Women’s Aid statement on Johnny Depp losing libel trial against The Sun
Nicki Norman, acting chief executive at Women’s Aid, said
“The allegations of domestic abuse against Johnny Depp were extremely serious. Everyone who has experienced domestic abuse deserves to be listened to and believed. This also applies to survivors who do not fit the image of the “perfect” victim – and regardless of the high profile of the alleged abuser. There is no excuse for domestic abuse.”
