For the first time since the sensational trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, the latter will be heard extensively. She gave an interview on the Today program on the American channel NBC. A preview of it makes it clear that the process is heavy on her stomach.
In the short snippet of the interview NBC shared online as a teaser, Heard says she doesn’t blame the jury — who put her at a disadvantage against Depp. “I understand. He is a beloved person and people think they know him. He is a fantastic actor.”
The actress previously points to social media as the culprit for her conviction. The case was widely posted on Tiktok and Twitter and the vast majority supported Depp. 27 million people used the hashtag ‘Justice for Amber Heard’, while the same one was used more than 20 billion times for Depp.
“I don’t really care what anyone thinks of me or what they think about what happened in my house behind closed doors,” Heard said. “I don’t think the average person should know these things either. So I don’t take this personally. But even someone who is convinced that I deserve all the hate and lie, even they cannot tell me that there was an honest representation of reality on social media.”
She also understands the jury’s verdict, she says. “What do you want? Those people had to listen for three weeks to testimonials from people who were paid for it and towards the end even ordinary people who had nothing to do with it.”
