The American actress, who is 63 years old, has been criticized for posting a picture of the famous and troubled actor Johnny Depp on her Instagram account.
Three days ago, the star of True Lies reposted a picture of the Pirates of the Caribbean actor with Jeff Beck, Michael McKean, and guest: road ready.
MOTLEY CREW REDUX,
she captioned the photo.
As soon as Lee Curtis shared the post on her account, angry fans started commenting and calling her out for supporting a violent person.
Delete this, Jamie,
one user wrote.
Looks like some are totally ignoring the court case and making themselves look ridiculous. How sad, you are a superstar and a woman, and yet you are supporting a problematic person,
Watch out, Depp might sue you,
a third user penned sarcastically.
Anyone who supports Johnny Depp in any way supports Domestic Abuse,
Supporting wife beaters, Jamie?
said someone else.
Many of Depp’s fans came to Lee Curtis’ defense during the backlash. They said that the Rum Diary actor won the case against Amber Heard, so no one should blame him or his friends for sticking up for him.
Don’t mind the trolls… Thanks for supporting JD! He deserves it,
one supporter commented under the photo.
I am sorry that AH supporters feel it necessary to try and shame you for your post of Johnny Depp and friends. They seem to verbally attack and bully anyone including his own daughter. They are doing a disservice to not only themselves but to true victims of DV,
another chimed in.
Some Freaky Friday fans also went to Twitter to show their support for the actress for siding with Depp.
I see people are now attacking Jamie Lee Curtis for posting a picture of Johnny Depp. He won in a fair televised trial where both parties had to do extensive disclosure and Amber Heard was caught in multiple lies. Leave him and the people who support him alone, for God’s sake,

The Halloween actress isn’t the first person in the media to get criticized for supporting the Pirates star. Two weeks ago, the Barbadian singer Rihanna got criticized for including Johnny in the fourth edition of her Savage X Fenty fashion show.
A source says that the 59-year-old actor did not walk the runway, but he did make a short appearance in Volume 4 of the show on November 9. In the fourth installment, Depp was the first male celebrity to be in the spotlight.
According to Variety,
his brief cameo follows in the vein of other celeb moments, like Cindy Crawford’s appearance in the 2021 Savage X Fenty showcase.
Other confirmed celebrities for the “Vol. 4” show include Rihanna herself, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” actor Winston Duke, “Abbott Elementary” Emmy winner Sheryl Lee Ralph, Marvel’s “Shang-Chi” star Simu Liu, “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson, Irina Shayk, Marsai Martin and performances by Burna Boy and Anitta.
Savage X Fenty Vol. 4 came out on Amazon Prime Video on November 9.
