Amber Heard vs Johnny Depp verdict lasted for 6 weeks trial riding. Finally on 1st June 2022 Depp won the defamation case against Heard.
Heard posted a picture on Instagram. In it she wrote, “The disappointment I feel today is beyond words. I’m heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, and influence.”
The 36-year-old said she is even more disappointed in “what this verdict means for women,” calling it a “setback.” “It sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke up could be publicly shamed and humiliated,” she said. “It sets back the idea that violence against women should be taken seriously.”
“I believe Johnny’s attorneys succeeded in getting the jury to overlook the key issue of Freedom of Speech and ignore evidence that was so conclusive that we won in the U.K.,” Heard said. In 2020, Depp sued the Sun newspaper and its parent company in the U.K. After it published an article that called him a “wife beater,” BBC News reports.
In her statement about the recent case, Heard said she was sad she lost. “But I am sadder still that I seemed to have lost a right I thought I had as an American — to speak freely and openly.”
