Amber Heard's Friend iO Tillet Wright Defends Heard over Johnny Depp Abuse Allegations
iO Tillet Wright came to Amber Heard's defense on Twitter
Tillet took to Twitter on Monday, airing frustrations about the “victim blaming” Wright says Heard, 30, is facing.
“BULLS T. I’ve had enough. I saw the bruises. Many times. And the fat lip. And the cut head,” Wright tweeted, linking to a TMZ article in which witnesses told the website that they saw no bruises after the alleged attack.
“How much evidence does a woman need to present?! She has photos, texts, witnesses, and filed a restraining order,” Wright continued, adding in a separate tweet, “But no a neighbor asked a doorman and talked to TMZ and THAT is headline news and serves as ‘evidence’?! Dear neighbor SHAME ON YOU.”
“This culture of victim blaming makes me sick. I’m a witness. I’m here I’m standing up. I can’t take any more of this witch hunt,” Wright added. “I was on the f—ing phone when he hit her. I HEARD HER SCREAM. I will testify. Here and in court. Under oath. WHAT ELSE DOES A WOMAN NEED?”
According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Heard declared that Depp, 52, “began obsessing about something that was untrue” and became “extremely angry.” In attempt to help relieve the situation, Heard called Wright, whom Depp was asking to speak to.
“Johnny ripped the cell phone from my hand and began screaming profanities and insults at iO,” Heard said in the court filing. “I heard iO yell at me to get out of the house. Johnny then grabbed the cellphone, wound up his arm like a baseball pitcher and threw the cellphone at me striking my cheek and eye with great force.”

Heard continued, claiming that Depp then “forcibly pulled back my hair,” at which point she yelled for Wright, who was still on the phone, to call 911.
“Amber is attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse,” Laura Wasser said. “Her current application for a temporary restraining order along with her financial requests appears to be in response to the negative media attention she received earlier this week after filing for divorce.”
