On May 2, Depp's talent agent Jack Whigham gave a video deposition. The talent agent talked about how much Depp was offered for Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and claimed that Heard's 2018 op-ed about "violence" was "catastrophic" for Depp's career.
Jack Whigham tried to answer the questions from 2016 and 2017. While answering the questions, he appeared demure, as you can see in the videos from the trial. However, Amber Heard's lawyer pushed the witness at some point, causing Depp's attorney to claim "harassment."
The objection came after Whigham stated that he could not recall whether he saw the Pirates of the Caribbean 6 contracts or recalled conversations he had with Disney.
Though the talent agent tried to explain how the whole process goes down, even stating that Depp would receive 22,5 million dollars for the role, he was not allowed. Amber Heard's lawyer Elaine Bredehoft received a significant backlash from the Youtube community.
The talent manager claimed that Depp was paid $10 million for Murder on the Orient Express, and around $13,5 million for Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald.
Depp was also paid around $8 million for the City of Lies. The actor received only $3 million for his role in the movie Minamata (2020).
Here is the video:
Among the comments, many argued that context matters, and some even went as far as saying, "Heard's lawyer is doing her more damage than good."
While this is not a popularity contest, others pointed out that the lawyer is not doing Amber any favors in the court of public opinion. You can read the best-rated comments below:
"This woman is very rude and annoying. Unbelievable."
"All truth is contextual. Depriving people of the ability to provide relevant context deprives them of the ability to speak the truth. This court process is an exercise in deceit. She's forcing the witness to lie while under oath. What an absurdity."
We will not add comments that are rude or insulting. These are the ones who question the objection that Depp's lawyer called "harassing a witness."
