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

Many of his posts include the #IStandWithAmberHeard hashtag.
The law professor also wrote in the thread that “some women have learned to seek the approval of men in the hope that they will not be raped, abused, or humiliated.”
Daube included a series of photos of female lawyers with men who have been charged or convicted of sex crimes and called them “skirts.” In a snap of Harvey Weinstein with his attorney, Donna Rotunno, she wrote “Harvey Weinstein’s skirt.”
The backslash to Dauber’s posts criticizing Vasquez was swift. “Damn, 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 replies called Dauber “jealous” and said it was “not right to cut down minority women.”
Vasquez, 37, was praised for her tightly controlled cross-examination of Heard, grilling her on inconsistencies in her testimony.
She also delivered part 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 law firm Brown Rudnick.
Dauber’s relationship with Heard, 36, dates back at least six years. She was pictured with Heard, Gabourey Sidibe, Frieda Pinto and Lena Dunham at the Glamor Women of Year awards ceremony in 2016.
Dauber called Depp supporters “demented ghouls” and lambasted them for stalking her and creating a fake Twitter account using her dead daughter’s photo and name.

“These people are trash, they are trash, they are fucking trash,” the professor wrote.
It’s not just Vasquez and Depp supporters that Dauber has targeted. She called the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise and Depp’s character Captain Jack Sparrow a racist, writing that there is an ‘overlap between anti-women and anti-black individuals’ among Depp’s fan base. Depp.
Stanford did not immediately return a request for comment.
