“In the harassment and humiliation the campaign against me that echoed every single day on social media and now in front of cameras in this room. Every single day I have to relive the trauma, my handshakes, I wake up screaming, and I have to live with the trauma and damage done to me. My friends have to live with a set of unspoken rules about how not to scare me,” Amber Heard added.
Heard also went on to reveal how this case with Johnny Depp has impacted her career, especially the production of her upcoming film Aquaman sequel. She said, “I live my life with these sets of rules that I have to follow, my friends have to follow for me not to have a panic attack, or a triggering event or I relive the trauma, even if I am training to do my movie for instance if I’m training for Aquaman, a combat scene and a trigger happens, I have a meltdown and have to deal with that, the crew at work would have to deal with that, because of the damage I walk around with every single day, from what I have lived through, from what I have survived.”
