Amber Heard: There was no fair presentation of this case on social media

Amber Heard spoke with Today’s Savannah Guthrie and of course the topic was trial and her emotions after all. "Of course, to my dying day I will stand by every word of my testimony”. "This was the most humiliating and horrible thing I have ever been through.

I have never felt more removed from my own humanity. I felt less than human." "I wouldn't blame the average person for looking at this and how this has been covered and not thinking that this is Hollywood brats at their worst."

“But what people don’t understand is that it is actually so much bigger than that. This is not only about our first amendment right to speak”. Guthrie said to her: “But here’s the thing, the first amendment protects free speech.

It doesn’t protect lies that amount to defamation and that was the issue in the case”.

Social Media

Amber Heard believes that social media was too critical of her and that she did not have a fair presentation.

"I don't care what one thinks about me or what judgments you want to make about what happened in the privacy of my own home, in my marriage, behind closed doors," she added. "I don't presume the average person should know those things.

And so I don't take it personally." She concluded: "But even somebody who is sure I'm deserving of all this hate and vitriol, even if you think that I'm lying, you still couldn't look me in the eye and tell me that you think on social media there's been a fair representation.

"You cannot tell me that you think that this has been fair." Heard believes that this is a step backwards and that this has violated the rights of women. "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, influence, and sway of my ex-husband," she said "I’m even more disappointed with what this verdict means for other women.

It is a setback. It sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated."
