During the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard case, fans were divided into two groups. Same fans say that it is an injustice against women. Some say that men are also falsely accused in cases. But the truth revealed after the decision of court and the Will Smith and Jada Smith case are also the reason. From these cases , men also saying that #MENTOO face mental issues, men have their own problems.
