JIM LO SCALZO/POOL/AFP via Getty Images After a jury in Northern Virginia found that Amber Heard had in fact defamed her ex-husband Johnny Depp, a few experts are saying her career could well be done in Hollywood.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor on Wednesday won big across the board after a six-week trial in which the actor had sued the actress for $50 million, while she countersued for $100 million. In the end, Heard was left with an $8.35 million bill to Depp, a ruling she has vowed to appeal.
Depp was effectively awarded $10.35 million for his suit, while Heard was awarded $2 million for hers.
“Experts have suggested that there is ‘no way back for Heard in Hollywood’ adding that the dramatic six-week court battle has left the actress, 36, ‘too icky for a studio,’ raising questions about her career and future earnings,” the Daily Mail reported .
Heard’s problems may widen well beyond her Hollywood career.
“Hollywood bosses are unlikely to consider her for roles going forward. Financially, the actress and witnesses alluded to her money troubles, while the huge outpouring of support for Depp may lead to brands and companies avoiding her,” the Mail wrote.
In addition, Heard’s assets may come into play, which include a $570,000 hideaway in Yucca Valley, as well as a Range Rover she got in the divorce, according to The Daily Mail.
Then again, Heard reportedly has 30 years to pay off her debt, and there are some other scenarios in which she may not have to pay at all.Depp, who said he “got his life back” because of the jury’s decision, could simply not demand payment. “He’s in the driver’s seat right now. For an individual who doesn’t have the ability to pay the judgment and no ability to post the bond, then there is […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
