Actress Amber Heard Donates Millions to Support the ACLU and Its Work Fighting Violence Against Women

Actress Amber Heard announced yesterday she will give the American Civil Liberties Union half of her $7 million divorce settlement to support our work fighting violence against women. The other half of the settlement will be donated to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.

“We are incredibly grateful that Ms. Heard has so very generously shown her support for the important and necessary advocacy for victims of domestic violence,” said Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union.

“For years, we have worked through the courts and legislatures around the country to make sure that domestic violence victims are fully protected by the law and receive the government assistance they deserve. We could not be more thankful for Ms. Heard’s support — she can be confident that this gift will help other women live safely and freely.”

I don't know if Depp hit her or not, but if he did can you really blame him. She not only broke his heart and used him, but she also stole his money. If she had any integrity she would have given the money back to him. Also, I have no respect for a cause that ignores that men and boys are also victims of abuse by women.

Yes, I can really blame him. Domestic violence happens to all genders and is wrong in any form to any one. Kudos for her.

There is never ever ever an excuse for domestic abuse. She didn't steal anything. And what makes you think the ACLU doesn't help ALL victims of domestic violence?

Yeah, I can blame him. It's easy.

Yes, Mr. Anonymous, the rest of us can indeed blame him if he hit her. Your logic fails completely.

Yes. I can. And I do. And I also blame you, because people like you are part of the problem.
