Shortly after the jury concluded the case, Heard said in a statement that she was disappointed "beyond words".

"The disappointment I feel today is beyond words. I'm heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence, and sway of my ex-husband," Heard said in a statement shared on Twitter.


Further, she added, "I'm even more disappointed with what this verdict means for other women. It is a setback... It sets back the idea that violence against women is to be taken seriously.''
