Viral Twitter Thread Shows Why Amber Heard And Johnny Depp Trial Is More Straightforward Than You Think

The Johnny Depp and Amber Heard defamation trial has become a divisive talking point on social media — to the extent that people are harassing and threatening those who have divergent opinions.

Most of the harassment has come from very intense Depp fans, who flood social media accounts — many of them bots.

Vice did an enlightening piece showing readers how The Daily Wire, a conservative media outlet, has spent thousands of dollars promoting misleading anti-Amber Heard articles and one-sided videos and memes mocking a woman who alleges she suffered domestic violence.

But it’s not just conservative media. Journalist and podcast host Michael Hobbes raised some interesting questions about coverage in general, and his thread went viral.

“I’ve noticed a weird reluctance on the part of liberal journalists to assess the evidence in the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard trial. The right has spent weeks screaming ‘she’s lying!’ and so far, the left has responded with ‘it’s complicated!’ It’s not. Let’s take a look,” the user writes.
