Michele Dauber, a Stanford Law professor, has been slammed for mocking Johnny Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez. Dauber accused Vasquez of "sucking up to male power" and being "desperate" in a couple of scathing tweets.

"In a society that strips women of real power, some women have learned to seek male approval in the hopes they won't be raped or abused or humiliated. Sucking up to power might feel good to you but it won't work. You will be next," Dauber, who is openly pro-Amber Heard, tweeted on June 2.

Dauber wrote with a screenshot of Vasquez, "Of all the women who suck up to male power, women lawyers are the absolute worst of the bunch. Desperate to prove they are 'real lawyers' and understanding that being a woman undermines their identity as lawyers, they throw women under the bus as hard and fast as they can." Vasquez became an internet sensation during the weeks-long defamation trial between Depp and Heard, which was ruled in favor of Depp.

Clips of the star attorney grilling Heard on the stand after the actress' testimony went viral on social media. From fan art and video edits to messages of appreciation, Vasquez was a huge hit on the Internet. Meanwhile, netizens were quick to slam Dauber and call out her comments against the lawyer. One user wrote, "I see some jealousy towards an attractive young powerful strong intelligent talented and successful lawyer here..."

Another commented, "I'm sorry, Michele, I thought we understood that everyone is entitled to quality counsel in matters of the law. Unless you believe women can't provide quality counsel. Maybe that's what you’re complaining about?" A third replied, "Obviously women need to get approval from Michele before they decide who to represent. Michele is the person who gets to decide all the choices for all other women, apparently." A fourth joked, "She can't hear you over her promotion."

While one user wrote, "Your jealousy of Camille Vasquez is beyond disturbing. In fact, after reading your timeline, I wonder if you are safe to be around," another tweeted, "Camille Vasquez is 10 times the woman you could ever be. She is who I want my daughter to aspire to be. You are who I caution my daughter not to be." A third added, "This is low down dirty & reeks of jealousy. Miss Camille Vasquez is a rock star. An absolute legend who should be studied & copied forevermore. She can't help that she is drop-dead gorgeous."

A fourth said, "How can this person be a professor at Stanford law with this discourse? Women are not real lawyers if they represent men? Did she see miss Vasquez in action? She was the best lawyer in the room." A fifth added, "@Stanford your professor has deep seeded hatred for women. She's unhinged and should not be allowed to teach anyone or anything." Another wrote, "This is a @Stanford law professor telling women that they are 'sucking up to male power' when they provide representation (you know, the thing that our constitution guarantees everyone is entitled to) to male clients. I'm not sure I've ever seen anything so blatantly sexist."

One user wrote, "Imagine sitting in a @Stanford class taught by this vile human being." Another felt, "@mldauber sit down somewhere! She did her job! #JohnnyDeppIsInnocent and his win spoke for those who have been afraid to speak! Stop attacking other women because you feel threatened! #CamilleVazquez is amazing!"

When one user said, "If your son was falsely accused of domestic violence, I bet you would love for that woman to help vindicate him," Dauber responded, "If my son was accused of DV he would have a lot more to worry about than some Pick Me Girl lawyer. But that isn't going to happen because I didn't raise a fucking rapist wife beater." She added, "When I say 'I did not raise a rapist wife beater' I am NOT in any way, by implication or otherwise, referring to Johnny Depp. I am speaking of ANY OTHER accused rapist wife beater than Depp. Not Depp, not talking about him."
