The Defamation Lawsuit between the Pirates of the Caribbean Actor, Johnny Depp, and his Ex-Wife Amber Heard, was followed by millions of viewers across the globe and caught everyone’s attention. But the Attention slowly shifted during the process and a new Internet sensation was born: Mr. Depp’s Lawyer, Camille Vasquez.
The 37-year-old Lawyer has turned, unintentionally, from a normal person to the show stealer of this trial. Camille Vasquez mesmerized the viewers with her stern and sharp legal style while successfully examining the opponents, witnesses, and Amber Heard herself.
One specific event of the court trial is now viral, and posted all over social media. It’s a short clip of Camille Vasquez repeatedly ‘objecting’ the questions or statements from Ms. Heard’s Lawyer during Ms. Heard’s testimony. Ms. Vasquez ‘objected’ nearly all of Ms. Heard’s attorney’s questions, leaving her so baffled and haphazard that the attorney was seen struggling to rephrase and saying, ‘I’m trying, I’m trying.’.
The clip got so much attention that users used the term ‘object’ to make viral videos. In these TikToks, the users object to their family and friends turning the Lawsuit in a new viral TikTok Trend.
But not only the video of Ms. Vasquez objecting Amber Heard’s lawyer has gained over 27 million views. Even videos with the hashtag #CamilleVasquez has gathered millions of views in a couple of days.
So, who is the new viral star-attorney Camille Vasquez?
Camille Vasquez was born to Colombian and Cuban parents in San Francisco. She graduated in 2006 from University of Southern California, and in 2010 she graduated from Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles.
For the last couple of years, Ms. Vasquez has been working at Brown Rudnick, the high-profile law firm who represented Johnny Depp.
Even prior to the public trail, which showcased her incredible sharp skills to the public, Camille was famous in the Law-World way before. In 2021, she was named as one of Best Lawyer magazine’s ‘One to Watch’ attorneys.
Considering her incredible and shark like performance at the trial, it is not a wonder that Camille is now wanted by all Hollywood. One source said “Talent agents are circling Camille because they recognize that she is the unicorn — a smart, savvy, poised attorney whose impactful performance during the trial propelled her to a rare level of visibility.”
Now let’s jump into how Camille Vasquez rose to fame and some famous court moments!
Ms. Vasquez has been getting worldwide attention through her performance during the Depp’s defamation trial against Heard. She is especially well beloved for her cross-examination of Amber Heard herself. For Instance Camille called her out for ‘faking her bruises and lying about her statements and other witnesses’.
One of the most memorable moments is, when Amber Heard is avoiding answering the questions and instead is facing and talking to the jury. The seemingly annoyed Ms. Vasquez called Amber Heard out for her behavior by saying: “Miss Heard, there is no question pending. And I would appreciate it if you wouldn’t be making an argument to the jury,”
