    Drew Barrymore Really Regrets Joking About The Amber Heard And Johnny Depp's Defamation Trial And Said She "Will Grow And Change From It"

    "All I want to do is be a good person."

    The Amber Heard-Johnny Depp defamation trial has been going on for several weeks now, and it's been a hot topic online and in general.

    On a recent episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, the host and actor Anthony Anderson talked about the trial in a lighthearted fashion. Drew referred to it as a "seven-layer dip of insanity."

    "It's so fascinating," she said on the show. "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."

    Needless to say, people weren't thrilled about the segment — and Drew has responded to criticism in a video posted to Instagram.

    "It has come to my attention that I have offended people with making light of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard," she said.

    "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."
