British TV presenter Rachel Riley appeared to take sides with Amber Heard in the ongoing court battle between the actress and her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.
Riley, who stars on the British show “Countdown,” shared a Twitter thread outlining Depp’s “problematic history,” including some of the damaging texts the actor wrote about his ex-wife that have come to light during their defamation trial.
“I wouldn’t wish this guy on my worst enemy,” Riley said on Twitter.
Depp is suing Heard, claiming she ruined his career by insinuating he physically abused her in a 2018 op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post. Heard is counter-suing, alleging Depp assaulted her on 10 occasions throughout their relationship.
Depp fans have taken over Twitter and TikTok, posting memes and jokes about lawyers’ questions in a crusade to clear Depp’s name from abuse accusations.
Meanwhile, trends mocking Heard’s testimony have gone viral on TikTok, prompting domestic violence experts to worry about a chilling effect that may prevent survivors from telling their stories in the future.
As the trial plays out in court and on social media, support for Heard has trickled out from some stars. Big names like Kathy Griffin and Julia Fox are among the notable figures who have publically expressed support for Heard.
Depp has garnered the public support of exes and former co-stars alike, including Winona Ryder, Javier Bardem, Penélope Cruz, and Vanessa Paradis, among others.
