American actress Amber Heard continues to make headlines even after the defamation lawsuit already ended months ago with her ex-husband Johnny Depp winning the case. According to the former’s fans, the court did not rule the right verdict and instead favored the latter in the trial. As such, they continue to make new theories just to support their bias, with the recent one calling out the verdict as the propaganda of western media.
Amber Heard Fans Calling The Defamation Trial’s Verdict Unfair
The ex-couple Amber Heard and Johnny Depp were involved in a long-term legal battle that turned the tables when the defamation trial started. The 36-year-old actress ever since the trial started was getting indulged in a negative light as things started to unveil. Additionally, many secrets surfaced including the previously leaked documents which gave more insight into her past.
Even after the proofs were presented to the court, her fans were totally against the idea of the actress losing the trial. Now that the verdict has already been declared, her supporters are not accepting it and rather ranting that it was social media that influenced the trial’s outcome.
To validate this point, one of her fans expressed her opinion by involving the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle in the context. For the unversed, the latter has been a victim of racial slur and slander and received major public backlash ever since she became a part of the royal family.
Heard fans, to make their opinion more valid, included the royal member in her statement and shared that women are often targeted by the media. Depp winning the trial is propaganda by western media with his fans following the same by supporting the actor rather than questioning their “motives.”

People's susceptibility to propaganda is genuinely scary because ya'll are too busy pointing the finger at dictatorships when western media does the exact same thing but of course people here don't see it. These women are great examples of victims of media propaganda.

I'm pro "Not to harass Amber" and monetize off of her.
At the end of the day she is a human being

Not only her fans, but even the Aquaman actress herself has similar thoughts about the defamation lawsuit verdict being unjust. She previously shared with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie that “I think (the) vast majority of this trial was played out on social media.”
After the actress wrote an op-ed that defamed her ex-husband, the Internet started to divide itself into both sides. However, the majority supported Depp while defaming the actress on the platform.

Just after the couple got separated in 2017, Heard the very next year wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post claiming herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse”. Though she didn’t mention the actor by his name, the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s career was majorly affected due to that as he was then one of Hollywood’s most notable stars.
He then filed a defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife demanding $50 million for tarnishing his reputation while the actress countersued him for $100 million. The 59-year-old actor won the lawsuit with the jury awarding him $10.35m in damages while the former was awarded $2m for her counter-claims.
