Amber Heard fans showered praise on Sarah Paulson after she followed the embattled actress on Instagram following her loss to ex-husband Johnny Depp in a high-profile defamation case.
In one of the most-discussed trials in recent times, a Virginia-based jury ruled in a unanimous decision that Heard, 36, defamed Depp, 58, when she called herself a victim of domestic abuse in a 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post. She was ordered to pay $15 million in damages, including $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. The jury also awarded Heard compensatory damages of $2 million as she was defamed when Depp’s lawyer Adam Waldman called her abuse allegations a hoax.
Fans of Heard, who were outnumbered by Depp stans throughout the trial, rejoiced when they noticed ‘Run’ star Paulson followed Heard on Instagram.
“SARAH PAULSON STARTED FOLLOWING AMBER HEARD ON INSTAGRAM!” one gushed.
“Sarah Paulson followed amber on IG she’s always been so real,” another wrote.
“I’ve always loved Sarah Paulson & I’m happy to hear she’s showing support for Amber by following her on Insta,” someone else added.
“@MsSarahPaulson THANK YOU SARAH FOR SUPPORTING AMBER HEARD!!” another chimed in.
