She was ordered to pay $15 million in damages, including $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages.

"Hey @realamberheard you should really discourage your supporters from self-harm as they have now started #CutForAmber because of YOUR actions. Take responsibility for something for once in your life as your lies have only led to the destruction of others," one wrote.

"#IStandWithAmberHeard where is your caring queen now?? You have fans harming themselves and putting pics along with #CutForAmber yet all I see is Johnny Depp fans trying to help! She’s been tagged and tagged for her to say something. SHE CARES ABOUT NO’ONE but herself!! Wake up!" a comment read.

"Y'all realize doing this #cutforamber trend is proving our point that Amber is a sociopath, she doesn't care about her supporters, or she would've said something to stop this madness. You're feeding her big-a*s ego," another offered.
