When Amber Heard accused Johnny Depp of domestic violence, all of Depp’s exes came out and were like,”Wait, Johnny? Johnny Johnny?”. Everyone except Winona Ryder. That meant people found Ryder quotes from 25 years ago that, depending on which lens you happened to be looking through, totally meant Johnny Depp beat her. Ryder tells Time he didn’t.
I can only speak from my own experience, which was wildly different than what is being said. I mean, he was never, never that way towards me. Never abusive at all towards me. I only know him as a really good, loving, caring guy who is very, very protective of the people that he loves. It’s hard because I feel like—that’s my experience. And it’s been a very long time.
And since Winona Ryder deftly understands the hashtag world in which we now all live, attempted to make this an unproblematic as possible by saying her experience in no way represents Amber Heard’s.
I don’t know how you feel about it, but it’s like anybody who says anything about it is a victim-blamer. I wasn’t there. I don’t know what happened. I’m not calling anyone a liar. I’m just saying, it’s difficult and upsetting for me to wrap my head around it. Look, it was a long time ago, but we were together for four years, and it was a big relationship for me. And we have a lot of mutual friends. I just never heard anything like that about him.
And she felt the need to reiterate that point.
But, again, I feel like even saying that, I’m going to get death threats or something. I’m not on social media, so maybe I will be spared.
Nope. Not spared. Winona Ryder is just “another Johnny Depp ally”. We’re also told that Ryder’s experiences “aren’t relevant“. And we were also told that this was relevant. You can see how this can get confusing when we’re being told that this is indeed relevant. Either none of it is relevant or all of it is. Either Johnny Depp physically and mentally abused Amber Heard or he didn’t. Either Amber Heard is a manipulative gold digger or she’s not. Either I finish this post now or I don’t. I guess the only way we can stop talking about this is when Johnny Depp and Amber Heard talk under oath, which neither of them apparently seem to have any interest in doing. At this point, maybe Amber Heard should just put out an album then marry Chris Brown then put out another album. Then marry Comcast and put out another one. I would say then marry Harambe, but he’s dead. #RIP
