Summary

Cyabra, a disinformation monitoring platform, analyzed more than 2,300 Twitter profiles that have talked about the trial and found that 93 percent were in support of Depp.YouTube and TikTok didn't respond to questions posed in emails.“I think a huge part of it is due to the fact that Johnny Depp has a huge fan base already present, considering he’s one of the most famous actors in the world,” said Jas, 21, who runs TikTok and Twitter fandom accounts from Singapore that usually focus on superheroes and K-pop.Jas, who exchanged direct messages on the condition that her last name be withheld for privacy reasons, said her content about the trial is getting “way more attention” than anything else she posts, despite the sizable presence of K-pop and superhero fans on social media platforms.Depp is suing Heard for defamation in the U.S. alleging that she falsely stated that she is a victim of domestic violence in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed. Now, his videos about Depp and Heard have millions of views.“I did not expect to get this huge response from all over the world,” Ali said.
