Jameela [00:00:00] Hello and welcome to another episode of I Weigh with Jameela Jamil, a podcast that has absolutely no time for shame. I hope you’re well. I’ve been a bit fucked up lately, listening to the news, looking online. I’ve kind of had to actually get offline entirely. Because of the amount that people are enjoying the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial. Regardless of whatever you think of either of them. I don’t think they should have become a laughing matter, even if it was made public. I don’t think people should have memed this and become tik-tok famous from impersonating moments from this incredibly sad trial about two very unstable people in a very unstable and deeply upsetting and scary relationship. And I don’t think people really understand yet how much damage they’ve done by trivializing it like this. I don’t think they understand the knock on effect of making this a punch line of making the name Amber Heard a punchline
