Amber Heard will sit down for a full televised interview after losing her lawsuit against her ex-husband and actor Johnny Depp. The Aquarius actress will appear in an NBC exclusive interview alongside Savannah Gunthrie. The same was recorded on June 9.
The special episode airs Tuesday, June 14 and Wednesday, June 15 at 8 p.m. EST.
On June 1, the pirates of the caribbean star emerged victorious in his $50 million defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. The seven-member jury voted unanimously in his favor. Heard also had a partial win, winning one of the three counts.
In the NBC interview, Amber Heard revealed that she “don’t blame the jury”, adding that she fell for the “amazing actor”. Speaking of Depp, she said in the NBC special:
“He’s a much-loved character and people feel like they know him.”
During the interview, Amber Heard also spoke at length about the massive response she received on social media during the trial. She added that there was no “fair representation” on social media.
“Even someone who knows for sure that I deserve all this hate and vitriol, even if you think I’m lying, you still couldn’t tell me – look me in the eye and tell me – that you think on social media there is a fair representation. You can’t tell me you think this has been fair.”
Internet responds to Amber Heard’s latest interview clip
Netizens showed no sympathy for the 36-year-old actress. Many did not like that the actress came forward for an interview after her legal loss. Internet users believed that she appeared in the interview only to draw attention to herself.
Netizens were also not happy to hear her speak about the hate she received on social media. Several Twitter users stated that the internet found her not guilty in the trial, but the jury voted in favor of Johnny Depp.
A few tweets about the upcoming interview read:
Speaking about Heard’s motivation to appear on the air for an interview with Gunthrie, a spokesperson for the actress said:
Johnny Depp’s legal team covered the media with numerous statements and televised interviews for days after the verdict, and Depp himself did the same on social media. Ms. Heard was just going to react aggressively to what they did last week; she did so by expressing her thoughts and feelings, many of which she was not allowed to do on the witness stand.”
After the grueling six-week trial ended and Depp emerged victorious, Amber Heard released a statement saying she was “heartbroken” at the verdict. She also stated that Johnny Depp’s lawyers “were successful in getting the jury to overlook the most important issue of free speech.”
The danish girl actress also added that the evidence, which proved helpful in winning the case in the UK, was ignored.
Johnny Depp received $15 million in damages after his legal victory. Amber Heard would receive two million dollars in damages.
