    Amber Heard Calls Out Social Media “Hate And Vitriol” She Received During Johnny Depp Defamation Trial

    Amber Heard openly addressed the social media backlash she faced during her defamation trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp. During the trial, Depp received massive support from fans while Heard received backlash and became fodder for memes. Fans even started signing petitions to boycott the actress in every possible way.

    All the hatred made Heard really upset. She recently spoke about how social media wasn’t “fair” to her during the course of the entire trial. It all started with her 2018 op-ed published in The Washington Post, in which she stated that she was “the public figure representing domestic abuse”. Although the post didn’t specify Depp’s name, the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star sued his ex-wife for defamation, and she countersued him for $100m. Finally, after a hectic trial, the jury’s verdict was in favor of Johnny.

    Amber Heard Says Social Media Was Not “Fair” To Her


    Amber Heard slammed the social media trolling she had to endure throughout her high-profile defamation trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp. The actress said it was not “fair” to her.

    “Even somebody who is sure I’m deserving of all this hate and vitriol, even if you think that I’m lying, you still couldn’t tell me — look me in the eye and tell me — that you think on social media there’s been a fair representation,” she said during an interview with NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie.


    You cannot tell me that you think that this has been fair,” Heard said. She also told Guthrie that she doesn’t blame the jury for its verdict. “I actually understand,” she said. “He’s a beloved character and people feel they know him. He’s a fantastic actor.”
