The ongoing defamation trial between actor Johnny Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard is continuing to shock the world, prompting social media sleuths to come up with their own takes.
Johnny Depp is suing Amber Heard for defamation due to an op-ed she published in the Washington Post in 2018. Heard is countersuing Depp.
The case has seen twists and turns in every direction, but the latest theory from social media users claims Heard subtly posed for a photo opportunity by holding a tissue against her nose.

Amber Heard tissue video goes viral
In the fourth week of the defamation trial against ex-husband Johnny Depp, actress Amber Heard took to the witness stand.
The Aquaman star has alleged she was the victim of domestic abuse during her marriage to Johnny Depp, and also claimed that the actor had an alcohol and drug problem that caused him to “lose control“.
As reported by The Independent, Depp has denied having an alcohol problem but has admitted to having a problem with prescription pills. Depp has already provided evidence and claimed he was the victim of domestic abuse.
During her testimony, Heard was seen blowing her nose on camera in a clip that has since gone viral on social media.

Twitter convinced Amber Heard is ‘posing’ with tissue

“Did Amber just pose for a sad photo with that tissue?” one person questioned.
“Amber Heard looks like she posed for the camera with a tissue,” another tweeted.
“I had to go back to find it online and make sure my eyes spotted it correctly & my mind wasn’t playing tricks on me,” somebody else wrote, referencing the viral clip.
It is unclear if the press were taking pictures of Amber at this time.
