Not too way back this yr, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard had been embroiled in a harsh authorized battle with competing defamation claims. On the coronary heart of the battle had been claims of home abuse, with all sides accusing the opposite of assaults. The case stirred intense public curiosity with innumerable articles, TikTok movies, and suppose items relating to who was proper or wrongm or what proof was legitimate or not. However the coronary heart of the matter remained home violence, which is unacceptable in any regard.
By some means, home abuse has turn out to be a dressing up for Halloween this yr, with Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly dressing up as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, with one picture even depicting his hand round her neck, and the caption, “However are these even costumes.”
Yesterday, Lexus Amanda, who has been courting and residing with Pasquale Rotella, founder and CEO of Insomniac Occasions, posted a photograph on Instagram of the 2 of them of their Halloween costumes, dressed as Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, full with make-up on Lexus round her eyes and lips, implying she’d just lately been “overwhelmed” and was bruised.

The costume started gaining traction on Twitter early this morning, calling it “indicative of how deeply the roots of sexism and misogyny run in dance music.” It’s quickly gaining consideration on social media, though Lexus has already deleted the picture from her Instagram feed.
Feedback on Lexus’ publish appeared overwhelmingly optimistic and in assist of the costume, although a number of had been very clearly calling her out for the tasteless rise up. Though, as many as popped up, they appeared to vanish simply as shortly, main us to imagine feedback had been actively being deleted.
Within the quote tweets on Twitter, most are echoing the sentiment that the costume is tasteless and expressing that home violence isn’t a joke, even in a state of affairs through which such a case was coated by the media advert nauseam.
