Heard told Guthrie she understood.

“I don’t blame them. I kind of understand,” she said.

“He’s a beloved character and people feel like they know him. He’s a fantastic actor.”

Heard said she doesn’t care “what people think of me or what judgment you want to make about what happened in the privacy of my own home, in my marriage, behind closed doors.”

“I don’t assume the average person should know those things,” she said.

She said she didn’t make the decision personally.

“But even someone who knows for sure that I deserve all this hate and vitriol, even if you think I’m lying, you still couldn’t look me in the eye and tell me you think there’s fair representation on social media” , she said.

“You can’t tell me you think this was fair.”

A spokesperson for Heard said Depp’s legal team “covered the media with numerous statements and televised interviews for days after the verdict”.

“Depp himself did the same on social media,” they said in a statement to CNN.

“Mrs. Heard just intended to respond to what they did aggressively last week; she did so by expressing her thoughts and feelings, much of which she was not allowed to do on the witness stand.”

CNN has reached out to representatives for Depp for comment.

The NBC interview will air in the US Today program on Tuesday and Wednesday, as well as on date line on Friday.
