Fans have been praising Dior for always standing by Johnny Depp in the midst of his defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard.
As we all know by now, Depp launched a defamation lawsuit against Heard in 2019, after the Aquaman star described herself as a victim of domestic abuse in a 2018 article she penned in The Washington Post. The trial started Monday 11 April in Fairfax, Virginia.
Both Disney and Warner Bros. have blacklisted the actor after Heard’s accusations. According to Depp, allegedly false accusations were made against him and have cost him his roles as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and as Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.
However, the hashtag #ThankYouDior has been trending online as the luxury fashion house has maintained its relationship with Depp, including continuing to use promotional material of the actor to advertise his own fragrance, Sauvage.
One fan took to Twitter to write:
“It’s sad when you have to start boycotting things you love because people wanna judge before they gets the facts. At least I can forever be grateful for Dior,”
