Heard testified last week to receiving death threats during the trial. Through tears, she recounted being “harassed, humiliated, threatened every single day.” She testified that people “want to put [her] baby in the microwave.”

While Depp has been officially replaced as Jack Sparrow in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean sequel, he is rumored to star in Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice 2, slated for release in 2025.
