Sunrise hosts Natalie Barr and David “Kochi” Koch have been heavily criticized online following a “weird” report about Amber Heard’s upcoming Today interview.
Sunrise hosts David “Kochi” Koch and Natalie Barr were heavily criticized for an interview with American commentator and noted critic Amber Heard Cooper Lawrence.
Lawrence, who has bullied Amber Heard on The Morning Show in the past, has once again been brought in to discuss Heard’s upcoming performance in the US. Today interview, an excerpt from which was published today.
During Sunrise interview, the radio host took a few hits on Aquaman star, accusing her of trying to continue a “toxic relationship” with her ex-husband Johnny Depp, despite the fact that Hurd initiated divorce proceedings against Depp back in 2016.
Asked about a recording of Heard’s upcoming interview, in which the 36-year-old admits she “regrets” her marriage to Depp “so much” while maintaining her accusations of abuse, Lawrence accused her of “lying again.”
“I think she’s on the ‘You Need to Listen to Me’ tour,” Lawrence reflected on Heard’s comments during her meeting with TodaySavanna Guthrie.
“However, she had these awkward moments that she had during her trial where you were like, ‘Wait, are you lying again?’ It looks like she can’t properly explain her own story that she learned for this interview, and she’s not even under oath.”
Lawrence, PhD in Psychology, according to her websitewent on to directly refer to Heard’s comment that Depp had successfully convinced jurors through his acting prowess, remarking that “he’s the man who convinced the world he had scissors for fingers.”
“I mean, we know that Johnny Depp doesn’t have scissor fingers, we also don’t think he was ever a real pirate. This is all really strange and very strange, and I’m trying to understand what her intentions are here, ”she said to the laughter of the presenters.
Elsewhere, Barr asked if Heard could be sued again for defamation, given that allegations of abuse during the trial were again publicly repeated.
Depp was awarded $14.4 million in damages after a jury found Heard slandered him by calling herself a “domestic abuse public figure” in an op-ed for Washington Post in 2018.
Heard did not name Depp in the article, but he sued her for implying that he was a domestic abuser.
Hurd later filed a countersuit, alleging that Depp’s lawyer Adam Waldman defamed her by saying that her claims of abuse were a “hoax”. The jury awarded her $2 million.
Lawrence boldly stated this morning that after her divorce from Depp, Hurd is “playing a trick on the bear” because she “still wants him in her life.”
“Remember they divorced in 2017, it was all over, she said I want him to leave, I want to move on, but then she wrote this article and has been teasing the bear ever since because she still wants to. to have him in her life, even if in a negative way… They have a really toxic relationship, and she clearly wants to continue it.”
She went on to say that she expected Heard to be “honest” in the interview.
“I kind of wish she was nicer and more honest here and said all the things we hoped she said the whole time, which she said for about two seconds, but then she came back to herself completely,” Johnny is the abuser , he’s a liar, etc… that’s weird.”
Agreeing that “it’s weird,” Kochi wondered aloud if Depp would sue again “just to shut her up.”
Criticizing the vicious segment, author and feminist Clementine Ford tweeted: “Why @sunriseon7 invested so much in the removal of people to constantly lean on a woman who already has 12 of the 14 charges of domestic violence against her, which were accepted in a British court?
“Why is it so important to them that their viewers are fed fiction about a villainous woman?”
Ford is referring to Depp’s 2020 lawsuit against Sun because of an article that called him a “wife beater”. Depp lost the libel suit, and the judge found the article’s claims to be “substantially true”.
“He promised ‘universal humiliation’ to the woman, whom he also loosely referred to as ‘cum eater’, ‘slut’, ‘whore’ and ‘fat ass’, and whom he said she wanted to ‘fuck.’ **k charred dead corpse’ of. But yes, she’s the one who desperately needs his attention,” Ford said of Depp’s horrific reports about his exes in court.
She concluded by saying, “Amber Heard has experienced abuse … now she’s repeatedly abused by a screaming public who just love it when they have a reason to proudly and openly flay a woman in real time.”
