What Did iO Do to Lily Rose Depp?
Lily Rose Depp is the offspring of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, who have amassed a devoted social media following due to her genetically blessed features and cool kid lifestyle. At 16 years old, this 16-year-old actress has quickly gained notoriety as Chanel muse and fashion campaign star.
Last year, when she joined a campaign to support sexual fluidity, the internet went wild with criticism labeling her as “gay”. But this wasn’t her intention – in an interview with Nylon last month, she explained that her mission was simply to show support for not having to label one’s sexuality.
She participated in iO Tillett Wright’s Self Evident Truths project, which highlights people “anywhere on the LGBTQ spectrum” as ambassadors for sexual inclusivity and gender equality. Notable celebrities included Gaby Hoffmann, Kylie Minogue, Penn Badgley and Sia.
This year, photographer iO Tillett Wright’s Instagram account has featured thousands of photographs depicting people from “anywhere on the vast spectrum.” In one such photo, daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis is seen smiling broadly as she takes a shot with an inquisitive expression on her face. Despite its apparent sexiness, however, there’s an accompanying caption explaining that she is not in any type of relationship.
In this latest photo, the teenager is shown with her hair down and no makeup or dress – an attempt to keep from revealing her true gender. Instead, she wears a white shirt, black pants, and shoes featuring an open toe.
The caption reads, “I fall somewhere on the vast spectrum – and that’s okay with me.” She’s clearly coming out as gay woman, though this isn’t her first public outing. Earlier this year she appeared in an Instagram post from iO Tillett Wright’s campaign titled “Self-Evident Truths,” which focused on LGBTQ+ issues and highlighted 10,000 Americans who “identify as anything other than 100% straight”.
After receiving an abundance of hate comments about her gender identity, she took action and spoke up. Now an advocate for sexual fluidity and gender identity, she continues to fight back against these attacks.
She’s even started her own music blog called iO Rose, featuring interviews and videos with LGBTQ+ celebrities and their supporters. This has encouraged a generation of young people to break out of their comfort zones and take action against discrimination and mistreatment.
Due to her social media posts, she has received an outpouring of hate and support from both fans and members of the LGBT+ community. Many have taken to the platform to stand in support of her decision to speak out against her father’s abusive past.
But her relationship with her father appears to have remained unchanged. Indeed, she’s actively supported his ex-wife Amber Heard as she fights Depp in court over allegations of domestic violence. On Friday, Heard will make a appearance in court representing herself against the actor; according to Camille Vasquez’s claims that Depp physically and verbally assaulted Heard and her children multiple times over many years.
