Some, like Candace Owens, are all for Depp’s triumph. Others are not on board, like Kathy Griffin, who called Depp a “bloated boozebag.” Heard herself has released a statement on the verdict, writing, “I’m heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence, and sway of my ex-husband.”She also wrote of the wider ramifications the verdict might have: “I’m even more disappointed with what this verdict means for other women. It is a setback. It sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated. It sets back the idea that violence against women is to be taken seriously.”[via]
