Drew Barrymore apologized for “making light” of the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard trial, taking to social media for her mea culpa. “The Drew Barrymore Show” host’s initial remarks about the trial during her show created a swift backlash from fans. According to Variety, Barrymore joked that Depp’s $50 million lawsuit against Heard was “like one layer of crazy, it’s a seven-layer dip of insanity. 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.” The former “Santa Clarita Diet” star added, “They are actually offering up this information that nobody had to know. This is crazy!”
After fans reacted to her comments, Barrymore answered in an Instagram video: “It has come to my attention that I have offended people with making light of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, and for that, 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.”
The iconic actor-turned-talk show host became a beloved cultural icon after starring in “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” as a little girl. Barrymore explained that she wanted to “be a good person” and said, “I can be a more thoughtful and better person moving forward … I very much appreciate the depth of this and I will grow and change from it.” And that’s why fans have loved Barrymore for so long!
