Amber Heard smear Youtube videos are making thousands of dollars per month – MARCA

Amber Heard has been the center of attenton for the last three months, her trial with Johnny Depp is amongst the most researched things on the Internet. However, very few center on the core issue of her accusations. Domestic abuse has been at the forefront of the #MeToo movement and this latest lost case has affected its credibility.

Unfortunately, there are many domestic abuse and sexual assault victims who don’t get to tell their story in such a public platform. For Heard, losing that credibility has made her the target of sensationalist Youtubers who profit from her misfortune. But how much do these people make in terms of money from creating these smear videos?

That Umbrella Guy.

Last Tuesday, Amber Heard’s partner Eve Barlow exposed one of these Youtubers who goes by the name of That Umbrella Guy. He is arguably one of the most profitable Youtube ccounts that deal with reporting on celebrity gossip. There is no way of knowing how he gets his information but he tends to have exclusive content that eventually becomes viral.

His approach comes with the intention of always smearing Amber Heard and trying to paint men as the true victims of abuse in these contexts. Monthly, this Youtuber makes around $80,000 a month, which transforms roughly into $1 million per year. However, the folks at Newsweek had to fact-check this information to find out he is making around $64k a month.

Eve Barlow has created her own campaign in order to expose accounts like this one, she decided to dox That Umbrella Guy and revealed his identity to the public. But this is only the tip of the iceberg because there are many more accounts that profit from Amber Heard’s and other celebrities’ misfortunes. To name a few, Popcorned Planet recently revealed a set of pictures of Heard allegedly making out with Cara Delevigne.

TMZ is an all-time classic when it comes to celebrity gossip. The New York Post also writes a fair share of these reports and constantly harass celebrities in their most private moments. That’s the price of being famous, they lose any sense of privacy in exchange for millions of dollars and success.
