Amber Heard spoke out about losing in court to Johnny Depp in his defamation lawsuit. Heard blamed the social-media frenzy that surrounded the case and said she understood why the jury sided with Depp. “I don’t blame them,” Heard said in a preview for the interview with Savannah Guthrie. “I actually understand. He’s a beloved character and people feel they know him. He’s a fantastic actor.” She said that social media portrayed her unfairly. “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.”
