Amber Heard’s Sister Criticizes MTV After Johnny Depp’s VMA Appearance

MTV was 'clearly desperate,' according to Whitney Henriquez, in getting the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actor to appear as the Moon Person during the award event.

When responding to MTV about Amber Heard’s ex-husband Johnny Depp making guest appearances as the Moon Person on Sunday, August 28, Whitney Henriquez didn’t hold back. Two months after the defamation trial between the two ended in Johnny’s favour, Whitney used her Instagram Stories to criticise the network and offer her sister further support.

Whitney, 34, posted a picture on social media of her sister, 36, with a “D” next to the VMAs logo. “@MTV You’re disgusting and clearly desperate! I really hope that none of the people that made this call have daughters,” she said, using the apparent allusion to domestic violence in the hashtag #DVMAS. According to The University of Maine, the acronym DVMAS stands for “Domestic Violence Myth Acceptance Scale.”

Additionally, her sibling was shown to be supported in the shot. Next to a picture of the Aquaman actress, it stated, “I stand with Amber Heard.” When it came to MTV and the VMAs, Johnny, 59, portrayed the legendary astronaut. A few times between commercial breaks during the award event, a pre-recorded video message was cut to him. Johnny made fun of being “available for birthdays, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, weddings, wakes, any old thing you need,” as the Moon Person soared over the crowd.

His first on-screen appearance since the conclusion of the defamation litigation involving him and Amber in June was during the cameos. For claims made by Adam Waldman, Amber was forced to pay Johnny $10 million, and he was sentenced to pay her $2 million. Whitney has frequently shown her support for her sister in the media. One of several witnesses questioned during the slander trial was Amber’s sister.

Whitney also posted on Instagram after the jury returned a verdict in favour of Ed Woodstar, expressing her continued support for Amber. “I will always be proud of you for standing up for yourself,” she wrote in the caption. “I am so honoured to testify for you, and I would do it a million times over because I know what I saw and because the truth is forever on your side. I’m so sorry that it wasn’t reflected in the decision made by this jury, but I will never give up on you, and neither will anyone who stands with you.”
