One of the jurors who took part in the trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, on condition of anonymity, agreed to comment on the sensational trial. The man spoke out on the most resonant topics that worried the public and became the subject of discussion on the web. For example, he shared his opinion about Amber Heard's emotions, which seemed to many too feigned.
A lot of her story doesn't add up. Most jurors believed she was the aggressor. Her crying, the expression on her face, the looks at the jury—it was very embarrassing for all of us. She answered one question and cried, and after two seconds she turned icy. Some of us called it "crocodile tears",
— said the juror.
The participant of the sessions also noted that Johnny Depp aroused more confidence in the jury.
Many jurors eventually found what he was saying to be more plausible. It just seemed a little more realistic in terms of how he answered the questions. His emotional state was very stable all the time,
— the juror admitted.
As you know, the trial was vigorously discussed in social networks, where many sided with Johnny Depp. Heard, on the contrary, was criticized and harassed — Depp's fans even launched several petitions demanding to deprive the actress of roles. The juror said that he and his colleagues did not rely on the opinion of social networks.
We followed the evidence. I and at least two other members of the board do not use Twitter* or Facebook**. Others who had them decided not to discuss social networks,
— said the man.
The juror also commented on one of the most striking episodes of the trial, when it turned out that Amber still did not donate the $ 7 million received after the divorce to charity, as promised.
She went on this talk show in the UK. There is a video where she sits there and tells the presenter that she gave all this money. And the expressions she used were "I gave them away", "I donated them", "there is no money",
— the juror noted.
In the end, he summed up his impressions of the process between Depp and Heard.
What I think is true is that they both behaved offensively towards each other. I don't think that makes any of them right or wrong. But there wasn't enough evidence to really back up what Amber was saying,
— the juror concluded.
