Strong and conflicting responses were received from the online community as the documentary Depp vs. Heard made its way onto the Netflix platform. Discussions on social media platforms have erupted as viewers express their various points of view on the provocative insights provided by the show. The following tweet was posted by a social media user who said, “This demonstrates the frightening extent of Depp’s propaganda which made a farce of the trial to secure his “win”: No, that DV and SA trial was not “cinematic.” Additionally, the documentary “La Fabrique du Mensonge: Affaire Johnny Depp/Amber Heard” is far superior. “Depp V. Heard” and “IStand With Amber Heard”
Another user said, “You have to believe that all of Amber’s evidence was a part of a multi-year abuse hoax involving several people and that it left no trace evidence at all if you want to believe in the #DeppVHeard judgment.
