The Pirates of the Caribbean star received overwhelming support on social media platforms, including Twitter and TikTok, while Amber Heard was vilified.
Popular TikToks include Heard who claimed Depp had a ‘jar’ of cocaine, to which the Jack Sparrow actor joked to his lawyer, ‘A jar? A pot of dirt?’, referring to the Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
Other videos that have been viewed millions of times include montages of footage of Depp and his attorney Camille Vasquez allegedly flirting and getting intimate in court.

Fans were quick to joke that they would be drinking “mega pints” to celebrate the win for Depp, adding that they hoped the star would too.
It was a reference to a moment in the trial when Heard Depp’s lawyer asked if he’d had a “mega pint of red wine” before allegedly destroying his kitchen.
Depp said he poured himself a “large glass of wine” because he “thought it was necessary.”
One fan said, “Hope Johnny Depp is knee deep in megapints.”
Meanwhile, Twitter user John added: MEGAPINTS will be drunk tonight to celebrate.”
Although Heard claimed the outcome was a “setback” for women who were victims of domestic violence, social media users further ridiculed her.
Many said this was not a “setback” because it was only Heard that they didn’t believe.
Others scoffed at Amber Heard’s “tears” after the jury rejected her claims.

Fans of Johnny Depp burst into celebration after a jury awarded him $15 million in damages from his ex-wife Amber Heard at the conclusion of their defamation trial.
The jury said Heard and Depp defamed each other, but she defamed him more.
Though Depp was found guilty on some counts and had to pay Heard $2 million in damages, it was a clear courtroom victory for the Captain Jack Sparrow actor.
The actor was awarded $10 million in damages and $5 million in damages.
Heard won just one of her three counterclaims, which involved statements from Depp’s attorney suggesting that she and friends vandalized their apartment before calling the police.
She was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages of the $100 million she claimed in her counterclaim against her ex-husband and received zero dollars in punitive damages.
The judge later reduced Depp’s damages from $5 million to Virginia’s maximum of $350,000, bringing Depp’s total down to $10,350,000 — minus the $2 million he had to pay Heard.
Depp walks away from the case with $8.35 million.
