Johnny Depp-Amber Heard Trial Explained

On the 1st of June, Johnny Depp won his defamation trial against Amber Heard. 

It was televised live and social media consumed and commented on it like a spectator sport or reality tv. While some people watched the entirety of the trial, many others kept up by watching bits and pieces circulating on social media in the form of memes. The entire thing was bizarre, to say the least. Netizens cheered and clapped for Johnny Depp and poked fun at Amber Heard. 

But has there been a disinformation campaign surrounding the trial? And does Johnny Depp deserve his heroic redemption arc?
