Amber Rose, Best Friend, and Bones: tumblr nly-johnny-dep # Believe!im 3. The op-ed's clear implication that Mr. Depp is a domestic abuser is categorically and demonstrably false. Mr. Depp never abused Ms. Heard. Her allegations against him were false when they were made in 2016. They were part of an elaborate hoax to generate positive publicity for Ms. Heard and advance her career. Ms. Heard's false allegations against Mr. Depp have benconclusivlrfed by two pndng polie offices, a litany of neutral third-party witnesses, and 87 newly obtained surveillance camera videos. With a prior arrest for violent domestic abuse and having confessed under oath to a series of violent attacks on Mr. Depp, Ms. Heard is not a victim of domestic abuse; she is a perpetrator. Ms. Heard violently abused Mr. Depp, just as she was caught and arrested for violently abusing her former domestic artner. In one particularly gruesome episode that occurred only one month into their marriage, Ms. Heard shattered the bones in the tip of Mr. Depp's right middle finger, almost completely cutting it off. Ms. Heard threw a glass vodka bottle at Mr. Depp-one of many projectiles that she launched at him in this and other instances. The bottle shattered as it came into contact with Mr. Depp's hand, and the broken glass and impact severed and shattered Mr. Depp's finger. Mr. Depp's finger had to be surgically reattached. Ms. Heard then disseminated false accounts of this incident, casting Mr. Depp as the perpetrator of his own injury odinoco: only-johnny-depp: “The thing that hurt me is being presented as something that you’re really as far away from as you could possibly get, you know?” – Johnny Depp for the British GQ, October/2018 I’m sorry for the long post, but I had to say something….On the last 24 hours, Johnny has been in the news again, but now showing more proofs that SHE, Amber, is the who committed acts of domestic violence towards him.

“The thing
that hurt me is being presented as something that you’re really as far away
from as you could possibly get, you know?” – Johnny Depp for the British GQ, October/2018
I’m sorry for the long post, but I had to say something….On the last 24 hours, Johnny has been in the news
again, but now showing more proofs that SHE, Amber, is the who committed acts
of domestic violence towards him. For me (and I think ALL of his fans) was –
and still is – disgusting to read all the things that Johnny suffered… It’s beyond
shocking!   
For the damage
to his career, Johnny is suing Amber in $50 million for her “false allegations”
against him: “an elaborate hoax to generate positive publicity” for her to
“advance her career”, which made her a darling of the #MeToo movement, made
her the first actress named a “Human Rights Champion of the United Nations
Human Rights Office”, also was appointed “ambassador on women’s rights” at the
American Civil Liberties Union, hired by L'Oreal Paris as its “global
spokesperson and some people also believes that all of it opened the doors to her starring in “Aquaman”. While she was enjoying the attention, Johnny was, and still suffers consequences
in his career, such as boycotts that some “haters” still makes. The whole new evidences are a rollercoaster of shocking things:

 

The “eonline”
revealed that he was dropped from his role on “Pirates of the Caribbean” days
after she published her piece in the Washington Post in 2018.  

The
numbers of proofs against Amber, rose so much that from the at least 29
evidences, some months ago, now has at least 87 newly evidences. This numbers are just from surveillance camera videos.  

An employee of the building reviewed building surveillance videos three days after
the alleged incident where Amber claimed that Johnny attacked her, and “testified under oath that she saw Whitney Heard pretend to punch her sister in
the face. Then Ms. Heard, Ms. Pennington (Heard’s best friend), and Whitney
Heard all laughed.” 

I think
the biggest new lie that broke my heart was the “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

”
incident: If you can’t remember, back to 2015, everybody was caught up by surprise
when Johnny had to head back to USA from Australia to make a surgery in his
finger, caused (at that time) for “unknown reasons.” Some time before, Amber


claiming that he 

“he was the perpetrator of his own injury” because he punched a wall and throw a glass during a quarrel. Now was revealed that SHE WAS THE ONE WHO F*CKING THREW A BOTTLE OF VODKA AT
HIM!!! Due to the
impact, the bottle shattered when he made contact with his hand, cutting his
finger almost to the bone, which had to be surgically reattached, and delaying the filming of POTC in a month. At that time, she claimed that  


 

