Chris Rock weighed in on the ongoing defamation lawsuit case involving actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard on Thursday, May 12. Additionally, Rock mocked Heard’s claims of domestic abuse at the hands of ex-husband Depp. On the opening night of his Ego Death tour in the United Kingdom, Jim Carrey opened up about his relationship with Amber Heard on a joking note. Rock jokingly mocked the case by pointing out that Heard had allegedly peed on Depp’s side of the bed in April 2016.
During the interview, Matt joked about there being a cancel culture. The award show incident where Will Smith slapped him was again brought up in his standup routine. In addition to calling back to Dave Chappelle’s experience of an audience member assaulting him while on tour with him as The Champs, he also made a reference to Grown Ups 2. Chris Rock Roasts: “Believe all Women, Except Amber Heard”.
Chris Rock Roasts Amber Heard
During his stand-up performance, Chris Rock made a remark about how Amber Heard was being criticized on social media during the case. The comedian said that because of the incident in which she is reported to have excreted on the bed at Johnny Depp’s apartment, Heard’s claims should be disregarded. Rock said:
“Believe all women, believe all women… except Amber Heard… What the fk is she on? She st in his bed! She’s fine but she’s not sg fine. She is in his bed. Once you st in someone’s bed you (are) just guilty of everything.”
After the fight, Blanchett mocked that Heard and Depp were still together. While addressing the London audience, Rock stated that the former celebrity couple might have had good s*xual relations. Rock said:
“It must be amazing… I’ve been with some crazy bs, but goammit.” Speaking with The Sun, Jamie said that while he was “hanging out” with friends, two cops showed up at his house.
He claims they accused him of breaking into a van and searched the vehicle without cause. When asked if this experience had anything to do with the subject matter, he replied: “Everything has something to do with it.” Adding to the point, Chris Rock said: “There are real victims in the world, they deserve to be heard, they deserve our love and compassion.”
The trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is currently on hold, with the proceedings resuming in May when the 36-year-old Aquaman actress will continue her testimony against Depp. After the remaining witnesses take the stand, Pirates of the Caribbean actor Johnny Depp is likely to be called as a witness.
