• Twitter users say Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's domestic violence issue is not a mutual abuse
  • Amber Heard confessed she hit Johnny Depp
  • Johnn Depp said Amber Heard had a history of domestic abuse as perpetrator not victim

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s domestic violence battle is not “mutual abuse,” Twitter users say.

A few weeks back, a recording of Heard confessing that she hit her ex-husband and started the physical fight leaked. She even taunted Depp to tell the world that he was the victim and see if the world would believe that a man like him would be abused by a woman like her.

Following the leakage of the recording, some online users reacted that it was mutual abuse. Depp and Heard were just the same. However, several online users reacted and slammed the “mutual abuse” claims as they fight for justice for Depp.

“Amber Heard abused Johnny Depp, she literally admit that in her audio tapes, yet some of you trolls say it is a mutual abuse, in what parallel reality you guys are living in? The woman AMBER HEARD admit it; her trolls refuse to believe her in her own words,“ @KXIX94 wrote on Twitter.

"Mutual abuse is a contested theory. Many experts don't believe it exists. Johnny Depp cannot mutually abuse Amber Heard- She admitted to starting the physical fights. Anything he did to get away from her would be self defense. Stop harming survivors,” @LayniLaCroix added.

“Amber told Johnny Depp that every single time they have an argument even before things get physical, he leaves. Even when it was just words he leaves. In her words, every single time, you split. This is not mutual abuse because he leaves and that is why she was angry,” @theresa_sparrow opined.

Comedian and actor Arthur Chu also shared his piece about the issue. In his personal opinion, it was not a mutual abuse because if one would listen to the hour long tape of Heard and Depp’s counseling session or just read the transcript “it is very difficult to come away with the impression on him being the abuser or ‘mutual abuse.’”

Meanwhile, another user believed that the issue was interpreted as “mutual abuse” because the perpetrator was a woman. Another user said that at the time, she only considers Depp the "legit victim" because Heard had no evidence against her ex-husband to support her domestic abuse claims.

“Baseless accusations is nothing against almost 80 evidences Johnny Depp has against Amber Heard. But what do u know,according to #Metoo it's okay as long as the perpetrator is a woman, when it is a woman, the whole case magically turns into a "mutual abuse,” @KXIX94 wrote.

Depp said in a court document that Heard had a history of domestic violence not as a victim but perpetrator. The “Aquaman” star assaulted her ex-girlfriend Tasya van Ree in 2009 which led to his arrest.
