Actress Amber Heard was accused of faking her tears in court on Wednesday the 4th of May when she took to the witness stand.
It was Amber's first time on the witness stand during Johnny's defamation lawsuit against her. She testified that ex-husband Johnny Depp abused her during the couple's 15-month-long marriage.
She accused him of physical abuse, including slapping her and ripping her clothes off to perform a "cavity search" looking for drugs.
Many viewers were skeptical of her testimony and the "fake crying" that allegedly did not lead to any tears.
Amber described the marriage between her and Johnny as magical, up to the point when it became violent. In 2018 she wrote an op-ed claiming to be a victim of domestic abuse, an action that led to severe damage to Johnny's career and image.
Johnny sued Amber for $50 million for defaming him, and Amber answered with a counterclaim of $100 million, accusing Johhny of a smear campaign against her aimed at damaging her reputation.
Amber went on to tell the court that Johnny first became violent after she commented on a tattoo he had referring to former flame Winona Ryder.
"He slapped me across the face," she claimed. "I didn't know what was going on. I just stared at him."
Johnny has earlier denied ever hitting his ex-wife, and evidence has come to the surface showing that she was instead the abusive spouse.
Amber explained that she stayed with Johnny because she believed in his excuses. However, according to the actress, Johnny continued to hit her on other occasions. On May 13, he ripped her clothes off and allegedly forced his fingers "inside" her.
"He proceeds to do a cavity search," she told the court. "He's looking for his drugs, his cocaine."
Amber spoke calmly at times, and occasionally she was crying. However, the majority of the audience did not show sympathy for her, and they had a hard time believing her story.
YouTuber Andy Signore tweeted:
Poet Joseph Massey questioned her style of crying and wondered:
More comments were flowing in on Twitter.
If the audience believed Amber's accusations, it would have surely sounded different because no one would think these kinds of actions between spouses are acceptable. However, the fact that Amber earlier has been caught lying makes her story less credible to the viewers.
Many stand on Johnny's side during the trial and show resentment against Amber for the damage she did to their idol. They consider her an embarrassment to actual victims of domestic abuse.
