Twitter user Kamilla (handle @k4mil1aa)’s original account was reportedly suspended after she posted a thread alleging that Depp used “DARVO many abusers do” against Heard. “J*hnny D*pp sympathizers reported my account after I posted a thread exposing him for using DARVO as many abusers do. The tweet went semi-viral talking about the many DV experts who acknowledge Johnny as an abuser,” the user tweeted from a new account.

According to Jennifer J. Freyd, professor of psychology at the University of Oregon, DARVO refers to “a response that perpetrators of wrongdoing, particularly sex offenders, may exhibit when held accountable for their behavior.” The acronym stands for Deny, Attack, and Reverse Victim and Offender. Freyd explains that the “perpetrator or perpetrator can deny the behavior, attack the person conducting the confrontation, and reverse the roles of victim and perpetrator so that the perpetrator takes on the victim role and the true victim — or whistleblower — is the one.” alleged perpetrator.”

In her original Twitter thread, Kamilla wrote that she couldn’t believe “that after the Gabby Petito case in which her fiancé convinced the police he was the victim, everyone now believes that a 23-year-old actress who just starting her career somehow abused a multi-millionaire twice her age who has another assault trial next month.” Florida resident Laundrie, 23, was found dead in October 2021, just weeks after he allegedly killed his 22-year-old fiancé during a cross-country trip.

“Brian Laundrie joked and laughed with the cops as he watched his fiancée be arrested for allegedly molesting him. Johnny Depp joked and laughed with the courtroom while portraying his ex-wife as the perpetrator,” the Twitter user continued. “When Gabby Petito’s case broke, there was an ongoing conversation about how victims are perceived as hysterical and unstable, while perpetrators typically remain calm. It’s absurd how the culture has shifted back to being consciously ignorant about DV just months later.”

Kamilla noted how cops called Petito a “hysterical woman” in a 2021 report. “In 2021, police believed Gabby Petito to be a ‘hysterical woman’ in the report. In 2022, the non-state-certified psychologist Dr. Shannon Curry at Amber Heard after just 12 hours of inquest Hysteria. dr Curry has received much criticism from the psychologist community.”

The Twitter user said she also wanted to point out that “in both the bodycam footage and the courtroom clip, Brian and Johnny claim they need to ‘calm down’ their victims, and they also use it to gas their victims.” illuminate.”

After her suspension, Kamilla said she found out why her account was shut down and who was behind the reports. “Thanks to German law, I found out what JD sympathizers reported me for, and it was the thread that didn’t violate the Twitter Rules. So I’m curious as to why I got banned? @TwitterSupport.”

She added in a follow-up tweet, “They also reported my profile. This isn’t against the Twitter Rules either. @TwitterSupport. I’m just curious if Twitter suspends people for reporting them en masse? It’s crazy because I get a lot of death threats from JD Stans every day.”

Twitter informed the user that it is “obligated under German law to notify users who are reported by persons from Germany via the reporting flow of the Network Enforcement Act”. According to the website, the Network Enforcement Act (NetzDG) ​​is a German law that came into effect on January 1, 2018. “Under this law, Twitter is obliged to publish a report in German twice a year on our handling of complaints submitted to Germany’s Network Enforcement Act,” the platform says.

During an interview with Today’s Savannah Guthrie last week, Heard called the trial’s verdict a “setback” for women and that she was “afraid” it would mean more “silencing” of survivors hoping to air their allegations. She also said she hoped her arduous ordeal in the courtroom would “mean something” for her daughter Oonagh when she grows up. The actress is reportedly planning to appeal the jury’s unanimous decision in the defamation case brought by her ex-husband Depp.
