Trump supporters compared Cassidy Hutchinson -- a top aide to former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows -- to actress Amber Heard after her testimony to the January 6 Select Committee on Tuesday, June 28.

Hutchinson made a series of unverified claims about how former President Donald J Trump and the White House responded to the Capitol Hill riots when members of congress were in the process of certifying the 2020 presidential election. Hutchinson was accused of lying under oath and compared to Heard, who lost a defamation case to her ex-husband Johnny Depp following a highly publicized trial earlier this month.

Depp sued Heard for $50 million after she claimed to be a survivor of domestic abuse in an op-ed she wrote in 2018. While Heard did not mention Depp in the article, his lawyers said the implications were obvious and damaged their client's acting career. Heard's credibility was damaged following the trial's conclusion as she was mocked across social media. Now, Hutchinson has been subjected to similar attacks after her testimony on Tuesday.

Trump's critics lashed out at the comparison, with Heard's longtime pal Eve Barlow also reacting to the 'Amber Heard 2.0' trend.

"Amber Heard 2.0 is trending because MAGA freaks hate women. So many more of you should care about this and so many more of you should speak up, and the longer you stay quiet the worst it's going to get. For all women," Barlow tweeted.

"If you want a sense of the impact of the Depp/Heard trial on women more generally, "Amber Heard 2.0" is trending on Twitter, pushed by MAGA types to discredit Cassidy Hutchinson," political analyst Arieh Kovler added.

"Aww...MAGAts are angry that Trump got his ass handed to him today. Now they've started Amber Heard 2.0. Cassidy was LITERALLY in the room/area/for much of her testimony today. They cannot stand that their God Their Lord and Savior Donald John Trump may be held accountable," someone else wrote.

Trump himself did not compare Hutchinson to Heard but dismissed her claims on his social media website 'Truth Social'. "I hardly know who this person, Cassidy Hutchinson, is, other than I heard very negative things about her (a total phony and 'leaker'), and when she requested to go with certain others of the team to Florida after my having served a full term in office, I personally turned her request down," he wrote.

"Why did she want to go with us if she felt we were so terrible? I understand that she was very upset and angry that I didn't want her to go, or be a member of the team. She is bad news." The former POTUS added, "Her Fake story that I tried to grab the steering wheel of the White House Limousine in order to steer it to the Capitol Building is 'sick' and fraudulent, very much like the Unselect Committee itself—Wouldn't even have been possible to do such a ridiculous thing."
