The defamation trial of Johnny Depp against Amber Heard is one of the biggest news these days. The celebrity couple is fighting a legal battle over an op-ed Amber Heard in Washington Post. The actress did not mention the name, but the Pirates of the Caribbean star says that it destroyed his career. Now, due to the bad headlines, the actress is facing a similar consequence. She recently was in The Aquaman 2 but due to the online protests, her role has been cut short now. Now, Jason Momoa is Amber Heard’s costar in the movie and plays the titular character. The two are reprising the role from the first movie that came out in 2018. Now there are rumors that he might testify in the trial.
But would Jason Momoa testify in his co-star’s trial?
Video of Jason Momoa testifying goes viral
Very recently, a video of Jason Momoa speaking in the trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard went viral. But it later turned out to be a spoof. It was so well edited that netizens were convinced he did testify in court. In the 15-minute-long video, the Aquaman actor is seen joking with the Lawyers and he even made fun of the questions asked to him. One of the fan-favorite jokes was when he is asked whether he and Heard worked together as actors, he replies, “no, as janitors.” He even called his co-star, Amber Turd.
The spoof video also contains shots of Johnny Depp and his team of lawyers laughing uncontrollably at the joke. The editor made it seem like the actor joined the trial through a video chat link. But it is originally a video of him at an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The creator took the clips and edited his words and filled them with false quotes.
Who would he support in the Heard Depp trial?
The actor so far has not spoken anything about the ongoing Depp Heard trial. Though his name was taken in court, there is no such list that includes his name among the people who are testifying in court. According to the reports that came out in April, Jason Momoa is in favor of Johnny Depp. But he showed his support in a very subtle way.
Previously there were rumors that the actor supports his co-star, but the fans are convinced the truth is otherwise. The actor followed Johnny Depp in April, while the trial was still going on.
