Amber Heard Gets Marriage Proposal From Saudi Man Who Describes Her As A ‘Blessing’

A Saudi man has asked for Amber Heard’s hand in marriage, describing the actress as a “blessing.” The unnamed man slid into Heard’s Instagram DMs and proposed to her via a voice message in which he made a rather unconvincing argument about why she should tie the knot with him. Needless to say, it’s unlikely he’ll get a response.

  1. The man seems to think he’s doing his bit for charity. In the message, he claims that Heard should accept his proposal since she has nothing left after losing her defamation trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp. “Amber since all doors are closing on you, you have no one except me to take care of you. I’ve noticed that some people hate and bully you, therefore, I decided to marry you. May Allah bless us both,” the man says in the voice note.
  2. He also tries to convince her that he’s better than Johnny Depp. The man goes on to say that Heard is a “blessing” even if no one else seems to think so at the moment and also refers to Depp as an “old man.” He says: “You are a blessing, but people don’t appreciate that. I am better than that old man.”
  3. It’s unclear if this is serious or not. While the deadpan delivery of the man in the audio clip doesn’t suggest one way or the other if he’s serious about his proposal or if he’s in some way cruelly mocking Heard, it does seem odd that the caption of the post in which the video was shared refers to a Kuwaiti business selling hand creams, perfumes, and baby shower gifts. It seems a bit like standard Instagram spam.
  4. If nothing else, Heard deserves a bit of peace now. If the man who sent this message was serious, it was likely done knowing that he wasn’t going to hear back given that marriage is likely the last thing on Heard’s mind (and especially not to a rando on Instagram). However, the best thing for Heard at the moment is to stay off of social media altogether, regardless of the fact that there are many who support her.
