In a clip shared online by fans who already started watching the show that premiered this Wednesday on prime video, the controversial actor is seen with his messy ponytail and his signature layered necklaces. Depp appears approximately 20 minutes into the show, which premiered on Prime Video this week.
He emerges from behind a tree, wearing a long, loose-fitting jacket with matching dark pants. Depp is the first male guest star to appear in this “star moment” of the event, following in the footsteps of previous guests (Cindy Crawford, Erykah Badu).
Depp came into the limelight for roughly 40 seconds before moving through a group of dancers. The general public did not, however, ignore it.
However, Years & Years singer Olly Alexander tweeted after news broke of Depp’s cameo that he will no longer wear pieces from Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty clothing line as a result of the actor’s involvement.
Now, y’all know Twitter was quick to react and had a lot to say about his cameo. While some fans questioned his appearance following all the backlash he received from his trial with ex-wife Amber Heard — even though he won his defamation case… a bunch of fans seemed to love Depp in the show. Here’s what some had to say:
“Oh holy ……Goddesses, thanks for this your beautiful gift … just wow #JohnnyDeppIsALegend #JohnnyDepp #JohnnyDeppRises #JohnnyDeppIsARockStar,” one fan tweeted.
Another said, “The sensual seductive walk, smile & eyes…omg! This man is perfection. & the fact that he needs not expose himself to make you feel enrapt is something truly rare these days…which makes him all the more worthy!!! 😍 #JohnnyDeppRises #JohnnyDeppIsALegend #ThankYouRihanna.”
A loyal fan said “Love the clips BUT make sure to watch the @rihanna @SavageXFenty series on @amazon give them the views to show support! #JohnnyDeppRises.”
He’s appearance in Savage X Fenty Vol. 4 marks one of the actor’s most high-profile returns to the limelight after winning the case.
The full Savage X Fenty show is now available to stream on Prime Video.
Depp’s appearance in Savage X Fenty Vol. 4 marks one of the actor’s most high-profile returns to the limelight after winning defamation lawsuit against Heard, who had stated in a Washington Post op-ed that she was a victim of domestic abuse. She did not mention Depp by name, but his lawyers argued that the piece caused substantial damage to his career and reputation.
