‘Internet’s Gone Wild’: Billie Eilish Unhappy with Depp-Heard Trial Getting So Much Coverage

Johnny Depp recently won the defamation trial against Amber Heard. The trial that lasted for more than a month was widely covered by the media and was watched by millions of people worldwide. It was the centre of attention on the internet and even led to the emergence of a number of memes, most of which were targeted against Amber Heard. Ever since the final verdict, many celebrities such as Ashley Benson, Eva Green and Jennifer Aniston, as well as Depp’s fans, have been supporting and congratulating Depp for his win. However, Billie Eilish is not happy with the widespread attention that the trial is getting in the media.

The “Bad Guy” singer performed a new unreleased song titled “TV” on her Happier Than Ever World Tour. The lyrics of the song highlighted her unhappiness with the popularity of the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial.

“The internet’s gone wild watching movie stars on trial while they’re overturning Roe v Wade,” Eilish sang while her brother, Finneas, played the guitar.

Eilish seems to be pointing out that celebrity news often tends to overshadow other socio-politically important things, such as the Roe vs Wade trial, which is concerned with abortion laws in the USA. The Roe vs Wade trial dates back to 1973, and it was a historic judgement as it protected the reproductive rights of women and allowed them to get an abortion without immoderate restrictions by the government. Recently, a leaked initial draft indicated that the Supreme Court of the USA might overturn the judgement made in 1973. There have been heated debates regarding this, with celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Chris Evans, Lady Gaga and Mark Ruffalo sharing their thoughts about the topic.

However, according to Billie Eilish, the attention received by Roe vs Wade trial is not enough and one of the reasons for it could be because of the internet’s obsession with the Depp vs Heard trial. It seems that according to Billie Eilish, who has been very vocal about her support for abortion rights, the internet is not giving enough light to a trial that affects millions of women across the country and is instead focused on only on Amber Heard.

"I really don't understand how it's any different. In all honesty, I really don't want it to feel different," Larson explained. "I am kind of 'Initial female blah blah blah,' and'Wow, perhaps women can really do exactly the exact items that dude can perform -- what a crazy idea!' I feel as though more people speak about it, the further people perpetuate the fantasy that it is an impossible job. No, though it was not like this it is because it was incorrect. That was wrong.
