Subject: BS: Depp
From: Steve Shaw
Date: 01 Jun 22 - 05:57 PM

I've never seen his films, I don't know who he is, I know even less about the woman involved, and I have no desire to increase my knowledge. I'm appalled at the BBC for making his court case the number one item on tonight's news. They seem to me to be a pair of useless celebrity shits. Do correct me if I'm wrong. There's a terrible war in Ukraine, there are dreadful human rights abuses going on in China, there is an horrendous cost of living crisis in my own country. Yet someone has decided that the most urgent and vital thing we should hear about is a spat between two spoiled brats who have so much money that they have decided to make lawyers rich by airing their filthy linen in public. I mean, gimme strength...

It's about domestic violence - USA Department of Justice

It's a vital (literally: it affects people's lives) issue for many people, mostly women, but sometimes men.

Yes this is a defamation case. No, she never reported to police or authorities any alleged domestic violence during her marriage. No she doesn't have any concrete evidence that the domestic violence was inflicted on her. After the fact she decided to talk about her allegations in a newspaper. It may or may not have happened as she alleged. She may have perpetrated some of the violence or bad behaviour on him. Who knows the truth? Neither of them reported the alleged incidents at the time.

It doesn't take away from the vital importance of taking domestic violence and bullying and coercive control seriously.

This is an actor who has ended up believing in his own publicity.
He goes around referring to himself as, amongst other things,
Captain Jack Sparrow.

That series of films -- Pirates of the Caribbean --
is what sent his career into a totally different orbit.
The first of the films was witty, and if I recall right,
for that one film Depp got a Best (Supporting??) Actor nomination at the Oscars.
Once Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom dropped that series,
I stopped watching the sequels,
Geoffrey Rush or no Geoffrey Rush.

Before Depp's career blasted off into outer space,
he had a wife and children and was a tolerably happy man.
Then she divorced him I think, quietly and sadly.

No doubt, Ms. Heard will appeal.

Helen, the jury didn't buy her claims or evidence.
Defamation is a normal reaction to baseless claims.
She is either a bad goldbricker or a secretly abused woman with no evidence or witnesses. The trial sort of defames them both. He gets 15 million from her and she gets 2 million from him?

Oh, I get it now. The jury found they both defamed each other, with Depp winning more money than Heard. I'm guessing because he lost more money than she did (but I don't know). I figure most people wish they could sue them, or the media, for shoving other people's personal issues in our faces. Maybe a class action suit or something. (snark)

I'd have thought the right thing would have been either reject both claims, or accept both claims with a dollar damages each way.

Judge Judy would have thrown both of the cases out. And probably both of the

Well I'm so glad that some of you are so knowledgable about this. I'm equally glad that I'm completely ignorant about it. If it's truly about domestic violence, then I'd like to suggest that we should really see that through the lens of the hundreds, thousands, millions of abused women whose stories are so "boring" that they never make the ten o'clock news. Not through the lens of a pair of brats whose publicity-seeking will only increase their public profiles, to their undoubted future benefit...

I enjoyed Depp's performance in "What's Eating Gilbert Grape".

Our news has the similar problem of airing celebrity nonsense instead of real news, and CBS earned my ire last week when in the midst of school shootings and war in Ukraine they had a significant segment where a female star opined about how motherhood had changed her life. Worse than the BBC IMO.

For the most part, the agonizing Depp/ Heard trial has been aired on Court TV, where it belongs. There are real issues involved, and it can get pretty 'down the rabbit hole' since it shows off the differences between UK law and US law regarding proving and deciding on defamation. I don't know how a jury decides between the countering testimony of two actors and competent representation. I couldn't imagine it as anything other than excruciating.

Trouble is ... things like this become news because they are "news" - i.e., once they receive a certain level of attention, that in itself makes them "news", whether they have any other import or not - and so then they receive more attention, which reinforces their "newsworthiness" ... etc. .... And, tbh, if you're watching news at least in part to be kept aware of what the issues and events are that the world is talking about, well, sadly, this is one of them .....

Btw, I heard in passing, on the news, that Heard had won some claim against Depp in a UK court - surprised it wasn't front-page news!

I've never actually watched "Gone With the Wind" all the way through.

Depp's done a huge number of movies, and has received good reviews in most of them. I enjoy his acting, but the personal stuff is, IMO, better left being personal. Seems like people need to divide up and take sides, even though they really don't know anything . Story of almost everything these days.

Because I don't watch films much, I wouldn't know Johnny Depp from a bull's foot. If I was halfway through a film and someone said to me, Hey! That's Johnny Depp! I'd keep watching. We all have our flaws, after all, and his might well be not as bad as mine for all I know... On the other hand, I won't allow myself to experience a Richard Wagner opera, because I know in advance that his horrid flaw is something I can't live with (in other words, he crosses my subjective red line).

As it happens, Johnny Depp films don't seem to be up my alley anyway...

Is Shane McGowan up your alley, Steve? Because,
had you seen the documentary "Crock of Gold,"
(I haven't, myself)
you would have seen extensive footage of a conversation
between Shane McGowan and Johnny Depp.

They have been fast friends for a number of years.
Before McGowan reunited with the Pogues,
when he was recording solo or with the Popes,
he did a song titled "Victoria" and there was a video for the song.
Featuring Johnny Depp, dancing with Victoria Mary Clarke,
who is now McGowan's lawfully wedded wife.

Well, there is more than one point of view regarding the lady.

Here's mine:
the stigmatization of mental illness.
Personal to me, as I am entering my third year of long-term residential psychiatric treatment for persistent depressive disorder. It's changing my financial status in a major way. And worth every darned cent.
If Amber Heard does indeed have a bona-fide diagnosis of borderline personality disorder, or something else, or what have you, stigmatizing her for it does nothing constructive in the long run, it's cheap and cruel and has consequences.
So, for heaven's sake, if she needs help, professional help, then she ought to have a right to get her mental health needs met, and everybody else ought to let her go ahead and do it without using her for target practice.
