A Stanford law professor attacked Johnny Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez in a series of scathing tweets accusing her of “sucking on male power”.
Michele Dauber, a supporter of Amber Heard, reprimanded Vasquez a day after a jury in Virginia awarded Depp $10.35 million in his charge of defamation against his ex-wife.
“Of all the women who suck at male power, female lawyers are definitely the worst of the bunch,” she tweeted on June 2, under a photo of Vasquez giving a press conference after the team’s win.
“In a desperate attempt to prove that they are ‘real lawyers’ and understand that being a woman undermines their identity as lawyers, they are throwing women under the bus as hard and fast as they can,” Dauber continued.

Many of her posts include the hashtag #IStandWithAmberHeard.
The law professor also wrote in the thread that “some women have learned to seek male approval in the hope that they will not be raped, abused or humiliated.”
Daube added a series of photos of female lawyers with men accused or convicted of sex crimes, calling them “skirts.” In a photo of Harvey Weinstein with his attorney, Donna Rotunno, she wrote “Harvey Weinstein’s skirt.”
The backlash to Dauber’s posts criticizing Vasquez was swift. “Sorry Stanford is in trouble. What a view of life,” wrote one Twitter user.
An account titled Fair Lilith asked, “Please explain to me how being a woman undermines my identity as a lawyer?”

Other comments called Dauber “jealous” and said it didn’t “seem right to cut down minority women”.
Vasquez, 37, was praised for her rigorously controlled cross-examination of Heard, disapproving of her over inconsistencies in her testimony.
She also provided some of the opening and closing statements. The young attorney’s performance at the Fairfax County Circuit Court trial earned her a promotion to become a partner at her firm of Brown Rudnick.
Dauber’s relationship with Heard, 36, goes back at least six years. She was photographed with Heard, Gabourey Sidibe, Frieda Pinto and Lena Dunham at the Glamor Women of Year awards ceremony in 2016.
Dauber called Depp supporters “demented ghosts” and taunted them for trolling her and creating a fake Twitter account with her dead daughter’s photo and name.

“These people are scum, they are junk, they are complete garbage,” the professor wrote.
It was not just supporters of Vasquez and Depp that Dauber was aiming. She called the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise and Depp’s character, Captain Jack Sparrow, racist, writing that there is “an overlap between anti-women and anti-black individuals” among Depp’s fans.
Stanford did not immediately return a request for comment.
