Johnny Depp gave his fans what they wanted as he left the Fairfax County Courthouse in Virginia last week — and now the footage is going viral.
Hordes of his #JusticeforJohnny diehards line up daily see him in court for his ongoing $50 million defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard. (Some are even infamously trying to scalp their court-entry wristbands to the highest bidders — with some shelling out as much as $30,000 to get in.)
Crowdpleaser Depp, 58, recently surprised them by doing his legendary Captain Jack Sparrow voice from Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise.
His followers shouted out their love and admiration for the “Edward Scissorhands” icon as he left the courtroom from the backseat SUV window.
In a viral clip posted to Twitter last week but picking up steam Monday as proceedings relaunch, someone shouted “We adore your hair!” He waved and showed off his ponytail.
A fan then called out: “You’ll always be our Captain Jack Sparrow!”
The cinematic “Cry Baby” then delighted his adoring public by talking back in the voice of his iconic character: “He’s still around somewhere. I see him now and again. He shows up now and again,” Depp drawled in the distinguishable tone of Captain Jack.
The now-viral clip has racked up nearly one million views. (Warning: There’s some adult language dropped in the clip.)
Depp is suing Heard, 36, for defamation after she penned a 2018 op-ed in the Washington Post dubbing herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” The two were married from 2015 to 2017, and the article is the center of the ongoing court case in which the “Aquaman” actress is countersuing her ex for $100 million.
Depp wasn’t named, but he claims Heard decimated his reputation and career and cost him millions of dollars in work. Shortly after the piece was published, the “Public Enemies” actor was dropped from a “Pirates of the Caribbean” reboot.
While Heard supporters report being subjected to a barrage of misogynistic hate online, an A-list parade of Depp’s “Pirates” costars have spoken out about the trial and defended the Kentucky native.
“I have no doubt Johnny will emerge with his good name and wonderful heart revealed to the world, and life will be better than it ever was for him and his family,” his “Dark Shadows’”co-star Eva Green, 41, posted to Instagram on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Orlando Bloom, 42, told the BBC that working with him during 2003’s “The Curse of the Black Pearl” was a career highlight he would never forget.

“I got to work with one of my heroes, Johnny Depp, and to see how he goes about business, which was really inspiring for me at this stage in my career,” Bloom, 45, said.
He also gushed over Depp’s dedication to his craft: “I knew he’d bring something unique to it the way he always does with his roles. I just didn’t know what it would be when I saw it, it was fantastic.”
