The Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard defamation trial can be watched by everyone online and the fans have flooded social media with messages taking sides and declaring who they believe is saying the truth and who is the one telling the lies.

Not many celebs have chimed in to comment on this legal battle, and those who have talked have received a bit of backlash (unless they are supporting the Pirates of The Caribbean star).  The last one to receive the fans' anger was Drew Barrymore who made comments about the trial.

Some labeled the comment as a joke, while others said that she should try minding her own business. What it is true, is that Drew Barrymore is apologizing for making light of the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial.

While talking on her show with Anthony Anderson about what was happening in the world, Barrymore said that the trial involving Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has become a "seven-layer dip of insanity" because it is being live-streamed.

"It's so fascinating. 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. I understand all the feelings, but they are actually offering up this information," she said.

Fans did not like her comments at all and wrote on social media things like losing the respect they had for her. "How would she feel if people laughed at her childhood trauma." Another person said, "I love you, but what is this? ... Abuse is not funny," said one Twitter user.

Days after this, Drew took to her social media platform and shared to her more than 15 million fans and followers a video apologizing for offending the fans and for not taking the issue seriously.

"It has come to my attention that I have offended people by 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," she said.

"I can be a more thoughtful and better person moving forward because all I want to do is be a good person," continued Barrymore. "I very much appreciate the depth of this and I will grow and change from it. And I thank everyone for helping me grow along the way and teaching me. Thank you."
