Washington Post Adds Editor’s Note to Amber Heard’s 2018 Op-Ed After Johnny Depp Defamation Verdict

The Washington Post has added a proofreader’s note to the highest point of Amber Heard’s commentary about enduring homegrown maltreatment after the decision for the situation, brought by Johnny Depp, viewed the article as abusive.

On Wednesday, the jury gave over its decision, collectively verifying that Heard, 36, slandered her ex Depp, 58, three times in her commentary, which was distributed in December 2018. Depp’s name was not referenced in the article. The jury granted Depp $15 million in punitive fees, yet the appointed authority diminished that to $10.35 million because of state regulation in Virginia. Heard, who was granted $2 million in her criticism countersuit, plans to pursue the decision.

On Thursday, the advanced variant of Heard’s commentary became altered with a manager’s note that peruses: “In 2019, Johnny Depp sued Amber Heard for slander emerging out of this 2018 commentary. On June 1, 2022, following a preliminary in Fairfax County, Va. Circuit Court, a jury found Heard at risk on three counts for the accompanying assertions, which Depp guaranteed were bogus and slanderous: (1) ‘I opposed sexual savagery — and confronted our way of life’s fury. That needs to change.’ (2) ‘Then quite a while back, I turned into a well-known person addressing homegrown maltreatment, and I felt the entirety of our way of life’s fury for ladies who stand up.’ (3) ‘I had the uncommon vantage purpose in seeing, progressively, how organizations safeguard men blamed for misuse.’ The jury independently tracked down that Depp, through his legal counselor Adam Waldman, stigmatized Heard in one of three includes in her countersuit.”

Lawful examiner, Emily D. Dough puncher tells PEOPLE she believes it’s a “savvy move” for The Washington Post to add a supervisor’s note as opposed to erasing the article from the site through and through: “On the grounds that this case is so watched and remarked on, I think the commentary is as yet required for setting. I value that they set up the notification instead of bringing the commentary down. What’s more, I value that they included, with particularity, the very explanations that were viewed as disparaging.”

“It would have been more straightforward to simply bring it down and say nothing. Yet, I value they’re saying, ‘Anybody who’s understanding this, this occurred,’ ” added Baker.
