Dior Stands By Johnny Depp Following Libel Case Loss

Dior has stood by Johnny Depp following his loss in the 'wife beater' libel case earlier this month.

The 57-year-old actor brought the lawsuit against The Sun newspaper and executive editor Dan Wootton following the publication of an article in which Depp was labelled a 'wife beater'.

Depp was subsequently asked by Warner Bros. to resign from his role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts.

However, he has remained the face of Dior's Sauvage fragrance, which he has advertised since its launch in 2015.

His continued appearance in the ads raised some eyebrows recently when the commercial aired during the break on The Great British Bake Off.

A spokesperson for the Advertising Standards Authority said: "We have received a total of 11 complaints about this ad with the complainants believing that Johnny Depp shouldn't be in the ad due to details concerning his recent court case."

PR agent Mark Bokowski also argued that Dior should drop Depp.

Speaking to The Guardian, he said: "I think it would be sensible for Dior to sever links with Depp. Anything can be stopped by pressing a button if they really wanted to.

"A brand like Dior is not just looking at this territory. The attitude [toward Depp] in the UK will be very different to the one in eastern Europe, for example.
