0

The Republicans have thrown their weight behind Johnny Depp by posting a video of the star as Captain Jack Sparrow just seconds after the jury verdict found that Amber Heard had defamed him.

The Republican House Committee on the Judiciary tweeted a GIF of Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow’s character, seconds after the jury found in the actor’s favor.

The Tweet had no words, but shows one of the first scenes where Sparrow made a seemingly triumphant entrance during the first film, Curse of the Black Pearl.

While the Tweet amassed nearly 10,000 likes on the social media platform, many were outraged that the official Twitter account posted it.

OOthers suggested that this will not change the mind of Depp, who has spoken out against Republicans in the past.

Johnny Depp won his libel case against Amber Heard, saying he has “his life back” after the jury found he had been defamed and awarded him $15 million.

In a statement following Wednesday’s ruling, Depp said: “Six years ago, my life, the lives of my children, the lives of those closest to me, as well as the lives of the people who for years have supported and believed in me were changed forever.

“And six years later, the jury gave me my life back. I’m really humiliated.’

After less than three days of deliberation, the jury ruled in favor of all three of Depp’s defamation claims against Heard, finding that she had falsely accused him of domestic violence.

The actor was awarded $15 million – $10 million in compensation and $5 million in punitive damages.

Heard won 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.

The 58-year-old was not present when the Virginia court ruled as he was touring the UK with guitar legend Jeff Beck. He was seen celebrating in a Newcastle pub last night with Beck and British singer Sam Fender.

Heard, meanwhile, walked into the court in a plain black dress and looked frightened. After the verdict was read, Heard briefly hugged her lawyers and then left the courtroom as Depp’s legal team gathered for a big group hug, clearly overjoyed with the jury’s decision.

‘The jury gave me my life back’: Johnny Depp’s full statement after libel win

Six years ago, my life, the lives of my children, the lives of those closest to me, as well as the lives of the people who supported me and believed in me for years, were changed forever.

All in the blink of an eye.

False, very serious and criminal charges were made against me through the media, leading to an endless barrage of hateful content, although no charges were ever brought against me. It had already circumnavigated the world twice in a nanosecond and it had a seismic impact on my life and career.

And six years later, the jury gave me my life back. I am really humiliated.

My decision to pursue this case, knowing the height of the legal hurdles I would face and the inevitable global spectacle in my life, was made after much thought.

From the very beginning, the aim of this case was to reveal the truth regardless of the outcome. Speaking the truth was something I owed to my children and to all who have stood firm in their support of me. I feel at peace in the knowledge that I have finally achieved that.

I am, and was, overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and the colossal support and kindness from all over the world. I hope that my quest to get the truth told has helped others, men or women, who are in my situation and that those who support them never give up. I also hope that the position will now once again be innocent until proven otherwise, both within the courts and in the media.

I want to acknowledge the noble work of the judge, jurors, court staff and sheriffs who sacrificed their own time to get to this point, and my diligent and unwavering legal team who have done an extraordinary job of helping me share the truth .

The best is yet to come and a new chapter has finally begun.

Veritas numquam perit.

Truth never dies.
