With the infamous Depp v Heard trial set to end this Friday, I wonder why we are all gripping this story with hungry talons.

To the audience, this is a simple tale: a hero brought down by a scheming witch, a good man taken in by a bad woman.

As Chirs Rock announced onstage at the Oscars: "We should believe all women, just not Amber Heard". 

Deemed to be just a punchline, Heard has no chance of winning regardless of whether she is telling the truth or not.
