Johnny Depp’s former lawyer Adam Waldman was brought in as the witness at the ongoing defamation trial against Amber Heard on Thursday, May 19. Waldman made headlines way back in 2020 when he was dropped from Depp’s legal team after he leaked confidential information concerned with Amber Heard.
 
Social media expert Ron Schnell claimed that move apparently led to a spike in the use of hashtags like ‘#Justiceforjohnnydepp’ and ‘#amberheardisanabuser’ in the same year. Apart from getting thrown off the case by Judge Bruce White, Adam Waldman was also mocked by Amber Heard. Johnny Depp’s former lawyer once again picked up the heat on the Internet after he was grilled by Amber’s lawyers. In the latest, Adam Waldman claimed that 29 eyewitnesses could 'disprove' Heard's claims.

Waste of time.” One user concluded, “The social media expert was terrible and really did a lot of damage to her case.
