Johnny Depp said he’s appreciative for the fans who remained close by.
The on-screen character was granted the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Movie Icon on Wednesday night amid his first open appearance since finishing his muddled separation from Amber Heard.
“I came here for one reason this evening and one reason as it were. I came here for you, the general population, who through whatever great circumstances or awful, you know, have remained by me, confided in me,” he said to the group. “Much thanks to you.”
Heard has constantly stood up about the mishandle she professedly continued from Depp, incorporating showing up in PSA recordings for abusive behavior at home.
Depp’s People’s Choice honor made some question how the allegations could be overlooked.
“Really pitiful. He manhandled his better half and gets a honor,” one client composed.
Another additional, “Manipulative Johnny Depp, at complicit grants appear, thanks fans for overlooking he beat his ex.”
The “Privateers of the Caribbean” star was never accused of a wrongdoing, however that hasn’t ceased Heard, 30, from pronouncing he was “sincerely and physically injurious.”
A spilled video demonstrates Depp going off on Heard and tossing a wine jug and glass in their kitchen. She later showed up in court amid the match’s separation procedures with a wound all over.
A week ago, a judge concluded the $7 million separation settlement between the match — which Heard said she would give to philanthropy.
