Actress Amber Heard, star of Aquaman, broke the silence after suffering defeat to Johnny Depp over the libel case.
According to a report by Variety, Heard spoke with Savannah Guthrie on an episode of Today, which will air on Tuesday (14) on NBC about the lawsuit involving Johnny Depp. She explained that she understands the jury and doesn’t blame them for taking Depp’s side.
“I don’t blame them,” Heard said. “I really understand. He’s a beloved character and people feel like they know him. He’s a fantastic actor.”
Even though she sympathized with the decision, the actress claims that the hatred she suffers on social media is unfair, even suffering death threats from supporters of the former Pirates of the Caribbean star.
“But even someone who’s sure I deserve all this hate and vitriol, even if you think I’m lying, you still can’t look me in the eye and tell me that you think social media has been fair representation,” Heard commented. . “You can’t tell me you think that was fair.”
Heard lost the lawsuit to Depp and will have to pay the actor $10.4 million for defaming him in a 2018 Washington Post article. The actor will have to pay $ 2 million after being found guilty of one of the allegations of defamation against the actress.