Was revealed that Johnny has proofs that Amber was “spending some questionable time” with Tesla
founder Elon Musk during their short marriage. While Johnny
was working, he also claims Musk was given access to his home to spend the night with Heard on the same night she “presented her battered face to the public.” 
 Amber keep
giving the excuse of “confidentiality restrictions”, due to a divorce agreement
in August 2016 “which prevent her from assisting the defendants with evidence
to support their case”, but, the British judge, Mr. Justice Nicklin, announced:
“I am not satisfied on the current evidence that Ms. Heard’s concerns about the
restrictions that the divorce agreement imposes on her are well-founded.” Mr Justice
Nicklin said that Johnny had stated
clearly in his evidence to the court that he expects Heard give evidence in the
proceedings, and “he will not attempt to prevent that” and added “The fact that
Ms Heard presently thinks that there is some impediment to her giving evidence
for the defendants is nothing to do with Mr Depp. Even if she were right, there
would appear to be a number of ways of resolving the issue that have not yet
been explored adequately or at all.”Now tell
me: How can Amber claims to be a victim if EVERYTHING goes against her and she
didn’t even is defending herself? Her lawyer, Eric M. George, called Johnny’s lawsuit
“frivolous” and accused him of being “hell-bent on achieving self-destruction,”
and said: “This frivolous action is just the latest of Johnny Depp’s repeated efforts
to silence Amber Heard. She will not be silenced.” But guess what! He didn’t

joke!) Until now she said ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, but CONFESSED UNDER OATH to a
series of violent attacks TOWARDS Johnny!!!Guys, I’m so sorry for a long post, but I’m still astonished after all of it. Again, 

It’s not hard to understand what’s going on. It’s not hard to understand who is the abuser and the one trying to destroy a life. It’s not hard to choose the right side.


Johnny only wants to stop all these false and defamatory publications and live his life.
He just want to prove the truth, and has no
fear of her “evidences”.Another proof we cannot forget of how Johnny is innocent, are his most recent movies. If Johnny had done what Amber says, do you believe that all the actors and directors who had work with Johnny since 2016, would still collaborate with him?

Inside the house was Eeyore. “Hello Eeyore,” said Pooh. “Hello Pooh. Hello Piglet,” said Eeyore, in a Glum Sounding Voice. “We just thought we’d check in on you,” said Piglet, “because we hadn’t heard from you, and so we wanted to know if you were okay.” Eeyore was silent for a moment. “Am I okay?” he asked, eventually. “Well, I don’t know, to be honest. Are any of us really okay? That’s what I ask myself. All I can tell you, Pooh and Piglet, is that right now I feel really rather Sad, and Alone, and Not Much Fun To Be Around At All. Which is why I haven’t bothered you. Because you wouldn’t want to waste your time hanging out with someone who is Sad, and Alone, and Not Much Fun To Be Around At All, would you now.” Pooh looked and Piglet, and Piglet looked at Pooh, and they both sat down, one on either side of Eeyore in his stick house. Eeyore looked at them in surprise. “What are you doing?” “We’re sitting here with you,” said Pooh, “because we are your friends. And true friends don’t care if someone is feeling Sad, or Alone, or Not Much Fun To Be Around At All. True friends are there for you anyway. And so here we are.” “Oh,” said Eeyore. “Oh.” And the three of them sat there in silence, and while Pooh and Piglet said nothing at all; somehow, almost imperceptibly, Eeyore started to feel a very tiny little bit better.

One example I personally worked on: vaccination databases. My contract was with the CDC to coordinate immunization registries — you know, kids’ vaccine histories. What they got, when they got it, and (most importantly) which vaccines they were due to get next and when. These were state-wide registries, containing millions of records each. Most of these systems were designed in the 1970s and 1980s, and stored the child’s DOB year as only two digits. This means that — had we not fixed it — just about every child in all the databases I worked on would have SUDDENLY AGED OUT OF THE PROGRAM 1-JAN-2000. In other words: these kids would suddenly be “too old” to receive critical vaccines. Okay, so that’s not a nuke plant exploding or airplanes dropping from the sky. In fact, nothing obvious would have occurred come Jan 1st.

The PETS Act was signed into law on October 6th, 2006. The bill was brought forward after the events of Hurricane Katrina. Before and during Katrina, there were no evacuation measures for pets set in place when natural disasters occurred in the United States. None. At all.

