THE WHAT? LVMH-owned Dior has revived its Sauvage fragrance ad featuring Johnny Depp after the actor was awarded damages in a now-infamous US defamation case, according to a report published by The Evening Standard.
THE DETAILS The controversial fragrance ad, which features Depp playing the guitar in a desert, aired on primetime US television last week.
THE WHY? UK courts found against Depp in a libel case in 2020, but a US jury awarded Depp damages for defamation while Heard was also handed compensation for comments made by Depp’s former lawyer branding her accusations of domestic abuse ‘a hoax’.
