Amber Heard has given her first sit-down interview following the verdict in the defamation lawsuit filed by her ex-husband Johnny Depp.
In May, a jury in Fairfax, Va., ruled in favour of Depp, 58, deciding he had in fact been defamed in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed penned by Heard, 36. The jury awarded him $10 million in compensatory damages and $350,000 in punitive damages (all U.S. dollars).
Heard was also awarded a partial win, receiving $2 million for a 2016 statement by Depp’s former lawyer and press agent that the jury found to be false and defamatory.

Heard sat for an interview with NBC’s Today show host Savannah Guthrie to discuss the verdict, the trial proceedings and the role of social media in forming an overwhelmingly pro-Depp public opinion.
On social media platforms like TikTok, most users are vehemently against Heard. As of June 13, the #justiceforjohnnydepp has over 20.7 billion views, while #justiceforamberheard has 92.4 million.
