Johnny Depp’s attorneys appeared on multiple shows on Wednesday morning to slam Amber Heard’s claims the trial was unfair.
Camille Vasquez and Benjamin Chew appeared on TODAY, Good Morning America and then on the Law and Crime network – which covered the trial without interruption.
They told how happy Johnny now was to have won and that he ‘hasn’t smiled like this in six years’ – when his problems with Heard began.
They also slammed Heard’s claim that she lost the trial because he is more powerful and popular than she is, saying it’s ‘utterly false’ that social media played a part and claiming the jury simply didn’t like her because she – unlike Johnny – ‘didn’t take accountability for anything.’
The pair then suggested that he might even waive the $8million judgement Amber was ordered to pay him. Her attorneys said she can’t afford it and yesterday revealed plans to file an appeal.
Asked whether or not they would waive the judgement, Depp’s attorneys said: ‘This was never about money for Mr. Depp. This was about restoring his reputation and he’s done that.
‘We have to be careful what we say but this was about Mr. Depp’s reputation but that was what it was about for him.’
