Savannah Guthrie Grills Amber Heard Over Johnny Depp Audio ‘Taunting’

Judge Penney Azcarate filed a writ of judgment on Friday (June 24) mirroring the earlier verdict in the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard trial.

On June 1, a Virginia jury ruled that Ms Heard defamed Mr Depp’s former husband, ending a widely watched six-week trial.

He also ruled in favor of Ms. Heard in some aspects of her countersuit against Mr. Depp. The jury awarded Mr Depp $15million in damages after finding he had proven all three allegations against Ms Heard. The amount was reduced to $10.35 million due to state law limits.

The actors were not required to be in the courtroom for the hearing, which begins at 11 a.m. ET on Friday and ends in about an hour.

Amber Heard felt “less than human” during the trial

Amber Heard told NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie that she felt “less than human” during her defamation lawsuit against ex-husband Johnny Depp.

“Every day I would walk past three, four, sometimes six blocks, blocks with people holding signs saying ‘burn the witch’, ‘death to Amber’. After three and a half weeks, I spoke up and just saw a courtroom full of Captain Jack Sparrow fans, who were vocal and energetic,” Ms Heard said.

“Can you put into words what you felt?” asked Mrs. Guthrie.

“It is the most humiliating and horrible thing I have ever experienced. I have never felt more removed from my own humanity,” Ms Heard said. “I felt less than human.”

How the Johnny Depp fandom focused on his lawyer

In the weeks since the start of the trial, Camille Vasquez has become one of the most well-known figures among the case’s followers. Depp fans have turned to her the online attention usually reserved for actors and singers.

There were celebratory tweets and Instagram fan accounts. While the trial was underway, Depp supporters were known to wait outside the courthouse, hoping to catch a glimpse of Vasquez and possibly get a hug of their own. After Vasquez cross-examined Heard, a meme reimagined the lawyer as Thor, the god of thunder portrayed by Chris Hemsworth in the Marvel movies. Vasquez’s star only rose further after a verdict was announced on June 1 largely favoring Depp.
