Don't point the finger at her, your Honor!
The video emerged just a day before Heard was scheduled to be deposed in her legal battle with Depp.
In the video released on Friday, the action ends abruptly when Depp realizes that Amber is recording his tantrum on her phone. The last things we hear him saying is:
You want to see crazy? I'll show you crazy!
In addition to the picture of the finger, TMZ also posted a picture of a mirror on which Depp has allegedly written the names of Amber's suspected paramour, Billy Bob Thornton. (!!!)
It is know that Depp needed surgery on his finger but the story was that he injured himself on a film set in Australia.
Let's review the issues at hand here.
Johnny Depp has a temper. We can see it in the video.
But we don't see him getting physical with Heard.
We do hear her goading him, in an exaggeratedly innocent 'who-me?' little girl voice.
If Amber didn't release the video, who did?
It's safe to say that the couple had a turbulent relationship. From all accounts, this is business as usual for Heard.
Depp's ex wife and friends insist that it is not his nature to be violent.
Amber Heard wants money. She wants a lot of it, and Johnny has a lot of it.
But after 14 months of marriage, what is a fair amount of money for Amber?
And why does she continue to use the press to indict her estranged husband?
Call me impartial, but a woman who goads a man into flipping out and then records him going berserk is not a person to be trusted.
It suggests a scheme, at the very least.
Just as a man making a secret sex tape of his lover, a woman recording a temper tantrum (that doesn't involve any harm done to her) is out of order and demonstrating poor character.
Poor Johnny. Amber seems like a gift that won't stop giving until the price is right.

Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
25 years ago, pop stars and rappers were were expected to stay in their respective lanes. But Mariah Carey proved that hip-hop and pop were a match made in heaven—changing popular music as we know it.
Hip-Hop is pop—not in sound, but rather in terms of influence and authority.
Certainly pure pop—pasteurized and whipped into its ultimate peak in the early 2010s—is still breathing, though despite its name, the genre's reign as the chieftain of popular music has ended.
Drake and Bad Bunny are as much of pop stars in 2020 as Carly Rae Jepsen and Kesha were in 2012. Spotify reports that, at this very moment, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's "WAP" is the most-streamed song in the United States. Immediately following that is trap-pop cut "Mood," a TikTok-famous summer bop by 24kGoldn and Iann Dior, two of many rising zoomer rappers who have embraced Hip-Hop's guidance in most melodic forms, like trap-pop, emo rap, alternative hip-hop, and pop-rap. And if that's not enough to give Hip-Hop a throne, Nielsen Music has confirmed that eight of the top 10 artists of 2020 so far are, of course, rappers.
