'People want to put my baby in the microwave!' Amber Heard sobs on the stand

'People want to put my baby in the microwave and they tell me that. Johnny threatened, promised me that if I ever left him he'd make me think of him every single day I lived,' she said

Heard has a one-year-old daughter, Oonagh Paige Heard, who she welcomed via surrogate. Heard has not publicly revealed who the father is.

Heard was asked how Depp's statements and threats have continued to manifest today.

'In the harassment the humiliation, the campaign against me that's echoed every single day on social media nad now in cameras in this room. Every single day I live this trauma.

'My hands shake, I wake up screaming…my friends have to live with a set of unspoken rules about how not to scare me, how to not touch me, not surprise me. Intimate partners have rules about how they can touch me.


'I have rules about medical professionals….gynecologists I see - for me not to have a panic attack or triggering event, where I relive the trauma, even if I'm training for a movie, Aquaman 2. A trigger happens and I have a meltdown, I have to deal with that because of the damage I have.'

Heard said she is 'high functioning' because she has 'found a solution to the pain,' which Heard said is charitable work.

'I woke up every day with panic attacks until I realized I could do something about it. I'm not a saint, I'm not trying to present myself as one but I selfishly found relief in using what I live through to give a voice to people who don't have a voice.

'I would not wish this situation on my worst enemy. As I stand here today I can't have a career, I can't have people associate with me and I can't do charity work.'

Heard said she has received 'hundreds' of death threats regularly and 'thousands' since the trial began.

'People mocking my testimony about being assaulted. Making fun of…it's been agonizing, painful and was humiliating thing I've ever had to go through. I hope no one has to go through something like this.

'I just want Johnny to leave me alone. I've said that for years now and I thought he would.'

'Johnny has taken enough of my voice. I have the right to tell my story, my voice and my name. He took it long enough. I have a right as an American to talk about what happened to me, to own my story and my truth. I have that right. I hope to get my voice back and I've said that from day one.'
