By The Big Magazine Staff
Actor Johnny Depp's first TikTok video thanking fans for their support attracts millions followers in minutes.
Sometime on Monday, the TikTok account @johnnydepp was created. As of Tuesday morning, before any videos were posted, the account had 3.5 million followers and counting.
His first video pays tribute to his fans.
The video starts with a montage showing his supporters holding signs and rallying for him outside of the courthouse during his trial against ex-wife Amber Heard. The video then shows fans giving him a standing ovation during his recent concerts in England.
“To all of my most treasured, loyal and unwavering supporters. We’ve been everywhere together, we have seen everything together,” Depp’s caption read. “We have walked the same road together. We did the right thing together, all because you cared. And now, we will all move forward together. You are, as always, my employers and once again I am whittled down to no way to say thank you, other than just by saying thank you. So, thank you.”
The actor signed the caption off with “My love & respect, JD.”
TikTok users posted reaction and discussion videos daily during Depp’s six-week trial, many in support of the 58-year-old actor. #Justiceforjohnnydepp videos currently have 20.2 billion views on TikTok, while #justiceforamberheard videos have 86.3 million views.
Some speculate that Depp’s move to the social media platform is him gearing up for a comeback. The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star is already present on Facebook and Instagram. He posted statements to both sites following his trial.
