You all owe a big fucking apology to Johnny Depp. A man who was bullied, “canceled”, mocked, and abused for years while his abuser stood by and played victim. A man who almost lost his life while the woman he loved repeatedly abused, kicked, hit and berated him, calling him weak and mocking him for not fighting back. For not abusing her.
You all owe an apology to his children, Lily Rose and Jack, then-minors who were relentlessly bullied online for years and sent death threats when they defended their father. All the while, Amber was the abuser.
You owe an apology to his exes, who stood by him from the beginning and were ignored: Vanessa Paradis, Winona Rider, Sherilynn Fenn, Lori Anne Allison. All the while, Amber was the abuser.
You owe an apology to his friends and coworkers who sided with him, enduring years of online abuse: JK Rowling, Paul McCartney, Marylin Manson, Paul Bettany, Jude Law, Orlando Bloom, and Zoe Kravitz to name a few. All the while, Amber was the abuser.
Johnny Depp deserves better than for his story to be ignored because he is a man.
If you truly care about domestic violence and abuse, now would be a pretty fucking good time to show it.
CANCEL AMBER HEARD AND THROW HER IN JAIL.
shout out to ace and aro kids who are constantly bombarded with the opinion that sex and romantic love are directly connected to living a happy life.
Y’all are just reblogging this at the speed of sound tonight
Since it’s almost valentines day, and this message is about to get hammered in even more, reblogging this again.
“And I went white. I got up and went over and he said, ‘Oh God, you’re not sitting at that table, are you?’ It was exactly like bumping into an ex. Because it was really a bit like that, a love affair. He’d been my first director, and my favourite director and I… I was in love with him, like, I really liked him.”
Briony Tallis: I never made that journey to Balham. So the scene in which I confess to them is invented, imagined. And, in fact, could never have happened… because Robbie Turner died of septicaemia at Bray Dunes on the first of June 1940, the last day of the evacuation… and I was never able to put things right with my sister Cecilia… because she was killed on the 15th of October, 1940 by the bomb that destroyed the gas and water mains above Balham tube station. So, my sister and Robbie were never able to have the time together they both so longed for… and deserved. Which ever since I’ve… ever since I’ve always felt I prevented. But what sense of hope or satisfaction could a reader derive from an ending like that? So in the book, I wanted to give Robbie and Cecilia what they lost out on in life. I’d like to think this isn’t weakness or… evasion… but a final act of kindness. I gave them their happiness.
Joe Wright: It’s strange, because this is a film about happy endings, it’s about the purpose of happy endings. Happy endings — what is their role? What is the role of a happy ending? And I think in the end we decide that happy endings are important, they do serve a purpose, they do give us something to aspire to. Very noble, the human spirit. And I think that’s a very, very important purpose. Has this film gotten a happy ending? I’m not sure, I think it’s up to the audience. […] So here’s her testament to happy endings. I used to think that happy endings were a sign of weakness or evasion. And I’ve changed my mind since making Pride and Prejudice and certainly since making this film. Happy endings can be a sign of strength.
