Woman Says She Copped Loads Of Online Abuse For Getting A Tattoo Of Johnny Depp's Lawyer
| Last updated
A Canadian singer-songwriter has been left gobsmacked following the abuse she copped after tattooing herself with an image of Johnny Depp's lawyer Camille Vasquez.
Jazzmyn Wollfe shared a video of her new tattoo from start to finish on TikTok.
In the 10-second clip, Wollfe shows off her drawing of Vasquez with the word 'objection' underneath.
She then can be seen tattooing the image on her own leg before showing off the final, finished product.
Wollfe explained to Insider why she felt compelled to ink herself with Depp’s lawyer.
"I was so impressed and amazed by the confidence she maintained the whole time. How unapologetically she pursued justice and trying to shine light on the mistreatment of somebody she believed had been abused."
She added: "Honestly, my jaw dropped."
The short clip has since amassed over one million views. But not all were impressed by Wollfe's very permanent statement on her own body.
One TikTok user said: "Why must people trivialise this domestic abuse case?"
A second commented, sarcastically imagining Wollfe's thought process when tattooing herself: "Ah, clearly I should make a mockery out of it and get a tattoo of it."
A third just simply called her 'sad'.
The singer-songwriter revealed she was ‘deeply upset’ by the comments and assumptions made about her after the TikTok clip went viral.
"Many people have made assumptions about my own personal beliefs," she told Insider.
"They said that I'm advocating for abuse, and that couldn't be farther from true."
She revealed that her reasoning behind the tattoo came from a very personal experience of her own.
"I recently left an abusive relationship where I spent years suppressing my own voice and my own pain for the convenience of a narcissistic abuser," she said.
"So, to see somebody fighting back against that in such an impressive manner, I really took inspiration from that moment."
She added: "I just wanted it to be a symbol of strength."
Wollfe's tattoo controversy comes as the jury continues to deliberate on the defamation case between Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard.
Depp sued his ex-wife for $50 million ($AUD 70.4m, £40m) following an op-ed she wrote in 2018 for The Washington Post.
The op-ed was entitled: "I spoke up against sexual violence - and faced our culture’s wrath. That has to change."
Heard counter-sued Depp for $100 million ($AUD 140.8m, £80m).
The jury is yet to make a decision, however experts have warned that the trial will likely drag on to an appellate court when either Depp or Heard lose and are awarded damages.
