Stanford law professor mocks Johnny Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez

A Stanford law professor was criticized for writing “offensive and derogatory tweets” about Johnny Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez.

Michele Dauber took to Twitter last Thursday, sharing a screenshot of Vasquez and accusing the superstar lawyer of “sucking male power.”

“Of all the female power-suckers, female lawyers are the worst of the bunch,” Dauber wrote. “Desperate to prove they are ‘real lawyers’ and understanding that being a woman undermines their identity as lawyers, they throw women under the bus as fast and as hard as they can.”

The Post reached out to Dauber and Stanford Law School for comment.

During Johnny Depp’s libel trial against ex-wife Amber Heard, Vasquez became a household name. Images of the glamorous lawyer interrogating Heard in the dock – calling her a liar and voraciously defending Depp against allegations of abuse – went viral on social media.

Vasquez was widely praised for her interrogation of Heard and was even promoted to partner at his law firm last week following Depp’s decisive victory in the case.

However, Dauber – who teaches at the prestigious Stanford Law School – clearly found Vasquez’s performance persuasive, tweeting his scathing criticisms last Thursday.

The teacher was promptly criticized for her harsh words about Vasquez, with a follower replying: “If your child was falsely accused of domestic violence, I bet you would love for this woman to help justify it.”

Dauber later retorted: “If my son was accused of DV [domestic violence] he’d have a lot more to worry about than a Pick Me Girl lawyer. But that’s not going to happen because I didn’t create a fucking wife-beating rapist.

Dauber also shared several other screenshots showing female attorneys photographed with male celebrities who have been accused of abuse, including Harvey Weinstein’s defense attorney Donna Rotunno.

Many people objected to Dauber’s inflammatory tweets, with several mocking the Stanford academic, saying she seemed important.

“Obviously, women need to get Michele’s approval before deciding who to represent. Michele is the person who decides all the choices for all the other women, apparently,” she said. one joked.

“Sorry Michele, I thought we understood that everyone is entitled to quality advice in the field of law. Unless you believe women can’t give quality advice. Maybe that’s what you’re complaining about?” another smart guy.

Meanwhile, a British lawyer told the Daily Mail that Dauber’s tweets about Vasquez could actually be defamatory – ironic as Vasquez just helped Depp win his libel case.

However, Dauber is doubling down on his tweets, which are still on his Twitter page as of Thursday afternoon.

The teacher has repeatedly tweeted the hashtag “#IStandWithAmberHeard” several times and says she received death threats after criticizing Vasquez on social media.

Dauber tweeted his disdain for Depp throughout his six-week libel trial, making headlines for claiming that Depp’s famous “Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise was racist.

Meanwhile, Vasquez did not respond to Dauber’s remarks.

The cool eagle will likely be too busy struggling with his newfound celebrity status.

Vasquez – who made an affectionate display with Depp in court, which led some to fantasize they would start dating – says his newfound fame is “overwhelming”.

Meanwhile, it was revealed on Thursday that the telegenic lawyer will appear in a documentary series about the Depp v. Heard, cementing his star status.
