Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s trials started as a legal battle and as is common with high-profile cases it evolved into a war of words. As the former partners exchanged accusations and counter-accusations of abuse, a heated debate in the court of public opinion also began.

The legal battle between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp ran for a very long time, from 2016 up until 2022. This included restraining orders, a charge of libel, divorce proceedings, appeals and many more. Over the course of a high-profile case of this manner, personal information about the couple became knowledge. One such thing was the term AmberTurd. 

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp started to have issues in 2016 and a day after the couple had celebrated her birthday in 2016, Heard had allegedly, for lac of a better word – defecated, in Depp’s bed. The faeces was discovered by the cleaner and led to Depp referring to her as AmberTurd and Amber in the Dumps in text messages he had sent to friends. This only came to light because Depp had to submit to and read in court, messages he had sent to friends about the problems the couple were having. 

Did This Have An Impact On Amber Heard’s Public Image?

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp’s public images both suffered as a result of the court cases. Depp had lost movie deals and Heard had been viciously attacked on social media and across many platforms. In the case of AmberTurd, the couple had brushed off the incident as a prank that Heard had played but this did not manage the blow that this revelation had on Heard’s career. One way this had an impact on Heard’s public image was with the changing of her name on her IMDB page. Someone had managed to change her name from Amber Heard to Amber Turd. This was fixed but the damage had been done and in true internet fashion, it would never forget. 

How Does Social Media Shape Public Opinion In Such Cases

Social Media has been an effective tool for communication and the forming of connections. It also is a great way to disseminate information and sway opinion. This obviously comes with a few problems as it has the effect of not just causing harm but also obstructing the truth from being discovered. For a case that addresses a contentious issue like domestic abuse as we saw with Amber Heard and Johnny Depp, this was bound to happen. On one end there is the element of fanaticism as the two of the people at the center of the trial are stars. Then there is the fact that gendered crimes post-me too era, especially domestic abuse and sexual assault are met with an equal measure of high emotions, like anger and scepticism. 

All of this typically plays out on social media, as it is the only avenue through which many people can speak on the same thing at the same time. Social media holds a very pivotal postion in the world today and while it is just a tool it does play a role in the way public opinion is formed. It is worse in such sensitive situations that involve two high-profile people who each have a large number of fans. The one upside to this is that public opinion does not determine how justice is served.
