Amber Heard’s lawyer interrupted by Amber Alert during closing arguments

Amber Heard’s attorney was interrupted by an apparent Amber Alert as she made the closing argument between the actress and her ex-husband Johnny Depp during the blockbuster defamation lawsuit.

Attorney Ben Rottenborn was summarizing his client’s case on Friday morning when several cellphones began giving warnings, causing an uproar in the courtroom.

As soon as a loud siren was heard from the phone, Heard looked back at the gallery with a confused look on his face.

“There appears to be an Amber Alert,” Judge Penny Azcarte told the court. “People are getting it on their phones which hasn’t silenced them.”

It was later determined that the sound was not an Amber Alert – intended to notify people of a missing or abducted child – but rather a tornado warning for the area around Fairfax, Virginia.

Regardless, many on social media were happy with the apparent Amber Alert, with some Depp fans cracking jokes.

“How did the entire courtroom not burst? He was so right,” a pundit posted on twitter,

“The fact that ‘Amber Alert’ is closing, interrupting during Rottenborn’s closing statement is somehow poetic justice. The best director in Hollywood can’t write this s-t,” one more chime,

“#AMBERALERT on Amber Heard’s closing testimony. I can’t stop laughing. Jury, if you’re looking for a sign, this is it.” A third person tweeted,

It was the latest viral moment in the captivating court case, much of which has gone viral on social media, where pundits have been sharing TikTok, tweets and memes mocking both Depp and Heard.

In his closing arguments, Rottenborn strongly defended Heard, saying that she was true to the abuse at the hands of Depp.

Rottenborn referenced obscene texts allegedly written by Depp, one of which read: “Hopefully there’s a rotting corpse of Si-T in the F-King trunk of a Honda Civic.”

In another, she allegedly imagined having sex with Heard’s “burnt corpse” to make sure she was dead.

“Ladies and gentlemen, these words are a window into the heart and mind of America’s favorite pirate,” declared the lawyer.

He continued: “If Amber is abused even once by Mr. Depp, she wins. And we are not just talking about physical abuse,” he added. This includes “emotional abuse, psychological abuse, financial exploitation, sexual abuse”.

Meanwhile, Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez rebuked Heard in her own closing arguments, saying the actress “performed” during the six-week trial.

Vasquez claims the jury “saw without tears” spinning domestic abuse claims “detailed, exaggerated, fanciful”.

The lawyer argued that the evidence presented by Heard’s legal team “does not bear out” that the actress was abused “countless times”, including the fact that there is no medical record of her alleged injuries.

“Nothing,” said Vasquez.

Depp sued Heard (pictured Thursday) for $50 million in damages. Hurd filed a $100 million countersuit.

Depp is suing Heard for defamation over a 2018 Washington Post op-ed written by the “Aquaman” star in which she said she was the victim of sexual violence. She did not specifically name Depp in the article, but it was written after Heard filed for a restraining order in 2016 over allegations of abuse against her ex-husband.