View Full Caption BROOKLYN - A city councilman and his staff bullied an aide with autism with pranks such as littering his desk with decapitated stuffed animals and locking him in a basement, a $10 million lawsuit claims. DNAinfo/Nicholas Rizzi babydreamgirl: aaliyah-appollonia: anxious-strawberry: don-teriestiel: teenage-mutant-angsty-zukos: runningfromomelas: transfaabulous: so-many-miles-to-go: bitterbitchclubpresident: bellygangstaboo: Bistreich’s suit alleges that both Gentile — a Democrat who represents Bath Beach, Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst and Dyker Heights — and his chief of staff John Mancuso targeted him because of his diagnosis and tormented him with pranks so distressing he was forced to quit his job in June 2016. Mancuso once organized a mass-decapitation of the stuffed animals Bistreich kept on his desk. Bistreich found his Teddy bears with their heads ripped off — with one mounted on a flagpole — and a stuffed toy dog had been gutted and painted red to seem bloody. The suit also claims the bullying was tolerated and encouraged by Gentile, who laughed and clapped his hands when a staff member compared Bistreich to Avonte Oquendo — the autistic boy who died after escaping his school through an unattended exit — by suggesting Bistreich “test the doors.” This is so gross! These are grown adults bullying someone like they are on an elementary school playground. I have to continue believing that for every one asshole there are at least two caring people.. Gentile told Bistreich his “ticking” had gotten worse. He said, “We know your condition, but when you twitch like that it’s unnerving to people” and asked “Can you look into upping your medication?” the lawsuit claims.(x) that is so disgusting, and highly illegal. I hope Bistreich wins the lawsuit. Did someone fix the stuffed animals for him? Does he still have them? If not, and he still has the parts, is there a way I could offer to do it?  I’m a seamstress and have done stuffed toy repair before.  He probably doesn’t have them right now, since they’re likely being used as evidence, but I’m confident he’ll get them back at some point, whereupon we can help repair them. For now, though, can we send stuffed animals his way? What kind does he prefer? Mr. Bistreich is hyperempathetic and identifies with his stuffed animals. This is important. He feels real empathy for these stuffed animals and sees himself in them. His coworkers knew this. It was soon after Mr. Bistreich disclosed his hyperempathy toward his stuffed animals that this ‘prank’ (read: abuse) occurred. It was a calculated attack intended to intimidate and traumatize. This is so sickening for me to read. I have an autistic brother who is also hyperempathic , and he’s also got a large collection of stuffed animals. He cries whenever one gets too worn to keep. Just…. Why would you do this? How could you be so cruel? This made me cry in public. We do not deserved to be treated like this. Can someone start a donation of stuffed animals for him please?? Like those people were so horrible and he deserves the world. Sigh even I first read this I cried and now again I like never ever cry but I just did and this made me grab my bear so tight I want these demons fired sued and exiled

Bistreich’s suit alleges that both Gentile — a Democrat who represents Bath Beach, Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst and Dyker Heights — and his chief of staff John Mancuso targeted him because of his diagnosis and tormented him with pranks so distressing he was forced to quit his job in June 2016.
Mancuso once organized a mass-decapitation of the stuffed animals Bistreich kept on his desk.
Bistreich found his Teddy bears with their heads ripped off — with one mounted on a flagpole — and a stuffed toy dog had been gutted and painted red to seem bloody.


The suit also claims the bullying was tolerated and encouraged by Gentile, who laughed and clapped his hands when a staff member compared Bistreich to Avonte Oquendo — the autistic boy who died after escaping his school through an unattended exit — by suggesting Bistreich “test the doors.”




This is so gross!


These are grown adults bullying someone like they are on an elementary school playground.


I have to continue believing that for every one asshole there are at least two caring people..

Gentile told Bistreich his “ticking” had gotten worse. He said, “We know your condition, but when you twitch like that it’s unnerving to people” and asked “Can you look into upping your medication?” the lawsuit claims.(x)
that is so disgusting, and highly illegal. I hope Bistreich wins the lawsuit.

Did someone fix the stuffed animals for him? Does he still have them?
If not, and he still has the parts, is there a way I could offer to do it?  I’m a seamstress and have done stuffed toy repair before. 

