During Depp’s VMAs appearance, BuzzFeed reported on the kind of impact a Depp comeback might have on victims of s*xual assault and domestic violence. The news outlet sought the opinion of Shanita Brown, a certified counselor, and East Carolina University teaching assistant professor. Shanita stressed that “this comeback is just another punch in the stomach and is gut-wrenching.”

She continued: “It reinforces this idea that abusers are not held accountable, that nobody will believe [survivors] and they shouldn’t speak up. It’s another slap in the face.” 

TMZ was the first to report that Depp would appear at VMAs dressed as a Moonperson. A source close to the actor also confirmed it at the time, telling the New York Post that Depp is ready for his comeback. Currently, he’s shooting a feature film where he will play King Louis XV and is set to direct a movie coproduced by Al Pacino.
