In the aftermath of the highly publicized and televised Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard defamation trial of 2022, the mountain of evidence that had been presented, examined, and analyzed by the court proved insufficient still to some of the followers of the two celebrities. The lawsuit which is being appealed by the defendant, Amber Heard, is now set to take place in yet to be appointed court date and it tackles the initial verdict that had found Heard guilty of the charges of defamation filed against her.
But now new evidence has surfaced in the form of unsealed court documents as both parties attempt to portray each other in a bad light. Most recently, however, Heard’s supporters have discovered documentation that proves that Depp allegedly attempted to illegally seal parts of evidence that could implicate him during the trial.

The Public Uncovers New Evidence in the Johnny Depp Trial
The defamation trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has occupied the public arena since 2018 as one of the most discussed topics on the internet and several social media platforms. As the entire global demography becomes familiarized with the parties involved and invested in the dramatic twists and emotional revelations of the televised event, more evidence continues to be uncovered even in the aftermath of the jury’s final verdict.
As per reports, the public has officially spent over USD 3000 to unseal court documents that reveal a fairly unsophisticated image of Johnny Depp while fighting the defamation case in Fairfax County, Virginia. The documents are littered with instances of inconsistencies on Depp’s part in providing evidence of abuse and the creation and modification dates on the file metadata appear to be falsified.
Public Opinion Swayed in the Aftermath of New Evidence
As the publicized documents reveal, Johnny Depp uses Amber Heard’s previous job associations as evidence to portray her in a pre-conceived negative light. The document reads that “Evidence of the following irrelevant personal matters should be excluded” and the matters listed in the paragraph that follows include “nude pictures of Amber Heard”, “Amber’s brief stint as an exotic dancer years before she met Mr. Depp and Mr. Depp attempting to frivolously and maliciously suggest or imply that Ms. Heard was at one time an escort”.

The document now finds Johnny Depp as its target by portraying him as petty and playing dirty and the public once again finds itself divided over the issue as Johnny Depp’s supporters counter the unsealed documents with their own damning discoveries.

It’s the fact that Johnny Depp was trying to explain he’s been apologizing for everything since he was a kid and that he wants it to have a meaning.

The unsealed legal documents in the Johnny Depp V Amber Heard case are damning.
If she were a man she’d be locked up for what she did. Period.

The divided opinions on the internet have been swaying to and fro between supporting a man courageous enough to be vulnerable in the public eye and a woman whose voice is being silenced by a man who holds more sway over the public. Even as both sides fight it out, delivering a litany of reasoned arguments supporting each case, the socio-political impacts of the publicized trial have wreaked enough havoc among the present generation of social media influencers by concentrating their efforts on either mocking or praising either party while ignoring larger societal issues at stake.
