Who Trolled Amber?

by Tortoise Media

Introducing… Who Trolled Amber?


What comes to mind when you think of Amber Heard? Liar? Survivor? Narcissist? Millions of us watched the celebrity trial of the century, Depp v Heard, in 2022. Amber Heard lost and Johnny Depp was vindicated. But what if Amber was actually the victim of an organised trolling campaign? What if the online hate against her was manufactured?


Alexi Mostrous, the reporter who brought you Sweet Bobby and Hoaxed, investigates what happened to Amber and who might have been responsible. It’s a story about how our own thoughts and opinions can be moulded without us even realising.


Who Trolled Amber is released on 27 February. The first two episodes will be available then, with further episodes released each week. To listen to the whole series on 27 February become a Tortoise member or subscribe to Tortoise+.


Who Trolled Amber is the latest series in Tortoise Investigates, the home of Tortoise's award-winning investigative series.
