The Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard Defamation Trial goes beyond a temper tantrum. Both sides are trying to make the other seem subhuman.
Both pop psychology and pop culture lovers found the trial to have been manna. TikTok users decide court cases, not judges.
The trial was described in a blog post that I found interesting. The case is called The Heard-Depp Case. It illustrates the stigma surrounding Borderline personality disorders.
To begin, the author copies and pastes the Mayo Clinic summary of both conditions.
Borderline Personality Disorder
- Impulsive and risky behavior, such as having unsafe sex, gambling, or binge eating
- Unstable or fragile self-image
- Unstable and intense relationships
- Up and down moods, often as a reaction to interpersonal stress
- Suicidal behavior or threats of self-injury
- Intense fear of being alone or abandoned
- Ongoing feelings of emptiness
- Frequent, intense displays of anger
- Stress-related paranoia that comes and goes
Histrionic Personality Disorder
- Constantly seeking attention
- Excessively emotional, dramatic, or sexually provocative to gain attention

- Easily influenced by others
- Shallow, rapidly changing emotions
- Excessive concern with physical appearance
- Thinks relationships with others are closer than they really are
It is easy to forget that HPD symptoms sounded a lot like AOC days ending with y. Team Depp does an excellent job of explaining Ms. Heard. Heard is beautiful on the outside, but deeply wounded inside.
Dr. Curry stated that BPD can sometimes be a predictor that women will use violence against their partners. She said that HPD women may be obsessed with their looks and can use that to their advantage.
Although I was shocked by what I heard, I didn’t find it surprising. I knew personality disorders, as well as the stigmatizing language and misinformation they can cause, would be a hot topic.
I was shocked to learn that I had been diagnosed in 2019 with BPD.
Let’s get to the bottom of it. Negative behavior is a sign of a mental illness. It’s okay to not worry too much about it. Soon, you will run out of aspirin.
Realville knows that mental illness should not be taken lightly. Realville also recognizes that mental problems are not something that can be easily dismissed.
It’s the most terrible thing for someone suffering from a mental illness not to admit it.
This piece is mind-numbingly inspiring.
I’m open to admitting that sometimes I get frustrated in relationships.
However, this doesn’t make Lizzo a bad person. But insisting that Lizzo’s problem is not a problem can be as damaging as claiming Lizzo’s obesity isn’t a threat to her health.
Nobody is perfect. Recognize your imperfections. Our imperfections make us different from others and some make people beautiful and interesting in my opinion. If God meant for us to be perfect, he would have clearly made us all that way because he doesn’t make mistakes.
