Eve Barlow has been one of the few voices defending Amber Heard amidst the wave of hatred that the actress has received online during the defamation trial between her and Johnny Depp. The music journalist has now spoken out against the attacks leveled at her by Depp stans.

Barlow has been called Heard's "rock" as the trial unfolded. While she began attending the trial in person, she was barred from the courtroom after it emerged she was texting and tweeting during the live proceedings. The 36-year-old has been subjected to online abuse for her steadfast defense of the 'Aquaman' star, and she is now wondering why Depp has "never once told his fans to stop being abusive" towards her.

"Whatever I post attracts 1000s of comments calling me ugly, misgendering me, accusing me of profiteering, lying and gold-digging, telling me I deserve to be beaten and/or raped, wishing death upon me, my family & friends," Barlow tweeted on Saturday, June 11. "Depp has never once told his fans to stop being abusive."
 
 "The main gripe they seem to have, however, is that we keep posting," she wrote in another tweet. "That's the harm. They want us to shut up. They want us to not speak. They want to take away our voice. This trial might be the first to be determined by social media. A true failure of justice," she added.

The post sparked a wave of reactions on Twitter.

"A) how do you know it's Depp Fans B) how do you cope with reading 1000s of messages a day? C) haven‘t seen @realamberheard telling her fans to stop needless attacks. So serious question: why is it only 1 side that needs to behave? Should being civil not be a common goal?" one asked.

"@Eve_Barlow These are extremists NOT fans. Just as I’m sure those attacking Depp aren’t Amber’s responsibility (exactly why she’s not told them to stop). The response to #DeppvHeard and the evidence of Heard abusing Depp and lying about being a victim has upset millions of people," another wrote.

"It's not Johnny Depp's responsibility to clean up your mess publicly. He's busy moving forward. @Eve_Barlow doesn't allow comments on her Twitter account. And she's dramatically overexaggerating the illegal death threats she collects on Instagram. The lying will never stop," someone else added.

It's worth noting that Barlow has previously attacked Heard's many opponents, including women who accused her of lying about being mistreated by Depp during their rocky marriage. She also slammed a TikTok trend mocking Heard's testimony about the alleged assault. "Listen, anyone protecting the TikTok abuse of Amber Heard is acting in bad faith," the journalist tweeted on May 9. "You can't argue that it doesn’t have a chilling effect on survivors from coming forward. Anyone actively mocking testimony about abuse is contributing to that silencing. Period."

As mentioned, Barlow was banned from attending the trial after she broke the court's official rules by texting and tweeting during the proceedings. Only Depp and Heard's legal teams were authorized to use their cell phones inside the courtroom. Court transcripts obtained by Page Six noted how Judge Penny Azcarate announced Barlow’s dismissal from the courtroom. “She was tweeting live from my courtroom… and I know the deputies took her out because she was texting," the judge said. "That’s against the court order. Ms. Barlow is not coming back into the courtroom during this trial.” Other sources also confirmed the incident to the publication. “Amber had her closest journalist friend sit front and center — with her legal team — at the trial, live-tweeting, texting, and posting information. Eve Barlow seems to think she’s part of Amber’s legal team. Depp’s lawyers finally had enough and had her barred from the courtroom," they said.

The insiders also said Barlow had been “inseparable” from Heard for the past year. Aside from defending Heard in public, she reportedly even attempted to intervene in the trial over Depp's witness Gina Deuters. Barlow was also slammed when she mocked Depp's onstage performance with guitarist Jeff Beck prior to the trial verdict.

The music journalist was previously associated with National Music Express (NME). She grew up in Giffnock, Glasgow, and is currently based in Los Angeles, California. Barlow is the daughter of George Barlow, who is a Member of the Order of the British Empire with the National Health Service. She had previously said that her father influenced her to develop her love for music by raising her with the music of Elvis Presley. She has often been photographed alongside Heard and her daughter Oonagh Paige Heard.
