Depp is only crying now because he has been targeted. All of these Hollywood socialist idiots can go straight to hell and if/when the Civil war starts the patriots should start with burning down Hollywood and the MSM!

  • HooYah Brother says:

    I’m in on all accounts. I love the comments from everyone so far. Johnny Depp was a Never-Trumper and now that he is being assaulted by the media he is whining like a baby. I used to like him but not anymore. I am a Patriot, a Veteran, and most of all an American who supports and believes in the U.S. Constitution. We Patriots have a lot of patience but when we are pushed up against the wall…the wall will come down and the Democrats will see the likes of a battle they never imagined. I can’t think of one Democrat that is worth the air they breath. Each of them took an oath to “protect and defend the Constitution” against foreign and domestic enemies. It seems to me the Dems are the domestic enemies. Trump WILL be back in the White House!!

  • Conway Redding says:

    The Cancel Culture people are all for diversity, except when that concept is extended to opinions. Then they want uniformity. Cancel Culture is all about homogeneity of ideology, shutting down those who dare to question any of the tenets of wokeism.

  • Sharon Stewart says:

    I agree with those of you that believe cancel culture causes more friction, is yet another way to CONTROL people, DESTROY our Country in a number of ways, i.e. Abolish our Constitution & Freedoms, Create more tension/unrest, narcissistic behavior, control freaks, hell bent to turn America into a Communistic Country, continually disrespect our Military, & show NO compassion, no support, no appreciation, NOTHING but abuse, risking their lives by leaving them in constant danger & abandoning them. Pay the damn illegal immigrants, pay the Afghan’s, & give absolutely NO assistance to our active Military or Veterans. It infuriates me to the extreme that our Gov’t, by their actions, does not give a damn about loss of lives, loss of limbs (some lost both arms & legs), the sacrifices of families, the permanent sacrifices & life altering condition. The Democrats & Corp Entities MUST BE IMMEDIATELY STOPPED!! Due to immigrants being given free rein to spread their COVID infectious bodies to Americans, which has resulted in American Illnesses, & Deaths – THIS IS MURDER BY BIDEN & HIS STOOGES. ABANDONING AMERICAN’S IN AFGANISTAN causing DEATHS & IMMORTAL BEATINGS — THIS,TOO, IS MURDER BY BIDEN, HIS STOOGES & MILITARY LEADERS, I.E. MILLEY. UNREASONABLE & UNNECESSARY MANDATES, WHICH THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT TO DO – Putting small business out of business, people getting fired that won’t take vaccine – THIS IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF NON-ADHERENCE OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. BIDEN & HIS CHINESE COUNTERPARTS HAD HANDS ON INVOLVEMENT IN COVID. BIDEN IS GUILTY OF TREASON IN THIS ISSUE & PROVIDING NAMES & PERSONAL INFO OF OUR AMERICAN’S IN AFGAN TO TALIBAN – TREASON & MURDER. REPUBLICANS & PATRIOTIC AMERICANS THAT SUPPORT OUR COUNTRY,OUR CONSTITUTION, FREEDOM & INDEPENDENCE FOR AMERICA – A FIRM, UNITED STAND MUST BE TAKEN TO STOP THIS DESTRUCTION. IF WE DON’T DO THIS PDQ, WE’LL NEVER BE THE AMERICA AGAIN THAT OUR FOREFATHERS, OUR FAMILIES, & WE HAVE LOVED & BEEN LOYAL – OTHER COUNTRIES RESPECTED & WERE ON OUR SIDE. BIDEN & THIS ADMIN HAS & IS FOCUSED ON PROMOTING RACISM & EVERY FORM OF NON-UNITY THERE IS. WE WILL FOREVER LOSE MORE THAN WE ALREADY HAVE IF BIDEN & DEMS ARE NOT STOPPED. THERE IS NO TIME TO PLAY NICE – THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND HONESTY, RESPECT, LOYALTY TO AMERICA. THEY DO NOT WANT A FREE, SELF-SUPPORTING INDEPENDENT AMERICA – THEY WANT TOTAL CONTROL, COMMUNISM. AS TO VACCINE MANDATES – THAT IS A PERSONAL DECISION & A DECISION MADE W/MEDICAL CONSULTATION. IT IT IN NO WAY A DECISION FOR GOVERNMENT TO MAKE/FORCE. WITH THE LIES OF BIDEN, FAUCI & OTHERS, THERE’S NO WAY IN HELL I TRUST THEM IN WHETHER A VACCINE IS SAFE, HEALTHY, OR PREVENTATIVE. FOR ALL I KNOW, SINE THE COVIDD VIRUS CAME FROM CHINA, CHINA & BIDEN MAY ALSO HAVE THEIR HANDS & INFECTIOUS BACTERIA IN THE VACCINE. THESE ARE NOT THE DAYS WHEN MEASLES, MUMPS & RUEBELLA VACCINES WERE INVENTED, TESTED, TRIED BY HONEST MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS, HONEST FDA, HONEST CDC. PAINFULLY & SADISTICALLY CRIMINALLY, TREASONOUS, DESTRUCTIVE GOVERNMENT ENTITIES ARE DESTROYING US ALL & CANNOT BE TRUSTED. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO DETERMINED & CONVINCED THAT AMERICA IS IN DIRE,IMMINIENT DANGER. THIS CANNOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY OR FELT THAT OH, THIS TOO SHALL PASS. THINK OF OUR CHILDREN & THE LOSS OF THEIR RIGHT TO LIFE, LIBERTY & THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. DO YOU WANT OUR CHILDREN/GRANDCHILDREN TO GROW UP IN A COMMUNIST CONTROLLED COUNTRY?
