American actress Drew Barrymore posted a video on social media apologizing for joking about the controversial legal battle of Johnny Depp‘s defamation case against Amber Heard while discussing the proceedings on her talk show.
Drew Barrymore runs her show titled The Drew Barrymore Show on CBS. While talking about pop culture with guest Anthony Anderson last week, she said that the court case, which is being televised and live-streamed for the public, has become a “seven-layer dip of insanity.” The two stars laughed and made jokes about some of the peculiar things that came up as testimonies.

In recent weeks, there has been a lot of attention on the defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. It has caught many eyes that it’s pretty much impossible to ignore the story, and Barrymore made a few remarks on her television show about what she’d been observing while talking to her guest Anthony Anderson.
She said, “It’s so fascinating. I know that these are two people’s real lives and I know what it’s like to have your life put out in public. I understand all the feelings, but they are offering up this information.”
Drew Barrymore’s sincere apology on the defamation Trial
Things get pretty heated up as some backlash came over these remarks from some viewers feeling that the trial was inappropriate to joke about, and this feedback made its way to Barrymore. It has left her feeling remorseful for “making light” of the situation, and in the apology video she posted on Instagram, Barrymore hopes that it will serve as a teaching moment for her.
She said in that clip, “I just want to deeply apologize, and appreciate everyone who spoke out because this can be a teachable moment for me, and how I move forward, and how I conduct myself. I can be a more thoughtful and better person moving forward because all I want to do is be a good person.”
This apology seemed genuine and she’s the only major celebrity who has apologized for commenting on the recent trial. Though she commented about this defamation trail, she’s not the first to comment on the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial. Many celebrities have already spoken about it and the public is still waiting for a proper apology.
