Johnny Depp’s lawsuit was against three defamatory statements given by Amber Heard in a piece in The Washington Post in December 2018. The first defamatory statement was the headline that stated "Amber Heard: I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture's wrath. That has to change"; the second defamatory statement by Heard that led to the suit was: "Then two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture's wrath for women who speak out"; and third defamatory statement, was "I had the rare vantage point of seeing, in real-time, how institutions protect men accused of abuse." Depp in fact claimed Amber was the abuser in the relationship however her false claims led to a serious decline in his career.
