Amber Heard says she stands by every word she said during her 6-week trial with Johnny Depp – words she calls “truth to power”.
A new part of his “Today” interview with Savannah Guthrie fell Tuesday. Here we see Amber doubling down on her defense yet again – namely, asserting that everything she testified to actually happened.
She also talks about social media — supporting the reproaches of his lawyers than the jury must have seen – and even addresses the sea of Depp fans she faced.
When SG asks her what she thinks of people who might be disgusted by the two, Amber says she understands, but what those people might not understand is that this case was actually about constitutional rights.
Savannah pushes back, saying the First Amendment doesn’t protect lies that amount to defamation … which Amber totally agrees with, insisting she didn’t say any. AH says she did the opposite…say “truth to power”, as she says, for which she says she paid the price.
On the question of whether she was “performing,” Amber rhetorically asks how she could stand up to one of the greatest of this generation… implying that JD was the one putting on a show.
There’s more… including Savannah throwing Amber’s own recorded words – in which she admits to punching Johnny and starting fights – right in her face. But, Amber tells her they were out of context and didn’t paint the full picture.
