Amber Heard has now reported back for the first time after the verdict against her in a TV interview and commented on the course of the process. She doesn’t blame the jury. You understand why the jury ruled in favor of Johnny Depp. “He’s a popular character and people feel like they know him.” After all, he’s a fantastic actor, she explained. However, she herself felt pilloried and treated unfairly by the public. “My trial wasn’t fair,” she said.
Speaking on NBC’s Today, Amber Heard insisted she didn’t take the negative media coverage of her: “I don’t care what people think of me or how people judge what happens in the privacy of my own home, Happened in my marriage or behind closed doors.” Actually, the public shouldn’t know about it. “And that’s why I don’t take it personally,” she assured.
But what she cannot let go is the negative reporting on social media. She finds that unfair: Even if someone is really sure that she deserves all “this hate and this nastiness” and you think she’s lying – you can’t look her in the eye and tell her that it is given fair treatment on social media. “You can’t tell me you think that’s fair,” she pointed out angrily.
With the unequal distribution of votes on social media, there was a large majority of users who had testified their sympathies for Johnny Depp: So the TikTok hashtag “Justice for Amber Heard” (in German: “Justice for Amber Heard”) only had Received 27 million views while the Johnny Depp hashtag was used 20 billion times
