During her final emotional stint on the witness stand, actress belongs to amber testified that since her ex-husband’s trial, she has received “hundreds of death threats a day” — “thousands” in all Johnny Depp started.
“People want to put my baby in the microwave, and they tell me that,” Heard said.
The bitter and dueling defamation lawsuits against Depp and Heard have drawn passionate opinion around the world. Depp first sued Heard over her in 2018 Washington Post Editorial that she became a “public figure representing domestic violence” after seeking a restraining order against her ex-husband.
Heard’s attorneys argue that she had the right to speak about these issues in an editorial that didn’t even mention Depp. That Aquaman The actress echoed that First Amendment argument.
“I have a right to my vote and my name,” Heard testified. “I hope to get my vote back. It’s everything I want and I said so.”
An ongoing issue at the trial was online abuse by Depp’s supporters on social media, who frequently spotlight Twitter with hashtags such as #WeJustDontLikeYouAmber, #AmberHeardIsAnAbuser, #AmberHeardIsAPsychopath and #AmberTurd, a reference to Depp’s claim that Heard had her bed for convenience dirty jokes.
Heard denies the scatological claim, blaming the Yorkshire terrier with a bowel control issue from consuming Depp’s cannabis for the poo. A British judge believed Heard’s account, just as the judge credited 12 of her allegations of domestic violence.
Whatever the truth of the defecation claim, it became the punchline of a Saturday night live Sketch about the process.
Heard said that having fun online comes at a price.
“Maybe it’s easy to forget, but I’m human,” Heard said.
Heard shot Depp’s behavior in the courtroom and clearly stated, “I’m not sitting in this courtroom giggling.”
Throughout the trial, Depp avoided eye contact with Heard, often staring at a computer monitor through tinted glasses and at times appearing to joke with his attorney Benjamin Kau.
Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez offered an explanation for Depp’s lack of eye contact. An audio recording showed Depp promising that Heard will never look him in the eye again.
In his libel case, Depp alleges that Heard is the one who abused him, and she was recorded saying that a judge and jury would not believe the testimony that he, “a man,” was the victim of a “fair.” fight” between them is two.
On cross-examination, Vasquez grilled Heard just as hard as she did during Heard’s first stint in the stands.
Vasquez, who has gained a cult following from Depp supporters, asked Heard if the public anger was because her “lies” were “exposed to the world multiple times.”
To illustrate alleged lies, Vasquez showed Heard a photo of the actress outside of court a day after the actress received her restraining order.
Unlike the first day Heard went to court, she didn’t appear to have a bruise in this photo.
Heard suggested this was because she was wearing makeup. Vasquez also grilled Heard over recent testimonies from a former TMZ employee, who told a jury that the famous tabloid received a tip about the original, apparent bruise.
This is an evolving story.
