Amber Heard has not received the warmest public response during her $50 million defamation trial with Johnny Depp. The former married couple has thrown out some insane accusations. The court proceedings have become a media circus that has engulfed the conversation in American popular culture.
Depp sued Heard after a Washington Post op-ed accusing him of abuse. Thus far, the testimony and evidence presented in court have heavily favored Johnny Depp. Throngs of loyal fans have shown their support outside of the courthouse, online, and in diners and taverns around the country.
During her testimony today, Amber Heard broke down on the stand. The Aquaman star claimed she receives thousands of death threats every single day. Heard believes they’re all coming from fans of Johnny Depp, according to a video shared by TMZ.
Amber accused Johnny of doing nothing to stem the tide of online hate. She even went so far as to hint that she believes he is encouraging the behavior. Amber Heard testified that she just wants to be left alone.
Amber’s testimony also included a tearful recollection of how she believes Johnny Depp ruined her acting career. She noted that when she does get work, she is trigged all over the set. These emotional wounds have allegedly slowed production on some projects.
Johnny Depp is the clear winner in the court of public opinion. It remains to be seen if the jury will be swayed by Amber Heard’s emotional testimony. We may know very soon, as testimony is expected to wrap up this week.
