Amber Heard's sister, Whitney, has slammed the Video Music Awards for allowing Johnny Depp to appear.

Whitney took to Twitter to call out MTV, who runs the award show, for airing a pre-recorded clip of Johnny in a spacesuit.

It's Johnny's first major TV appearance since his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber.

The pre-recorded clip showed Johnny flying above the stage while saying: "I just want you guys to know that I'm available for birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, Bat Mitzvahs, weddings, wakes, any old thing you need.

"And you know what? I needed the work."

And it's safe to say his appearance divided a lot of people, including Amber's sister, with Whitney writing on her Instagram stories: "@MTV you're disgusting and clearly desperate! I really hope that none of the people that made this call have daughters."

Her words were written over an edited image titled 'DVMAs I stand with Amber Heard.'

DV is an abbreviation for domestic violence, accusations from each party were at the centre of Amber and Johnny's long-running court case. The jury ruled in favour of Johnny and Amber was subsequently ordered to pay her ex-husband more than $10 million in damages.

While many people on Twitter echoed Whitney's statement, others loved the performance, with one user saying: "He wasn’t even nominated, but Johnny Depp won the #VMAs."

A second chimed in: "Johnny Depp hasn’t said a word for 3 months. He’s been booked and busy while the other side is still obsessed and won’t leave him alone. I love how they don’t exist to him, meanwhile, he’s living rent-free in their heads."

The VMAs have not responded to the debate surrounding Johnny's appearance. UNILAD has reached out for comment.

Amber's sister was a vocal supporter of hers throughout the trial. After the trial came to an end, she wrote on Instagram: “I still stand with you, sissy. 

“Yesterday, today and tomorrow I will always be proud of you for standing up for yourself, for testifying both here in Virginia and in the UK, and for being the voice of so many who can’t speak to the things that happen behind closed doors.

“We knew that this was going to be an uphill battle and that the cards were stacked against us. But you stood up and spoke out regardless.

“I am so honoured to testify for you, and I would do it a million times over because I know what I saw and because the truth is forever on your side."
