Courtney Love is apologizing for sharing her thoughts on the ongoing Johnny Depp–Amber Heard defamation lawsuit, after a series of videos in which she appeared was “accidentally” posted online.
In a new social media post shared to her own Instagram account on Saturday, Love, 57, indirectly addressed her previous statements found in a series of videos shared earlier in the weekend by her friend Jessica Reed Kraus‘s Instagram account.
Courtney Love Walks Back Her Comments On The Johnny Depp and Amber Heard Trial
“I engaged in expressing thoughts online. The platform accidentally posted a story I didn’t want public (I’m sure it was not deliberate),” Love wrote in the caption next to a video in which she is seen walking her dog.
“Was it a genuine, expression of support for someone whose been a wondrous presence in our lives?” she later added, referencing Depp, 58, whom she said saved her from a drug overdose in the 90s and adored her daughter Frances Bean in the first series of videos.
“Is it ANY OF MY F–KING BUSINESS? No.”
Love also wrote, “I certainly don’t always do the right thing,” going on to add, “I want to show neutral support for a friend. I dont want to bully. I’ve been bullied enough. I did not want to express my own bias / internalized mysoginy [sic].”
“I want nothing to do with contributing more online bullying to someone enduring being bullied like noone ever has been online. Ever,” the musician later continued.
“In my program of recovery, ‘when we were wrong, we promptly admitted it’ I was wrong,” she added.
“The only important takeaway, of what was posted, is that I expressed that we should all stop having ‘fun with schadenfraude [sic]’ (look it up: ‘Delight in another’s down fall’????)& show sincere empathy for both parties,” Love concluded.
“If I hurt anyone, please accept my amends. Back to my offline life.”
Many were quick to respond to the posting in a positive light.
“You were supporting a friend who needs it, I can’t see the issue with that,” one user commented.
Followed by: “I didn’t see anything inappropriate about your post. I found it to be quite thoughtful. I appreciate you!”
While another said: “I agree with what you’d said! And empathy on both sides makes sense. I’m sure justice will come and there’s learning all round. No one causes this much damage if they aren’t coming from hurt.”