He probably doesn’t have them right now, since they’re likely being used as evidence, but I’m confident he’ll get them back at some point, whereupon we can help repair them.
For now, though, can we send stuffed animals his way? What kind does he prefer?

Mr. Bistreich is hyperempathetic and identifies with his stuffed animals. 
This is important. He feels real empathy for these stuffed animals and sees himself in them. 
His coworkers knew this. It was soon after Mr. Bistreich disclosed his hyperempathy toward his stuffed animals that this ‘prank’ (read: abuse) occurred. 
It was a calculated attack intended to intimidate and traumatize.


This is so sickening for me to read. I have an autistic brother who is also hyperempathic , and he’s also got a large collection of stuffed animals. He cries whenever one gets too worn to keep. 
Just…. Why would you do this? How could you be so cruel?


This made me cry in public. We do not deserved to be treated like this.


Can someone start a donation of stuffed animals for him please?? Like those people were so horrible and he deserves the world.


Sigh even I first read this I cried and now again


I like never ever cry but I just did and this made me grab my bear so tight I want these demons fired sued and exiled

There is a reason it is for people to find like minded people but its NOT exclusive for gays only. Just like standard clubs arent only for straights i have had quite a few gay friends over the years and not one has batted an eyelid as ive joined them at a gay bar, I understand some people go there because they fetishize gay people and are looking for gay bffs but not EVERY straight person is like that. Gay bars exist because before 2003 it was illegal in most states to be gay and one of the few places where gay and trans people could go and be themselves was a fucking mob-owned bar. The cops used to kick down gay people’s doors and arrest them while they were in bed. Trans people couldn’t walk down the street without getting at least questioned by the cops. Bars were the only space for us, and even then they’d get raided by the cops. It’s why the riot that kicked off the modern gay rights movement happened at Stonewall, a bar. It’s why gay gathering places are bars instead of coffee shops or restaurants 9/10 times. (It also doesn’t hurt that drinking eases the pain of being the almost constant target of harassment and anti-gay legislation, also why alcoholism is so high in our community) This isn’t some fucking hookup culture thing, or finding “like minded people” it’s something that was forced onto and built into our culture. You’re exploiting our spaces that you forced us into to begin with. Don’t walk in here and tell us why gay bars exist when you’re this fucking ignorant.

Money, Old Navy, and Pizza: How CUSTOMER SERVICE WORKS Excuse me, I said a bit of ice on the bottom. Why is the ice on top? oh boy!

Please don't give us 1-star on Yelp YOU'RE FIRED!! THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT! EVEN WHEN THEY RE WRONG) I worked in a Lil Caesars and a woman came in and wanted a sausage pizza with no sausage, but got mad when she was given a cheese pizza So when I worked at fitting room in Old Navy, a woman told me that a medium top was too small, and that the large top was too large. So she asked me to find her an "x-medium" Old Navy carries x-small, small, medium, large, x-large, 1x, 2x and 3x. There is no "x-medium". But she insisted, so l went and found her an "x-medium" (which was just a medium in a different color but the same top, same make same EVERYTHING) and she goes very happily, "THIS! THIS FITS ME PERFECTLY! THANK YOU SO MUCH! See you can do anything you can set your mind to!" I'm a waitress at a big fancy resort, and once a woman asked me for a diet water and when I told her there was no such thing she demanded to see my manager (who then also promptly told her there was no such thing and brought her regular water) Another occasion of stupidity occurred when a woman had been brought a steak cooked too much for her liking. I offered to take t back and bring her out a new one, cooked a little less, and she said "NO this one's fine I just want you to cook THIS one a little less." I then had to get the chef and have him explain why you can't UNCOOK a steak When I was working at dunkin donuts there was this woman in the drive-thru who asked for a lightly toasted croissant and then started complaining that the croissant was warm. And wanted her money back, so she gave me the croissant back and I gave her the money and then she tells me "now i want my new croissant" she wanted a new one for free and as she was screaming at me this guy in a biker gang covered in tattoos leans over the counter in the store and yells ma'am let me just tell you what we're all thinking. fuck off, you stupid cunt." i couldn't stop laughing and she drove away in anger Most of the people like in the stories above know that they're being totally irrational, but also know that if they complain enough they'll most likely get something free or discounted.
