Psychiatrist David Spiegel Talks About Johnny Depp’s Win Against Amber Heard
Meanwhile, Dr. David Spiegel, a psychiatrist who testified for Amber Heard at her defamation trial, has penned about the “horrific backlash” he experienced after stepping into the witness box. To recall, he had testified that Johnny Depp has exhibited behaviors that are “consistent” with a person who is a “perpetrator of intimate partner violence.”
Dr. David Spiegel also underscored in cross-examination that he had not met Johnny Depp. However, as claimed, he had reviewed court documents and depositions to reach his conclusions.
Devoted supporters of Johnny Depp were quick to lambast Dr. David Spiegel. In an op-ed, titled “I Testified in the Heard vs. Depp Trial. The Backlash Has Been Horrific,” published in Newsweek, the psychiatrist recounted his experience after the Fantastic Beast actor’s fans expressed their anger at him.
Dr. David Spiegel stated Amber Heard has not said anything about the backlash. However, he also noted that the ex-wife of Johnny Depp is the “most vulnerable person” in the aftermath.
As for Johnny Depp, the psychiatrist stated he would have liked to have seen him “get ahead of this and to have said [to his supporters], ‘Listen, I understand you are upset, but there are ways to express how to be upset.” Dr. David Spiegel, who also said the Mortdecai star could have tempered fan behavior and “redirected their emotions,” added:
“The fact that he hasn’t probably says potential volumes about him.”
Johnny Depp has yet to respond to Dr. David Spiegel’s op-ed.
