It’s late posting this video, but recently in a court case, surrounding, Johnny Depp Trial and Amber Heard, there were talks and evidence of domestic violence, especially in that of Amber Heard being the abuser. Even though we are late to posting this video because of how long it takes for animation to generally get completed, we hope you can still watch this video. The purpose of this video is to raise awareness that domestic abuse can happen to anyone, and not just limited to women.
DISCLAIMER: This video may be triggering to some as it discusses abuse and domestic violence. Gender pronouns such as “h/his” and “s/her” will be used for referencing individuals who identify as male or female.
