The $100 million defamation dispute between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has gripped the world, and now celebrities are taking sides. Jennifer Aniston followed the actor, 58, on Instagram on Thursday, May 5, according to Radar. The ‘Friends’ alum, 53, does not, however, follow Heard on the platform as of now.
Many users on social media reacted to it as one person wrote on Twitter, “♥️ Jennifer Aniston follows #JohnnyDepp And do you see who she doesn’t follow?” “This is BIG that Jennifer Aniston followed Johnny… she’s HUGE on equality, women’s rights, etc. she would NEVER follow him if she did not believe he is the victim!!” another user added.
Aniston isn’t the only Hollywood star who has backed the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor. Depp’s Instagram followers increased dramatically after he began appearing in a US court in a lawsuit involving Amber Heard. Salma Hayek, Zoe Saldana, and a slew of other celebrities have just started following him on social media. Earlier, Paul McCartney performed ‘My Valentine’ on Tuesday, May 3, with the music video featuring Depp playing in the backdrop.
On May 5, Heard, 36, testified against her ex-husband, revealing the alleged physical abuse she suffered at his hands. She stated in court, “My head was bleeding from the ripped out hair chunks of hair on the floor all over the place.” “I thought this is how I die. He is going to kill me and he won’t even have realized it … I just could hear myself scream until I couldn’t hear myself anymore. I could just hear him say he was going to kill me,” she added. Depp and his attorneys issued a statement following her dramatic testimony, alleging that she had been ‘giving the performance of her life’ on the stand in the Virginia courtroom.
