Johnny Depp Die-Hards mock Amber Heard for ‘fake crying’ during testimony

He starred in the 1990 hit ‘Cry-Baby’ – but Johnny Depp’s die-hard supporters have accused his ex-wife Amber Heard of being the one to put on an over-the-top emotional display.

Depp’s fans have taken to social media, accusing Heard of being a “bad actress” and “faking crying” after testifying at her Blockbuster defamation trial this week.

Heard, 36, spent two days describing Depp’s alleged abuse and said her former spouse, 58, slapped her in the face and conducted a “cave search”, allegedly believing she had hidden his cocaine in her vagina .

The Aquaman actress was often emotional as she answered questions about her tumultuous marriage. Many viewers who watched the televised trial were convinced of its authenticity, and #IStandWithAmberHeard started trending on Twitter Thursday afternoon.

But Depp supporters slammed the starlet on Twitter and TikTok, claiming she falsified her statement because she didn’t shed a single tear.

Heard’s rep told The Post he couldn’t directly comment on the smear on social media.

“OMG, I’M DYING. Amber Heard is the worst actor ever,” popular producer Andy Signore tweeted to his 45,700 followers. “This fake, incoherent PERFORMANCE is disgusting… Too much detail everywhere, fake sighs, forced tears and looks at the jury… This is an EMBARRASSMENT to all survivors.”

“I looked at some of Amber Heard’s testimony today. How does someone cry without tears? Is it a medical condition? Whenever I cry or see someone crying, it’s a real mess that requires several tissues, if not a small mop,” the poet said Joseph Massey posted.

Another accused Heard of dressing “The performance of her life.”

Meanwhile, videos accusing Heard of falsifying her “cringe” statement have garnered millions of likes on TikTok. Videos with the hashtag #JusticeForJohnny have been viewed a whopping 8.2 billion times.

A viral video showing Heard collapsing on the stand was accompanied by a voiceover from Kim Kardashian, who said, “Ew this is so scary. Guilty.” It garnered more than 5 million likes.

Elsewhere, aspiring actress Meredith Bull created a clip that garnered more than 180,000 likes and said she was skeptical of Heard’s statement as a fellow actress.

“What I saw today was a tremendous accomplishment for the jury,” Bull explained, adding that she felt Heard was trying to make eye contact with each juror.

“I don’t know about you, but every time I recall trauma, I try not to see if each person is trying to make eye contact with me,” she continued. If anything, I probably shy away from eye contact because it’s such a vulnerable, personal moment, especially [with] what she was talking about was abuse and domestic violence and all kinds of crazy stuff.”

However, one body language expert doesn’t necessarily agree with Bull’s view, saying Heard would likely avoid eye contact if she faked her statement. The expert also claimed that the fact that the actress apparently did not always shed tears did not imply dishonesty.

“The cameras made it difficult to tell if it was them [tears] formed in their eyes or if their eyes became red. This, like everything, is a complicated issue,” expert Judi James told the Daily Mail.

“When culprits cry tears, they often try to hide their dry eyes by poking them with their fingers, squeezing them tightly, or poking them with a tissue,” James continued. “When they do cry, self-pity often causes the tears to flow. Amber seemed cut off but is the acting or bad acting or the innocent complex reaction of someone with mixed feelings?”

Actress Amber Heard testifies about the first time her ex-husband, actor Johnny Depp, punched her on May 4, 2022 in Fairfax County Circuit Court during a libel trial against her by Depp in Fairfax, Virginia, USA.
Heard has been the subject of intense hate on Twitter and TikTok, with Johnny Depp superfans besmirching her name.

The body language expert added that Heard’s eye contact with the jury could actually be a sign of their transparency and authenticity.

“The jury can also see their eyes, and eyes are considered to be one of the most revealing parts of the body in terms of inner feelings and emotions,” James said.

“We tend to trust people more when we can see the expression in their eyes, so that gesture could indicate that she has nothing to hide,” she continued. “She is, of course, simultaneously in visual contrast to her ex-husband, who is hunched over with tinted glasses, looking down and writing or just communicating with his team.”

Depp severed his finger that same night in 2015.
Depp will be seen in court this week. The actor’s legal team will question Heard when the trial resumes on May 16.

Meanwhile, Depp and Heard’s reps shot at each other in statements released on Friday.

“As Mr. Depp’s attorney correctly predicted in her opening statements last month, Ms. Heard did indeed deliver ‘the performance of her life,’ in her direct investigation,” a Depp spokesman said. “Its truth – the truth – is the same no matter what setting it is presented in.”

Meanwhile, Heard’s rep responded directly, stating, “As per the statement just released, Mr. Depp’s defamation lawsuit is falling apart so quickly that his attorneys are going from prosecutor to prosecutor.”

“They boast that Mr. Depp’s story hasn’t changed,” they continued scathingly. “If so, given he’s resoundingly lost the domestic violence restraining order and defamation case in the UK, perhaps he should consider a new strategy rather than the recycled approach of attacking the victim and refusing to take responsibility for his own.” behavior.”

Depp and Heard began dating in 2012 and married in February 2015. They are pictured together this year.

Depp is suing Heard for defamation over a 2018 Washington Post op-ed the Aquaman star wrote in which she said she was a victim of sexual assault.

She didn’t specifically name Depp in the article, but it was written after Heard filed for a restraining order against her ex-husband in 2016 over allegations of abuse.

Depp is seeking $50 million in damages. Heard has filed a $100 million counterclaim.

Depp and Heard began dating in 2012 and married in February 2015. They split in 2017.

The trial is currently on hold until May 16, when Heard will be cross-examined by Depp’s team.
