Johnny Depp’s defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard becomes more of a circus with each passing day. Fans have been captivated by the wild accusations, tales of failed romance, and violent abuses the former couple have laid out in court. The latest discussion really takes the cake.

Supporters of Johnny Depp have accused Amber Heard of stealing a quote from “The Talented Mr. Ripley” during her testimony. The line isn’t exactly the same, but it’s close enough to have sparked debate. It started when Brietbart reporter Alana Mastrangelo pointed out the similarities.

“Amber Heard: “When I was around Johnny I felt like the most beautiful person in the world—then he would disappear”

Talented Mr. Ripley: “The thing with Dickie, it’s like the sun shines on you and it’s glorious—then he forgets you and it’s very cold”

Over 100 replies came on the original thread. The story then went viral, and the debate has continued all over social media. Amber Heard’s supporters noted that anyone who has been in a chaotic relationship probably shared a similar sentiment.

Johnny Depp’s fans aren’t buying it. They believe the quote is far too similar to have been anything but a ripoff. In the end, it’s completely inconsequential. It does go to show just how ridiculous this entire saga has become.
