For Johnny Depp, “no one is immune to cancel culture”

Johnny Depp does not disarm. “Boycotted” by Hollywood, the American actor posed as a victim of cancel culture, during a public intervention this Wednesday at the San Sebastian Festival, in Spain, where he had come to receive an award for his entire career.

In November 2020, the star of Pirates of the Caribbean lost his libel lawsuit against the tabloid The Sun who had described him as a “women slugger”, following accusations of domestic violence by his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard. In the process, he was ousted from the franchise Fantastic Beasts and has not toured since in Hollywood.

The various movements that have emerged, I am convinced with the best intentions, are now so out of control. – Johnny Depp

Responding to a question from a journalist, the 58-year-old actor denounced this “cancel culture or this tendency to make hasty judgment in haste based essentially on what is akin to exhaled polluted air“. According to him, “the various movements that have emerged, I am convinced with the best of intentions, are now so out of control that I can tell you that no one is immune“.

Johnny Depp does not intend to stop there since he has filed a new defamation complaint in the United States, this time directly against Amber Heard, following an opinion piece published by the Washington Post where she described herself as a survivor of “domestic violence”. The trial is expected to begin next spring.

I believe if you are armed with the truth this is all you need“, assured the actor Wednesday.”When there’s an injustice, whether it’s against you or someone you love, or someone you believe in, get up, don’t sit still. They need you.”
