A number of people have come forward to support Johnny Depp against allegations of abuse from his wife, Amber Heard. The accusations are disturbing, and not many are willing to publicly acknowledge the possibility that an actor as well-known and beloved as Depp could be capable of domestic violence.
This includes others in Depp’s own family. On Sunday, Lily-Rose Depp posted a few images to Instagram in support of her dad and in definite dismissal of Amber Heard:
The caption reads:
My dad is the sweetest most loving person I know, he’s been nothing but a wonderful father to my little brother and I, and everyone who knows him would say the same
This post has no caption:
While the testimony of family members can’t be entirely disregarded, it is common enough for someone to be violent with some people and not with others. Unfortunately, character references will not resolve the conflict between Heard and Depp.
