Over the past few days, #JusticeForJohnnyDepp has been trending on twitter after leaked audio came out in which Amber is heard confessing to her physical and emotional abuse of then-husband, Johnny Depp. After a few days of silence, Amber is speaking out about the tapes.
“They were deepfaked,” she said in her tweets about the incident, “fabricated audio to make me look bad. If you listen closely you can tell that they swapped my voice with Depp’s. Every threat you hear was actually the threats he made to me, but in reverse.”
Commenters immediately pointed out how little sense her statement made, as well as acknowledging that even if that were the case, some of the threats don’t translate. “What about the audio where you try to play off your aggression as “being on your period”? Are you saying that the original audio was coming from Johnny Depp’s mouth?” commented user BendyStraw149344. Amber reportedly blocked the user on Twitter.
Amber also sent out a followup tweet, expressing frustration that news outlets would be so quick to believe a measly one hour of abusive audio. “I’m just so upset that people are trying to flip this around on me. I did not abuse my husband, and if you keep saying I did, I’m going to beat the shit out of you.”
The couple married in 2015 and divorced two years later despite Amber Heard ordering Depp not to.
