Kelly called Heard first for saying she doesn’t care what other people think of her.
“Obviously she does,” Kelly said. “She’s been out of trial over and over again. How many media attempts she’s made, how many media manipulations she’s tried… The point is, she cares. She’s just saying she doesn’t because she just lost.”
The broadcaster then ridiculed Amber Heard’s claim that social media was “unfair” to her during the trial:
She was incredible and then social media flipped on her, or social media flipped on her and then jurors found her incredible. She thinks it’s the last, and I think it’s the first.”
Then Emily Jaczynski, culture editor at The Federalist, suggested that while Johnny Depp has an army of fans online, the social media reaction to Amber Heard has not been “slanted.” Jaczynski noted that everyone watched the trial live from the courtroom and shared their opinions based on the videos.
Then Kelly brought up Heard’s comment about not blaming the jury because she understood it deep She is “a likable character and a wonderful actor”. Heard claimed that the jurors reached their conclusion after hearing testimony from Depp’s “paid employees”.
“What you’re basically saying is that other lawyers did a better job than the lawyers I work with, and Johnny did a better job than I did and that was unfair, this ruling is against me.”
Ileana Johnson, editor in chief at Free Beacon, stated that jurors would not be affected by social media as they were not allowed access to it during the trial. Megyn Kelly criticized Amber Heard’s an interview Also he said:
“Your lawyer has had the opportunity to point out all this in the cross-examination of witnesses and [they] I did, and you, Amber Heard, pointed this out when you were at the witness stand as well. The jury heard all of your defences, all of your attempts to make holes in these people’s credibility, and they dismissed them.”
She went on to comment on how odd Heard’s conception of the jury as a “powerless group” of people who couldn’t form their own opinions was.
“That doesn’t make the jury this impotent group of vulnerable people that the randeau and the salaried staff will affect. They took it all into account, and they still don’t believe you, that’s how bad your situation was.”
Although Megyn Kelly’s comments have gained traction online, Amber Heard has not responded to them.
