One of the jurors from the explosive Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial broke their silence on Thursday to slam Heard’s claims the jury was mesmerized by her famous ex and that the verdict was unfair, insisting that they followed the evidence and were ‘uncomfortable’ with her emotional outbursts.
The male juror spoke anonymously to Good Morning America to say that he and the other jurors were ‘uncomfortable’ with how Heard stared at them throughout the trial and that they struggled to believe her when she went from ‘crying’ to being ‘ice cold’.
He denied her claim that it was a trial by social media, revealing that three of the jurors do not have Facebook or Twitter.
‘The crying, the facial expressions, the staring at the jury…all of us were very uncomfortable,’ the man, one of five on the jury, said.
Heard has repeatedly suggested that Depp only won the trial because he is more famous and likable than she is.
However, the juror on Thursday said they reached their verdict based on the evidence in the case.
‘ A lot of her story did not add up. the maturity of the jury felt that she was the raider. The weeping, the facial expressions that she had, the gaping at the jury. All of us were veritably uncomfortable. she’d answer one question and she’d be crying and two seconds latterly she’d turn into an ice-cold wave.
‘Some of us used the expression “crocodile tears”, he said.
