More than a month after the Heard/Depp verdict, the professional haters just won’t let Amber Heard go

During the Amber Heard/Johnny Depp defamation trial, videos taking aim at Heard filled up Tik-Tok and YouTube. Some posted them because they genuinely hated Heard; others jumped in because they knew money could be made off the vast audience clamoring continually for more Heard content.

Well, it’s been more than a month since the verdict in the case came down; Heard lost. But her haters on YouTube just can’t seem to quit her.

Here’s a tiny collection of Amber Heard videos that have gone up on YouTube in the last several days. There are dozens, if not hundreds of them, some with hundreds of thousands of views.

Even the thrift store video has gotten more than 100 thousand views in the five days it’s been up. Even though she wasn’t in a thrift store but rather shopping at TJ Maxx.

Meanwhile, fans of Marilyn Manson (who knew there were any of these left) are talking about turning “Westworld” actor Evan Rachel Wood, who has accused Manson of rape and abuse, into “Amber Heard 2.0.” MAGA types fantasize about giving Jan 6. commission star witness Cassidy Hutchinson the “Amber Heard 2.0” treatment because she testified to things they really didn’t want to hear.

What this is really like is Gamerrgate 2.0; it’s the same nasty tactics, the same sort of obsession, that we saw directed at former Gamergate bete noires like Anita Sarkeesian and Zooey Quinn, just on a larger scale.

I suspect Amber Heard is going to have a long career as an internet punching bag. Once the Great Internet Lady Hating Machine picks out a target, they tend to fixate on them for years to come. Amber Heard is going to be Amber Heard 2.0.

@Surplus of Requirements, If you were referring to her treatment on social media, I never said that she deserved it. However, I hope we can agree to disagree about the trial’s verdict.

@Acid Katrina, Your name links to an MRA site. So no, I’m not interested in what you have to say, regardless of who’s “side” you are on.

Don’t interact. Acid makes you regret offering human kindness.

Regardless of the outcome the judge’s decision to *live stream a trial with rape and domestic abuse allocations* was a horror.
That judge should be disbarred.
It was a hideous decision.
And the judge talked to the media during the trial about her performance and how she appeared.
Repulsive.
