Johnny Depp thanks “loyal and unwavering” fans in first TikTok

Johnny Depp received a warm welcome on TikTok.

The 58-year-old entertainer posted his first video on Tuesday to thank fans – and they’re already going crazy for it: his video has garnered 2.7 million views in less than two hours since he shared it on the platform Has.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star joined TikTok on Tuesday and had 4.5 million loyal followers.

Accompanied by Love Joys’ “Stranger,” his clip thanked followers for their support during his controversial defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.

On both Instagram and TikTok, he wrote alongside his post: “To all my most valued, loyal and unwavering supporters. We’ve been everywhere together, we’ve seen everything together.”

“We walked the same path together,” the Kentucky native continued. “We did the right thing together, all because you cared about it. And now we will all move forward together.”

The fan tribute continued: “You are my employers as always and once again I’m limited to not saying thank you in any way other than just saying thank you. So thank you. My love & respect, JD.”
