Amber Heard Ranks Higher Than Vladimir Putin On Most Hated People List

Published

on

Amber Heard is on a list ranking the most hateful people living in 2021, even surpassing Vladimir Putin.

The Aquaman The star has been the target of endless scrutiny in recent months during her court battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp, and a listing from The Top Tens outlet lists Heard as more hated than the Russian president who made the war in Ukraine earlier this year.

The listing landed on Reddit where it sparked a conversation about Heard’s treatment on social media.

“Sorry, but that made me cry. Why is she more hated than a man who started a literal war for no apparent reason and commits war crimes on a daily basis?” reads one comment “This is so fucked up. This really is a witch hunt and f**k everyone who was on it.”

While another added: ‘People like having a woman to hate.

Heard’s representatives declined to comment on the list.

The actress came under intense scrutiny in the multimillion-dollar libel trial that ended with a jury finding she defamed Depp with real malice and awarded him more than $10 million dollars in libel damages following an op-ed she wrote in 2018 alleging she was a victim of domestic violence.

Throughout the trial, Heard was mocked relentlessly on social media by ardent Depp supporters, and his recent post-trial interview with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie saw the mockery continue.

Heard’s emotional testimony alleging she was punched by Depp has even been turned into a viral TikTok trend.

The onslaught of criticism Heard faced during her trial has even drawn comparisons to the public mockery Britney Spears faced during her own tribulations.

The discussion on Reddit about this list comes just days after a report emerged that Heard was subjected to intense trolling during the defamation lawsuit against Depp.

Findings from a report by Bot Sentinel, a nonpartisan group dedicated to discovering, exposing, and using online bots, revealed disturbing statistics about how Heard has been targeted on platforms like Twitter and TikTok during the trial.

“What we observed was one of the worst cases of cyberbullying and cyberstalking by a group of Twitter accounts that we have ever seen,” the report states, and notes that 627 accounts were created for the sole purpose of tweeting about the libel suit and about Heard and his supporters.

“The abuse and targeted harassment continued long after the Depp v. Heard lawsuit ended, and unless Twitter takes action, the abuse and targeted harassment will continue,” the report said.

Heard has formally filed a motion to appeal the decision in the defamation lawsuit she lost to ex-husband Depp.

“And I know that sounds weird but hence I’m making this video to say things are looking up and I’m back online.

“Weird s*** is going to start being posted here.”

Chicago prosecutor drops sex abuse charges against R. Kelly

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx told reporters that her office believes “justice has been served” against Kelly, who has been convicted in federal court.

An Illinois prosecutor dropped 10 charges of sex abuse against the singer R. Kelly on Monday, saying the cost was one of the factors she weighed in her decision.

Kelly, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, is already serving a 30-year prison sentence on charges of federal racketeering and sex trafficking after he was convicted in New York last year.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx told reporters that her office believes “justice has been served” with the two convictions. She said her office’s “limited resources and court time” were the ultimate factors, noting that it found the accusations to be credible.

“Mr. Kelly is looking at the possibility of never walking out of prison again,” Foxx said.

Kelly is set to appear Tuesday in Cook County Court, where the charges will be formally dropped. The state has accused Kelly of sexually abusing four people, three of whom were minors.

Foxx announced the state’s case in 2019, saying the incidents occurred from May 1998 to January 2010. Kelly had faced three to seven years in prison for each charge if he were convicted.

The women in the case were identified in the indictment only by their initials. Multiple women have come forward with allegations over the years.

Lifetime aired a six-part docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly,” in January 2019 in which multiple women alleged Kelly subjected them to mental, physical and sexual abuse. Foxx urged potential victims to come forward to speak with her office about possible criminal activity after the series.

Foxx said Monday that she consulted with the women in the indictment before she decided to drop the charges, acknowledging that some might be disappointed.

“I know firsthand how difficult it is for you to tell your stories,” Foxx said. “Four years ago, I stood at this podium and shared my story of having been a survivor and my full understanding of what it means to have to go before strangers to discuss what is arguably one of the most horrific experiences one could have. And these women, all of them Black, came forward, believing that they would be heard.”

Kelly also faces state charges in Minnesota, where he has been accused of soliciting a minor for sexual purposes and engaging in prostitution with a minor.

In the New York case, Kelly was convicted on nine counts of racketeering and sex trafficking. Jurors found that he set up a criminal enterprise that enabled him to recruit and transport underage girls for sex.

Months later in Chicago federal court, he was convicted on six counts of sexual exploitationand enticement of a minor. He is scheduled to be sentenced on those charges Feb. 23.

Kelly’s attorneys have said he plans to appeal both federal convictions.
