Amber Heard is responding after ex-husband Johnny Depp shared a message to his fans on TikTok about "moving forward" after the verdict in his defamation trial against her.

On Tuesday - just under a week since the jury sided mostly with Depp and the court awarded him $10.35 million in damages and Heard $2 million after a six-week trial - Depp, 58, joined TikTok and thanked his "loyal" fans.

His first upload on the social media site was a montage of his recent music touring with Jeff Beck, with the caption, "To all of my most treasured, loyal and unwavering supporters. We've been everywhere together, we have seen everything together. We have walked the same road together. We did the right thing together, all because you cared."

"And now, we will all move forward together," he continued. "You are, as always, my employers and once again I am whittled down to no way to say thank you, other than just by saying thank you. So, thank you. My love & respect, JD." Depp has so far gained 5.7 million TikTok followers.

A spokesperson for Heard, 36, responded to Depp's message in a statement, saying, "As Johnny Depp says he's 'moving forward,' women's rights are moving backward. The verdict's message to victims of domestic violence is ... be afraid to stand up and speak out."
