The video never shows Depp becoming physically abusive with Amber Heard. It never shows him insulting her, or throwing anything at her. He’s simply been drinking, and in a bad mood.
The video was obviously heavily edited and Amber Heard is heard saying ” I said I was sorry” but it’s never shown why she was sorry. Only that it was before the video recording. ( Depp had no idea he was being filmed )
