In one of his stand-up shows, the comedian turned on the Aquaman star and called her “the culprit.”
There is no doubt that the most remarkable moment of Oscars 2022 – which happened on May 27 – was the slap in the face of Will Smith in Chris Rockafter the comedian made a “kidding” with the medical condition of Jada Pinkett-Smith. The disagreement generated an absurd repercussion for Will, who ended up banned from the Academy for 10 years and his next projects have been blocked or canceled. Even with all the controversy, Chris continues to do stand-up shows and make fun of famous people – now the targets are Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
During a performance in London, he poked fun at the legal dispute that the ex-couple are starring and which are being aired publicly. “What is his problem? She pooped in her bed [Johnny Depp]! She’s fine, but she doesn’t shit well. She shit in her bed,” Chris shot (via daily mail). “Once you shit in someone’s bed, you’re guilty of everything…What the fuck is going on?” Wow. And they had a relationship after that. That must be an amazing mouth**…”
For those unfamiliar with the feud, Johnny and Amber were married for two years and separated in 2016. After the split, the star of Aquaman revealed a series of photos of her face with injuries caused by her ex-husband and even got a restraining order for domestic violence. At the time, she backed out of suing him after signing a divorce agreement that included the actor paying $7 million.
However, it didn’t take long for Johnny to take legal action against Amber over an article she published in the The Washington Post, in December 2018, containing details of the assaults suffered by her. Although Amber didn’t mention Johnny’s name, he thinks the text hurt not only his reputation, but also his job.

Johnny further explained that while Disney maintained the character’s image in its parks and merchandising products, the studio would have feared the consequences of the lawsuit and preferred to fire him.
The same thing happened with the franchise. fantastic beasts, from Warner Bros., in which Johnny played the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. The actor last appeared on The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) and was replaced by Mads Mikkelsen in Dumbledore’s secrets (2022)the third part of the saga derived from Harry Potter.
Amber has already admitted in court that she had her scenes in Aquaman 2 reduced and even cut due to the tumultuous end of her relationship with Johnny. She said it was particularly difficult to maintain her career and she “had to fight” for the role of Mera in DC.. According to her, her ex-husband mounted a “smear campaign” to call her a liar in front of the foreign press.
Recall that the trial began on April 11 in the US state of Virginia, Johnny claiming 50 million dollars in moral damages. Amber, in turn, filed a lawsuit against him for US$100 million.
