An ACLU staffer wrote Amber Heard’s 2018 op-ed in the Wa Post pitching her as being a “ public figure representing domestic abuse” after she pledged to donate $3. 5 million to the liberal activist group, emails shared in court by Johnny Depp’s legal team reveal.
From Fox News :
“ I tried to gather your fire and rage and really interesting analysis and shape that into an op-ed form, ” wrote ACLU communications strategist Robin Shulman in an email to Heard.
At least three other staffers were associated with drafting and revising the particular piece, testified ACLU COO Terence Dougherty in a pre-recorded deposition played in courtroom Thursday.
Heard requested how the op-ed be published soon after the release of her movie “ Aquaman” to make profit on the publicity, Dougherty testified.
He furthermore revealed that Heard had only paid $1. several million of the $3. 5 million she publicly pledged to donate to the charitable organization.
The particular op-ed was released on Dec 18, 2018. Aquaman was launched in the US on December 21, 2018.
Shulman’s op-ed was a truly depraved item of vomit-inducing propaganda.
It was written to smear Depp without mentioning him explicitly to avoid legal liability, promote her movie and push the ACLU’s radical left-wing legal agenda.
This is the type of crap the particular ACLU decided to work on full-time after completely abandoning their commitment to defending the First Amendment post-Charlottesville.
One may say they’ve truly sh*t the bed!
