Amber Heard accused of ‘buying fans’ after video showed her receiving flowers from supporters

A video showing Amber Heard being presented with flowers by fans outside the courthouse where she and Johnny Depp are fighting over a defamation case is sparking debate on social media.

After six weeks of testimony from the legal teams of Depp and Heard, both sides presented closing arguments on Friday and jury deliberations began. The jury must now reach a verdict on whether Heard’s domestic violence allegations, which stem from her 2018 Washington Post op-ed, were defamatory of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star.

On the final day of the trial, Heard was seen stopping to receive a gift from a supporter waiting outside the courthouse in Fairfax, Va., before the actress left with her team.

In the clip shared by Joseph Morris on YouTube, Heard’s car made a slow turn and one of the passengers in the back appeared to reach out to take a bouquet of flowers from one of the fans. actress. Then the vehicle came to a complete stop and the driver opened his window to reveal Heard in the front passenger seat.

The flowers were given to Heard, who smiled and put a hand to his heart as he thanked the supporter. His car left shortly after.

Another angle of the moment, captured from across the street, showed the person who gave Heard the flowers was part of a group holding signs saying, “I’m with Amber.”

The video received a mixed reaction, with some, including Morris, alleging that the fan interaction was “organized”.

“It’s really bad, the ‘Aquaman’ starlet was caught buying fans,” Morris said. “Look, she stops at the exact spot where the flower is handed to her. It’s so organized.”

“She definitely paid for that PR stunt. It’s so obvious and wrong because she literally has no fans outside of the courtroom,” he claimed, adding that he believes it was orchestrated by Heard’s PR representative, David Shane, “to make it look like she has supporters”. .”

“Just when I thought I’d seen it all!! It looks so staged and grumpy like all of his testimonials!!” a Twitter user commented on the video.
