Amber Heard DEMOLISHED By A TikTok Cat & The Media Demands Ban!

TheQuartering [5/10/2022]

According to Newsweek:

Emotional testimony from Amber Heard alleging she was hit by Johnny Depp has been turned into a viral TikTok trend.

An audio snippet from the current trial involving Depp and Heard has been repurposed on Twitter with over 18,000 people creating their own videos. The trend involves a slap being reenacted before someone “turns” away from their attacker and mouths along to “Johnny, you hit me. You just hit me.”

While the audio is being parodied on TikTok, some Twitter users have criticised those making light of domestic abuse. “Anyone actively mocking testimony about abuse is contributing” to silencing survivors, according to Heard’s friend Eve Barlow.

The current trial, which is taking a pause until Monday May 16, is taking place because Depp is suing Heard for $50 million, alleging defamation after she wrote a 2018 op-ed saying she was a victim of domestic abuse. Heard is countersuing for $100 million.

Videos with the audio dubbed over the top have been viewed and liked millions of times on TikTok already with the trend seemingly still on the rise.
