Sunrise hosts Natalie Barr and David ‘Kochie’ Koch have come under fire online following a ‘weird’ report about Amber Heard’s upcoming Today interview.
Sunrise hosts David ‘Kochie’ Koch and Natalie Barr have come under fire for an interview with American commentator and Amber Heard critic Cooper Lawrence.
During the Sunrise interview, the radio personality took several hits at the Aquaman staraccusing him of trying to pursue a ‘toxic relationship’ with her ex-husband Johnny Deppalthough Heard filed for divorce against Depp in 2016.
Asked about the images of Heard’s next interviewwhich sees the 36-year-old admitting she has ‘so many regrets’ about her marriage to Depp while standing by her abuse allegations, Lawrence accused her of ‘lying again’.
“I think she’s part of the ‘you gotta listen to me’ tour,” Lawrence thought of Heard’s comments as she sat down with Todayis Savannah Guthrie.
“Still, she has these awkward moments that she had during the trial where you’re kind of like, ‘Wait, are you lying again? It’s like she can’t figure out her own story that she memorized for this interview, and she’s not even under oath.
Lawrence, who holds a doctorate in psychology, according to his sitewent on to directly reference Heard’s comment that Depp was able to win over the jury due to his acting prowess, remarking that “he was the man who convinced the world he had scissors for fingers”.
“I mean, the thing is, we know Johnny Depp doesn’t have fingers that are scissors, nor do we think he was once a real pirate. This is all really weird and really weird and I ‘trying to figure out what his intention was here,’ she said to laughter from the hosts.
Elsewhere, Barr asked if Heard could be sued for defamation again, given that the abuse allegations from the lawsuit have been publicly repeated.
Depp was awarded $14.4 million (AUD) in damages after the jury ruled that Heard defamed him referring to herself as a “public figure representing domestic violence” in an op-ed for The Washington Post in 2018.
Heard did not name Depp in the article, but he sued her for implying he was a domestic abuser.
Heard later countersuit claiming that Depp’s attorney, Adam Waldman, defamed her, saying her abuse allegations were a ‘hoax’. The jury awarded him $2 million.
This Morning Lawrence boldly claimed that Heard has been ‘pushing the bear’ since her divorce from Depp, because she ‘still wants him in her life’.
“Remember they divorced in 2017 things were over she said I want him to move on, I want to move on, but then she wrote this article and she swipes the bear since because she still wants him in her life even if it’s in a negative way… They have a toxic relationship and she clearly wants to continue.
She went on to say that she expected Heard to “be honest” in the interview.
“I was kind of looking for her to be more sympathetic and more honest here and to say all the things that we were hoping she would say throughout what she’s doing for about two seconds but then she comes back as a whole, ‘Johnny is a mugger, he’s a liar, etc’…it’s weird.
Agreeing that “it’s weird,” Kochie wondered aloud if Depp would sue again “just to shut her up.”
Slamming the vicious segment, author and feminist voice Clementine Ford tweeted: “Why @sunriseon7 so invested in moving people to continually pile on a woman who has already had 12 out of 14 domestic abuse allegations against her accepted by a UK court?
“Why is it so important to them that their viewers are fed the wicked woman fiction?”
Ford refers to Depp’s 2020 lawsuit against The sun because of an article that called him a “woman beater”. Depp lost his libel actionthe judge having concluded that the assertions of the article were “substantially true”.
“He promised ‘global humiliation’ to the woman whom he also freely referred to as ‘cum guzzler’, ‘w**e’, ‘sl*t’ and ‘fat a**’, and who he described as wanting to ‘f**k the burnt corpse’ off. But yeah, she’s the one who desperately needs his attention,” Ford said of Depp’s horrific texts about his ex played in court.
She concluded: “Amber Heard has been abused…she is now repeatedly abused by a bawling public who loves being given an excuse to proudly and openly skin a woman in real time.”
