Employment posting on the freelance site Upwork is seeking a researcher who is able to pitch content that proves how guilty Amber Heard is.

The post links to videos developed by Just In, a YouTube channel that boasts 268,000 subscribers, as examples. Several heavily edited videos disparage Heard and support Depp and his lawyers on the website, including BUSTED! Trustworthy PROOF That Amber RENTS Her Baby JUST LEAKED! and Johnny SPOTTED Donating MILLIONS To People In Poor Neighborhoods!. Both curently have a large number of views and were posted on Wednesday within hours of every other.
The channel didn’t confirm to VICE News whether its behind the Upwork job posting by enough time of publication.
Its also seemingly the next job ad of its kind, with a previous one disappearing off Upworks site following news coverage.
Upwork didn’t immediately react to a VICE News obtain comment.
The work posting is among the latest types of the relentless onslaught of hate targeting Heard and her supporters.
The vitriol against Heard on social media marketing likely swayed the jury that found her guilty of defaming her ex-husband Depp in June. Depp had launched a defamation suit against Heard for $50 million in reaction to a 2018 Washington Post op-ed that Heard wrote about her experiences with domestic abuse. Heard countersued Depp for $100 million in damages in reaction to public statements among Depps lawyers made that described her allegations as fake and a hoax, that your jury also had to deliberate.
The jury decided that Heards op-ed was false and defamatory, and that Heard designed to defame Deppand awarded him $15 million in damages. Based on the jury, Heard ought to be awarded $2 million in damages.
Heard is currently likely to appeal the case.
Regardless of the verdict, online harassment of Heard hasnt relented. Last month, Bot Sentinel, a Twitter analytics tool, released a written report that described the hate targeting Heard among the worst cases of platform manipulation and flagrant abuse from the band of Twitter accounts. VICE News previously reported how content creators earned a huge amount of followers and subscribers for posting anti-Heard content through the trial.
Its possible that may likely prevent survivors and victims of domestic abuse from speaking out later on, as theyll fear similar backlash from their relatives and buddies members.
