Johnny Depp's self-deprecating guest appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards has caused confusion, but also irritation. At least the sister of his ex-wife Amber Heard does not leave a good hair on the actor and those responsible for MTV on social media.
US actor Johnny Depp took on a special role at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) on Sunday. The actor's face was projected onto the helmet of the astronaut, who has been MTV's mascot for decades. "Hey, you know what? I needed the work," said the 59-year-old. So while he was joking, his ex-wife Amber Heard's sister didn't find the performance anything but funny.
Whitney Henriquez vented her anger via Instagram. In a story she wrote to the network, "MTV you guys are gross and clearly desperate! I really hope none of the people who made this call have daughters."
To do this, she published a screenshot of the MTV logo of the award ceremony and added a letter - this is how "DVMAS" can be read. She's obviously referring to domestic violence, because DVMAS is an acronym for "Domestic Violence Myth Acceptance Scale". She captioned the whole thing with a picture of her sister and the caption, "I stand by Amber Heard." The actress claimed to have been a victim of domestic violence during her marriage to Johnny Depp.
It was Johnny Depp's first TV appearance in a long time. In a short monologue he said that he could also be booked for birthdays. After the defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard, the Hollywood star now wants to revitalize his career. However, not all viewers were enthusiastic about Depp's performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, some were irritated on social media.
At the beginning of June, Johnny Depp won the lawsuit against his ex after around six weeks. Heard was sentenced to pay more than ten million dollars in damages. Depp has to pay her two million dollars again. The remaining 8.35 million was capped at five million due to local laws. Amber Heard has appealed the verdict.
