Johnny Depp's legal team celebrate after winning defamation case
As the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial has concluded, fake GoFundMe accounts created for the pair are having to be shut down.
After Depp won the defamation case against Heard leaving her with a $10.35 million dollar bill to pay him, fake GoFundMe accounts were set up to allegedly help Heard pay Depp as her attorney remarked that her client couldn’t afford to.
One particular campaign was set up by someone claiming to know Heard’s legal team and was attempting to raise $1 million.
In the wake of Heard’s attorney’s comments, the fake campaigns have sprung up from people hoping to make an easy buck, but they are being removed by the fundraising site.
Some GoFundMe accounts have been set up with titles such as, “Justice for Amber Heard” and “Help Amber Heard Pay Off Johnny Depp”.
One description read: “I believe Amber and social media protected the abuser. If you can please help her.
“She will have direct access to the money. I also contacted her attorney so they can loop her in.”
