'I don't want to': Johnny Depp whispers as Amber Heard says he won't look at her 'because he's guilty'
Viral TikTok video from the trial showed Heard saying, 'I survived, I survived that man and I'm here and I'm able to look at him'
Johnny Depp answers Amber Heard's explanation of why he hasn't looked at her once throughout the defamation trial. On Tuesday, May 17, Depp's lawyer, Camille Vasquez, began the first day of Heard's cross-examination by alleging that Depp hasn't glanced at her once. Depp warned Heard in a voice recording that she would never see his eyes again.
TikTok video went viral from the trial where Depp is heard chuckling and reacting to Heard's claims that he did not look at her at all during the trial, according to a TikTok user identified as @cbatogivename. Since becoming viral, the video has garnered over 328,000 views and 34,000 likes. Heard replies, as mentioned in the viral post, "Because he's guilty, he knows he's lying. Otherwise, why can't he look at me? I survived, I survived that man and I'm here and I'm able to look at him." "I don't want to," Depp appears to say to one of his lawyers, Ben Chew. The Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial is on its 17th day in court. On Tuesday, the actress and iO Tillett Wright, a friend of Heard, also testified. The trial in Fairfax County, Virginia is set to finish on May 27. The trial will be broadcast live on the internet.
After the video was hit on TikTok many users quickly chimed in to defend Depp. "He can't look at her because she abused him," a user said.

A user questioned Heard's claims, "I was the victim of dv. When I was in court… I couldn’t look at him. And I was the victim. She constantly watches him. Surprising if she was a victim."

"No, it's because he doesn't want to. Read his lips 30 seconds in," a user ridiculed.

Depp has sued Heard for $50 million in relation to an op-ed she penned for The Washington Post in 2018 titled "I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture's wrath. That has to change." Despite the fact that Depp was not identified in the piece, his attorneys contend that what Heard wrote was clearly about him. Depp has missed out on several film prospects since the op-ed was published. Heard is suing Depp for $100 million, claiming that the case is a "nuisance."
