  • Amber Heard admitted to hitting ex-boyfriend Johnny Depp
  • Twitter users call for justice for the actor
  • Amber Heard also had a relationship with Elon Musk

Amber Heard admitted to hitting Johnny Depp and Twitter users are asking for justice.

Heard filed for divorce from Depp in 2016 claiming that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star beat her during their 18-month marriage. However, in an audio tape obtained by Daily Mail, it turned out that the “Aquaman” actress physically abused her ex-husband, too.

Heard confessed to “pelting” Depp with pots, pans and vases. “I’m sorry that I didn’t, uh, uh, hit you across the face in a proper slap, but I was hitting you, it was not punching you. Babe, you’re not punched,” Heard said. She added that she didn’t know the motion of her hand and insisted that she did not hurt or punch Depp but “I was hitting you.”

Twitter users immediately reacted and they called for justice for Depp. Many also called Heard a “sociopath.”

“Amber needs to be jailed #JusticeForJohnnyDepp,” one wrote.

“I literally don't give a single f—k about anything else right now. This man has been one of my favourite actors since I was a child. He is a amazing human being that got married to a demon, she ruined his career. #JusticeForJohnnyDepp , @TheC0micBookGuy added.

Another Twitter user claimed that aside from hitting Depp which Heard admitted, she also sliced off his finger, burned his face with cigarette, spat on him, withheld his medication and almost killed him. The online user concluded that Depp could have died at Heard’s hands.

A different user claimed that his wife worked on “Pirates of the Caribbean” and the crew were told that he had a “go-karting accident” and hurt his finger. But it turned out that Heard “cut it off with a vodka bottle.” The online user also praised Depp for giving everyone on the crew solid silver pirate rings, which his wife cherishes. 

Heard also had a relationship with Elon Musk, but they broke up in 2017. The pair kept their romance low-key and private. Following their split, Heard said that she wanted to remain more quiet because they still cared deeply for one another and remained close.
