Actor Johnny Depp took advantage of the impact of his trial and the amount of attention received to join the TikTok social network. From there, he dedicated his first post to fans. And it is that the protagonist of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise thanked his faithful followers for their support after his legal victory against his colleague and ex-wife Amber Heard.
This June 7, according to People magazine, he arrived on the platform surpassing 8 million followers in just a few hours. Not bad!
@johnnydepp < p>To all of my most treasured, loyal and unwavering supporters. We’ve been everywhere together, we have seen everything together. We have walked the same road together. We did the right thing together, all because you cared. And now, we will all move forward together. You are, as always, my employers and once again I am whittled down to no way to say thank you, other than just by saying thank you. So, thank you. My love & respect, JD ♬ Stranger – Love Joys
The gift of popularity
In turn, during the trial against Heard, Depp’s Instagram profile experienced an increase of 7 million followers, according to the site El Periódico. In total, it currently exceeds 24 million followers in the aforementioned app.
“To all my adored, loyal and loving followers. We have been here together, we have seen it all together, we also walked the same path and did the right thing, all because you cared. Now, we’ll turn the page. You are, as always, the ones who give me work and again I say thank you, thank you, thank you. With all my love and respect, JD”, this is what Kate Moss’s ex wrote in the description of her post.
Furthermore, in the video with which the actor of “Transcendence” and “Mortdecai” premiered his expansion on social networks, you can see images of fans supporting the aforementioned with cheers and banners outside the courthouse in Fairfax, Virginia , while he is facing away from his vehicle.
Likewise, Johnny Depp also showed some images of his musical performances on stage with his friend and colleague Jeff Beck.
Let us remember that it was last week when the acclaimed artist won three accusations of defamation in the case against his ex-partner and a jury awarded him 15 million dollars out of 100 in damages. Heard will only have to pay him $10.35 million due to a Virginia law that limits punitive damages, People noted. In the meantime, he will have to pay her 2 million green in damages.
