The trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has been the center of attention for several weeks. Heard's emotional breakdown in court has now been linked to a new sobbing filter on Snapchat. Heard cried in court throughout her testimony, and Snapchat quickly followed suit with the sobbing filter. Snapchat company has now responded to the claim.

Snapchat has denied producing a filter for Amber Heard's dramatic outburst in court, according to TMZ. It claims that the filter had been in the works for six months before Heard’s trial. The filter is simply an augmented-reality lens that you superimpose over people's visage, turning them into a blubbering mess like a virtual Greek tragedy mask, for the digitally uninformed. Since its debut last week, the feature has racked up over 1.3 billion Snapchat impressions as users across the internet make sobbing faces over recordings.

Amber Heard’s viral testimonial

Heard broke down in tears on the witness stand last week as she spoke about how her ex-husband Johnny Depp sexually attacked her with a liquor bottle and threatened her life shortly after they married. She talked about the day she visited Depp in Australia approximately a month after their wedding in early 2015 when Depp took off her nightgown and put her on a ping-pong table after an argument. Heard also alleged that Depp shoved a bottle in her vagina. While this testimony began to flame, not many supported Heard’s story.
