The jury in the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard case has reached a verdict after six weeks of evidence, testimony and debate. Depp was declared the winner on almost every count. Heard’s counterclaim was unsuccessful, but not entirely.
Depp was awarded $15 million in damages after a jury determined that Amber Heard had defamed him. Heard was paid $2 million for defamation charges.
As soon as the decision was announced, the internet exploded. The high-profile case received widespread attention, with millions of people watching every second of the trial. It is undoubtedly one of the most closely followed public cases in recent history. It was difficult to remain unaware of the trial due to social media.

As the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard case comes to a conclusion, Twitter is overflowing with memes
Johnny Depp had a good legal team with him. In fact, Camille Vasquez rose to prominence as a result of her significant achievements in the courts. The internet adored him for undoubtedly helping Depp triumph.
A fan, on the other hand, seems to believe that there is another famous lawyer alongside the Pirates of the Caribbean star.
Saul Goodman from the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul is one of the most popular lawyers on television, and other Twitter users agree. His achievements include catching various criminals using unconventional and impressive tactics. Apparently they involve going back to the real world and helping Johnny Depp.

Despite her popularity as an actress, $15 million is a huge sum for everyone, including Amber Heard.
Many saw parallels between Depp’s rise to fame as Jack Sparrow and Sparrow’s habit of avoiding capture. The legendary description of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl has even been repeated by some.
There are many pop culture references for occasions like this, and the internet did not disappoint. Some people were surprised by Depp’s success.

The memes that emerged in the courtroom have been resurrected, with amusing results.
I think the victory will be celebrated by everyone.
In one Twitter user’s view, there are only a few words that can adequately describe the experiment.
Today was the day Miss Heard ALMOST caught Captain Jack Sparrow.

For the time being, memes will dominate the internet. The trial is officially over now that the verdict has been given, but Twitter never sleeps. For the next few weeks, Johnny and Amber will definitely be reminded of the trial every time they go to social media.
