The explosive interview with Amber Heard, in which she discussed the "unfair" verdict in a defamation trial against her ex, Johnny Depp, has left Twitter users furious.
Many claimed that the three-part teasers from the Today show were "painful to watch," adding that people have" heard enough of her sickening lies."
In the prerecorded interview, Amber Heard said she will "stand by every word of her testimony until the day she dies."
The interview came just over two weeks after the Virginia court ruled in favor of Johnny Depp. He won on all the counts on defamation, while Amber won on one.
The 36-year-old called her ex-husband a "liar" and repeated that he beat her during the marriage. Speaking to Savannah Guthrie, the Aquaman star criticized Depp's attorneys, the jurors, and social media.
Twitter users accused Heard of "acting," as one person wrote they were "sick to their stomach" to listen to her "bull s**t."
Some of the posters wrote they have "heard enough of her sickening lies," while others went as far as claiming that Heard has "sunk to a new low."
There were those who did not like that NBC gave her airtime, adding that the media should "Stop covering this toxic slurry relationship."
Amber was ordered to pay Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. The second payment was reduced to $350,000 to suit Virginia's laws.
Heard was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages. While Depp sued for $50 million, Amber's counterclaim was $100 million.
Guthrie asked Heard point-blank: "He said he never hit you. Is that a lie?"
Amber replied, "Yes, it is."
Speaking of Depp's lawyers, Heard said that Camille Vasquez and Benjamin Chew tried to "distract the jury from the real issues" during the trial. She admitted they did a better job than her legal team.
Amber also said that the trial called into question the First Amendment right to free speech, arguing that she had "spoken her truth and spoken it to power" and ended up "paying the price" for that.
When the host asked her about the tapes where Amber admitted to violence, the Aquaman actress said she only ever "responded to [physical violence]" but that she "never instigated it."
Additionally, Amber regrets many things she said to her ex, saying that she only acted as a "person in extreme psychological distress" who felt that their "life was at risk."
Amber added that the tapes were edited and continued saying:
"What you would hear in these clips [was] not evidence of what was happening, it was evidence of negotiation, of how to talk about that with your abuser."
"When your life is at risk, not only will you take the blame for things that you shouldn't take the blame for, but when you are in an abusive dynamic - psychologically, emotionally, and physically - you don't have the resources or the luxury of saying, 'Hey this is black and white.' Because it is anything but when you are living in it."
Amber said that she behaved in "horrible - almost unrecognizable to herself - ways," telling Guthrie that she "was pushed to the extent where she didn't know the difference between right and wrong."
Heard confessed that her marriage to Depp was "ugly" and "beautiful."
"It was ugly. And it could be very beautiful. It was very, very toxic. We made a lot of mistakes. But I've always told the truth."
Heard told the host that the jury's decision was influenced by "unfair social media representation" and her ex-husband calling on "paid employees and randos" to testify on his behalf.
She does not blame the jurors:
"I don't blame them, I don't blame them, I actually understand, he's a beloved character, and people feel that they know him. He's a fantastic actor."
Still, Heard is baffled by their decision, adding:
"How could [the jury] make a judgment, how could they not come to that conclusion [that I couldn't be believed]?"
Describing the trial, she said she "took the stand and saw just a courtroom packed full of Captain Jack Sparrow fans who were vocal and energized."
"This was the most humiliating and horrible thing I've ever been through. I have never felt more removed from my own humanity. I felt less than human."
Due to her comments, many online users agreed that "she's her own worst enemy."
Amber must have known that the public backlash will be enormous, as she said in an interview that she isn't taking any negative public opinions about her "personally," insisting that she "doesn't care what anyone thinks about her."
The full interview will air on NBC's Dateline on Friday at 8 PM. We are confident that Twitter users will have more to say once the whole interview airs.
