“I actually understand. He’s a beloved character and people feel they know him. He’s a fantastic actor,” she said of Depp.
Heard called the social media frenzy surrounding her case “unfair” as many posts on TikTok and Twitter overwhelmingly appeared to favor Depp during the six-week trial.
The TikTok hashtag “Justice for Amber Heard” received 27 million views, while one for Depp raked in 20 billion views.
“I don’t care what one thinks about me or what judgments you want to make about what happened in the privacy of my own home, in my marriage, behind closed doors. I don’t presume the average person should know those things. And so I don’t take it personally,” she said.
