‘I think she’s professionally ruined’: Megyn Kelly calls Amber Heard ‘unemployable’ following verdict

Amber Heard just can’t seem to catch a break these days.

First, her performance under cross-examination is universally panned. Then she loses her defamation case altogether and is forced to pay $15 million to Johnny Depp, which can’t feel good. And then there was that “whose feces were in the bed” controversy.

Now, Megyn Kelley contends that the actress is pretty much radioactive in Hollywood, and is likely to be “unemployable” for the foreseeable future.

Kelly made this prediction when speaking Wednesday to Floyd Abrams on his podcast “Speaking Freely.” After Abrams asked for Kelly’s reaction to the verdict, she made it clear that it seemed the jury just didn’t believe anything Heard had to say.

“It sounds to me like [the jury] didn’t believe anything,” Kelly said. “They didn’t believe her abuse claims, they didn’t believe anything she said, from the way I read this verdict form. But it could also just be that they caught her in so many lies that they just determined there wasn’t enough proof to support her claims and that it was more likely than not, she lied.”

“What becomes of [Heard] now,” Abrams then asked, “what do you think her future is, with the jury having come in so definitively as they did?”

“I think she’s professionally ruined for the time being,” Kelly answered, not mincing her words.

“I’m not sure whether she comes back from this, even in a town that’s very liberal and that would be much more in the knee jerk ‘I believe all women camp.’ The problem for her in Hollywood is not that a jury has said what it’s said. The problem for her in Hollywood is the nation watched this trial and they decided she was a liar and he was a truth-teller.”

“And yes, they were manipulated by the press,” Kelly added, “and yes, they saw YouTube mashups that the jury didn’t see and all of that, but they had the opportunity to decide with her in the court of public opinion if that’s how they were feeling and in watching her testimonial and so on—they didn’t.”

“So Hollywood, before it’s woke, these days, has got to be somewhat business-minded and capitalist,” Kelly continued.

“And there was already a petition with, I don’t know, between three and 4 million—maybe it’s more now—to get her booted out of the next ‘Aquaman’ sequel,” she added, in reference to a Change.org petition imaginatively titled “Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2,” which has currently acquired over 4.5 million signatures.

“They don’t want to see her,” Kelly summed up.

“She’s come to represent more than a woman who falsely accused a beloved actor. She’s come to represent all women who women and men feel have made false accusations. Now that’s unfair, but that’s where we are. And that’s why I say she’s probably unemployable.”

That’s bad news for Amber Heard—but if Megyn Kelly is right, it looks like she’s become the tear-stained face of what seems to be a long-overdue reaction to the excesses of the #MeToo movement.
