High-profile celebrity divorces: who was supported by social network users

Let's remember the breakups of stars, which provided rich food for conversation on the Internet.

Breaking up a relationship is never easy. While some promise each other to be “friends forever,” others swear they won’t even look at each other. Because divorces are usually accompanied by infidelity, deception, lawsuits, etc. Hollywood is no exception. But the separations of stars are also complicated by the fact that they become the property of social networks. And lately, with cancel culture thriving, circumstances in your personal life can cause you to lose your job. In this review, we will recall the high-profile divorces that caused the Internet to boil.

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard

The process of publicly finding out who annoyed whom more during the marriage of these two became the most discussed legal proceedings of 2021. Most social media users took Depp's side. Heard's hatred has even been called "the worst example of cyberbullying." And support groups for victims of domestic violence have expressed concern that the trial has failed to provide a clear answer.

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston

A lot of sympathies and condolences were sent to Jennifer after photographs of her husband and Angelina Jolie hit the press. The partners in the film “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” went on vacation to Mexico after filming and had a great time there with Angelina’s adopted son Maddox. According to rumors, by this time the relationship between Pitt and Aniston had deteriorated irreversibly after she lost her child.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian

Even though the internet hasn't always been kind to Kardashian, she received a ton of support when her ex began an online vendetta. Kanye accused Kim of inability to raise children, shamed her for a bad example, threatened to kill her new boyfriend, comedian Pete Davidson, etc. Users accused the rapper of emotional abuse and advised Kardashian to sue him.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner

America's favorite actress, Jennifer Garner, received even more adoration during her breakup with Ben Affleck. The official reason was that the actor cheated on his wife with their children’s nanny. And although social media users' opinions of the Gone Girl star have improved since then, if they now have to choose between Garner and Affleck, the latter has no chance.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

Despite the fact that at first fans of both were very upset by the news of the divorce, they later calmed down when they learned from Miley’s own songs about her husband’s infidelity. Liam threatened to sue, almost losing his role in the series “The Witcher” due to the excitement. However, knowledgeable people immediately advised him not to wash dirty linen in public and not to fan the fire of indignation even more. The divorce will end, and becoming “cancelled” for many years is not the best prospect for an actor.
