Amber Heard V Johnny Depp: Elon Musk offers concluding thoughts
His words did not sit well with Depp's fanbase
Elon Musk has finally offered his thoughts on the Amber Heard versus Johnny Depp defamation case just days after final arguments were made.
While his name was evoked on more than one occasion, mostly pertaining to his brief relationship with Amber Heard, 36, Musk avoided the stand himself. But after concluding statements on May 28, Musk has offered his two cents through Twitter, of course.
I hope they both move on. At their best, they are each incredible.

Podcast host and MIT scientist Lex Fridman shared his own thoughts on Twitter, where he wrote: "My takeaways from Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial:
"1. Fame is one hell of a drug (for some).
"2. Psychiatrists & lawyers come in drastically varying levels of skill.
"3. Lying to millions of people is something humans are capable of.
"4. Love can be messy.
"5. Mega pint of wine."
In a surprisingly subdued Musk Tweet, the Tesla frontman wrote: "I hope they both move on. At their best, they are each incredible."
"I do hope we start thinking of people by who they are at their best not their worst," Fridman responded.
Musk has seemingly rattled Twitter, where Depp's fans have almost become cult-like in the protection of the Alice in Wonderland star.
"Excuse me? Both? No. Only Johnny. JOHNNY is incredible. Not amber," wrote one crazed fan.
Peak level clownery. Peak level. https://t.co/4yhCibrWWH

Others offered more tempered replies, with many suggesting that Musk has only now spoken out in case he was called to the stand.
"I can't believe you are pretending to be neutral in this matter now," another wrote, while another said, "Really, now, after weeks?"
