Amber Heard took to the witness stand in the defamation suit. Netizens say she’s using movie quotes for testimony.
American actress Amber Heard gave her testimony on May 4, 2022, against her case in the defamation lawsuit filed by her ex-husband Johnny Depp, who is accusing her of making false claims that he abused her.
Minutes after the trial featuring her went live, several social media users and Johnny Depp supporters began spreading rumors that the 36-year-old star was “acting” during the testimony and was passing off lines from films as her own thoughts.
Various allegations concerning Amber Heard’s first few hours of testimony were made in a popular Twitter thread.
The star of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ films is suing Heard, 36, for $50 million, saying she defamed him when she claimed she was a victim of domestic abuse. Heard has counter-sued for $100 million, arguing Depp smeared her by calling her a liar.
The legal case hinges on a December 2018 opinion piece Heard authored in the Washington Post.
The article never mentioned Depp by name, but his lawyer told jurors it was clear Heard was referencing him. The couple’s divorce was finalized in 2017 after less than two years of marriage.
