Amber Heard has been all over the news the past few weeks due to the highly publicized trial with Johnny Depp, which she ultimately lost. Since the trial began, the actress has been subjected to thousands of memes over the internet. But it seems like the actress has had enough of the internet and has now spoken up against the online criticism. The actress’ first televised interview since the trial’s verdict is set to air at 8 pm EST on 17 June on NBC.
Amber Heard says that social media was unfair towards her during the trial
In the interview with Savannah Guthrie, Amber Heard talked about her trial being unfair.
“But even somebody who is sure I’m deserving of all this hate and vitriol, even if you think that I’m lying, you still couldn’t look me in the eye and tell me that you think on social media there’s been a fair representation. You cannot tell me that you think that this has been fair.”

Amber Heard broke her silence and talks about how the internet played the judge in the trial.
Amber Heard claims that Johnny Depp won the trial because he is a “beloved character”
The actress also stated,
“I don’t blame them. I actually understand. He’s a beloved character, and people feel they know him. He’s a fantastic actor.”
In the statement, Amber Heard claims that Johnny Depp won due to his popularity as an actor and his fanfare and not because of the evidence presented in court during the trial. This is similar to what her lawyer said about Johnny Depp winning the case due to social media’s influence.
Amber’s statement met with criticism online
Amber’s claims were not met well by Johnny Depp’s supporters on the internet. She was once again subjected to criticism for her remarks.
Amber Heard filmed an interview where she complains about social media & it not being fair. She wasn't complaining about fairness for 6 years when JD was being ridiculed & she was lauded. Notice how she conveniently left out that it was her & her team running to the media 1st. pic.twitter.com/TlszO01wt3

Needless to say, the internet is not a fan of Amber Heard and is always ready to call out the actress. Recently, Johnny Depp’s supporters also urged DC to remove the actress from the sequel of Aquaman. It looks like the trial’s verdict will have far-reaching effects on the actress’s public image and career.
