Ireland Baldwin has berated Amber Heard as the actress and her ex-husband Johnny Depp are facing each other in a Virginia court. Taking to her Instagram Story, which seemed to have disappeared now, the 26-year-old posted a picture of a tweet about the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star’s reaction to an audio in which Heard apparently confessed to striking him.

Baldwin said: “The thing is, I know women who are exactly like this. They are manipulative and cold and they use their very womanhood to play victim and turn the world against the man because we live in a society where it's cool to say men are all the worst and blah blah f***ity blah.”

The model went on to say, “Men can experience abuse too and this absolute disaster of a human being Amber Heard is a terrible person and I hope Johnny gets his reputation and his life back,” before adding: “And I hope he's in like 5 Pirates movies.”

Depp and Heard are back in court because of a 2018 op-ed which the ‘Aquaman’ actress wrote for The Washington Post. In that, she called herself a domestic violence survivor and noted: “Like many women, I had been harassed and sexually assaulted by the time I was of college age. But I kept quiet — I did not expect filing complaints to bring justice. And I didn’t see myself as a victim. Then two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out.”

She had not named Depp in the essay but the actor’s legal team believed it was targeting him. They then sued Heard for $50 million in 2019 and in retaliation, the 35-year-old sued him demanding $100 million. During the trial, Depp has insisted that he had never physically assaulted his ex-wife, contrary to what she had claimed. He said: “Never did I reach the point of striking Ms. Heard. Never have I struck any woman in my life.”

Meanwhile, people on Twitter seemed in favor of Depp and also applauded Baldwin’s take on Heard. A user tweeted, “I am going to take a wild guess that this young woman recognizes narcissism and it’s devastating impact on narc prey. Sending Ireland, along with Johnny, much love, compassion and support.” The second user wrote: “Let's just be thankful people are speaking up. A lot of people haven't followed this the way we have and they're hearing all this for the first time due to the trial.  I'll happily accept any support for Johnny. #JusticeForJohnnyDepp.” “Ireland is absolutely correct. #JusticeForJohnnyDepp #AmberHeardIsAnAbuser,” the third user noted.

A tweet read: “Heard is hideous! Imagine cutting off the tip of your partner and then proceeding to put a lit cigarette out on his cheek! Battered women run, they don’t chase, hunt, and keep pursuing. She insults anyone who truly was abused, like Johnny.” Another tweet added: “Finally Hollywood is turning against Amber instead of siding with her. But this couldn't have happened years ago. It's the same like Harvey Weinstein, Hollywood protects and defends monsters, but until their's criminal investigations to call it out, they turn against the monster.”
