You are, as always, my employers and once again I am whittled down to no way to say thank you, other than just by saying thank you. So, thank you. My love & respect, JD”

As you already read, he calls his advocates “loyal” who have been together on the same road [he showcases their support on the road of defamation.] He appreciates them and indicates that the “care” of his fans has been a motivation for him to defend himself. He finally sent his “thank”, “love”, and “respect” to them.
Depp could have hit more than 11.5 million followers on this platform at the time of writing this post. However, it is not certain whether TikTok is going to have a constant presence of this 58-year-old star or if it is only a fleeting comet.
Anyway, once Johnny shared a post on his TikTok account, his ex-wife issued a statement indicating that As Johnny Depp says as he is ‘moving on’, women’s rights are going backward.
‘The message of the verdict for victims of domestic violence is… be afraid to stand up and speak out.’
