• Camille Vasquez said it was disappointing for Amber Heard to say they chose to do a victory lap for setting back women
  • Johnny Depp's lawyer said they only tackled what happened in the case, so the verdict should speak for itself
  • Vasquez also argued the verdict encouraged victims to come forward because domestic violence has no gender

Camille Vasquez responded to Amber Heard, who seemingly shaded her team after their big win.

Johnny Depp's lawyers Vasquez and Ben Chew appeared on "Good Morning America" Wednesday and discussed the aftermath of Depp's court case against his ex-wife, Heard. Host George Stephanopoulos mentioned Heard's statement about them, "It is as unseemly as it is unprofessional that Johnny Depp's legal team has chosen to do a victory lap for setting back decades of how women can be treated in the courtroom. What's next? A movie deal and merchandising?"

"I think it's disappointing," Vasquez said when the host asked them to respond. "We're only speaking about what happened in this case, right? And the facts, in this case, were overwhelmingly positive for Johnny, and the verdict speaks for itself."

When Stephanopoulos asked for the broader criticisms not just from Heard's team but from victim advocates arguing that the verdict may have chilling effects on the domestic abuse victims and a blow to the MeToo movement.

"We encourage any victim to come forward. Domestic violence doesn't have a gender," Vasquez said.

The host questioned if they didn't see the verdict as a setback to the MeToo Movement in any way. "We do not," Vasquez directly responded.

"We believe that the verdict speaks for itself, the facts are what they were, and the jury made a unanimous decision based on those facts," she added.

Recounting the time she cross-examined Heard, Vasquez said they focused on using Heard's words against her. So, they raised questions tied to something the "Aquaman" star previously said.

When asked about being a social media superstar, Vasquez said it was "surreal" and "overwhelming" while smiling.

"If I can be an inspiration to young women that want to go to law school and study and work hard, then it was all worth it," said Vasquez, who got promoted as a partner at Brown Rudnick law firm after Depp's trial victory.
