Amber Heard Pens Powerful Letter About Domestic Violence

Amber Heard Pens Powerful Letter About Domestic Violence

Amber Heard penned an open letter to victims of domestic abuse after she went through her divorce from Johnny Depp.

“You are not alone. You may have suffered alone behind closed doors, but you are not alone. You need to know that. I want to remind you of your strength, a strength that has been multiplied by the number of women who stand silently behind you—a truth that allowed me to break down the doors I once found myself behind,” Amber wrote for Porter.

“Let’s start with the truth—the cold, hard truth. When a woman comes forward to speak out about injustice or her suffering, instead of aid, respect and support, she will be met with hostility, skepticism and shame. Her motives will be questioned and her truth ignored…It’s no wonder so many of us feel we have to keep quiet or risk our own safety to try to maintain our dignity by quietly enduring,” Amber continued.

“As I write this today, I can promise every woman who is suffering in silence, you are not alone. You may not see us, but we are there,” she added.

Amber and Johnny settled their divorce and domestic violence case months ago. She has since starred in a domestic violence PSA.

    Amber Turd Heard, do the world a favor and don’t wake up tomorrow morning.

  • Wendy

    Did you send that to your ex that you beat up, Amber? Because I’m sure she would probably laugh at the thought of you being a victim when you’re an abuser yourself.

  • Sansa Squad

    this is really powerful and I applaud her strength. good for her. *ducks away to avoid the deluge of d*pp defenders justjared is clearly exploiting for clicks/page hits with stories like this*

  • LittlePaperStars

    Not every woman, Amber, Rihanna wasn’t met with skepticism, maybe it’s you? A good 50% or so of that letter is her taking a swipe at people who don’t believe her.

  • Jezza

    Whatever. Did you tell you’re ex that she is not alone in being abused after you beat her? You’re a hypocrite. You were only in this for Johnny’s money and fame.

  • Sabrina

    Same goes for you.

  • Sabrina

    How do you know she beat her ex?

  • Sabrina

    How do you know she “beat up” her ex?

  • Jezza

    Because she was arrested for it in 2009.

  • Sabrina

    No, she wasn’t. The report says she was arrested for “grabbing Tasya’s arm” and Tasya herself said the incident was misinterpreted.

  • Willy Billy

    Actually, she was arrested and Tasya lied and got called out by the gay police officer.

    “Officer Beverly Leonard was the actual arresting officer. She proudly posted pics of herself and her partner a few years back. She’s also posted pics of herself at Pride weekend.

    Leonard also supported an organization in Seattle that helps women who were victims of domestic violence.

    A source close to Beverly says the now-retired officer is indignant … saying the arrest had nothing to do with homophobia … she was arrested for breaking the law.

    Although Tasya claims the incident was minor, police documents show there was actual property damage … Tasya’s pendant was broken during the scuffle, and the documents also show Tasya was extremely upset with Amber for the alleged attack … so claim the responding cops.”

  • Willy Billy

    And for you.

    thoughts on h*ard’s arrest for domestic violence against a woman?

  • Willy Billy

    There was no “domestic violence case,” there was a temporary restraining order that wasn’t hard to get.

  • Wendy

    Applaud her strength except for the fact that she never actually filed a police report. Doing great things.

  • Torii Wehling

    Amber,you’ve had your15 minutes of fame. Scrape yourself off the concrete and and creep back into your hole

  • Fabian

    If Amber is so dedicated to this cause then why the hell didn’t she file charges against JD and send him to jail? Even if she had lost the case, I still would have massive respect for her for at least trying. She just seems desperate to hold on to some sort of spotlight even now.

    Oh PLEEEZE!!! Not only is she a big, fat LIAR and was never abused by anyone but…does anyone really believe she wrote this??? She doesn’t have the education, intelligence or attention span to write this or anything else but a ransom note.

    That’s just what a victim would say…she was covering for Amber and btw…there were marks on Tashya’s neck, too. The judge took it very seriously and put her on a 2 year probation and said she would serve a sentence if it ever happened again. He only let her go because both of them lived in CA. Stop trying to sweep this very serious incident under the rug. You keep allowing her to victimize victims.

  • Sweet_Fart_Deal

    Can’t understand the fuss about this woman she is as plain as vanilla ice cream. Not to mention a lying tramp.

  • Sweet_Fart_Deal

    Go away Grubb.

  • Sweet_Fart_Deal

    You don’t get arreated just for grabbing a persons arm, you idiot. You seem to think because she is a woman she should be given a free pass to behave any which way she pleases… Aslo Tasya is scared of her abuser so was probably made to say that out of fear.

  • janiedoeie

    The letter and attention she is getting is another slap in the face for those who have really been abused.
